Two Sides: The Very Best Of Mike Oldfield
Two Sides: The Very Best Of Mike Oldfield
Price: £6.50

2.0 out of 5 stars RELEASED TO CASH IN ON MIKE'S OLYMPIC APPEARANCE (2012), 1 May 2016
I love about 60% of Mike's output. But with so much material to choose from this collection leaves me cold. This could have been a 3cd set for the original selling price. That would have allowed a much greater selection. Mike personally chose these tracks and excerts but that fact merely encouraged me to buy this upon release. It is seldom played although Mike is the most played artist in my (I consider) vast music collection. Admittedly, I love everything up to and including Crises. After that things for me got sporadic. Many fine moments but spread to thinly over too many albums. And disc 2 does not feature many of them. The Songs Of Distant Earth is my favourite later album.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOFT ROCK LAID BARE. Shades of jazz and blues with a British twist., 1 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dire Straits (Audio CD)
A superb collection of quiet pop/ soft rock songs. Much in the same way as Communique (their second album) This debut features Sultans Of Swing, which is a standout track but is only just better than the others. Mark Knopfler around this time (1978) was working with Bob Dylan (Slow Train Coming, then later Infidels) and the influences from one to the other can be heard in the the 4 albums mentioned above.
For me, Dire Straits 5 star LP is Love Over Gold. Which is more rock. I reviewed that likening to Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. I mention that to put Communique and Dire Straits in context.


The Platinum Collection [2011 Remaster]
The Platinum Collection [2011 Remaster]
Price: £18.38

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ALMOST PERFECT COLLECTION., 1 May 2016
Firstly the negatives. I don't care for remixes and although I enjoy watching the Freddie Mercury tribute concert I tend to skip the audio versions on disc 3. That's the negatives out of the way.

Queen's Greatest Hits is one of the biggest selling titles of all time. A perfect running order, a perfect track listing. It's basically the singles from 1973 to 1981.

Queen's Greatest Hits 2 is a collection of the band's later singles from where GH1 left off to the last album, Innuendo, before the passing of Freddie. An outstanding collection.

GH3 ties up some lose ends but really only for fans. It is however, for the casual listener still entertaining. Just to note, the names with "Queen" refers to Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor.

Finally, this is a singles compilation. OMG, if this is your introduction to Queen wait until you hear most of the album tracks! My favourite Queen LP is A Day At The Races (1976), for me just slightly better than A Night At The Opera.

2.0 out of 5 stars THESE CHARACTERS DON'T DO MUCH., 1 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My nephew likes these characters but they don't do a great deal. He is almost 3 and loves things with wheels. Courtesy of Vine some of the ZOOTROPOLIS sets have cars which he can incorporate in his play with these figures.

4.0 out of 5 stars MY NEPHEW LIKES THE ZOOTROPOLIS CHARACTERS, AND THIS SET HAS WHEELS., 1 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Courtesy of Vine my nephew now has several sets of characters. The sets with vehicles are a favourite. At least they can do something more than just sit or stand. My nephew is almost 3 and has not seen the movie yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars ALTHOUGH MY NEPHEW LIKES THESE THEY DON'T DO MUCH., 1 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The mayor has movable arms and legs and the lemming does not. My nephew is almost 3 and now courtesy of Vine has as collection of 4 sets. He has not seen the movie yet. What is nice is that both male and female character sets are available to interest boys and girls. However, they really don't do very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT STAPLER. Red as pictured., 30 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Red, small, compact and sturdy. Another great product from Rapesco. This is a really well built unit that can fasten 20 pages in one press. Obviously, for the price it would be best to order with other stuff to break the £20 border so you get free p&p.

3.0 out of 5 stars A NICE CONDITIONER but £10* really, 30 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
*£9.99 at the time of writing this review.
A Vine review MUST be written within 30 days. For this product 30 days will not give an accurate description of whether the conditioner has nutritional values worthy of the price tag. So for now 3 stars. However, it leaves hair feeling lovely and with a pleasant scent.

5.0 out of 5 stars AA WELCOMED GIFT FOR MY NEPHEW., 29 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Come night my nephew is put in one of these. Huggies have been around for years. They are tried and tested and loved by toddlers and their parents. Kids love them because they are comfortable. And parents love them as they do an excellent job of absorbing which helps against sores and dirty sheets.

5.0 out of 5 stars WATCH THE AMAZON VIDEO TO SEE WHAT THIS TOY CAN OFFER, 28 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
He is 13.5 inches, cuddly and press Nick's tummy and he comes out with smooth chat up lines used on the female cop character. Nothing crude just smooth.
5 stars because the child will either love or hate this. And who cannot like a cute fox.
