5.0 out of 5 stars Great great great, 17 April 2010
This review is from: Essential Collection (Audio CD)
At 4 quid, so about 20p a song, this represents this best value for money on amazon. Every one a cracker.. It's a no brainer. Pop it in in the car and arrive smiling!

Price: £6.72

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Nice Surprise!, 9 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Lovebox (Audio CD)
I love this album. A different song hits me each time. And this is an album of songs, rather than background music. Soulful, textured and groovy songs. I don't want to bet on it, but I have a feeling this CD will only improve with time. I think GA have made a real classic here.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Does Music Mean To You?, 7 Jan. 2004
This review is from: 31 Songs (Paperback)
What a great book. I cant explain how much it means to read honest, insightful and funny thoughts about music. But if music is your bread & butter (& jam) then you'll read it and just get it.
The chapters are song titles, but Hornby’s book is less like 31 song reviews, and more like a collection of essays about what music means and has meant to him, and how he has evolved musically. This is a passionate man who makes a lot of sense. As well as exploring a big bag of beautiful, personal, classic tunes that have shaped his musical development & generally made life more enjoyable, he talks about the value of a good pop song, puts musical intellectuals in their place, and admits to all kinds of uncool favourites. Cant really say more except, read it. If you're a happy music addict, you look back fondly at all the stuff you used to like, the stuff you didn’t used to like but now do, and now look forward to all the great stuff you’ve yet to hear and love - this book is for you. Thank you NH.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hello?!!!!!!!!!!???????, 29 Mar. 2001
I realised on page 66 that I was reading a poorly disguised re-write of Alexander Dumas 'Count of Monte Cristo'. Now I cannot read on, without kipping ahead and sighing in disappointment when I recognise each stolen detail. Save yourself the bother, and go buy the original (6 pounds, I just checked). If this book inspires a few people to go back and read Dumas' classic, then maybe it will have been worthwhile. I really like Stephen Fry, and listed him amongst the few funny writers I could think of...But he'll have to do better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember when the Simpsons made you spit laughing?, 13 Jan. 2001
I know the Simpsons are on telly all the time, but they keep repeating the same ones, never showing the classics.
So remind yourself how funny it used to be.
