5.0 out of 5 stars This is the real madonna!, 31 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Music (Int'l) (Audio CD)
A hangover from ray of light, an amazing album with tuneful beats and some powerhouse songs that demand being listened to more than just the once.
good tracks all impressive enough to secure a 4 or 5 star rating :) unfortunately AMERICAN LIFE album didn't come close to the cultural MUSIC album this album was even better than ray of light with major impressive beats and awesome songs, it has to be one of her best albums, it earns 5th place on my list just under the recent(and great)HARD CANDY, EROTICA, LIKE A PRAYER and TRUE BLUE:)
a must buy i love it!

2.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS CARTRIDGE (HP 342 COLOUR) ONLY 5MLS OF INK!!!!!!!!!, 25 Aug. 2012
When HP sell you a new printer they supply a HP 342 (c9361ee) colour and a HP 336 (c9362ee) black cartridge. Well these cartridges only hold 5mls of ink each which is written in really really small writing on the backs of the cartridge boxes. For higher yield cartridges the black cartridge what you really need is the Hp 337/338 which holds 11mls of ink or the extra high yield Hp 399 which holds 21mls of ink. There is a company that I use (advantage online) which stock a British premium compatible 337/338 which holds 24mls of ink and a 339 British premium compatible that hold a incredible 34mls of ink. Hp make there money out of selling you a very good printer but then sell you cartridges that have hardly any ink in them (336 & 342). Don't fall into the HP ink con trap!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth adding to your video library, it's fabulous!, 24 Aug. 2012
The actors are all credible,very appealing and the story is plausible.
It's wonderful to see all the familar faces together in a classy film.
Terrence Howerd is rather good on the guitar, didn't know he could play, but he does it very convincingly, but then I am a little biased as I have a soft spot for his cute little bod. I've seen the other actors in other movies and will be looking out for them in movies as I was impressed with all of them. Maurice Chesthunt, is also a nice sight for sore eyes, well fit. . .
You find yourself becoming invovled in the characters and rooting for them even when they've been caught out.
It's a great value, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly absorbing!, 24 Aug. 2012
This review is from: W.E. [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Despite the swarm of bad reviews, largely due to the 'A film by Madonna' attachment, 'W.E.' is a pleasant surprise. It's not in the same league as 'The King's Speech', even though it shares some DNA, but it's also no 'Body of Evidence' either. Judge it on its own merits and watch it with no preconceived opinion in mind and you mind actually enjoy it. Genuinely underrated. I enjoyed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very much here to excite even the hardest fan, 23 Aug. 2012
On first looking at this set it looks rather nice, then when you look a bit closer you really wonder who this set is aimed at.For starters three of Madonna's number one's are missing, Into the groove, Who's that girl and Vouge. If it is aimed at the fan then its not very complete and lacks a lot, I'm breathless which was a complete Madonna album for Dick Tracy film is missing, which included Vouge a massive hit and Hanky Panky. I can understand perhaps the Who's that girl sound track as Madonna only supplied Material for one side as it was of the LP but then a further number one single is missing.I won't even start with Evita ! The first three albums are the dreaded re-mastered versions, where much of the sound quality was lost as they turned up the volume, too much. Like a Virgin is missing into the groove, and before you say it was not on the original, well it was added six months later, like many artist do(Marron 5 jumps to mind by adding moves like Jagger to the new album). So its missing but they have added some pointless re-mixes (now they were not on the original were they). There is no mistaking True blue and Like a prayer are fantastic album, but I am sure every fan, infact by the sales nearly everyone has them. The thing is with collections like this, they could be so great, but then for some reason, someone in the record company just does not think when putting things like this together and goes for the cheap option. I would have to say I am not sure this is even the complete studio albums, Why well from memory "You can dance" was considered a studio album, at the time we were led to believe it was, the first full price remix album. I'm breathless should have been included, and other reviews said a bonus disc collecting all the singles missing tracks would have been great then this would have been a collection that the fans and Madonna would have been proud of. I feel it is sad that this is just a cash in and I am pretty convinced Madonna has nothing to do with it. This is still great music but we all have it and there is nothing in this collection special or rare to please or excite any fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly Immaculate collection!, 23 Aug. 2012
Covering the period between her 1983 major debut single Holiday and 1990's Vogue, The Immaculate Collection is Madonna's first and best greatest hits album. It doesn't include all of her singles from this period, missing the number one hits True Blue and Who's That Girl as well as Angel, Dress You Up, Gambler, Causing A Commotion, The Look Of Love, Dear Jessie and Hanky Panky it does include all of her most well known tracks as well as two new tracks the sexual Justify My Love and Rescue Me.....
All of the hits here appear in a slightly remixed form although none of them detract from the songs themselves and the remix version of Like A Prayer is absolutely fantastic.
The album starts off with Holiday and runs in chronological order through her 80s hit and while a lot of the early ones could be described as little more than throw-away pop songs tracks like Live To Tell, Like A Prayer and Vogue are classics which would be hits regardless of what decade they were released in.
If you only own one Madonna album from the 80's make it this one. You get all of the hits and none of the filler of her 80's albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 21 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Our Version of Events (Audio CD)
Brilliant artist definitely one of the best of 2012 if not the best. A definite contender for best new comer and ill be shocked if this album doesn't get number one. Brilliant voice, brilliant layout of songs and good blend between real lyrics while not making it depressing which is hard to do. Get this you will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album!, 21 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Fall To Grace (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the strength of the single Picking up the Pieces and Paloma's striking voice. I can only say that I am blown away by this album, the variety of styles, strength of vocals and great production are fast making it my favourite CD of the year and maybe in my all time top ten too.

The songs are lyrically interesting and performed to perfection, the single is a great introduction and then every track just draws you in.

I am now thinking of buying Paloma's other CD as this one is just so damn good. You will not regret making this purchase

Great fun, saw the BBC version first and was curious about the original version, I can say I wasn't disappointed. A laugh a minute series, tears were rolling down my face as I couldn't stop laughing. Long may it reign as one of those rare comedies that will still be funny years from now.
