Manafon

4.0 out of 5 stars An earthy and nature inspired work, 29 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manafon (Audio CD)
This work evokes in my mind, a kind of hightened sense of mother nature. It is similar to Died In The Wool, as it is full of images of vast landscapes, and the search for personal identity in that terrain.

This body of work showcases the work of many great artists from singers, songwriters, photographers. There is a mix of styles and genres, so it is very interesting. It is well worth listening to and the artwork is great.

This is one of the most creative and thought provoking works that i believe David Sylvian has made. It takes the listener across landscapes of mountainous wood, cold terrain and back. The sounds generated are beautiful and memorable, as are the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best singer/song writers of his generation, 29 Oct 2013

This review is from: Mark Hollis (Audio CD)
Mark Hollis, former lead singer of one of the best groups of all time, Talk Talk, is in the top league of atmospheric and ethereal song composers and singers. I love this solo work because it demonstrates his knowledge of instrumentation and a perfect synthesis with his style of singing. The world always feels more enriched with musicians like Mark Hollis.

This review is from: Brilliant Trees (Audio CD)
David Sylvian released this brilliant album after the group Japan were no more. A blend of atmospheric and melancholic songs, with thought provoking lyrics, makes this a perfect solo work. A great introduction to this enigmatic and visionary singer and songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular cinematic triumph, 29 Oct 2013

Red Cliff ( The Special Edition ) is an epic cinematic work. This edition comes in two parts, of equal epic film making. The battle scenes are awesome, and the attention to detail is superb. A valuable addition to any martial arts collection.


Akira Kurosawa - The Samurai Collection [DVD]
Akira Kurosawa - The Samurai Collection [DVD]
Dvd ~ Akira Kurosawa
Price: 27.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational collection from a legendary director, 29 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Akira Kurosawa has inspired many film directors, and countless films. The Samurai Collection embodies the style and sophistication of Akira Kurosawa. It is a perfect tribute to this master director, and the films evoke the energy, discipline and ethics of the samurai way of life, told with great storytelling and drama.
I recommend this collection to anyone who loves oriental cinema, with a gritty serious edge. The black and white format and moody landscapes, add further value. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant composition of music and video, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this five stars because not only do you get a compilation of some of the best songs by Talk Talk, you also get the original video's which accompanied their music. Natural History is a must for all fans of Talk Talk, and those who appreciate beautiful, quality music.

4.0 out of 5 stars An alchemy of sounds, 15 Aug 2013

When this record was first released, i was fascinated by the artwork. The music was just as fascinating. I liked the mystical elements and animalistic jungle like atmospheres created. Later on the musical pieces become more urban and recognisable. A good instrumental work


Laughing Stock
Laughing Stock

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect follow-up to Spirit Of Eden, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laughing Stock (Audio CD)
When i first heard Talk Talk's masterpiece, Spirit Of Eden, i knew that the album would define the unique sound of Talk Talk, as great albums do. I loved the atmospheric creativity generated. The sound was earthy, stylish and ethereal. If ever Spirit Of Eden had been visualised as a double album concept, then Laughing Stock would be part of the concept. It is a perfect continuation of the sounds achieved in Spirit Of Eden. The songs are beautifully composed, and expressed by Mark Hollis. The cover artwork is creative, enigmatic and beautiful, as are all the album covers by James Marsh.
