I like Amazon a lot. I try to write fair reviews, though maybe I don't have the writing flair. What do you reckon?

5.0 out of 5 stars More Lead For His Pencil, 14 April 2014
Based on the video I saw of Iron Sky, that Adele raved about so much, I was really anticipating this new album. Gone are the relentlessly chirpy tunes of the previous album, as this is a bluesy, soul filled epic with some funky beats and heart-rending tunes.

The album cover prepares you for a grown up, heartfelt journey, and it delivers on every level. The vocals are so powerful, especially on Iron Sky, that you forget for a second that this is the same person who gave us Pencil Full Of Lead. I was blown away by the vocal performance, the excellent arrangements, and the ease with which he flicks through different styles.

Terrific album, absolutely love it!

Since then it has worked without issue, so I'm able to report the following:

-GPS is quick to synchronise, and gives similar results compared to Strava on my iPhone. The maps that come with the standard package are quite basic, which is a let down considering the amount you pay for… Read more
Breville Opula 4-Slice Stainless Steel Toaster, Ca&hellip by Breville
Got this at Christmas, and have to say it's a really high quality toaster. Being able to poke the toast back up to see if it's done is a great feature, even if it's still a lot of guesswork on whether it toasts evenly. It's a nicely styled machine though, although it's larger than I had expected it to be, so check the dimensions of your kitchen before plumping for this.
