5.0 out of 5 stars Love Airbag, so I was expecting a good debut ..., 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love Airbag, so I was expecting a good debut album from Bjorn Riis and I got it.
Love the sound of his guitar, which is Gilmourish, but nonetheless very enjoyable.
There are a lot of average prog rock bands out there, so it is refreshing to hear good musicianship as displayed on this album.
Fans of the Band will not be disappointed with this solo offering

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed Uncoloured and Open Sound Without Distorted Heavy Bass, 5 Mar. 2015
I have to say that these speakers are truly outstanding for the money.
Being a Naim aficionado I am not easily pleased.
The Bose Companion 20's are very open and detailed on my iMac, without the heavy distorted bass you get on lesser quality cheaper computer speakers.
No sign of any background hiss either, being extremely quiet when not playing music through them.
All in all I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend them without reservation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like a Celtic Music For Pleasure offering, 15 Nov. 2014

Bit cheesy really.
Like a Celtic Music For Pleasure offering.
Last track is the best though, more traditional and uncommercial unlike the rest of the album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd But Not As We Know Them, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Endless River (Audio CD)
I am not going to go through every track like a top 100 reviewer and tell you that the fifth string on the guitar solo on track five was flat, I am just going to give you an honest opinion as a life long Floyd fanatic.
I know some people are going to say, 'well what do you expect it to be like, times have moved on and this is reflected in this album'.
Sorry, but it doesn't sound like them and the only track that is discernible as Pink Floyd is track 14.
Where is the singing gone? We have the last track with vocals only. Is this the best that they can do?
If I were Gilmore, I wouldn't have bothered, because it will not stand up with their previous albums in a million years.
Rick Wright is probably turning in his grave as I write this review.
The keyboards are just not recognisable as Pink Floyd. They sound like some psychedelic modern prog band who have just started out.
I can't think of anything really positive to say and I am really disappointed with this offering.
It is more to do with Dave Gilmour as a solo artist than it is to do with Pink Floyd.
Shame it has been issued as their last possible album as I for one, don't think that it will be remembered as anything other than a last ditch attempt to cash in on the back of one of the greatest rock bands in history.
I am absolutely gutted.

1.0 out of 5 stars useless piece of equipment, 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dreadful, useless piece of equipment.
Buy a decent corkscrew.
Instead of removing the cork, it pushes it in to the bottle.
My kitchen ceiling was showered in wine after attempting to open a bottle.
Avoid like the plague.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Can You Say About Whitney Houston, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To put it quite simply, this lady was probably one of the best singers of all time.
All the great songs are on here including ones from the Bodyguard film.
The quivering lips still stick in my mind as she belts out I Will Always Love You.
She could have produced many more wonderful albums and it is such a shame that she wasted her talent in the end.
RIP Whitney Houston.
Your legacy will forever be remembered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Robot Madness, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Music For Robots (Audio CD)
I bought this after hearing the promo track on You Tube.
Amazing video of the guitarist with a ridiculous amount of plectrums was quite astonishing.
Doesn't quite hit the spot with the CD as the act is very visual as you could imagine.
Nonetheless, it does provide a good talking point with friends and visitors.
Especially when you tell them that the music is played by robots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Release, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ravens And Lullabies (Audio CD)
I have to say that this album is one of my favourite releases of the past few years.
One listen was enough to get me hooked.
Brilliant musicianship from the very first track and a great collaboration with Wakeman.
Giltrap is one of those rare artists who exudes class and rarely could be said (if ever ) to have produced anything that wasn't of the highest standard.
The acoustic guitar of Giltrap just sounds sensational.
The tracks are varied in their style and that is what makes this release so engaging.
If you love real musicians and excellent music, then please don't let this one pass you by.
