3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright!, 11 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this got good reviews so i was expecting something a little nicer. nothing bad about it as such, just a little thin and the fabric has little 'texture' to the feel. Also the collar seems to ride up and ruckle when i wear a jacket over the jumper. more of a spring jumper than for winter i'd say. it's okay. it did arrive promptly and the price is reasonable.

1.0 out of 5 stars GOOD SERVICE, POOR TAPS!, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BRILLIANT SELLER. GREAT SERVICE! (there, thats the positives done! now for the taps!...) very disappointing. We bought 2 for a double basin vanity unit. The LED lights are very very weak to the point that unless the room is dark or unless you bend down and peer up the tap spout then you just can't see a a light at all. Our water pressure seems fine so I can only presume the LED's are just poor. Also one of the taps didn't light up any colour at all! As we'd already had them them fitted we were going to leave them and manage but a few days later one developed a constant drip (more of a trickle) so they had to go back. So...remove basin unit, remove taps, source new ones etc etc... hassle! Add to this to be honest the taps are unusually large. Bl**dy gigantic to be honest. I think maybe the measurements might be in the description, I'm not sure, but still we weren't prepared for something that big! To be fair the seller refunded us for the defective items without any quibbling (we filmed the faults of both before we returned them just in case and sent them back insured and signed for..) and refunded also our return postage so a good service. To sum up, Yes i would use the seller again the service was great (they could have tried to be awkward and wriggle out of refunding but they were honourable so credit due). But beware the taps!- the pictures look lovely and LEDs in your taps sounded great but in reality they were very very poor.

3.0 out of 5 stars by anyone elses standards 5 stars. compared to doolittle/surfer rosa.... not quite there., 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bossanova (Audio CD)
just as i say. if you want to buy a pixies lp, don;t make it this one., they're past their amazing best. still excellent and worth a listen- any pixies is still better than 95% of whats out there. but buy one of the earlier albums im fairly sure nearly all pixies fans would agree. this is more commercial and accessible and immediate but its not really the better for it.
theres a theme (if not by lyric, then by sound- often both) and a feeling of outer space (check the title,. durr!..), of aliens, of area 51, the desert, of landings.. quite eerie, very plausible.... contrived but designed, in fact very crafted. very intriguing. if this is the album the pixies (for whatever reason) set out to create, then its easily a 5 star-er.
why would they? i'm not sure.
indie, noisy, anthemic, odd, vegas, desert (i'm struggling!..) music.
indie 'velouria' reminds me of 'house of love'.. excellent tune but lacks depth. side one also has the oddly, beautifully crafted 'ana'- mesmerises- quite haunting a delicate complex melody. i think about how you would come up with such a peculiar yet lovely chord arrangement..but then just leave it with the acceptance that black francis can turn a tune better than i ever could! thats why i stack shelves!! such is the world---
to close s1 i really like 'all over the world' its like a soundtrack from close encounters, pixies sound like they're convinced we have been visited. uncanny. it meanders. epic. he appears to talk to the aliens through a megaphone.
i've rarely known an album so themed in its vibe. 'down to the well' puts oasis in their place. a good ten years before (im guessing) this is the real thing.
the narrative continues in 'the happening' (about.. you've guessed it- an alien landing).
perhaps 3 stars is mean.
crucial thing for me is...its odd that a band can be so fresh, open and encompassing, and then decide for whatever reason to very finely tune in to a theme on a subsequent album. im still not sure how to take this, and would still put this down the list on pixies albums. they could haved gone in any direction, and this wasn't a bad one, just a strange one.
3 stars, 4, 5?? you decide.

2.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing.., 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Court And Spark (Audio CD)
'supposed to be one of joni's best. but im sorry i don't get it. very bland. unimaginative. i loved hejira, song to a seagull and blue. even hissing of summer lawns had strong points. (and hejira took some perseverance! but it was worth it). but no, not this one. i love this woman. talented beyond belief. its just this album. maybe its just me (clearly?!) i'll no doubt rediscover it in years to come and realise what a fool i was, but right now.. pass. two stars is generous. because its joni mitchell. don'y buy it unless your a real fan.
