Kettling of the Voices

4.0 out of 5 stars This documentary is very well made. The subject matter ..., 30 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This documentary is very well made.

The subject matter is an interesting one. Social injustice. MP's voting to up education fees to £9000 - generally speaking of course, having had free education themselves - and the students protesting, only to be met with various state tactics including the highly controversial kettling. Frankly, having seen it unfold on the news, I wasn't aware that people were contained for 5+ hours (often longer) without access to sanitation, water, food or indeed the ability to leave. One wonders what exactly the police thought would happen when you subject a group of angry individuals to those conditions. Surely, not a polite thank you and goodbye..? Scary, really... on the part of both the MP's who voted knowing their children, grandchildren would suffer and the police, who's children would also suffer, but then took such heavy handed action. Don't get me wrong, i don't doubt /some protesters who got OTT needed to be dealt with... but one wonders, should the police act not prevent them themselves from striking - would things be different? Well who knows.

Interesting watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - Welcome back Mr Marr, 25 Feb. 2013
This review is from: The Messenger (Audio CD)
Received my pre-order this morning and gave this a spin in the car on the way to work. Having previewed the tracks throughout last week I was worried that the album may fall short of my holy expectations of Johnny, but fundamentally it's a great bit of British pop rock and an album which delivers what Johnny does best, exceptional guitar work. I shouldn't have doubted and nor should you !

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 17 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this tent for a european festival. I purchased it due to it's size and weight. Obviously small and light can be quite scary things to go for if the rain decides to come down heavy, but, i'm pleased to say that this little trooper did well. 3 nights with moderate rain, no problem. It's only 1 skin so there are obviously some "sweaty walls" but hidden under the hood at the top of the entrance are air vents and honestly, erecting it was easy as you like. Easily big enough for a couple, it's a great tent for a weekend or two and will no doubt get multiple uses out of it. Or if you want one free, there's one still standing in Meerhout, Belgium!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, but incredible, 17 July 2012
This review is from: Yellow and Green (Audio CD)
The apple has fallen really quite far from the tree if you were to sit and compare Red or Blue with Yellow and Green, but in no-way should that be taken as a bad thing. Baroness are progressively moving forward, carving their own niche and fundamentally writing their own rule book. Aspirational, yes, a bit of a shock for their established fan base? probably. Essentially, do not expect to hear Red, and do not expect to hear Blue, but do expect to hear elements of both, intertwined with ever more complex songwriting and musicianship. Gripping, addictive, exciting and even refreshing, Yellow and Green is a truly accomplished effort and offers as much of a rewarding listen as both the bands previous records, perhaps even more as they explore genres and sounds that are not necessarily previously fitting of their "remit". Most definitely worth purchasing - a defining moment in fantastic young bands career. 110% out of 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome find, 11 May 2012
I only checked this band out becayuse Katie Parsons at Kerrang tweeted about them. I checked them out and was not disappointed, to the extent that i bought the album! Rough vocals, heavy riffs, it's on the cusp of metalcore without being too heavy. If you like to rock out and sing along, you should check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 10 May 2012
This review is from: The Wine Of Silence (Audio CD)
A beautiful record which takes you on a journey far, far away from anything King Crimson. (That is meant factually, no opinion on KC voiced through that statement). A stunning piece of work from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW., 3 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This turned up in the post this morning. All I can say is WOW. It's huge. It's beautiful. It's EXACTLY how The Smiths should be packaged and the audio sounds BRILLIANT. I got the CD box last week anyway so I knew they would sound brilliant, but the 12"s just sound perfect. Seriously well done to Johnny and Rhino for making this. It's truly the star of my (ridiculous) record collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT, 7 Jun. 2011
I bought this album because I love Blue Monday. I did not realise that Joy Division turned into New Order and now I feel silly! But this album is a great introduction and the tracks do sound fantastic. I am now off to buy some more Joy Division I think!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 21 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Bass In Yer Face (Audio CD)
Great album, nice mix of dnb and dubstep.

'This Is Dubstep' seems rather weak compared to this, don't believe their hype, this is the dance album of the summer for me!
