5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the 1 star review, 15 Jan 2014
This review is from: Psychic (Audio CD)
criminal that his/her review has dragged the score down on this - as stated a slow burner but full of hooks and melody - probably worth 4 stars to be honest but seeing as the 1 star review (from somebody who has awarded scissor sisters 5 stars in another review!!) has dragged the average down i'm giving it 5. If you liked the A1 ep from a couple of years ago you'll like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jigsaw pieces, 24 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great compilation, highly listenable. Some obscure tracks with others more familiar, but all can be heard within the music of Spacemen 3 and for that reason I love it. There's garage, soul, jazz and blues and whilst some of the influences on the Spacemen 3 sound are more obvious than others they all fit together like a jigsaw. If you like Spacemen3 you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book blew my mind, 24 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Such an interesting book , it looks back on the history of the KLF and the K foundation and the infamous burning of a million pounds and asks the question - why did they do it? I identified with a lot of the idea's and concepts raised and several times had the feeling that these things were often in my mind but I had never verbalised them. I cant recommend it enough and have just bought Higgs book on Timothy Leary hoping for more of the same. This is a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 18 July 2013
This review is from: Free Reign (MP3 Download)
New to Clinic - have always meant to get round to listening to them and, in anticipation of this years PsychFest in Liverpool where they will play, I decided to get their latest. Its great. Mellow space rock with driving grooves. Reminded me of Suicide, Spoon and Can in places. Off to get their back catalogue.

1.0 out of 5 stars A false economy, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
wanted a cheap mp3 player for when I'm in the garden or on holiday and thought this looked and sounded ok from the reviews - product arrived promptly. Took an age to load up with music (55 albums give or take) as it is usb 1 technology but no complaints as it is stated in the product description. Actually using the thing was a nightmare. Expected it to be basic but its pretty useless and trying to navigate through the music was pretty much impossible. Added to that there is the sound quality - using my own headphones it was scratchy, low volume etc In short I'd give this product a swerve and save yourself 8 as its just not useable - I've gone for a refurbed sansa clip plus at twice the price so fingers crossed thats an improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars To those that have given this album I salute you...., 31 Mar 2013
This review is from: Bandwagonesque (Audio CD)
with my middle finger. Idiots. This lp is great, an early 90's classic of melody and noise blended to perfection. Lyrically strong too its right up there with the best of TFC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality product & service, 10 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having invested in a new 40" flatscreen was looking for a decent stand. Original Budget was 50 but the ones in the stores and online just looked a little too flimsy. Happened upon this after reading that Alphason were a reputable maker and was attracted by the design and the stiff reduction in price. A little online research showed that this product was for sale on many other sites at a much higher price so I took the plunge and ordered it. Arrived less than 24 hours later and upon opening the box could tell it was of a good build quality straight away. Assembly was a cinch - took me 30 minutes from opening the box (and i am more than capable of botching up a flat pack) and it looks the part, is solid and I am more than happy. Looks and feels like a much more expensive piece of kit. Great service too!
