2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality - doesn't last, 19 July 2016

I bought one of these, and it broke quite quickly. Assumed it was me treating it too roughly, so u bought another... and that's broken within weeks too. Not a good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read, 19 Jan. 2016

Rob Moore knows his subject extremely well, and practices what he preaches in this book. He writes in an easy-going personal style, yet the content is full of insights gained from a lot of thinking, a lot of "personal development" effort/time, and - most importantly - real experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely collection of old favourite advent carols with some newer pieces - the Chilcott ..., 6 Dec. 2015
Lovely recording. Unfussy, clear clean singing from a young but polished choir. A lovely collection of old favourite advent carols with some newer pieces - the Chilcott and others - thrown into and enhancing the mix. I can easily see this becoming one of my regular Advent listens, to get me in the mood for the upcoming onslaught of "Hark The Herald"s.

The track-listing on Amazon is a bit hopeless, and wrong. Find the listing on the Orchid Classics site for accurate information. But that doesn't detract from the music, so five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not great, 30 April 2013

This review is from: Now What ?! (MP3 Download)
If the brief had been "create an album that sounds like Perfect Strangers meets Purpendicular", then they couldn't have done a better job.

The production is definitely a step up from previous albums. My only quibbles with that aspect are that the drums need a bit more presence; the guitar is positioned far enough left to make listening on earphones slightly odd; and that cheesy turn-down ending on Hell To Pay is just, well, cheesy. But all of those things are personal preference, not "faults" really.

No, my main criticism is of Don Airey's playing. While he's clearly letting rip in a way that we've not heard from the Purps since Purpendicular, and the album is all the better for that ... his playing just lacks the rhythmic precision and poise (and invention) of Jon Lord's. I've always felt that Steve Morse is a more than adequate replacement for Blackmore (not least because he bothers to turn up, and to play the right notes at the right time, both of which were beyond Blackmore's powers of concentration in his latter Purple years!). But somehow Don Airey - very capable though he is - just doesn't bring to the party the sheer musicality that Jon Lord did.

Stepping back, though, after the fairly humdrum efforts of Abandon and Bananas, and the very patchy Rapture of the Deep, this album definitely qualifies to be called a "return to form". They've broken away somewhat from the predictable rock formula and allowed back in some of the inventiveness that made Purpendicular one of the best albums of the 1990s (I may be biased). Happy listener here.

(UPDATE: I originally gave this 4 stars, but as I can't give 4.5, which is what I would like, I'll have to change it to 5)

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice thing, but not durable enough for the price, 26 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice cover, and the light can be very useful occasionally.

However, the clips which attach the Kindle into the case are too flimsy. We bought two of these cases in December 2010. By October 2011 one of the clips on one case had broken off completely, rendering the case useless. And on the other case, it's not yet broken off but is definitely weakening. This is just through ordinary use, without any rough treatment. At this price, the case is not good value for money if you can't rely on it to last even one year.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good value, 20 Nov. 2011
It's a nice, and fun, accessory for the Bruder tractors. However .... while the tractors themselves are made of a good quality plastic, and seem very durable, this trailer is made of very cheap brittle plastic, and is simply not of the same quality. Avoid. Or, if you don't avoid, don't be surprised if it - particularly the tipping/opening mechanism - doesn't last very long. I had to remove and dispose of the broken tipping mechanism on ours, so what's left is half an over-priced toy - what's left still works, for now, but be warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, 17 Oct. 2011

How to review this book without giving too many spoilers for those who've not yet read it?
I found this a really compelling read. The way in which the plot gradually develops and darkens, and keeps throwing surprises at you, is thrilling, and kept me hooked until the very end. The author has taken a mundane (although genuinely horrid) medical issue - the RSI from which the main character suffers - and woven it into an imaginative and unnerving psychological journey. Highly recommended.
