1.0 out of 5 stars I Love You... not, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Love You. (Audio CD)
Poor songs, except for "Sweater Weather", and poor production. Apart from the one 'hit', nothing to recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Whigs, 2 Jun 2014

This review is from: Do to the Beast (Audio CD)
I got into the Afghan Whigs a bit late and via album '1965' which I adored. Through later incarnations as 'Twilight Singers' and collaborations with Mark Lanagan, I have continues my love affair with the sleazy and dark meanderings of Greg Dulli's psyche.
This album takes me back to that earlier Afghan Whigs' time and feels like a seamless 'next album'. Ignore the tendency to write the same song over and over, and the strained vocals on some tracks; this is a proper rock album to sit alongside your QOTSA collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pixies alive and very well, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Indie Cindy (Audio CD)
When you are one of the most influential bands ever, but haven't recorded anything of note, either together or separately, for 20 years, then lose one of your keynote sounds ( Kim Deal's bass) from those early 'classics', you are courting disaster. What's more, the angular, jagged, odd tempo originality of your early work has been taken up by everybody since and become 'mainstream'.
If this were not a Pixies' album, it would be hailed as one of the best indie-pop recordings of the year ( with nods to producer Gil Norton and his engineer Dan Austin), with tracks 'What Goes Boom', 'Greens and Blues', 'Bagboy' and title track 'Indie Cindy' as outstanding examples of indie-pop at it's best - only 'Ring The Bell' let's the side down but 11/12 isn't bad! There was never going to be a 'Bone Machine' here, so accept this album for what it is - brilliant indie-pop for the 21st century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great production, 14 Mar 2014

This review is from: Warpaint (Audio CD)
You get the feeling as the album progresses that the production is beginning to keep the album alive - samey songs tend to get a little tired after a while but the terrific percussive drive is kept up throughout.

Some interesting ideas and some influences from the better bands ( Pink Floyd, Manson) but let down by poor production.

5 year old granddaughter loves this machine - easy to use, sturdy for little hands, nice design and ( for her) lovely colour. Currently uses only the CD player, so cannot comment on how good the radio is.

5.0 out of 5 stars DAC box, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a small cheap converter for improving the sound from my budget Toshiba TV with built-in DVD player, by playing it through my hi-fi system. This neat box of tricks does the job perfectly. Comes with a power cable and has a bright LED on light. It arrived swiftly and well packaged in a neat Apple-style box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wire new album, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Change Becomes Us (Audio CD)
They never fail to come up with original and interesting material. This album, although very modern in production quality, has the feel and sound of the very first Pink Floyd album and singles. Wire have taken on the spirit of Syd Barrett.

4.0 out of 5 stars Six By Seven new album, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it's been a long time with many other bands imitating their style, this album feels very fresh and totally up to date thanks to the production by Dan Austin. First track sets the tone for the rest which can become a little repetitive in places but overall a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Copper effect paint, 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed replacement for Dulux Copper Effect paint used on coving, door frames , skirting and picture frames. Rivals were all too large a quantity, too expensive and/or not water-based. This is ideal and exactly matches the Dulux version I had originally used. Easy to use, easy to clean brushes and durable.
