5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Ground breaking. Avoids all formulas, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: If.... [1968] [DVD] (DVD)
Absolutely brilliant. Tremendously ground breaking in the late 60s when released. Won the best picture award at Cannes. It's as far away from the formulaic nonsense of most of today's 'movies' as it's possible to be. A great take on life at school and the way to end restrictions!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good - not quite 5 star, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rattle That Lock (Audio CD)
What would I have liked to know before I bought it? It's good, much of the Gilmour lyrical guitar on show, several good tracks - only one I found great though - 'faces of stone'. Nicely put together. Very pleasing - though lacks a little depth of the old days of PF (but who doesn't). Will also be one I'll happily listen to after 12 months have passed. Overall, worth buying for any PF / DG fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but A4 size is cumbersome, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whereas the contents are indeed very good for beginners I wished I'd been aware that it is A4 size and therefore difficult to read on a train, bus, plane etc. or even in the lap. Sadly, I had to give it away.

1.0 out of 5 stars No warning that there's no software available to download from their website that's compatible with Windows 7, 24 Aug. 2015
There is no warning on compatibility despite its instructions saving it's compatible with windows 7 (and others!) thereby rendering the product useless for my system. You don’t expect that when you buy a new car it will come with no engine so why this!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good looking piece but sound lacked sharpness (and the speaker vibrated), 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality for the price was not as good as should be expected - including that the right hand speaker vibrated to low base sounds which was particularly irritating when playing classical music. Also the sound was relatively quiet on classical music (for which CD's are often recorded quieter than for 'modern' music) and the sound was not sharp enough to pick out distinct instruments. Perhaps I was expecting too much, but I also found the sound lacked sharpness on intricate CDs such as Pink Floyd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to see him back, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Croz (Audio CD)
It's all personal opinion of course, but I was more than pleasantly surprised and have had much of its music lingering in my mind since I bought it some three weeks ago. Here's what I found: it's musically strong with many echoes of DC's heritage - his voice has not lost any of its pitch and tune and there are many good tracks with strong and thoughtful lyrics. There's something of a theme of overcoming depression from start to finish (though it's not at all morbid) and all in all is a good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most beautiful story written in a most beautuful way, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just read it again, many years after my first reading, and it has lost nothing of its very clever intrigue. A wonderful plot, which would be a shame to give away, with its many tragedies told in pleasingly understated prose. GGM broke new ground with this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Despite its excellent title, one that promised much, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite its excellent title, one that promised much, I found it no more than an grossly pretentious mishmash of three subplots. The use of Nietzsche's philosophy of eternal reoccurrence seems forced and does not fit with the main story of the hypersexual nature of the lead character, Tomas, (miss described in my view as misogynist) and barely fits with the 1968 anti soviet uprising in Czechoslovakia during which it is set. Written in 1982, the story does, however, manage to capture something of the repressed Eastern Block attitudes in the 1960s and their growing search for personal satisfaction but the overall impression is that the intention of creating a complex character in Tomas seems too contrived. For some, the book might work on a sexual level but the impression of trying to evoke sexual decadence (beyond sexual freedom) as seen in other works, notably Last Tango in Paris (written a decade earlier), also fails in comparison. It seems fitting, therefore, that the emperor is indeed naked (!).
