1.0 out of 5 stars It's cheap because it is useless, 21 Oct 2013
After 4 weeks of use the 3 cables I bought from this lot have all stopped working. Cheap counterfeit rubbish. AVOID!

2.0 out of 5 stars Makes you realise how poor 90's music was, 6 May 2011
This review is from: Unbelievable Vol.1 (Audio CD)
Aside from the Stone Roses track, listening to this album made me appreciate how soulless the 90's was. Just a load of gimmicky flappy "Madchester" beats with no soul. Even the signature track by EMF is just a riff with a load of crap lyrics sung badly.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" guide for pilots and their wives!, 9 April 2010
Captain Burkhill and his wife recount the days, weeks and months that followed the crash of BA38 in often uncomfortable honesty. I finished the book feeling that most 'players' in the story were all suffering to some extent a form of PTSD. Whether it was the management, Union Reps or Pete himself. God-Forbid, if you ever find yourself in Pete's situation, you will be better prepared having read his story.

Price: £5.02

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Nile's hyperactive girlfriend?, 8 Feb 2010
This review is from: Ellipse (Audio CD)
Somewhat disillusioned with the current crop of female 'mockney' vocalists with their gobby posturing and regurgitated pop?
Imogen Heap is a bit of solace. I am a late discoverer, but upon listening to this album I was immediately struck by how uniquely intelligent some of her songs are. She often eschews the 'obvious' resolution in her melody lines, leaving the listener intrigued. She litters her songs with sonic oddities and quirkiness that for someone like me, a cynic of mainstream pop, is hugely refreshing.

If you were a fan of "Blue Nile" then Imogen Heap will be right up your street. Less minimalist but she embroiders her songs from the same thread. There's also a touch of "The Sundays" in there too.

Imogen deserves a place at the top table with Kate Bush and Tori Amos on the basis of this Album. Keep up the good work Ms Heap!

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year, 23 Jun 2008
This review is from: Consolers Of The Lonely (Audio CD)
This is one of those albums I put on if someone complains that music 'is not what it used to be'. It is a rare moment where brilliant musicians and song writers find themselves in the studio at the top of their game. No pretensions. Pure, honest Rock and Roll. All the influences are there. Townsend, Page etc....
It's a shame the first single was 'I salute..' because this is the weakest on the album in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars He must be fun at Dinner Parties, 28 Sep 2007
If Gaia must have her revenge on us, then so be it. James Lovelock just makes sure we are aware that we are wholeheartedly to blame for her wrath.
I have never read a more depressing book. If 6 billion is unsustainable and 1 billion would be more appropriate to the Gaian theory, then please explain how, in 30 years we lose the 5 billion?

I can recommend this to some people. Read this if you are poor at maths and have no children.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Pixar so far..., 18 Feb 2004
Those familiar with the PIXAR catalogue will find the most recent release the funniest yet. Whilst "Toy Story 1+2" concentrated on the 'Super Hero' characterisation (which mainly appealed to boys) and "Monsters Inc" took a stab at appealing to girls, "Finding Nemo" is finally the film that Pixar managed to appeal to ALL children. The subject of 'Family' is the at the core of the film and as a result accompanying adults will find the film as moving as the children they are sitting with.
If you're a hard working Dad and would like the opportunity to make up for those long days at work, this film is a chance for you to share an inspired attempt by Pixar to define the wonder that is parenthood and the lengths that you will go to protect your children. Your kids will cuddle you too tightly in the shark scene though!
