5.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure, 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Commander (Kindle Edition)
This is what I would call a true 'ripping yarn'. Not heavy on the science, i.e. stuff just works in the way you would imagine, but with a tongue-in-cheek reference to all the traditional tech that is used in the popular media. This makes way for a compelling and fun read. This is clever, fast paced writing, that needs the reader to not question things too deeply but just hold on tight for the ride.
Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Exciting and Smart, 4 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The continuation of a fantastic science-fiction space opera that continues to get better with every release. Jennsen really ups her game and ramps up the tension in what has become my favourite new scifi series. Multiple universes, omnipotent aliens, fear of artificial intelligence, embattled politicians and military and organised crime.
If you haven't yet discovered the Aurora Rising series, then you are in for a hell of a ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and smart too., 21 Mar. 2016

I've just finished reading the Atlantis Ship and lost a day too it..but in the best kind of way. A rip-roaring smart space tale from a very imaginative writer. I really enjoyed the characters and their relationships and there were some nice twists that kept me on my toes.
There are a large amount of badly written, badly edited, science-fiction space operas on Amazon at the moment. On many, I cannot get past the first page because the grammar is just so poor. However this is not the case with Hadfield.
An intelligent, creative writer, weaving a great story that kept me hooked until the end... I'm sold.
I've just started on the second book of the trilogy... and I already cannot wait to get home from work to read it.

This review is from: In The Magic Hour (Audio CD)
Aoife O'Donovan has a voice that spins gold. Such a gentle clarity that expresses so much.
I can just switch off the world and pull her music round me like a blanket and lose myself to it.
This is a wonderful album and a step up from 'Fossils' her debut solo cut.
An enchanting and essential listening experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and works fairly well with USB MIDI controllers., 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much better quality than I though it would be with a nice solid cast metal base which means it won't tip even when stuffed with leads. I'm using it with a recording set-up half of my midi controllers work fine through the USB 3 ports.. which is a first in my experience. The video quality is excellent and is fast enough for real-time monitoring of musical frequencies. There is obviously a CPU hit which means you have to be careful how many plugins you can view... I'm running a Fujitsu Lifebook screen + 1080p HD monitor and then into another 1680x1240 monitor using the Anker's DV output and the picture is really crisp. I'm very happy with the device.. could do with a power switch though.

What works through the USB - Mice, Memory sticks, M-Audio 49 Midi Keyboard, Presonus Fader Port.
What doesn't: Presonus USB Audio box, Korg padKontrol.

A good piece of kit.

This review is from: 1 [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
It's pretty good... but not a bargain. The colour restored footage is great and its there are some nice out-takes like the famous fish & chip moment of 'I Feel Fine'. The DVD titles look cheaply done and there are some of the included videos, that were made long after they has disbanded, are a bit naff.

4.0 out of 5 stars You would have to pay a wad load more money to get anything better., 13 Nov. 2015

It's a bit rough around the edges and I had to use my tap and die kit to clean up the threads on the screw-in legs as they would not screw into the holes on the stand. However for the money and the fact that it includes free delivery... and I got it the next day, it's a real bargain.
You would have to pay a wad load more money to get anything better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly, Truly Exceptional, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Holy mother of everything that is blues rock, this album truly delivers on every front. Jared James Nichols is that rarest of gems, an authentic musician and singer who lives what he plays, a force of nature no less.
I've been listening to so many artists and bands trying to find the sort of blues-rock that Nichols delivers. Shamefully I only found out about him due to an Amazon recommendation..but thank goodness I did.
This debut album is jaw dropping, exciting and an absolute master-class on how to deliver wall-punching blues.
It pours through his veins and into his soul and the end result is a searing landscape of thick soaring guitar chops and superb vocals.. yes this lad can really, really sing. It can only help his cause that the other members of his band, Erik Sandin on bass and Dennis Holm on drums seem to have a telepathic link to each other that tightly push and syncopate the songs where needed.

My absolute album of the year and utterly essential listening.

The boy done REAL good!
