Sigh No More

Price: £8.37

3.0 out of 5 stars How many more re-issues?, 28 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Sigh No More (Audio CD)
I would have given 5 stars for the original album and the heading for tomorrow/sigh no more double - I've marked this down because it is yet another re-issue not long after the last!

The older Gamma Ray albums are hard to get at a fair price. I was therefore pleased when they began the '2 albums in one package' re-issue except they only covered the first 4 albums. Now they've begun yet another re-issue program with bonus CD's - sounds like they are trying to rip off the fans. Come on, re-issue the other albums (Powerplant, Somewhere in Time etc)

5.0 out of 5 stars value for money, 25 Jan. 2016

value for money. The brand name filters are overpriced for something you are recommended to change at every water change (forthnightly). In practice I usually turn the filter over and get a month's life from each!

5.0 out of 5 stars they rock, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent album reminiscent of the Roadrunner United album a few years ago. I'm not keen on cookie monster vocals which thankfully only occurs on the opening track. The deluxe edition contains a 'making of' DVD which you will probably only watch once but is worth the extra price because of the bonus track which is a good all-star cover of Dio's 'We Rock'

This review is from: Songs for the Dead (MP3 Download)
EP with 4 non-album songs which are up to Engel's usual high standards. Shame amazon don't stock this as a physical CD but at this reduced price for the mp3 you can't wrong (OK, I had a bit of trouble downloading the thing from Amazon due to Internet Explorer security controls but I got over that)

This review is from: Red Lamb (Audio CD)
From the previous reviews I was apprehensive about the packaging think that I was going to just get a CD-R so I was pleased to receive a proper digi-book style CD with proper label and a full booklet that includes photos and the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars does what it's supposed to, 5 Sept. 2013

for 5p + £1.95 p&p, I was a bit sceptical but it works well connecting a raspberry pi (HDMI) to a Samsung monitor (DVD-I) - bargain

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bundle, 24 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Levitation (Audio CD)
OK it was the first studio album after Robert Calvert left and a brave new change in sonic direction but it is an excellent album in its own right although perhaps not that 'classic' Hawkwind sound of the albums that came before. Unlike the recent 3-disc 'Warriors' set which is basically 3 discs of different mixes of the album plus some poorly recorded live tracks, the 'Levitation' 3-disc set is probably the best that Atomhenge have done featuring not just the original album but some good Hawklord bonus tracks including the full version of Valium Ten but also 2-CDs featuring the Lewisham concert. Only criticism is that that concert is actually split over all 3 CDs.

This review is from: Master of Confusion (Audio CD)
A few thrash covers, one decent new song and a load of live stuff. Not bad considering the price but really just an exercise in keeping the fans happy until the next studio album

4.0 out of 5 stars some good stuff, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a sampler from Roadrunner there are some great stuff (Slash, Stone Sour, Airbourne), some maybe-it-will-grow-on-me stuff (Korn doing dubstep) and a few with cookie-monster vocals that I don't like. But since it's free, you can't complain

5.0 out of 5 stars classic cover, 25 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Down In The Park (MP3 Download)
Marilyn Manson does an excellent take on the lesser-known single from the Gary Numan/Tubeway Army 'Replicas' album, taking the chilling broody nightmarish vision of an apocalyptic future (which inspired Terminator, The Matrix etc.) and making it even more. This was actually what would have been called a B-side in the days of vinyl to the 'Lunchbox' single from Manson's brilliant debut album in the days when he was known for doing stunning cover versions.
