5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic...., 14 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Fallen Empires (Audio CD)
Fantastic new album,but then,are they ever anything less than beautiful?
This is no major departure from the last two albums but it is much more spacious and free-flowing,more majestic but subtley so....the music breathes instead of chugging at you but...those melodies...those lyrics...the delivery....it's still so utterly,smartly Snow Patrol.
Well done guys.You deserve so much more recognition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pardon?, 10 Nov. 2011
I'm not one who decries foreign language films in the slightest,my favourite films of the past decade or so being foreign (Pans Lab,Aftershock,Let The Right One In et al...)
But please....If you are going to release a FOREIGN LANGUAGE DVD in the UK at least provide us with SUBTITLES!!!!
And yes I have searched all the options!!
Annoyed!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful., 21 Oct. 2011
This is just the most frustrating thing i've ever had to apply to anything I ever owned.
I had problems with the iphone screen protector but even a light fitting i purchased from next that took me six hours to assemble didnt come close to how frustratingly bad this thing is.
Avoid at all costs....there must be something better out there.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A Smashing Return,, 19 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Hysterical (Audio CD)
WOW!
I love it and it's made me sooooooo happy! :-
I so wanted this album to be as good as their previous two because I honestly thought that they could fade into obscurity after how poorly received ''Thunder'' was.
Glad to say that this is as melodic and fresh as anything they have previously achieved,perhaps a little more accessible BUT all the better for it...it's still mental....it's still a Clap Your Hands Say Yeah party,thankfully.
A blast.
Chuffed!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very sexy but doesnt give, 4 July 2011
Ok it looks great BUT it doesn't perform well,has various annoying faults and is pretty pricey.
Faults include a very weak docking arm connection (which,if you are not 'precisely' careful with,will scratch the back of your brand new ipod very badly,very easily), an ever increasing high-pitched squealing noise which in the late hours can be very annoying if playing music at a lower volume,it CANNOT HANDLE BASS FREQUENCIES AT ALL WELL ON MOST SETTINGS,and,though this may seem a little too picky,the cloth/fabric to the front of the dock is very very difficult to maintain the fresh new appearance of as it collects dust like a dyson hoover!!!
All in all,there are docks out there which look as cool,perform far better and cost a hell of a lot less.
I wont be investing in any other products by this company.After wanting this item for eons i am sorely disappointed and grateful that it was purchased as a gift for me.
Dont buy it!!


Belkin Retractable Mini Mouse, Silver / Black
Belkin Retractable Mini Mouse, Silver / Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 29 Jun. 2011
Have just installed this to use on my laptop and it's a really excellent product which I think has been given a slight overhaul having read some previous reviews.The clicking is soft and feels quite plush to me,in fact the product itself feels like good quality.A previous reviewer mentioned that the retractability feels far stronger than the mouse itself and i have to agree with her,BUT,if you are anything like me and cant bear all the wires messing up the look of your neat little desk you cant go wrong with this item.You will just feel a slight pull as you use it but it's not restricting at all AND if you pull it out to a certain length it has a 'click/stay' mechanism to eradicate that pull feeling because the length will remain at whatever length feels better for you (it then returns to its shortest length when you require it to----maybe the previous reviewer didnt realise this at the time or maybe it was part of the overhaul??)
Anyway,for me,so far,it's a neat,quality product and the wires cant get caught in my slippers everytime i stand up so it's cool with me.Worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very,very so-so!, 4 May 2011
Was quite looking forward to watching this movie but overall it bored me.
Apart from the gorgeous posing and posturing from Josh (not to mention the great Radiohead soundtrack) there was nothing much that grabbed or held my attention.
I think the highlights were a few gruesome scenes with a hammer and Josh getting out of bed with what looked remarkably like a little morning wood in his boxers!
Not a lot else can be said apart from that i found it artsy-fartsy,difficult to follow and a pretty dull watch.
It's not a movie that i will watch again even though i now own the DVD.
Leaves no lasting impression either.
See for yourself....

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS HOW TO DO IT, 28 April 2011
This review is from: Mondo Amore (Audio CD)
BLIMEY! NICOLE MATURES AND PROVES SHE HAS BALLS IS THE HEADLINE.CAN SHE ROCK? DO BEARS POOP IN THE WOODS?
IF THERE WAS ANY JUSTICE IN THE WORLD AT ALL,NICOLE WOULD BE ENORMOUSLY FAMOUS A LA LADY GAGA PROPORTIONS BUT I'M KINDA ENJOYING REVELLING IN THE BEAUTY OF HER RELATIVE ANONYMITY BEFORE SHE GOES GLOBAL IN A PHENOMENAL WAY.SURELY THIS AMOUNT OF TALENT CANT GO UNNOTICED FOR MUCH LONGER.
HER MUSIC IS SO BLINDINGLY FANTASTIC I'VE EVEN THOUGHT OF TURNING MYSELF INTO A CARDBOARD ADVERTISING SANDWICH BOARD AND TROLLING AROUND THE STREETS OF LIVERPOOL ON HER BEHALF! SAD BUT TRUE.
IF YOU ENJOY LED ZEP,SCOTT WALKER,THE RONETTES,THE SHIRELLES,ROY ORBISON,PSYCHADELICA,60'S PANACHE,SWIRLING STRINGS,POP GEMS,MOODY AND DARK WHIMSY ALL TOPPED OFF WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL AND SOARING VOICE,ALL I CAN SAY IS....CHECK THIS OUT....YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
EXCELLENT FOLLOW UP TO HER SUBLIME DEBUT 'NEPTUNE CITY' AND A LONG TIME COMING! THIS IS MUSIC FROM THE HEART AND THE BRAIN AND GETS A WHOPPING 10/10 FROM ME.MAGICAL AND MESMERISING. WELL DONE NICOLE.COME TO THE UK SOON!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why oh why?, 21 April 2011
This review is from: Stone [DVD] (DVD)
Deary deary me!! This is absolutely pish!
Why oh why Frances Conroy ever decided to do this is beyond me,never mind the other three huge stars,De Niro,Norton and Jovovich!!! I love them all!!
Oh,I think i may have just answered my own question Lol.
What a completely fantastic cast,what a wasted opportunity,what a complete sham.
The one star given is just for the chance to see the amazing Frances Conroy (Ma in Six Feet Under) getting a fresh airing.
It gets no stars for anything else,it just doesn't work!
I felt that Norton was dumbing down a previous role (American whatever it was...) to ride on past glories,De Niro did De Nothing and Jovovich was so cliched as the scheming,air-head it just came across as completely contrived.
I regret buying the Peppermint Aero i purchased along with the Dvd,although even that was far more thrilling.
Avoid at all costs!
