We have had this BBQ now for 3 months and have used it about 5-6 times. It cooks well, it has enough space to move things around as they cook or burn. On that score it does what a good BBQ should.

I can't fault it for size and packability in a full car off to the beach or going camping, which is the main reason for choosing this model.

On the down side, the grill racks are already very warped, they get very hot and are not strong enough to withstand the heat. In addition the paint has scorched and burnt on the outside.

This album is in a similar vein to the first VFT album, lots of intricate guitar playing, a bit more 'rock' than the first, but still some great songs and plenty of variety with the occassional more accoustic track such as Paradise which features Toumani Diabate.

If you liked the eponymous VFT ablum then you will not be disappointed by this, recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great set of remixes, 26 Jun 2009
This is a great set of remixes of some of the tracks from VFT first album. I rate this album as better than original album that the tracks are taken from.
Some of the tracks get more than one remix, but they are so different that it does not detract from this collection of tracks. I now only listen to this collection not the original as it is really enjoyable. I really love some of the driving rythms and beats to some of the tracks.

Do go out and buy this album, you really will enjoy it. None of my friends have had a bad word to say about it.
