1.0 out of 5 stars NOT HEADSET COMPATIBLE, 27 Jan 2014
The one star review is no reflection of the product - to be honest I've no idea whether it's any good or not. I didn't get that far. As this phone has no jack socket for a headset, it's no use to me. So quite why Amazon thought it was okay to sell it together with a Panasonic headset is anyone's guess. This mis-selling has left me phoneless for another few days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 28 Mar 2008
Loads of people maintain that Grand Prix is better, and as far as a collection of songs by a fine British band at their peak goes, you can see why - "Sparky's Dream" and "Niel Jung" are among the best songs they ever did...For that matter, "Ain't That Enough" and "I Don't Want Control of You" are another couple of blinders from "Songs From Northern Britain"...But the thing about "Banwagonesque" is its cohesiveness - it sounds like a Proper Album; its twelve songs hold together as a unit, and - dare I say it - the record takes you on a journey, in the way that all the best albums do.

Still sounding as fresh as it did on its release more than ten years ago, this album's summeriness, unashamedly West-coast vibe and killer melodies never fail to raise the spirits. Velvet Crush's deceptively nonchalant way with a tune means that there's not a single dud on here. Stand out tracks for me include Faster Days (co-written with Stephen Duffy), Keep On Lingerin', Time Wraps Around You, Star Trip and a heartfelt cover of Gene Clark's Why Not Your Baby? (complete with delightful pedal steel). If you like your American guitar-based pop with plenty of tunes and a decent helping of country on the side, buy this record - you won't be disappointed.
