4.0 out of 5 stars Superb case that looks and feels quality., 13 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good quality product. The iPhone fits snugly into the soft touch plastic retainer. The leather and stitching are top quality. I'm a little fussy when it comes to leather as these days there is PU leather, good leather and then there is excellent leather. This product is the latter. It's lovely to the touch and feels tough and substantial. Because of this it does effectively double the thickness of the phone. Like all good leather, when new, it can be a bit rigid and needs time to become supple. This means that the stand feature for FaceTime or watching video doesn't stay put. It try's to return to its 'normal' flat position. This is the kind of thing that will become better the more it's used. The magnet closure is sufficient to hold the cover closed or when folded all the way back keeps it fully open. I haven't and don't intend to use the card holders so cannot comment on if cards affect the magnet closure. The camera and flash are both unobscured and work fine in the case. All buttons and ports are accessible when the case is closed.

This is a really good top quality case that does a great job of protecting my phone, looking good and feeling good. The only reason I've dropped a star is because of the FaceTime stand feature. Though I understand the properties of leather and given time it will work fine, I feel that design could overcome this issue so that the feature works straight out of the box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the music not the extras, 10 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Ommadawn (Audio CD)
On listening to the 2010 stereo mix my first impressions were that my high expectations had been met. I try to keep an open mind on revisiting such a classic as it can be hard to accept a new take on it. The clean, crispness of the sound is instantly evident and the mix is far more dynamic than the original. You certainly hear sounds that were lost before as the levels of each instrument have changed. Where you may anticipate a crescendo or a wind instrument to take the lead as in the original sometimes it is quite different. I noticed the electric guitar coming through a lot more and some of the recorders/flutes/pipes a lot quieter. After a few listens I think that it has been done very well; cleaning up the original with care. There are only 3 criticisms I have, 1 is the change at 11:57, rather odd, sounds like a slip of the mixing slider, 2 the finale of part 1 at 16:55 hasn't got the punch I thought it might have and 3, the finale melody on gloc is almost lost now. That said I will continue to enjoy listening to it.

The 5.1 mix for me was exceptional and very enjoyable. It has been done subtly; unlike the 2003 tubular bells merry go round. The rear speakers are used very well with vocal chords and strings with the main instruments coming from the front. Occasionally you may get duplicate sound in the rear speakers to complement the front giving the listener more emersion. Funnily enough criticism 1 above isn't evident at all in this mix; however point 2 and 3 still stands.

Overall this is a must have for any Oldfield fan, great care has been taken on this and though there are 3 points I have raised they don't detract too much from the experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful piece in it's own right., 18 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Music Of The Spheres (Audio CD)
I can't believe some of the drivell written in other reviews here. When will people stop comparing everything Mike does to what he did 30 years ago, it must be like a millstone around his neck. Admittidly there are hints of several of his previous albums here (which for me add to the goose bump factor) but this is a wonderful piece of music in it's own right. Not many artists come up with new creations over the time span Mike has and rather than critisising him for it he should be applauded. He has always risen to critics by proving what a talented guy he is. The last few albums have been critisised for being constructed by sequencers and computers so in true Oldfield fasion he quashes this by this orchestral piece. I suggest it's listened to without prejudice or comparison and appreciated it for the fantastic and emotional piece of music that it is.
