South Pacific [Blu-ray] [1958]
South Pacific [Blu-ray] [1958]
Dvd ~ Mitzi Gaynor
Price: £8.00

2.0 out of 5 stars A collection of unrelated songs poorly strung into a disjointed storyline, 18 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classic musical from the USA. Doesn't work for me, despite some great tunes. Feels like a selection of highlights from a longer story, with great gaps in the narrative. Almost as if someone had a collection of unrelated songs and tried (but failed) to link them into a storyline.

Not a patch on My Fair Lady, Sound of Music, or West Side Story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent prog-heavy post-rock, 18 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amplifier (Audio CD)
Excellent prog-heavy post-rock. Hard to compare to anything else (for me anyway). Wikipedia quotes a review which described them as "Soundgarden, Tool, Black Sabbath, Oceansize and Pink Floyd taking copious amounts of mind-altering substances and venturing on a trip through time and space (to another dimension), and back again." and says "their music is characterised by guitarist Sel Balamir's effect pedals, Matt Brobin's complex drumming, extended heavy sections, atmospheric compositions and philosophical lyrics." All sounds about right to me.

I started with their 2017 album and rapidly bought up the entire back catalogue! This (their first) album and The Octopus first are my favourites, though there isn't a bad one in there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Converted me!, 18 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very comfortable to wear. These converted me to the "separatec" approach to men's undies! Quite expensive though. Best to wait and catch them on lightning deal if you can.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dispenses 4 or 5 times the soap needed, even on lowest setting, 18 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor quality compared to Simple Human one (3 or 4 times the price, so no surprise really). Dispenses far too much (4 or 5 times the amount needed for a simple handwash) even on the lowest setting. Impossible to tell when it is running low on soap. Not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musically, visually and aurally excellent concert blu ray, 16 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent concert performance in a fairly intimate setting. Musically superb... Some echoes of Pink Floyd, as anyone who knows RPWL would expect. Visually brilliant. Sound quality too... With a choice of Dolby Atmos (not tested), DTS/LPCM 5.1, or stereo, and also choice of hearing the original German spoken links or overdubbed in English.

Bog standard chillout music in 5.1 surround sound. Guaranteed to send you off to sleep.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fairly average documentary, 7 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As elsewhere reviewed, this is a fairly average documentary which, whilst collecting some interesting information about the context of SGPLHB, has none of the music itself. Worth a watch if it comes on TV, but £13 for the blu-ray is a rip-off. If I hadn't pre-ordered it I'd have had time to read other reviews and wouldn't have splashed out!

This review is from: Splendor Solis (Audio CD)
As if Led Zep continued to put out excellent albums, but with Jim Morrison as lead vocalist. I've only just discovered The Tea Party and am buying up the back catalogue as quickly as I can!

2.0 out of 5 stars Musically gorgeous. Visually bizarre., 19 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Musically gorgeous. Visually bizarre and unWagner. Why not use technological advances such as surround sound and holography to enhance a traditional production as, no doubt, Wagner would have done, rather than invest in these ludicrous 'modernisations' of the staging?
