4.0 out of 5 stars On Song!, 8 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Living Years (Kindle Edition)
If you're a fan of early Genesis, the book adds context to some of your favourite music; little that's wholly new, but presented in a candid way and with sincere respect for other band members and crew. Mike's text is occasionally annotated with his Father's narrative - small sections of his memoirs. The writer's intention is usually to draw parallels between the lives of father and son, and they work reasonably well, but you might also sense in it a craving for paternal approval. Mike's relationship with his father is explored and their mutual love and respect is evident albeit in the traditionally muted style of the British middle classes. It's all distilled in the words of Mike's hit "The Living Years", co-written with B A Robertson.

One highlight is Mike's description of the agony of a year spent away from home - if ever you could sympathise with a tax exile...

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Reservations, 28 Jun 2009
The clock is easy to setup and the projection function is configurable to allow legible display on the ceiling or wall. The colour changing function is a useless gimmick because all of the colours except red render poorly on the projected display. However, you can easily fix the colour to red. My biggest gripe is that the clock face features horrible backlighting making it difficult to read from more than a couple of metres away (of course if the clock is right next to your bed you're ok). This means that you can tell the time at night - it's clearly projected, but by early morning when the daylight obscures the projection you have to get out of bed to see what the time is!
