5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great album!, 22 Jan. 2017
This review is from: Refugee (Audio CD)
I still remember all the fuss surrounding this album when it came out....Was it really them playing? Yes it was...And pretty good it is too. Unfortunately it didn't sell very well and they split pretty quickly. The drummer is now in Avenged Sevenfold and unbelievably the guitarist manages a music store in Newcastle! Anyway if you get a chance give it a go it might be a bit dated but it's still a damn fine record! I'm listening to it as I write this!

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy five stars!, 16 Jan. 2017
This review is from: Restless and Live (Audio CD)
I approached this with some trepidation as i was worried that losing the original drummer plus the great Herman frank might have ruined them, But it seems they've found worthy replacements and this live set is excellent. So far i'm listening to the audio....but i'm very tempted to buy the blu ray set a.s.a.p! It's a shame that Herman Frank wasn't given more room to shine as he is a great guitarist, but allegedly Wolf Hoffman and Peter Baltes feel it's their band and no one else is allowed to write songs! I have a live d.v.d with Herman Frank and in the whole set he gets to play one solo! Wolf Hoffman may be a good guitarist but it's almost as if he's hogging the limelight! Anyway, this is great stuff and i can't wait to see it on blu ray. PS....If you haven't already check out Herman Franks three cd's they are all great!

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's laughable!, 16 Jan. 2017
I love all things Sherlock Holmes, read every book...seen every film and series(even the Robert Downey ones) and i've enjoyed them all. But, this series which started off okay has quickly become so bad it's laughable. And so we come to series 4 which has been even worse...if possible. And it culminated last night in quite possibly the biggest pile of **** i have ever seen! The writers have got so far up themselves it's a joke. I firmly hope this is the end of it because any self respecting Sherlock Holmes fan would laugh themselves to death it's so bad. Yes,i'm ranting on but i love the stories and the Basil Rathbone films plus Jeremy Bretts version....but this was an insult to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who is probably spinning in his grave! Truly appalling....feel free to disagree.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a big zz top fan and...., 11 Sept. 2016
Much like the big zz top fan who seems to be under the impression that Eliminator was their first album i am a big fan, but i love their early albums...i actually bought their first album on import before it's release in England. I have every album they have ever done plus some dodgy ones, the only one i'm not mad on is la futura which didn't really impress me, truth be told i just prefer the albums up until Eliminator when they played great blues rock. In fact i just wish they'd released a live album around Fandango time. Their is some stuff on you tube but it's very raw. Anyway this live stuff is good although Billys guitar sounds a bit lacking, he needs to play his les paul again! I almost feel sorry for the 2 star review guy as he's missing out on their best stuff.....NOT a big zz top fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars It may not be the original Blackfoot,but....., 5 Aug. 2016
This review is from: Southern Native (Audio CD)
It's still a damn fine album! I"m really not sure why Rick medlocke decided to split the Blackfoot that were doing the rounds about four years ago. I have a live cd/dvd of them and they were bloody good. Anyway he did and then somewhat bizzarely he got four unknowns and called them Blackfoot! So there is not one original member. And now we have the first album by the new band, produced by Rick medlocke and he plays some guitar as well. So what's it like you ask....well i've listened to it a couple of times and i like it. No it's not gonna sound much like Blackfoot but put your prejudices aside and i think it's good. Great production, and all the instruments sound clear and well played,some good guitar playing too. To sum it up,don't expect the original sound but listen with open ears...then judge it. My only complaint is it's too damn short!

1.0 out of 5 stars No spare blade! Total rip off!, 18 July 2016
My one star review is not so much for the razor, more for the fact it is advertised as coming with two blades, one to use immediately and a spare. I got one blade....no spare. So i'm paying an extra ten or more pounds for nothing! Total rip off! Beware of false advertising.

2.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely nothing like the books!, 11 May 2016
This review is from: The Durrells [DVD] [2016] (DVD)
I'm sorry to be the voice of dissent, but i loved the books when i was a lot younger and i was quite looking forward to this,but, it was a travesty of the original books and bore practically no relation to the source material. It's only saving grace was it looked pretty! It seems to me they are trying to do another 'Darling buds of may' which was massively popular, but again was nothing like the books. The difference being that the Durrells were a real family and if i were any relation i'd be horrified with how they changed them in this series the worst being the mother who is woefully miscast. Just read the books and hopefully you'll see what i mean. Apparentlly it's been filmed twice before, once as a series and once as a film, maybe one day they'll do it justice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Over expensive rubbish!, 29 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How this strap can be worth over £30.00 is beyond me. On opening the box i was quite impressed until i realised the buckle was not fixed to the strap. I managed to refit it but it immediately popped off again! I'm returning it as unfit but i do feel that it's pretty cheaply made and not worth the high price, maybe i got a faulty one but i won't be purchasing another.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Brainstorm....of course it's great!, 4 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Scary Creatures (Audio CD)
I love power metal, especially twin crunchy non-wimpy stuff! Primal fear, mystic prophecy....loads of them. And I love Brainstorm, so I can't really fault this album. I've only listened once as I have a backlog of music a mile long! But on first listen it's as good as Firesoul...possibly better. To sum up,if you like Brainstorm or proper power metal....get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly awesome!!!!!, 4 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Volume 3 (Audio CD)
This is (obviously) the third mop album and in a couple of words it's bloody brilliant! In case you don't know these albums are the brainchild of a guy named Janne Stark, he assembles a group of fantastic musicians and records cover versions of rock classics. The guitars on all of them are little short of stunning and this album is no exception. It hasn't even finished yet and I'm planning on playing it again! To put it simply if you like awesome guitar solos plus great vocals and songs then please,please buy this album, you won't regret it.
