2.0 out of 5 stars Lift music, 17 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doo-Bop (Audio CD)
This is a disappointing album. It feels like the mixing desk was the most important instrument, and the sublime qualities of Mr Davis's playing are subjugated to the formulaic 'chill out' sound this album so clearly strives to create.

It is a waste of Miles Davis's abilities. Avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original studio tracks are better than these live versions, 17 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulse (Audio CD)
A live album can contain a degree of excitement that a studio album often fails to achieve. In the case of a band like Pink Floyd, whose studio albums from Dark Side of the Moon onwards were perfected to such a high degree, it is impossible to achieve the same standard of perfection live. The answer to this for a live audience is to add lighting and stage effects. A sound recording misses this trick. Another response to the problem can be for the band to give the audience something different sonically - different versions of the tracks, guest musicians etc. This album's problem lies with the fact that the Floyd have attempted to get as close to the original sound as possible but without achieving it. So, don't bother.

This review is from: 1000 Garden Ideas (Hardcover)
Its a great book for ideas. Mainly photos, it allows you to consider the design possibilities for a garden or courtyard without sifting through reams of other books or the internet for inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's brilliance grows on you, 16 Aug 2011
Not quite as immediately impactful as the début album but an evolution of the soundscape of Tonbruket. The more you hear it the more you hear in it. A beautiful piece of work.

There is something about the Nordic sound. If you like this album, check out The Thread of Life by Magnus Olstrom.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, 16 Aug 2011
I was dubious about buying and installing a battery for an Apple product but found both straightforward. The battery itself has not improved the battery life of the phone but I think that is a phone problem. You can find instructions on installation on YouTube.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too "sensible shoes" for me, 12 May 2010
This review is from: Sensible Shoes (Audio CD)
Compared to the latest offerings from Acoustic Ladyland and Polar Bear, Led Bib's new album is far from sparkling. It lacks the rawness and punk jazz fun of the two Seb Rochford bands, partly due, I suspect to the sound recording - it lacks the 'live' feel that this sort of music should have. I have not heard Led Bib live and no doubt their on-stage persona is all that their publicity suggests; if that is the case, I don't think it translates into a decent sound on CD.

If you are seeking fun, thought-provoking, new music, check out the aforementioned bands first. Led Bib are too 'sensible shoes' in comparison.


Living With a Tiger

5.0 out of 5 stars No Singing, thank God!, 8 April 2010
This review is from: Living With a Tiger (Audio CD)
Most rocky album to date. There's some pretty wild stuff in here. The electric guitar adds hugely to the harder edged sound. Some great bass playing too by the other new member of the band.

Thankfully there is no singing on this album, so I don't need to keep skipping tracks!

Consider this album as loud and nasty pub-rock with no singing, punk and jazz influences, some brilliant tonal changes and dirty sax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh; its good!, 8 April 2010
This review is from: Peepers (Audio CD)
Fresh, fun, fantastic. Best Polar Bear album so far.

Note for the Polar Bear virgins out there: its not rock; its not jazz really, but it is more that than anything; its just fun and clever, raw, acoustic, small-venue music.

Leafcutter John's contribution is subtle but valuable.


The Edwardian Home (Shire Album)

5.0 out of 5 stars A small book with a big impact., 2 Nov 2009
For a small book, The Edwardian Home, is full of interest and knowledge. Well written, informative and with many copies of old advertisements and photographs it makes a handy reference guide. As an inquisitive Edwardian home-owner myself, I found many facts new to me, and a couple of Arts & Crafts houses hitherto unknown to me - including the incredible looking Debenham House.

This is not a long book but is a fine starting point for anyone interested in how the Edwardians lived.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, quality bit of kit, 10 Sep 2009
It is only when you handle the goods that you can judge the quality. Belkin are a reputable brand which helps in making a purchasing decision which is why I bought these USB extension cables from them. They are very nicely put together and do feel better quality than other similar products I have purchased. They work very well too. I have joined two 4.8m cables with no apparent loss of functionality.
