4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but no longer the best, 30 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use a wet electric shaver, and two things in particular are important for me in a shave gel - no lather (it just clogs the motors) and superior glide that doesn't dry out or go sticky. Real products have long met those criteria and they smelt nice too, so I've been brand loyal for about ten years. This latest repackage seems like a backward step - I have to keep rewetting my face, which takes time and means lather is more likely to form. I then have to open the shaver to rinse it out, meaning more lather again. The glide is generally less good - the gel seems thinner. The result is a slower, less comfortable, less close shave than I used to get from the same product. And it doesn't smell as nice too! So still one of the best you can buy, but no longer streets ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The boys get funky, 10 Mar. 2000
The Scream's 1994 album is underrated by fans who were disappointed by its departure from ecstatic grooves towards a more soul and funk-influenced sound. But judged on its own merits it's a brilliant piece of work, retaining the lightness of touch of Screamadelica and with some particularly good ballads. The sheer range of styles might tell against it to some, but that gets top marks from me - the groovy rock of Jailbird, the soul of Cry Myself Blind, Free and others, the bluesy Sad and Blue, and the George Clinton funky collaborations. If anyone knows the title of the hidden 12th track - one of the best ballads - I'd be grateful if they'd post it here!

4.0 out of 5 stars Long-overdue return to the studio worth the wait!, 3 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Premature Adulation (Audio CD)
Otway's first album of new material for many years, Premature Adulation sees him clearly enjoying the inspiration of a new musical collaborator and the joy of his growing family. Although their songwriting and musical styles are different, I always see something of Loudon Wainwright III's combination of humour and poignancy in Otway's lyrics. Lots of good stuff on here - standout tracks possibly Poetry & Jazz, about a young woman's blossoming, Willy (In the Air), which is just plain silly, and Typewriter, a moving song about saying the wrong thing.
