5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Class., 15 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
O.K. I Know there are a few Nazareth compilations available,the main difference with this one is it not only contains all the major singles,but it also includes some album tracks which otherwise may of been missed by anyone wanting an introduction to one of the greatest bands ever to walk this earth.One of the great bonus's of this cd are the album tracks featured are included in their uncut versions where as tracks like "Telegram" has appeared before but in edited versions.The real bonus is the inclusion of the awesome "No Mean City" in its complete version. The only minor gripe with the cd is the fact the running order, all the well known tracks ie singles are on cd 1,why not mix the track listing up so some of the better known tracks are mixed in with the later material on cd 2.But don't let that put you off buy the cd and turn the volume up to full and listen to a truly brilliant band at the peak of their power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable., 20 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a suprise this film turned out to be,I really did not know what to expect,the one thing that did bother me to begin with was the running time of almost 2 hours,i need not have worried the time flew by.The picture and sound where excellent,and the acting was good.The only gripe i had was the amount of time the religious freak was in the film(you'll see what i mean when you watch it).well worth buying a truly excellent film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average 2 Poor, 20 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First lets deal with wrong turn not a bad film just average,as for wrong turn 2 it seemed a good idea to base a film like this around a reality show,but it was a chance missed,several times i was on the verge of laughter,and im sure that was never the idea of the film,all together a wasted evening,if you must buy these films just buy the first one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Half a CD., 15 Jun. 2009
The release of "a best of George Harrison" has been a long time coming,& to be honest it can only go down as a chance missed.To begin with surely there is enough material to make a really good double cd best of ?.In the end all we got was half a cd.The inclusion of live versions of "While my guitar gently weeps","Something" and "here comes the sun" are strange to say the least,why not use the studio versions ?I know it's only a matter of opinion but how can you have a best of George Harrison without such tracks as "Wah Wah","If Not For You",Beware Of Darkness" &"For You Blue" ? Unfortunately in the end what we get is a very poor effort considering the material available.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total Waste Of Money, 8 Jun. 2009
How the once mighty have fallen,First the new cd "Break Up The Concrete" the only words that spring to mind to describe this are:boring,awful and insipid.What on earth has happened to the band since the excellent "loose scew" they seem to have run out of ideas,and the production is very flat and uninspired.As for the greatest hits WHY ? There are already greatest hits available from the band,and if you are a fan like me stick to the career overview "Pirate Radio",its much better value .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2nd solo disc., 7 Jun. 2009
Being a long time fan of Drive By Truckers ,I was at first very concerned by Jason Isbells departure from the band,could either survive and still produce excellent music.The answer is a resounding yes,The truckers resurfaced with the excellent Brighter Than Creations Dark,while Jason Isbell released the sirens cd.This cd is another step forward,whilst some people felt "sirens" was abit basic and sparse,this great cd brings out isbells great writing and his real ability to creat a great tune.My only problem concerns Amazon i had this on order with them for many weeks,and they still seem unable to get it in stock,Come on Amazon get your act together!!.I have since given up waiting and obtained the cd on download from another source.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Return., 26 May 2009
This review is from: Graffiti Soul (Audio CD)
Without a shadow of a doubt the best thing to come from Simple Minds for a good few years,there are no real bad tracks the whole cd is superb,the only question i have concerns the "bonus disc" of cover versions,the question is WHY ?,But that apart nothing can dampen the effect of a really excellent cd ,Go buy it! Simple Minds are back.

This cd is that rarity there is not a bad track on the whole cd.Also the production is top notch.A lot of this cd contains different/original versions of songs of the 2 cd's of roger chapman that are my favourite;Kiss My Soul & A Stone Unturned,This cd comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made to make you feelgood., 5 May 2009
This review is from: Stupidity (Audio CD)
As other reviewers have said i also tend to steer well clear of live albums,most are filled with over long drum or guitar solo's.This cd however is an exception to the rule,it showcases Dr Feelgood at the height of their power.From the start you can feel the atmosphere build from the first cord of i'm talking about you,and the pace never lets up.It has been said that stupidity was the first live cd to go straight in at no 1 on it's release.If you only buy one live cd &you like your music with a raw edge,get this cd.It's also worth searching out the extended version,which i have this version contains 24 tracks not 15!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror like it used to be., 11 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: See No Evil [DVD] (DVD)
At last a good horror film,just as they should be.I must admit i was'nt expecting too much from this film,but i was really suprised.the film starts slowly but builds up the tension as it goes along.some of the scenes really make you jump &the murders and special effects are excellent.If nothing else this film shows you what to do with an overbearing mother.all round an excellent film.
