Watertown ~ Frank Sinatra

Do not buy this Watertown CD. Frank Sinatra is well past his best and frequently fails to hit or sustain a note. Most disappointing.
This original CD was made at the end of his recording career, so the poor quality of his singing should not have come as such a surprise..
Much more astounding was the really poor quality of this release of digital re-mastering. The recording engineer has made major errors. The sound is very distorted throughout. His master control panel is covered in many switches and sliding controls.
Clearly he had set a number of these to their wrong and inappropriate positions, and then left them there. He should be shot.

I like The Times Fiendish Su Doku series of books. They are my favourite series of Su Doku books. The puzzles are generally correctly categorized and uniformly difficult. Within the puzzle, the individual cell size is large enough to enter the range of possible candidates. The book construction is adequate and it doesn't readily fall to pieces.

However, the Book 5 that has just been released is a great disappointment. It is too easy. It is certainly not really a Fiendish level set of puzzles.

The Super Fiendish level puzzles are particularly misnamed. Out of the full set of 20 puzzles, only one needed any of the more advanced techniques! This is not a proper level of… Read more
