5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year far??, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unguarded (Audio CD)
I'm sure this is what half the female "artists" of her generation think they sound like in their own heads, in Ellie Gouldings especially! A fantastic album of mature well judged pop, Rae is one of those greats that can wear her influences, fleetwood, tori, London grammar with out giving over any compromise to her own integrity. She maintains an original voice.

The first half sounds a little produced with the singles from the album standing to the fore, second half is a much more honest heartfelt offering, and I sincerely hope this is the shape of things to come.

All in all a fine and strong first album showing great promise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its good, a grower, 25 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Sparks (Audio CD)
Its good, a grower, like all the best albums. The album had a concept, but for my money is a clasic concept album in the very best brit eccentric tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A precious review, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok the bad first as I've definitely rated this the 5stars it deserves.

The special part of the set clearly didn't extend to the's card.... It looks like an Alevel product design demo... It will last the next 6months before coming apart!

If you put "special" on the cover, special is what it should feel, limited edition or maybe in this case even "precious" edition would have been a better choice in the circumstances

The good however is that any other film franchise (star wars we're looking at you) this would be an acceptable shortcoming. The shear quality of the content however serves to highlight the lack of thought in the packaging and of a hard copy the presentation of inlay is I grant excellent and informative at all levels (technical and artistic) but if £15 is what the record company/distributor wants in return for a special edition it must be "precious to me" and for keeps, in hand it's a bit of a let down.

The score itself.... Oh my... Fantastical is the only word, my girlfriend isn't that bothered with scores actually picked out the track by ear, when Gollum makes his appearance and with me talking naught but LOTR for the last month asked if "this was the dwarf theme"

The point being not since the imperial march has orchestral thematic themes for characters been so instantly accessible in a film and yet still appear in so many motifs, and with the Zimmer-esk mass producing (as craft) identi-scores for almost any film Howard Shore's work stands out as the hand crafted dresser against a sea of ikea furniture.

Art should never repeat its self and a craft should seek uniformity and never deviate from design this is an art.

Even though we haven't even seen the film yet and like reading the book before a trip to the cinema, the great test of a score is if it can stand on its own and add to the work, like playing a rock song on an acoustic, this is a piece of work something, to stand back and admire.

So with out screen a vivid and fully formed adventure in middle earth unfolds between the speakers.
