5.0 out of 5 stars Seductive, 80s inspired, electro synth, 5 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Never Been Cool (MP3 Download)
Let's not get into the debate about whether James has ever been cool or not (he most probably was, he most probably is), but focus on his seductive, 80s inspired electro synth album that is full of pop melodies, relationship drama and the fact that at heart, he just seems an old romantic. Nowhere is all of this more evident than on the track that kicks off the album, Bad Guy. Set to a disco beat and luscious soaring synths, James laments how he'll never be the bad guy, but is always the sad one. It's a universal theme that draws you in and actually makes you feel like you are part of a story being told. Glitterdust is James' big pop moment where he just wants to perform, to dance, to feel the music - the theme of such wanton abandon is continued in Bodies, where he examines how lust and love aren't always intertwined and it's the primal urge for passionate contact that drives people together (and apart). And I love how the theme of freedom, relationships and nights out continues throughout the whole album. It's not a concept album, but it's well thought out, tightly knitted and executed perfectly. Take The One Before Me - it's a darker synth track examining how the shadow of an ex-partner can blight a relationship, fuel it with uncertainty, trepidation and jealousy. It's why he needs the Club With No Name - still my favourite James Leon song; it's a soaring, gleeful affair with subtle persuasive dance grooves and enticing electro beats. James implores you to take him anywhere where he can just be for a while and you feel compelled to go along for the journey. It's what makes the album a winner - a love letter to pop set through the minefield that is modern day society. James' vocals draw you in and the catchy choruses make you stay. essential if you like Hurts, Bright Light, etc...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, easy to follow, delicious recipes, 14 April 2010
I purchased this product after following Donal's website for some months for delicious recipes. Basically the book does exactly what it says on the cover - it provides you with food that is bound to brighten your day with easy to follow instructions that provide the most yummy results even for kitchen novices like me. There are really useful tips within the book such as what essentials should be in every kitchen cupboard, and it is separated into sections so you can choose a recipe that matches whatever meal you are cooking.

My tip? Go straight to the desert section. They are really all quite tasty - and each recipe comes with a gorgeous photograph of the finished product which gives you something to aim for. The foreward and introduction are written in such a chatty style by Donal that it really draws you into the cooking experience and makes it fun and entertaining. Definitely worth following Donal's cooking blog as well for recipes themed to certain holidays or just additional tips.
