3.0 out of 5 stars This is much better book that some in the series, 1 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is much better book that some in the series, but it's just a bit clunky and derivative. That's not to say it isn't enjoyable, switch off brain, read, enjoy. But there's much better authors out there in this genre, granted none churn out books as fast and perhaps that's the problem: too much writing not enough reflection?

3.0 out of 5 stars I love The Heavy, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hurt and The Merciless (Audio CD)
This hurts. I love The Heavy, seen them a few times and have everything they've ever released and this record just isn't as good the others. There's no real stand out track. That's not to say there aren't good moments, but nowhere near as many as there should be.

It's as if the band has lost a little bit of venom along the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars The first set in urban London is quite good fun, the second in Mexico I just could ..., 1 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's times you scratch your head and wonder what the author is trying to do.

The quality of these three books vary wildly. The first set in urban London is quite good fun, the second in Mexico I just could not get on with and the third in San Francisco is confusing as the book begins well then the pace slows down and time jumps by two months and then says events happened three months ago... which kinda destroys the story if you're dealing with a missing person...

I'm struggling here though as I want to like this author.

I will order his very latest book and see if Mr Dawson has improved.

I love reading about alternative lifestyles and whilst swinging isn't for me, this is an intriguing book that opens your eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars They just keep on getting better!, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This could so easily be a one word review: Buy!

Whilst Beautiful Curse was a good record marred by lacklustre production, Black Eyed Sons is a tour de force and Chris Tsangarides and the band should be immensely proud.

Usually with the Quireboys the albums are a distant second to the live performance but every song, riff, lick and raspy vocal makes this the best studio album they've done - perfection.

Tracks such as Lullaby of London Town and What do you want from me? are gonna be live classics.

And then there's the DVD and acoustic CD - amazing value.

If you love music and you have a soul - just buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too polished, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beautiful Curse (Audio CD)
The Quireboys as a live band are unsurpassed. A dingy booze filled venue with Spike bleeding good time rock 'n' roll can't be beat. So why is this record so sterile? Chris Tsangarides' has sucked out the usual Quireboys vibrancy and left us with a taste of what might of been. There's some great songs just itching to burst free from this hermetic production. And the drum sound.... poor is not the word - so lifeless!

So even though I hate the production this gets 4 stars as I love the Quireboys, but the record need to be remastered by someone who will let the songs come alive. Damn Shame!

Just a wonderful book, I'm only 5 chapters in and enjoying every page.

Professional wrestling is just amazing, the athletes deserve so much more respect than they get and reading this book makes you appreciate how hard they work.

Chris Jericho is a scream - the book follows his early life in the sport and has had me laughing out loud on almost every page - if you like sporting autobiographies this is a must read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Fall To Grace (Audio CD)
What a great shame, it seems to me that Paloma has been forced down the hackneyed Adele route by her record company and lost her verve and panache.

There's far too much navel gazing rubbish out there. I had hoped that Paloma would redress the balance again with another uplifting record.

An opportunity missed.
