4.0 out of 5 stars Look Back On This Album, 30 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Looking Back (Audio CD)
A storming album from John Mayall. His soulful blues voice comes out beautifully from the opening track Mr James. Unlike fellow compatriots of his time , like Rory gallagher, John Mayall never really wen down the rock road too much and this album is full of traditional blues classics. So Many Roads sums the album up with traditional routes and little credit towards the electric rock era, yet with some beautiful electric guitar playing...... My favourite track is It Hurts Me Too with some stonking piano work. Good album and should be part of your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but effective, 30 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Deuce (Audio CD)
Anyone who is used to the energy and harder style of Tattoo would be slightly disappointed at the slightly more laid back approach on Deuce. That's not to say that it is not a good album but it is very much in his blues roots. The outstanding track to me is In Your Town but the style is so varied that there is something for everyone.

This album stands the test of time and is very personal. One for the blues purists as well as Rory fans......

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Protection that just does the job..., 27 Aug. 2009
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You wonder when a new years Anti-Virus programme comes out - what new jingles could this year possibly bring? Well, I'll be honest this product doesnt inspire enthusiasm however it does look like a genuinely solid computer protection program.

Over the years I have had experience of various different virus protection software brands, such as Trend, Norton, Mcafee and also Kaspersky. For many years I used to use Mcafee it was (and likely still is) a good product, however in recent years it has become a bit cumbersome for me. So Kaspersky it was (I suffered a month of both Trend and Norton and decided never to return) I have used the full internet suite for the past year, with this years offering coming with what can only be described as a upgraded dumbed down protection. Due to the lack of a firewall it also requires this installed by another vendor (I chose Komodo).

So down to the product, it comes in the standard packaging, not much to say on that front. Then comes installation, this version offers 3 PC setup. It installed fine on 2 Vista 32-bit laptops (the 3rd license isnt needed currently) with minimal effort, however the disk recieved immediately needed to download a 70mb update to the program. Which would have been fine apart from the fact that the downloader kept failing - it did eventually work on about the 4th try.

So the program itself, it loads quickly, it is efficent in tracking unknown programs and it basically fulfills its requirements. There really isnt much to add on the operation side of it. It does exactly what it is supposed to be doing, and it does it well.

The only real minor downsides are the need to install a seperate firewall and the lack of network tracking (found this very useful on my desktop for the past year for tracking bandwidth). So I must say that I would advise people to purchase the Internet Security Suite that Kaspersky offer for around the same price on Amazon.

So yes, its a good product, there arent many abnormal properties that other Anti-Virus programs dont have but tis makes the product solid and dependable, just not quite as full as it should be, it meets but does not exceed expectations - which is the main reason I give it 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Converted to Electric!, 26 Aug. 2009
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must admit, when this shaver first arrived I was apprehensive to say the least, previous to this shaver I had never owned, let alone used, an electric shaver. It was packaged in a large box which looked pretty impressive.

Opening it up was a bit of a challenge, the packaging had to be cut away and thrown.. not salvageable. Then came the construction of this foreign object, to be honest it isnt the friendliest to put together, for someone who doesnt know anything about and electric shavers setup it took about 10 minutes to realise what I was supposed to be doing. (however once it clicked it was fairly simple).

The object can be charged in two ways, through the large base with the inbuilt moisteriser which also allows the shaver to take on new reserves of it, or through the small stand, which may be preferable in tighter spaces.

Well, when it came to the first usage it was rather worrying, this large electric item which was supposed to take the place of my Mach 3. Looked rather dangerous to me! Anyway I Persevered - and what rewards were to be reaped.

The shaver has inbuilt moisturiser release which secretes out of 2 of the 3 circuler shavers. It spreads quickly and cleanly, and smoothly allows the shaver to move. It gives a pleasent experience, I would even say it makes shaving enjoyable. It shaves closely and you can move the shaver across your face without any risk of injury.

Having now used the shaver I can safely say that in comparison to my 'old' Mach 3 the shave is closer, more accurate and a generally more pleasent experience.

I must say that overall I would definately recommend this product, once you get past the difficulties of pictorial instructions the usage of this shaver is so superior to any other that I have used for a wet shave that it easily secures 5 stars for me - even if it does retail quite expensively.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read - Though sometimes overly indulgent!, 19 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The Harrowing (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The first thing that should probably be mentioned is that the book itself, rather luckily, has large font. Just thought it could be useful for those of use who are bored of spending their lives staring at increasingly smaller fonts of cheap versions of books.

The book itself is a good quality read - throughout the book has a sense of progression which allows the reader to feel how the story is continuing, however it should be said that some parts of it do somewhat require a grind away approach - where the story sometimes lacks progression and requires an effort to push on, for me this was in the earlier stages of the book, whilst I found the later parts to move suitably quickly.

The main issue that stood out to me is the authors indulgence in rather fantastical literary devices - as many previous reviewers have stated, some metaphors border on the preposterous and stand out. (they certainly made me go 'woah' at some points where small events could be turned into the Apocalypse.)

Other than that, theres not much else to say, it is a sturdy offering from a upcoming author and would certainly be of interest to anyone interested in either psycological fiction or historical fiction - or for that matter anyone who enjoys a good book!

3.0 out of 5 stars An Amusing Little Album, 13 Dec. 2007
An album for the converted and not for those who listen to Gloria Estefen.....
I think there's a good dose of Rage ATM here as Silenced seems to have borrowed some rifts. A lot of growling which appears to be the idea of the whole album but then that's Mudvayne, Opeth, Mastodon and more. So if you are a big Opeth or Mastodon fan is this album for you? Probably not as it's darker and heavier. Trapped In The Wake Of A Dream tries to get briefly proggy but descends into heavyweight again. Not Falling is heavy heavy and then we have some meoldic vocals.... And that is the problem with the Album. You're never sure where it's taking you. Even the semi ballad World Is Cold gives up halfway and growls. There are still some greta heavy heavy rifts with my favourite being The Patient Mental. By the time I got Solve et Coagula the growling screaming was starting to growl and scream too much though.
Sorry Mudvayne fans but only 3 stars (just)for me.

Mudvayne fans would give this album 5 stars but if you are passing by and wondering whether to try (just like I did with great success with Riverside, Two and Amplifier) then you may be disappointed! 3 stars for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cat Scratching Then Purring, 13 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Cat Scratch Fever (Audio CD)
What a clasic Cat Scratch Fever is, was and will be. So an album witht his as the title track should be great or is it?

Title track is 10/10 of course and then it looks good with some hard rocking Wand Dang Sweet Poontang. But then we start to lose our way and by the time we get to the instrumental Homebound or the AOR Workin' Hard Playin' Hard you start wondering... There is this American Rock thing where however hard rocking they are in comes the AOR and for a couple of tracks in the middle it looks like that. Sweet Sally rescues Nugent though and Fist Fightin' Son Of A Gun shows Nugent at his best again. Good end with Out of Control so it's a typical album of a 'good' artist. Great start, dodgy middle and then a good finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why win the lottery when you have bands like this?, 7 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Rapid Eye Movement (Audio CD)
RUBBISH RUBBISH RUBBISH is the star rating. It's more than five stars. This album is simply the best album since Floyd's Wish You Were Here and Porcupine Tree's Deadwing. And surprise surprise it is a mix of both.

There are classics and then there are classics and this is one of them. Beautiful lyrics with more Porcupine Tree than Floyd. Prog rock at it's best; couple of beers, a nice women, dim the lighting, sample whatever and away you go into another world.

Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Metal Meets Swing, 11 Oct. 2007
This review is from: The Butchers Ballroom (Audio CD)
When I first heard Apocalyptica live I thought that was the most new metal sound ever but this is awesome. Diablo Swing Orchestra are the best and freshest band I've ever ever heard. The opening track Balrog Boogie sets the scene and so much better than Nightwish. My favourite track is Ragdoll physics but listen, buy and enjoy.

Just buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the best band around???, 26 Mar. 2006
This review is from: ROSENROT (Audio CD)
Sehnsucht and Mutter set the standard and it was so high how can you keep this up. Most top bands make 2 or 3 great albums and then run out of steam; so what about Rammstein?
If this was my first Rammstein album I would have to buy some more. Benzin is a powerful opening track and Mann Gegen Mann is not bad either. But then (after Rosenrot) we get back into proper Rammstein stuff. heavy or what! Miss out the silly ballad track 6..........
