King Kong Lives ~ John Scott
King Kong Lives ~ John Scott
In my opinion, John Scott is an under-rated film composer who deserves to be much better known. His soundtracks are always melodic and evocative of their subject, and this one is no exception. Although the film may not have been very successful, the music is suitably stirring. The only drawback is that the main theme is somewhat over-used, appearing in almost all of the tracks.

While not quite matching the quality of some of his other soundtracks such as "The Final Countdown" (my favourite) or "Greystoke", this can be recommended to anyone who enjoys great film music.
Alpine SleepSoft + Earplugs (for Sleeping) by Alpine
Having tried disposable foam earplugs, I find this type to be much superior and worth the extra outlay. They are easily fitted easily using the special tool provided to ensure they go in straight, and very comfortable to wear for long periods.

In use they are effective in greatly reducing the amount of sound that reaches the ear. Quieter sounds are blocked, while louder sounds are muffled and therefore easier to ignore.

If you are looking for an antidote to noisy environments, give these a try. Highly recommended.
Bond on Bond: The Ultimate Book on 50 Years of Bon&hellip by Roger Moore
4.0 out of 5 stars Coffee-table Bond, 5 Sep 2014
Many Bond fans will want to own this book, with the assured and witty text by Roger Moore linking the various people, themes and elements of the 007 saga. Supported by numerous interesting photos, he provides a variety of entertaining and informative anecdotes about the world of 007.

The only drawback is that little is explored in depth: however, there are other books that do this, and if treated as belonging on the coffee table (as was no doubt the intention) this one fulfils its purpose well. Recommended for all Bond fans.
