1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't really work, 6 Jan. 2014
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: HEXBUG nano V2 Hurricane (Toy)
We have not managed to build anything that the bug can get all the way around, as it almost always gets stuck at upwards curves and vertical sections. So then you have to take it apart to get the bug out. How this ever got past testing is a mystery. A very disappointing Christmas present for a 4 year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, angry, punk, 20 April 2004
Want to know how raw and angry a punk record this is? Consider the album cover, the album title and the song titles. And cosider the fact that the first 45 seconds of the CD consist of some punk screaming hiself sick.
What Wattie and co are so angry about is evident from the song titles. These songs, every last one, are delivered with enough bile to drown the system that every good punk detests.
Make no mistake, this is not melodic or pop punk, this is crusty, snotty punk, from the heart and from the spleen. If you like your punk fast, angry, obnoxious, raw and as rough as industrial grade sandpaper, get this now. The Exploited are at the top of their game.

2.0 out of 5 stars bland and dull EBM, 15 April 2004
This review is from: Futureperfect (Audio CD)
A bit of an improvement on previous efforts, but VNV mostly still leave me cold. There's nothing inherently wrong or offensive about their music, but then there's nothing much right about it either. To my ear, it's just bland, dull pop/dance with uninspired vocals. The cynic in me suspects this is why they've headlined the last 2 goth festivals I've attended, above far more challenging and (in my opinion) superior acts such as God Module and XPQ 21.
An exception is 'Beloved', which has a great, infectious vocal hook, earning the album it's second star.
I know this review flies in the face of accepted EBM wisdom, and if you're a mainstream bleep-head you'll probably love this to death. Personally, I like my music with more to it.
