4.0 out of 5 stars almost sublime, 19 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Like Clockwork (Audio CD)
QOTS manage to create an almost perfect album that rises, emotes and ranges across British rock genres-Bowie's ziggy , Radiohead and Beatles Abbey road and Pink Floyd in their own style - the only fall from grace is the opening track that drags- but the rest builds to an engrossing emotional climax as the album progresses- and leaves you wanting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars new revelations, 18 Aug 2011
A strong book, if you enjoy the subject matter surrounding the medieval development of English culture.
It sheds new light on the struggle between the north and south, the power vacuum that emerged as a result of Edward V1 's schizophrenia (not widely known) and the after math of an exhaustive war with France, that left the English at each others throats, brutalised and increasingly conflicted.
Towton, little known, as a result of the largest slaughter between the English , and hushed up by the establishment, is now viewed for the first time in all its shameful gory.

George Goodwin does the nation a service, with his painstaking and fascinating research. The only note of caution is his tendency to complicate the prose style, into a sometimes muddling description of complex relationships.Then again he is a first rate historian, rather than classic proser.. I loved it for its content..
