5.0 out of 5 stars A one stop shop, 14 Nov. 2002
This has to be the best (X)HTML course/reference source I have ever come across - superbly written in non-patronising layman's terms, without omitting any detail whatsoever, and including well presented, comprehensive appendices.
I would recommend this book to Web authors, tutors...or anyone with an interest in the workings of the Web; it fulfils the purposes of an excellent instruction manual, refresher/reference guide and good bed time read!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the wittiest albums of the decade., 2 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Camera Loves Me [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Merchant banker Jessica Griffin teamed up with The Monochrome Set to write & record this masterpiece. This has to be the poshest pop you'll ever hear - very clever, very witty...but NEVER a joke; plus the music is darn' catchy.
"I saw him in the patisserie, by the eclairs", indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy stuff...& those chords!, 23 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Suburban Light (Audio CD)
I love this album! Imagine Galaxie 500 had they existed 30 years ago. If you've heard Manfred Mann's 'Up The Junction', think along those lines & add The Kinks' Waterloo Sunset...& that sets the mood of the whole album. 'Rain' brings Syd Barrett to mind, & 'Saturday'haunts with its beautifully sad melody. The production is utterly lush throughout...you'll forget the somwhat lo-fi quality within seconds. I want more of this!

4.0 out of 5 stars A rockier direction..., 11 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Good Morning Starshine (Audio CD)
When I put this CD on, my first impression was "Well, I suppose it WAS 1969...". The tell-tale dry production dates this album, setting it apart from what largely defined their sound. However, what you do get is great songwriting, excellent pastiche - Small Faces, and a hilarious Mama Cass take-off (even the 'California Day' title gives it away), and upon reaching the title track, the group has regressed to their classic vocal soft-pop style. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very odd...but verier catchy!, 1 May 2001
This review is from: Death By Chocolate (Audio CD)
Were a St Trinians-style Czech arthouse movie ever made, this album would provide the perfect soundtrack. Musically, Death By Chocolate ranges from late '60s psychedelia ('My Friend Jack') and campfire singalong ('If You Want To Sing Out'), to the lush instrumental arrangement of Pete & Dud's 'LS Bumblebee...and the downright weird, but utterly infectious style of 'A,B & C' and 'The Salvador Dali Murder Mystery'. The whole affair is interspersed with little beat-poems, each one based on a different colour. I think it can be safely said that you'll here nothing else like this all year!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Introduction, 1 May 2001
This review is from: Les Chansons D'amour (Audio CD)
Arguably, this album comprises 22 of Francoise's most beautiful 1960s recordings, including a couple of English/Italian translations, just for good measure. From the pastoral 'Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour', through the playful 'Ce Petit Coeur' to the heart-wrenching 'Voila', this compilation should appeal to any fan of bitter-sweet (though never sickly) love songs. You don't even need to understand French - her voice says it all!
