Canon i-SENSYS Colour Laser Printer Networkable 16&hellip by Canon
1.0 out of 5 stars My life's work, 3 Dec 2012
I agree with the previous reviewer about the difficulty in getting it to print- I have had exactly the same problems (machine says there's no paper when there is, says there's a blockage when there isn't, the need to switch off and on again to get it to (sometimes) work). I don't expect the cheapest consumables in the world - I'd settle for a printer that works, occasionally, without my physical involvement, other than clicking a print icon.

Canon should be truly ashamed of this product imho.

Chris often belittles his rock & roll past and its commerciality. Well, that's what my wife and I loved about him and some of the songs he wrote during that period were truly magnificent. He was also awesome live. Since he became ill he has focussed on the Blues and has been prolific in terms of album releases, which is fine if the quality is good.

When I first heard this album I was hopeful - pretty much half in half - blues/rock & roll - so something for everyone. The only problem is that the rock & roll half is truly unoriginal - all the songs sound very similar to ones he's released in the past.

Thanks for the memories, but they remain just that - memories! I… Read more

It was a long wait from their debut album to this one but well worth it imho.

Ryan Tedder is a fine singer-songwriter and even the initially weaker tracks in the album grow on you with a few plays. Another reviewer has alluded to the U2-like title track which if nothing else proves their versatility as artists. I disagree with his comments re the banality of the 2nd part of that track - it's beautifully written and would suiggest that Mr Tedder and friends would be quite capable of a really good film score.

I'd give it four and a half stars but can't so it's rounded up to five. Enjoy!
