Midge Ure: If I Was...: The Autobiography
Midge Ure: If I Was...: The Autobiography
by Midge Ure
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Midge Ure, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book was before the reunion with Ultravox (2009) so in this is not updated.
For the reading in itself it was interesting knowing the "backstage" of certain situations, above all in the 80s.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this U2?, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an old U2 fan, after Zooropa and also due to U2 lazyness in releasing albums and Pop, I kind of gave up on them.
The only good moment after early 90s was the album "All can't you leave behind". I just bought this for the very low price (4£) and because I kind of liked "Sometimes you can't make it on your own") but basically I gave up on it very soon. Far from my mind to buy the latest album, even for 2£.
The times of "New year's day" or "Where the streets have no name" are so farway. There is a time to retire even for the greatest bands. Hope to be wrong and to be amazed in the future.

Good sound, tiny but looking sturdy, easy to use. Only thing, maybe it is me, but I don't see the duration of the songs.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice reading, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like sci-fi and the theme of a military sci-fi starting with a spatial fleet "lost" in enemy territory was more than interesting to me for buying it (now I've bought the first 5 books of the series). I particularly like the conferences among the captains of the fleet ships and the contrast beetween the main character point of view about war and tactics and the rest of the world around him.

Sometimes some dialogues are boring and a I skip a few lines/pages but in other books I skipped a lot more so it is definetly a good sign for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars it works, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery works but it doesn't last long and sometimes it doesn't recharge. You have to shut down the pc, take out and re-insert the battery to have it recharging again.
Given the price I can't complain much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great voice and nice collection, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best Of Donnie Munro (Audio CD)
This is Donnie Munro and for me it still means the best voice out there, strong and warm. There are some fine songs here (I particularly like "You're the Rose" and "Catch the Wind") that are strenghned by his voice but nothing really shines. Far from the greatness of Runrig albums such as Searchlight and The Cutter, it is still recommended to fans of the Munro's Runrig era if you don't want to buy the single albums of Munro's solo career after leaving Runrig in 1997 but still have a collection of his work on CD. His latest studio album (Heart of America) was released after this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars very long and entertaining, 5 Jan. 2013

If you liked Morrowind and Oblivion, this is better, a complete and satisfying game playing for me, that I put together with the Fallout RPG series as the best RPGs out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice looking and sturdy, 5 Jan. 2013

It looks very nice and looks sturdy and more expensive of what it costed (about 10 pounds). A perfect gift for a girl/young woman I'd say.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best Runrig album, 18 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazing Things (Audio CD)
This is a good Runrig album but not as strong as Searchlight both in quality and in the pace of the songs. Highlight is the wonderful "the greatest flame" (a slow ballad), similar to "Every River" in Searchlight album and nice also is the slow "Dream fields" but also some more movimented songs leave a good trace in my ears, such as "Move a mountain" and "song of the earth"
The title track and other few songs are weaker in my opinion and not worth a prolungated listening.
Somewhat also Donnie Munro voice doesn't sound as much strong or convinced as in other occasions.
Better than a 3, not a full 4 though.
