5.0 out of 5 stars Well paced and balanced... A cracking read., 30 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quinn's managed to balance history, mystery and a touch of romance without forcing any one of them to the fore at any time. The story is well paced, clearly well researched and brings the horror of the plague years to life alongside the political turmoil of the time. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Classic Gaiman and a wonderful tease of one of his richly fantastical worlds and, possibly, the most suave of characters within it.

This review is from: Amazon Prime Video (App)
Many moments of brilliance with the Amazon Original programming are balanced by a somewhat poorer selection of material in general. My main gripe is their insistence on spurning Chromecast to encourage people to use their systems. This seems like short term non-inclusive thinking that's just going to annoy customers rather than make them any money.

Putting these things on is always fiddly, but the system used with these Spigen films is pretty handy and avoids many of the usual pitfalls. Working fine so far.

Almost spot on - the slim fit is good and the appearance once on is very smart.
One of the nice touches about the HTC10 is the difference in texture and size of the side power and volume buttons; unfortunately this case negates that as the small silver buttons on the side are all the same size and feel.
Other than that, very good.

Good few charges out of it ... easy to use and smart. Fits in a coat pocket at a push, or just sling it in the bag and avoid annoying dead phone/speaker/tablet moments!

5.0 out of 5 stars Broadening horizons ..., 15 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Drastic Fantastic (Audio CD)
As many others in this review section have reiterated, I waited with bated breath for the second album from KT. I have experienced too many disappointing second efforts to not fret slightly about where she would go after the undoubted success of her debut.

My main concern, in fact, was that she would produce a clone album of accoustic driven folk pop that would be pleasant but unchallenging; possibly due to pressure from the record label. Whilst undoubtedly this would sell records I felt it would do her an injustice. Luckily KT, Steve Osborne and Relentless have gone down a completely different route ...

Drastic Fantastic feels like it explores the richness and variety of influences that she talks of that started in her year in Connecticut when she first left Scotland. I could try and draw parallels to various artists who may or may not have made their stamp on the various parts of the album; and certainly some songs give an initial glimmer of influence - White Bird's gentle acoustic strains particularly feel like it may be a direct tribute to The Beatles' Blackbird - but what is essential to realise is that KT's unique style is woven strongly through all the tracks.

All in all the album's variety and it's very departure from Eye to the Telescope's feel are what make it work for me. I'm delighted to see KT using different vocal styles much in the way Joan Osborne made work so well on albums such as Relish. All this adds up to an engaging and satisfying album that begs to be returned to over and over again.

For those that are concerned about the album length (and being more than aware of where I'm posting this review!) I was happy to find my iTunes download was 48.5 minutes long, not including the live version of Suddenly I See that was bundled with it - Bonus studio tracks being, as far as I can see, Mothgirl and Bad Day
