5.0 out of 5 stars A superb second offering, 15 Sep 2011
This review is from: No Way Out (Audio CD)
Gaskin's second album follows in the footsteps of their debut album "End of the World".

They have a new lead singer, and the band seem even tighter and more polished, again the lead guitar and drums stand out.

The song writing is still as poetic as on their first album and you just can't help tapping your feet as you listen.

A much underrated band and album.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb NWOBHM album, 15 Sep 2011
This review is from: End Of The World (Audio CD)
A great CD re-release of their 1981 debut LP. The early 1980s had many bands that evolved into the NWOBHM style, many of whom went on to great success. Gaskin never quite attained the success they deserved, this album has many great tracks on Despiser, I'm no fool, Sweet dream maker to name just three.

Their style has many classic rock influences Judas Priest etc. and the guitar and drums are quite superb.

Do yourself a favour and buy this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars nothing wrong with my dvd!!!!!!, 15 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do not understand the other two review that say the print is bad...

My DVD is fine, the quality of film transfers is fine, audio is fine also.

Great value for two films, just thought it is worth redressing the balance here, as I am very happy with my purchase.

Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars great footage of a great band, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
have to review this to give a balanced view, some reviews here are too damning...

this dvd uses all the remaining footage of the IOW show, the film crew went on a long break and very little remained shot. Thus, what was left has been well crafted together with other IOW shots etc.

DVD comes in the card fold out case, with insert.

A band in its prime, just buy it...

5.0 out of 5 stars a fantastic read!, 21 April 2011
Some absolutely wonderful poems and observations lie in wait for you within these pages, an off the wall, surreal and sometimes downright weird look at the world.

I forecast great things for DJMcCairns and his alter-ego Sid Ozalid.

His grasp of words is like a jeweller, cutting and shaping and polishing until they become diamonds of air...

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful dvd, 23 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have to say that i am a big HVK fan, and i love his interpretations of these two symphonies.

video quality is good, and the editing is what youd expect from 1980s technology and style, but i found it quite engaging and well thought out.

audio quality is what i expected from this time period, but for my ears was perfectly good enough. of course had it been sound recorded nowadays it would be much fuller.

so all in all i am very happy with this and will be buying more from this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great western, 10 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this film as it was a Batjac production (john wayne) and their prvious releases were remastered and had great extras.

This film follows that trend. The film is very well shot, has great acting in it aswell as a great story that is drip fed to us, showing the lead characters motivations.

if you want a great example of a 1950s western done well, buy this..... worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars great budget set, 4 May 2010
16 CDs in card covers, in a thick card box, and a booklet... all for a budget price.

It is true that there maybe better recordings EMI could have used, however the recordings that are chosen a very good examples.

If you want a good set of Chopin's complete works, at a budget price, this is the set to go for.
