Live at Bush Hall
Live at Bush Hall
Offered by FLASH
Price: £5.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concert for fans of great songwriting, 21 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live at Bush Hall (DVD)
Excellent intimate concert featuring most of the songs from Martin's last album (Defenestration of St.Martin), with some older classics such as 'Olympian' and 'London, can you wait?'. The concert is comprised of Martin on vocals accompanied by a pianist. I love the fact they included the CD and DVD of the concert in one deluxe package. Excellent value and Martin's voice is superlative and he really does justice to the songs. Obviously I love Gene and Martin's solo album but other people in my house are ok watching this dvd too because they recognise great songwriting and vocals when they hear it!
I really hope Martin records another album soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best Moz compilation CD, 21 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World Of (Audio CD)
Excellent compilation CD and is worth having even if you have everything by Moz already. The audio quality is very high and sound like remastered versions. This is one of the better Moz compilations as it has a nice variety of songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly boring for kids and adults, 5 Jun. 2017
My kids were very disappointed with this 5th instalment of a franchise that really should be put on ice at this stage.
Far too much boring yak-non-stop talking and not enough action/humour/music. Snooze fest.


Green Woman HC (The Green Woman)
Green Woman HC (The Green Woman)
by Peter Straub
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Murder, 5 Jun. 2017
This isn't the worst graphic novel I've ever read but its far from the best. I read it because i love Peter Straub and his characters from The Throat and Magic Terror. However the story in the graphic novel is very light and too cliched to be interesting. It doesn't do much to progress the character of Fee Bandolier and it feels like a bit of a cash in. I wouldn't bother buying this. I'm very glad I got this from the library and didn't waste my money on it. Spend your money on a Straub novel instead.

The Cure - Out Of The Woods [2004] [DVD] [2006]
Dvd ~ The Cure
Price: £12.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Deadwood, 21 May 2017
Absolute waste of time and money. Don't buy this uninformative dross. The DVD consists of soundbites from music industry types (janice long, steve severin, paul morley are noteworthy but the rest unforgettable non entities).
Here is an example of how useless their comments are: 'The Cure are pure goth. Very dark. Robert Smith had dark hair and wore dark clothes.'
Or 'They had great tunes such as InBetween Days and Lovecats.'
All personal opinions from people who obviously know SFA about The Cure.
This DVD is a complete waste of time. Lazy lazy lazy production by cynical empty headed chancers trying to make money from fans.
No concert footage. No new photos. Cheap thrown together armchair interviews with people who are painful to listen to. You should spend the hour listening to a Cure album instead of listening to fools talking about how goth and depressing the albums are. The voiceover refers to Robert as 'plump' and 'fat Bob'. That says it all really.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, bloated slow moving non event, 27 Mar. 2017
This review is from: Arrival [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Boring, bloated, and self indulgent navel gazing. The story/plot 'twist' is laughably obvious. The special effects are good but with no proper story they are as ineffectual as ink in water.


Planet Of The Apes 2015 SDCC Exclusive Figure Set
Planet Of The Apes 2015 SDCC Exclusive Figure Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Ape!, 10 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely fantastic and realistic reproductions of the main characters from the Apes films. The articulation is very good and the figures look very well. The weapons fit into their paws fairly well. Not suitable for young kids to play with because these figures are high quality collectors items. The boxes are very nice too and deserve to be well kept.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album by The Cure, 10 Mar. 2017
Excellent definitive Cure album.
The selling price of more than seven hundred pounds sterling is a complete joke. Why would anyone in their right mind pay that kind of money for something that should only cost approx. 18 pounds?
Anyway, the album is great and the bonus cds are excellent demos and outtakes and a longer version of the previously released Entreat album recorded at Wembley during the superlative Prayer Tour in 1989. But not even Robert Smith would claim it is worth seven hundred pounds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is that the hand of the reader demanding money back for this book?, 3 Feb. 2017
This review is from: The Sickness (Paperback)
Is that the hand of a recently deceased reader demanding money back for this book? Not the real Stephen King. Poorly written recycled fluff. I feel bad that some trees had to die to create this crap. Pity Amazon doesn't allow zero star reviews.


Lovesong
Lovesong

Price: £18.74

5.0 out of 5 stars For all Cure fans, 12 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lovesong (Audio CD)
Excellent CD featuring the original 7" version of Lovesong, the excellent 12" extended version of Lovesomg, 2Late, and Fear of Ghosts. The CD is worth buying even just for 2Late as that is an excellent and definitive Cure song that really should have been on the Disintegration album. Fear of Ghosts is a strong song too but not as catchy as 2Late. Porl Thompson's guitar work and Boris Williams's drumming on 2Late are a joy to hear. The Lovesong CD comes from a time when bands really cared about their releases and their bsides. This CD is a must-buy for Cure fans.
