5.0 out of 5 stars I've liked the Rifles for a long time now, 10 Oct. 2016
This review is from: Big Life (MP3 Download)
I've liked the Rifles for a long time now, and this album is a great return to form. i was slightly disappointed with their last two albums (None the Wiser, and Freedom Run). I thought that they lacked the raw energy of No Love Lost and Great Escape, and this album had a similar feel on initial listens, but i'm pleased to say that it has grown on me a hell of a lot. There are some fantastic tracks on both discs, i'm sure Victoria will become a crowd sing-a-long anthem like some of their earlier songs. I'll probably revisit None the Wiser and Freedom Run aswell, as on the evidence of this brilliant new album i probably didn't give them a chance to grow on me.

Overall a great 5th album from The Rifles, they definitely still have it. Can't wait to see them for the 4th time in Camden in a couple of weeks.

Excellent. Concentrates the nose. Great for single malts. If you use a mixer with your drinks (Not with single malt... please!!)) or like a lot of ice then use a tumbler.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Ever Amazon Purchase, 18 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Described as 'womens' i expected it to fit my rather petite wife, it does state that XL would be a UK medium. So with the fact that it comes from China in mind i ordered the XL, it turns up and it would be a snug fit on my 8 year old niece.

The material is also incredibly thin/cheap/poor quality.

STEER WELL CLEAR - You could buy better from a pound shop.


Genocide: My Stolen Rwanda: Surviving the Rwandan Genocide
Genocide: My Stolen Rwanda: Surviving the Rwandan Genocide

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to comprehend what this guy went through, 17 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read several books on the Rwandan genocide, this is the only one i've read by someone that was on the wrong end of this appalling chapter of modern history.

It is probably the most emotionally wrenching book that i've ever read. The authors emotions are raw, he is still angry, there is no one alive that wouldn't be. He can not even go home because of those that still want him dead. I believe that he is married now and living in Switzerland. I hope that he has found happiness.

I find it disconcerting that so many people know so little about the Rwandan genocide. It was less than 20 years ago, and people were being slaughtered faster and more brutally than the Nazis were killing Jews at the height of the Holocaust. Everyone should learn about what happened to hundreds of thousands of people like Reverien Rurangwa. We (The West) have already said 'Never Again', well it happened again, and unfortunately it will continue to happen again until we start standing up for things that really matter... people, not money, resources or politics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Bravo Two Zero, which actually gets better with every read..., 11 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every Partridge fan should own this book, it's that simple.

I've had this book for a while now, and refer back to it every so often when i need my Partridge fix. I have also just found a leather bookmark inside the book from Bibury Trout Farm, which i thought was a lovely Partridge-esque touch.


Ultrasport GPS NavRun 500 Heart Rate Computer
Ultrasport GPS NavRun 500 Heart Rate Computer

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant bit of kit for the price, 17 Jan. 2013
My wife bought me this for Christmas, as i had always wanted a GPS watch, but didn't fancy paying Garmin prices.

In a nutshell; you will not get a product as good as this for the sale price on here. It is easy to use, not finicky at all, robust, looks like a normal watch and the battery life is unbelievably good aswell. The GPS receiver is great, once you have a decent almanac built up it's very quick at getting satelite lock. Most of my runs are under heavy tree cover, on very steep hillsides, with a lot of sky obscured and i've been very surprised at how well it keeps a fairly good lock (I use geodetic GPS as part of my job, and heavy tree cover causes big problems, you will never get perfect GPS tracking under heavy tree cover).

The only thing that i would recommend; would be to use the supplied software to download the data only, then export it to .gpx files and use Strava or something similar for much more detailed analysis of your training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great trainers, no delivery issues., 31 Dec. 2012
These are a lovely colourway, and as far as i am aware have never been released in the UK (In this this colour). They have been selling on ebay for over £100 for a while now, so the price on here is an added bonus.

I live in Germany and missed out on them on their original release a couple of years ago, so was very pleased to find them on here. I had them delivered to the UK, as they didn't recognise a BFPO address. Delivery was very prompt. They are a great pair of Summer trainers, don't wear them in the rain though, or they'll be trashed... as with most suede trainers.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good to have Dodgy back., 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had written Dodgy off to the vaults of history a long time ago, and i thought that they had died a death with the break up, and then the 'new Dodgy' Real Estate album confirmed to me that Dodgy were gone forever. So i was very surprised to have this pop up whilst i was looking through some of their cd singles of old. I was apprehensive at first, and not overly excited if i'm completely honest... But am more than happy to say that i was completely wrong, by a country mile.

This is a fantastic album, in fact i think that it's their best album to date. If you're after a modern day 'Prey For Drinking' or 'Trust In Time' then you won't find it here. What you will find however, is a band that have matured and chilled out a bit, but they can still put passion into songs and can still kick out some great 'So Let Me Go Far' esque riffs.

Personal highlights for me are What Became Of You, Did It Have To Be This Way, Raggedstone Hill, and Back Of You. There's no filler on here though, it's a great album. If you liked Dodgy last time around, then you need to own this album.
