1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon 'Prime'?, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metropolis (Amazon Video)
One star - not for the film, which is undeniably a classic, but for the quality of the Amazon Prime file. It is truly awful, especially when they bill it as HD! Considering the film has been remastered on numerous occasions, there must be a better streamed version available? There's a well-received Blu-ray, Amazon Prime - you sell it, after all. This streamed version is the polar opposite!
The issues are not related to file compression or bandwidth, by the way. The scan is badly framed, missing captions to the top, bottom, left and right of the screen, plus it's excessively soft and smothered with film grain. I've never seen the film look so bad. It's the equivalent of someone taking a mobile phone into a cinema to pirate a movie and sitting at the back of the auditorium. With a bag on their head. Appalling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old Man Made, 4 May 2005
This review is from: Man-Made (Audio CD)
It's been five years since "Howdy!", and TFC have drifted into even softer territory in their advancing years. The band are ageing gracefully, and "Man-Made" reflects a greyness at the temples and a creeping of crows feet around the eyes. I imagine they sat down a lot while recording this album.
Gentle, almost folky songs, a lifetime away from their meatier teenage years.
I've grown old with Teenage Fanclub too, and this album makes me long for the youthful vigour I had when "A Catholic Education" and "Bandwagonesque" were in my tape player.
Don't get me wrong, this is in no way a "bad" album, but it just makes me feel terribly old!
Norman, like the devil, still writes the best tunes.
