Price: £22.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Angles [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Over a long period this has had as many plays as anything else, I love the melodic genius and structure of this great album.


Tales From The Weeping Willow
Tales From The Weeping Willow
Price: £13.04

4.0 out of 5 stars Music with an edge, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I more than like some of this album, an exploration of 'murder' songs and other twisted tales that are a refreshing change from 'twee' folk singers.


Vivaldi: The Four Seasons, Violon Concertos

Price: £14.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Why another Four Seasons?, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite simply, this is easily the freshest and most vibrant recording I have of this over exposed masterpiece, and full of original but sympathetic interpretation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Posy dreariness, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do quite like a few Nick Cave songs but to my ears he easily slips into tuneless meanderings and this album demonstrates that to the full!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unremarkable, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric (Audio CD)
I have seen Richard Thompson live on many occasions so know first hand how remarkable a performer and songwriter he is; on first acquaintance I found this offering rather dreary but I will persist.

This review is from: Comedown Machine (Audio CD)
Much is written about the Strokes' style, comparisons with their first album etc.etc. but all that matters to me is that the melody and structure of pretty much anything Julian Casablancas writes transcends 'ordinary' music making and this album is no exception.

4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate 'hommage', 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These songs obviously mean a lot to Martin Simpson and are very skillfully rendered, but I can't quite connect with them emotionally; Maybe I'm stuck in his 'Sad or High Kicking ' era.

This review is from: Dear River (Audio CD)
I love Emily Barker, I had the good fortune of catching her live in Denmark Western Australia and her then current album Almanac is a favourite in this household. There are still some good songs here but they are rather 'blanded out' by the production (thanks for nothing Linn Records!) I read that this album came with a live acoustic version but my vinyl copy didn't have this; a shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars More energy required, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set occasionally takes off ands hints of original thought but is mostly rather dreary 'experimental' filler that unnecessarily uses up my life


Penguin Cafe: A Matter Of Life
Penguin Cafe: A Matter Of Life
Price: £13.37

4.0 out of 5 stars New from the old, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A musically valid set that obviously draws inspiration from PCO roots but has its own voice and some beautiful highlights
