3.0 out of 5 stars It's all right., 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose it was always going to be criticised because of the Nightwish Boys club changing vocalists again but it just didn't grab me the way Dark Passion Play and Imaginaerum did.
No disrespect to Floor Jansen, it seems to work well that the band are not scared to use a different vocalist to give a different flavour to an album and Floor seems to be able to produce anything from gritty rock to angel's breath.
It just feels to me that this album uses the same template as the previous two but doesn't have the same depth of feeling. Some of the poetic verse in the songs is getting a bit unnecessarily flowery as well. I actually found it quite distracting at times.
Maybe it's a slow grower.


Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes - Volume 5 [DVD]
Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes - Volume 5 [DVD]
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Old enough to know better but I don't care., 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I unashamedly admit to being a middle aged Marvel fan and this series of cartoons continues to be entertaining and very clever in the way the seemingly disparate plots intertwine.
Many of the original comic story lines and characters are represented and have been updated without losing their original appeal and flavour.
There are plenty of references and Easter Eggs to test the faithful.
I assume that they will appeal to children but I will not be sharing my copies with any of the messy little tykes.

A whole star was lost however, because some cheesy American voiceover merchant rambles on over the awesome theme music.
Check out volumes 1-4. You know you should know better but you still find yourself joining in with "Avengers Assemble."

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you might think on arrival., 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it seemed a bit cheap and potentially flimsy when it arrived, it is actually stronger than previous covers I have owned because of it's flexibility. The harder cases have been a bit brittle around the edges and you end up losing corners quite easily.

The reason it wasn't a "5" is because of the "flash" around the edge was a bit sharp and uncomfortable initially. It was relative easy to smooth down with a sharp knife but it definitely needed some work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for people with a tendency to lose and break things., 18 Jun. 2015

Two "pens" and four spare "nibs" means you can be as clumsy and stupid as you like for a long time!
Seems to work very well with my iPad Mini and 'Penultimate' App.
Comfortable to write with but it will take a while for you to enter handwriting competitions.
You could criticise the lack of clip but for me, it is held beautifully in the curved overlap of a Logitech Keyboard case.
I like the little engraved Moose as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Live album for the Prayer tour, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Entreat (Audio CD)
All tracks from Disintegration (in fact, when Disintegration was re-released in 2010, it included this 'album').
I needed to get this to replace a chewed cassette (remember those?) as I suddenly realised that there was a gap in my overstuffed Cure CD (remember those?) shelf.
For completists really. If you want a cracking Cure Live album, buy 'Concert' for the early work and 'Show' for the pinnacle of their powers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Seemed OK to me..., 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will state at this point that I had difficulties with 1-click ordering so I ended up with two of these!
Then I discovered that it wouldn't fit my GT Tachyon because some of the connecting points were too small for the bolts provided. Whether this is down to the bike or the rack I couldn't say (but it is the second rack I've tried and failed with).
I had no problems returning it to a local Sports Direct outlet.

Design and construction is similar to one I had previously and that one lasted me for years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Functional - what more do you need?, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually use cycling shoes/cleats for longer rides or commuting and these are good value and easy to get on with.
It was also nice to have an option of being able to pop to the shops without clip-clopping around the supermarket so the tough plastic platforms are a good addition.
The platforms took some "persuading" to fit in (I trod on them eventually) and they are not massively comfortable for longer rides but they do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eccentric mix of Cure and Banshees, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Sunshine (Audio CD)
An album that wouldn't look out of place on a 4AD label with shades of Cocteau Twins in my opinion.
If you are a fan of Robert Smith and/or Steve Severin (or light hearted gothic pop albums about sex and death), you can't go far wrong with it.
It might not completely blow you away but it's definitely a "nice to have."

5.0 out of 5 stars They work., 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Difficult to get overly excited about pedal clips. They clip on and off nicely.
I suspect that anyone buying them will have the good sense to check the compatibility with their pedals.
