4.0 out of 5 stars Great bag for 2 season use only, 3 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yeti Passion One Down Sleeping Bag
The workmanship is good and the full length zip is usefull. The bag, of course, packs away to virtually nothing. I tried the bag out in April 2016 in Portugal, with a nightime temperature of 7-10 degrees C. You will NOT be warm enough without wearring a base layer and maybe a fleece at those temperatures. When I did, I was fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty design and poor customer service, 15 Jun. 2015
I purchased a 1.2 litre version of this kettle from Nextday Catering Equipment Supplies via Amazon. The kettle failed, with the power light coming on, but it would not boil. I got a larger model as a replacement and this failed in the same way. On-line forums indicate that this is a frequent problem, so the design must be defective. I currently have not been able to get a refund from Nextday and their customer support is poor and slow. Would not recommend this product or that company.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tight Fit Unlike Other CG Garments, 19 May 2015
I have previously purchased a CG Freestyle Vest in large, which fits beautifully (I have a 36 inch waist and 44 inch chest). So I ordered a large Chateau Parka and found the fit to be very tight and only wearable with a single base layer. This would be no problem, as I live in the UK, but in more hostile territories areas I might want to layer up and this would not be possible. I am pleased with the usual high garment quality, but would comment on the front pockets, which are hard to access, because of the way the flap is designed. I guess all this is my cue to lose a few kg!

This review is from: Black Messiah (Audio CD)
This is a load of self indulgent drivel. All the songs are spartan, with the feel of a warm up jam for a proper recording session, or a stoned session after midnight. There is no melody, just a plodding drone with stabs of percussion, horns etc. This is hugely disappointing after what went before and I have both Voodoo and Brown Sugar.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kettle initially worked well and kept water hot for a long time. Pouring is very slow. After 1 month the unit developed a fault in which the power button would light up, but the kettle refused to boil. Currently in the process of replacement. Unlike sales through Amazon directly, no replacement is sent out by the vendor until the faulty unit has been received.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling remixes, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
None of the remixes here bear any resemblance what-so-ever to the uplifting original version. In most cases the original vocals have been stripped and the music replaced by monotonous and rapid house beats. Why Eternal/Bebe Winans ever gave permission for this self indulgent crap is anyone's guess. Avoid like the plague.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by engine room bass at the start, 28 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Girl On Fire (Audio CD)
This record has been ruined by the heavy, heavy bass, which makes some tracks at the start sound like the reverberating, throbbing of an ocean liner engine room. This is clearly the fault of one or more of the four producers used, which include her husband, Swizz Beats. It completely overshadows her whimsical piano lead vocal style. The album is further spoilt by chasing too many styles from electro soul to hip hop. I had to wait until 'Tears Always Win', half way through, to hear more than just a whiff of piano. From then on it was much better. Alicia - please stick to what you're best at, and ditch attempting to grab a slice of whatever style appears currently fashionable in black music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest from the Last Soul Man, 24 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bobby Womack will be as surprised as anyone to have out lasted many of his fast living peers. Along the way he has crafted some of the most wonderous, beautifull soul music ever produced. This is the first album since his 1999 gospel effort - Back To My Roots. While he has earnt the right to collaborate with whoever he choses, I was more than disappointed with this Damon Albarn produced effort. The arrangements are often sparse, consisting of piano and acoustic guitar, but elsewhere there is over heavy bass and aggravating electronic percussion and other effects. There is a total absence of Bobby's signature guitar chops. The songs are plodding in tempo and lack melody.

I can only wish him well in his battle against illness and admire him for continuing to tour. For me, I would like to have seen one last soul album from the Last Soul Man, or perhaps we can have Poet 1 & 2 remastered with alternative mixes from the sessions. That is what this soul fan would have preferred.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great soul album from Lenny!, 5 Jan. 2005
This review is from: My Way [Us Import] (Audio CD)
I remember Lenny Williams from the great days of Sho Doo Fu Fu Ooh when he sang brilliantly, with vocal arrangements very much in the style of Marvin Gaye. I came across this recently and brought it on a whim. Although his style has now changed I wasn't dissapointed. Lenny now sings with a less derivative soul voice. The music often features gently chugging horms and organ (or strings)over rich, warm and controlled vocals, for a slighly retro feel. However, this never feels like an old soul man bashing out just another album. The songs are all high quality and memorable. 'My Way' is a soul truimph and it deserves a wide audience.
