4.0 out of 5 stars Brief but beautiful, 17 Jun 2013
This review is from: Holloway (Hardcover)
Just feel it should be pointed out that this is a book of only 22 pages (including drawings). It's as long as a newspaper essay or article. It's very good but at the price very expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars lost soon to be classic, 19 Feb 2008
This review is from: Jukebox Sparrows (Audio CD)
Shannon McNally made a record that was cruelly ignored by the head honchos at her record company and by the fickle taste-makers of the US media. Nonetheless this is a wonderful rock and soul record, fuelled by a fantastic rhythm section and lyrics which would not have seemed out of place on Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. Yes it's a little slick in places and like so many albums overly long. But Bitter Blue is a masterpiece of simmering longing and with Down and Dirty makes a pair of sensual songs depicting a woman managing her desire in song.

5.0 out of 5 stars tangerine dream with tunes, 8 May 2007
This review is from: Days of Mars [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Four long pieces of keyboard based wordless music but you really have to listen to each track to hear the subtle changes of melody and colour. Each track seems to anticipate the next so by the final fourth track all the suggestions and hints seem to have collaborated.

This reminds me of Tangerine Dream and Skylab. Of dance music and Moby's more melancholy instrumentals, of Kraftwerk remixes and soundtracks for the films I imagine I make.

If you find the DFA gang too arch and knowing don't be put off and I don't feel this often but buy it on CD not on vinyl so that the 50 minutes pass as as a blur like staring out of the window of a fast train.
