5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend!, 31 May 2012
A beautiful book packed with fabulous reproductions of superb artwork by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Margaret MacDonald, Gustav Klimt and many other artists. Absolutely delightful gift to have received and the best art book on my shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must have!, 31 May 2012
This review is from: 40 Years of Queen (Hardcover)
One of the best ever xmas presents. The perfect gift for any Queen fan! A beautiful book that has been thoughtfully and perfectly put together. Loads of fab extras too ....one of the best for me was that letter from Freddie....to read that on xmas day was quite something.....

A fantastic celebration of 40 years of the mighty Queen and a book to be treasured and dipped into over and over!

Don't hesitate to buy it and explore it's delights for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating!, 31 May 2012
This review is from: Queen Unseen (Hardcover)
Given to me as a mother's day prezzie and very much appreciated! It's a fascinating insight into life on the road with the greatest of rock bands. Peter has shared some super anecdotes about Fred and the rest of the guys as well as some great photos of them. Written with love and respect but also with honesty by one of the team. Not going to put any spoilers out there ....just buy it and read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant says it all!, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brilliant (Audio CD)
Superb, brilliant, amazing, fantastic and one of the best albums I've heard in a very long time! Music for anyone who loves really great music.....can't recommend it highly enough! Love it! Didn't really expect to instantly like every song to be honest and indeed one of the slower paced songs was a grower but grow it did and now love them all. Not many albums where one doesn't want to skip any tracks at all! The more one plays it, the more one wants to play it again and again and again.......

A great mix of faster paced upbeat songs that are full of energy and give one a heckuva high interspersed with some hauntingly poignant slower paced ones. All very emotive and all very distinctively Ultravox......at their best! One can't fail to be moved by the music and the evocative lyrics....and those vocals are fab!

Could say more but why not just buy it and find out for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Ure Instrumentals, 25 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Went to Coney Island (Audio CD)
The CD arrived today from Amazon ......the music is absolutely excellent and so atmospheric....love it! Brilliant stuff.....definitely my kind of instrumental music...

Seriously if you like Midge's instrumental music and haven't got this album then buy it...you won't regret it!

The only track that I'm not quite so keen on is track 15 which isn't an instrumental anyway....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album, 13 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gift (Audio CD)
I still remember the moment I first heard 'If I Was' way back........one of my all time favourite songs and often played on a loop. Other gems on this album include 'That Certain Smile' and 'She Cried'. I much prefer Midge's version of 'Living in the past' to the original and there is Midge's version of 'Man who sold the world'. Bowie was good but Midge is absolutely brilliant!
All in all it's an excellent solo album....the start of a solo career that has given us some outstanding albums from Mr Ure.....hopefully with more to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs that make you think!, 13 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Answers to Nothing (Audio CD)
Some excellent songs on this album, songs that make you think.....my kind of songs.....listen to the words of 'Hell to Heaven'! Other favourite tracks include 'Just for you', 'Lied' and 'Honorare'. And there is the very poignant 'Homeland' written following the tragic death of Phil Lynott. 'Sister and Brother' great collaboration with Kate Bush. 'Dear God'....listen to the lyrics.....you don't have to believe in a God to relate to this!
Midge is a brilliant singer/songwriter/musician and this album reflects that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent live album, 13 Jan. 2009
This really is an excellent live album....Midge out on the road with his band and what a fantastic mix of his own solo songs with Ultravox songs. I've played it on a loop countless times....in fact I'm about to do it again.....one of my all time favourite live albums!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant,outstanding, excellent what more can I say!, 13 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breathe (Audio CD)
This is another of those rare albums that for me only Midge can produce ie where you instantly love every single song and play it over and over again! I have been so inspired by this album and its hard to single songs out as favourites when you love all of them but the most moving has to be the amazing and spine tingling 'Breathe'.....that song touches my soul on so many levels.

Midge is an outstandingly gifted songwriter, musician, singer and performer.....the best there is and this album reflects that. What an amazing voice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul touchingly brilliant, emotional, inspiring, moving........., 13 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Move Me (Audio CD)
It is rare that every single song on an album touches your soul so deeply as this one does mine......These songs are all so emotional, so much part of Midge's personal journey, so moving, so inspirational. This truly is the most moving album I've ever heard....

I have been so inspired by this album and its hard to single songs out as favourites when all of them are so brilliant but the most moving have to be 'Let Me Go', 'Alone' and 'Somebody'.

'You Move Me'...brilliant song, brilliant video!

Midge is an outstandingly gifted songwriter, musician, singer and performer.....the best there is and this album reflects that. What an amazing voice!
