3.0 out of 5 stars Lacks sparkle, 8 Jun. 2017
This review is from: Cover My Tracks (Audio CD)
This is Charlie Fink's, solo album, It has a similar sound to Noah and the whale, but somehow lacks the sparkle. Good, but not great.

1.0 out of 5 stars This has to be the worst book ever written about Lou Reed., 10 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has to be the worst book ever written about Lou Reed.( and that's saying something, as most are pretty poor and vindictive) Ms Kronstad may have been Lou's first wife, but her memory is clearly wanting, as her recollections regarding certain events are completely wrong, for example she claims to have been at Max's Kansas city to witness Lou's last performance with The Velvet Underground. She says she watched John Cale on stage with him, which is strange as he left the band 2 years earlier. To Prove it an album "Live at max's Kansas city is easily available. The Book is riddled with lazy errors. A great deal of the rest of this book is alarmingly boring, dealing with her doomed relationship with Reed. I read it so you don't have too.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is without doubt the worst Film to feature Batman & Superman that I have ..., 8 Aug. 2016
This is without doubt the worst Film to feature Batman & Superman that I have ever seen ( Yes worse than Batman & Robin, & Superman 4 ). The plot has more holes than a string vest . As for the performances Oh Boy, Henry is as wooden as ever, while Jesse is completely miscast, as is Jeremy irons, who plays a particularly grumpy Alfred. Worst of all is the wafer thin plot .running at 2 1/2 hours this is bum numbing torture . Bearing in mind Batman /Superman team ups have been Featured in DC comics since the 40's Its amazing that they couldn't have found a better story.

Notes from the Velvet Underground: The Life of Lou Reed
Notes from the Velvet Underground: The Life of Lou Reed
by Howard Sounes
Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars This book will leave you wanting., 7 Aug. 2016
Sounes Book is well written, But he seems very harsh on his subject. No one ever said that Lou Reed was a nice guy, (Certainly not Lou himself ). Sounes seems to dwell on Lou's Recalcitrant Nature, often Dismissing The Work as insubstantial. This I have to take issue with, While not every album was a masterpiece, there was much more that was great, than was not. Lou tried many different styles. In particular The Bells, an album that was clearly influenced by Phil Specter's work with Dion in the 70's. The Album has an amazing Wall of sound feel to it, that is wonderful when played loud. On His amazing Berlin album, Sounes claims that Lou did very little writing. Rubbish !! some of the songs were written During his time with the Velvet Underground, but all were rewritten And Rearranged extensively. So if you are interested in a Tabloid trawl through Reeds Darker side, then this books for you. However if like me you want to know about the music, This book will leave you wanting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cross between Ice cold in Alex, and Mad max, 4 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Sweat [DVD] (DVD)
A cross between Ice cold in Alex, and Mad max. This beautifully Shot film is well titled, as 4 crooks transport stolen gold through the desert. A silly but enjoyable romp. Also stars the always excellent Cyrille Thouvenin.

2.0 out of 5 stars This Plays like a cheap Daytime soap., 22 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Soft Lad (DVD)
I had high hopes for this film given the number of positive reviews it has garnered. Sadly it is let down by 1) An obvious plot 2) clunky dialog.3) poor acting from the 2 male leads. Jonny Labey can certainly dance, but his cod liverbirds accent is not great.
In Short this plays like a cheap (The whole film was made for £20,000) daytime soap. Shame
