Second Chance (Chance Series Book 1)
Second Chance (Chance Series Book 1)
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Chance, 24 July 2015
This book was really enjoyable and an exiting read. At first i found it hard to follow the story/plot line but i got it eventually. Natasha Preston, can sometimes miss out words or mispell words when she is writing, which makes the book harder to follow. i have read Silence and the other to books in that series and i really enjoyed them. i would recommend that you read all books by Natasha Preston because she is a very good writer.
Hoprfully, Natasha preston writes some more sequals to this book about what happened to Logan, Jace and Chloe after the wedding... did Chloe ever get pregnant?... what happened with Jace and Daphnee?

4.0 out of 5 stars always use lower case fonts, 7 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Flumina (Audio CD)
Following the acclaimed cendre (always lower case), this is the new collaboration between Christian Fennesz and Ryuichi Sakamoto. As neither need any sort of introduction, I will cut to the chase. Eschewing any song titles, each track simply states a number, starting at 0318 and finishing at 0429. It is a studied piece of work that wears it's art house credentials proudly on it's sleeve. But it is the music that we are here to talk about. There is no radical departure from cendre and there are echoes of Fennesz's wonderful remix for Sakamoto's Bricolages album. Fennesz sits slighlty back in the mix and creates delicate textures which underpin Sakamoto's expressive piano motifs. There are the obvious Eno / Harold Budd comparisons, which, although valid, are perhaps too obvious. A far closer call would be the remix that Akira Rabelaise did for Harold Budd's "As Long As I Hold My Breath", from the Avalon Sutra album. However, flumina more that stands up for itself. It is so subtle and full of emotion. Fennesz matching Sakamoto's bold playing with his own arsenal of clicks, glitches, washes and static bursts. It is difficult not to lapse into the ambient cliches when describing this music as previous reviewers of Fennesz have found. However, it is emotion that drives this album, as it does both of their solo works and it is the quality and emotion that makes this album so powerful.

3.0 out of 5 stars 4th World, 1 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Replica (Audio CD)
A departure from previous offerings, the new release from Lapotin blends 4th World Hassell/Eno overtones with a more familiar warm glow of the dark side of 80's vocal locks and synth washes. A much more edgier affair than Rifts or Returnal, Replica rewards with repeated plays, as it's nagging melodies and textures worm their way into your subconcious and you find yourself surfacing from a troubled sleep to find Roy Batty staring you in the face telling you he has done questionable things. In other words you should have taken that trip to an off world colony when you had the chance. Check out Steve Hauschildt for more of the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic, 26 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Seven Stars (Audio CD)
First release since 2008's Black Sea. Sublime and highly textured. Four short pieces that say more than many can say in a whole album. Liminal is an absolute joy. So emotional and up lifting. Dunno how he does it, but he combines technology with real emotion. A blues man for the 21st century? Shift moves the whole thing into another dimension.Underpinned by ON's Stephen Hess on drums, this is a real taster for the next album. Essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punkt!, 21 July 2011
Jan Bang has come to the fore recently due to his work with David Sylvian, as part of the Punkt collective and various remix duties. One would expect this album to contain many elements of his previous work, but it has a definate strength of it's own and holds up really well as a focused and concise album. Very ambient, with a real sense of menace. It is not vapid and taps into the world of soundscape, offering a very real and vital collage of disperate sound that both colours and forces you to react in a very physical way. In other words, it's not an album to do the washing up to. A track in a similar vein is Indian Long, by Fripp and Eno, from the Cotswold Gnomes album. Ambient, it has a low frequency sigh that runs throughout the track and is at once both life affirming and robotically cold and that's no easy achievement.Well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7", 20 July 2011
This review is from: Transistion [7" VINYL] (Vinyl)
This is a 7" single, so seven is the magic number..........organic, swirling, warm, enveloping, textured, pure, green.
Shame you cannot see the cover. It is a lot of the above.

3.0 out of 5 stars Look at those cavemen go!, 20 July 2011
I bought this in 1977, at the height of Punk! Maybe I liked the cover. I never got round to playing it for a few years, but when I did I found that it grew on me. I like the textures of the guitar playing and the way that it avoids the usual blues based approach. But there is some of that. It has it's place in musical history and is part of the whole Filmore(sic)West/San Fransisco trip/vibe. It stops and starts and the guitar playing is quite unique in places. There is a degree of audience participation, with some whooops, shouts and a general stoned type of involvement from those there. Where the album does stand out is in the production. The guitars and drums sound really live and have a unique organic/analogue sound. Weller has something similar on Wild Wood.I like my vinyl copy and play it every now and again. Never making it all the way through. But over the years I have played it in parts, enough to have listened to it all. Nicky Hopkins worked with them for a while and said they were always a semi-tone off. So much for spaceships.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electric Warrior, 30 Jun. 2011
This review is from: A Young Persons Guide (Audio CD)
This pulls together the majority of Mark McGuire's CDR/Tape releases and there are quite a few! Very much in the vein of Fripp, circa No Pussyfooting/Evening Star and Rother, from Musik Von Harmonia/Deluxe/Neu! With a touch of Ron Ashton/Fun House and John Cippolina/Happy Trails.
The tracks vary from the spaced out, looped electric, to the warm acoustic. It is a stunning collection and offers a huge trawl through the archive of previous hard to find releases, all carefully curated by Editions Mego. I rate this extremely highly and it is very, very accessable.
If Fennesz is the Hendrix of the laptop, then McGuire must be this generation's Jeff Beck. Work that one out space cadets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glitterbug, 29 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Here Come the Warm Jets (Audio CD)
Timeless sounding album, chock full of ideas to the point of bursting. Opening three tracks are outstanding and come in a breathless rush, as if they cannot be contained within mere vinyl/digital. Don't go for the remastered version. Track down an Island release on vinyl or a CD on Virgin/EG. There are enough of them around so that you don't have to pay silly money. Amazon or Discogs will have them. All the other reviewers have given you the superlatives and all I can say is that you should buy it, steal it, borrow it or aquire it. It's that good.
