Alive Just For Love ~ Peter Murphy
Alive Just For Love ~ Peter Murphy
I certainly like the musical content, but having heard the whole in its entirety I won't be buying the CD. Why? Because the crowd squeals and yells all the way through -- not just at the beginning and end of every song, but throughout also and at such volume as to ruin the music. Yes, I know it's live -- I saw Bauhaus in 1982 (at the Hull Tower Ballroom of all places, and it was electric) but we didn't squeak all the way through the set like this crowd do.

So, music company execs -- if you're going to be recording a live set for release, let the crowd know it in advance on threat of ejection if they don't keep quiet, because the crowd noise has cost you my sale, and plenty of… Read more

I have had the same negative experience with this drive (in fact, two of them) as most of the other reviewers here. I bought mine direct from Crucial, so am not one of the 'Verified Amazon Purchase(rs)", but what follows is an honest appraisal of this drive for the benefit of anyone thinking of purchasing it. My only recommendation is that you don't buy the Crucial V4 drive.

On my laptop (Sony Vaio, 2 GHz, 2 GB RAM) this device has slowed my machine to a crawl -- directories take 30 secs to open, property dialogue boxes can take minutes to open, few-Mb Photoshop files are likewise, and in all cases the stuttering and pauses enforced by the drive freeze the laptop and make it… Read more
