Tough gloves with good grip and a stylish design. A little tight fitting for my adult hands but still usable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Staggering., 12 July 2016
This review is from: Polymer [Explicit] (MP3 Download)
Tonedeff has released one of the most ambitious, honest and genre-bending albums of the decade with his second full-length LP "Polymer".

The first thing you need to know is that this is not a hip-hop album. After years of restraining himself artistically to appease underground hip-hop fans, Tonedeff has fully unleashed his breadth of musical influences into a project that's almost impossible to fit into a box. Fans of James Blake, M83 and Sigur Ros are going to get some kicks here, as will anyone who's a fan of modern electronic production, heavy 808 drums and yes.. rapping. Whilst this may not be a 'hip-hop' album of sorts, Tone certainly does rap circles around the entire genre with his impeccably technical flow and lyricism.

On the one hand you have deeply personal tracks that tackle family, anxiety and self-sabotage, yet on the other he's accomplishing those sentiments whilst giving a masterclass in emceeing. Rarely is this more obvious than the track "Demon" where Tone raps at breakneck speed in a 6/8 time signature (Rap is hardly EVER in anything other than standard 4/4) whilst he unravels his deeply personal battle with anxiety and his fear of time catching up with him. It contains some of the most impressive verses you'll probably ever hear from a rapper on a purely technical level.

The rapping is never a crutch to hold up a song though, as almost every angle of this project is supported by layers of lushious vocals, lathered in reverb and interwoven with harmonies. It's an intoxicating blend that glides you from section to section, more concerned with taking you on a journey than getting to the [Insert Hook Here] bit. Tonedeff has always flirted with singing in the past, but here is the true unfaltering marriage of those two distinct vocal disciplines. He is simply the guy who can do it all.

Meanwhile, the production on this album is likely unlike anything you've ever heard. Ethereal pads, haunting vocals and twinkly synths are somehow successfully mixed with hard hitting drums, sinister bass, aggressively distorted leads and occasionally industrial clunks. On paper it should sound like a mess, but in reality it's one of the most impressive blurring of genres I've literally ever heard. Whilst this extends throughout the album, some of it's biggest moments such as the crescendo in "Control" are gloriously cinematic and powerful - exploding your speakers with emotion and noise. To think that this was all accomplished by one man without a record label supporting him or even a fancy studio is simply staggering.

Narratively this is the tale of a man who's life has fallen to pieces whilst he scrambles to balance both his personal life and his art, delving into Tonedeff's inner-soul and smothering you with it's raw, cathartic emotion. The detail of which might be missed on first glance as at times Tone's rapid-fire delivery makes hefty statements whizz past your head in swift succession. But this isn't a project you can understand everything from after 60 minutes, it demands you give it multiple listens and time in order for it to be digested and thoroughly examined. Those who are willing to really listen and perhaps follow along with the lyrics will be those most rewarded, as Tone opens his deepest, darkest and most difficult thoughts for your analysis.

I've listened to this album probably 20 times from start to finish so far and I will no doubt be playing it for years to come. It is at times an unfathomable achievement and deserving of unrelenting attention and praise. It's certainly not an album for the narrow-minded, you will probably be challenged by it at some point, but musical connoisseurs are going to bask in it's intricacies and rich powerful production. Entertaining, honest and excessive..

It is one hell of a ride.

A powerful router with excellent connection and a sleek look. This is by far the best router I've used in terms of not losing connectivity or having to reset often. My download speeds have noticeably increased and I seem to have lower ping when playing on my xbox. It's got all the features and connections you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doom reminds us why we play video games., 11 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Doom (Xbox One) (Video Game)
After seeing a bunch of critics rate this game 7's and 8's, I thought maybe I'd just skip it for now and pick it up cheaply down the line. But after hearing more and more buzz about the campaign, I decided to take the plunge - and I am so glad that I did.

Doom does something incredibly smart and incredibly brave. It eschews the modern expectation of a FPS in 2016 for something originally seen over 20 years ago. There's no sprint button here, no reload button either.. it's non-stop run-and-gun fury. There's no tutorial, no re-generating health and no gratuitous quicktime-ridden cutscenes either. It's a reminder to what shooters used to be, before everyone took themselves so seriously.

It's fun.

But it's also not just a re-skin of a bygone era. It updates the formula with modern elements that compliment the basic gameplay. Secrets, for example, were always a part of the old Doom games and you'll find plenty of those here, but the rewards now contribute towards a number of upgrade systems. Gun upgrades, Suit upgrades and equip-able Runes give you plenty of space to customise your abilities to your preferred play-style. There are then also challenges that encourage you to play in certain ways that keep the basic combat interesting.

It simply gives you lots of toys to play with and meaningful reasons to use them.

There's a story, but I honestly never listened to it. The game throws you in, sends you through one room to the next and asks you to kill lots of things in quick succession. New weapons and abilities are nicely paced so that you always feel like the combat is fresh. Shooting demons to low health forces them to enter a stunned mode, enabling you to move in for a flashy-kill animation and a reward of health and bullets. Chaining these together, whilst dodging a number of varied enemy-types is how you'll succeed, all the while switching your weapons to match the situation in hand.

The game looks and sounds fantastic across the board - from it's level design, weapons, soundtrack, animations and menus. Doom is brutally violent and it wears it with pride.. every kill feels satisfying and impactful withy chunky weapon sounds and explosions of blood and body-parts.

Doom's campaign is long enough to feel fulfilling, but fun enough to be replay-able. There's a fun multiplayer mode here for some old-school action (again cleverly modernised with a fairly decent visual customisation options) and Snap Map, a mode that features robust level-editing tools for creating and sharing single and multiplayer levels alike. It's actually quite an impressive mode that should give the game a lot of replay-ability and variety.

And that's all you really need to know. Doom is really really fun. You could play it because you're bored of modern shooters being so predictable or because you miss how fun old games used to be... but overall you should play it because it's just a really great video game.

A decent ball that's a little on the bouncy side. Absolutely fine for a casual ball or lightly competitive games, but it feels a bit too cheap to play at higher levels.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Perfectly fine and easy to use, these heat up quickly and get the job done. They have a digital display and come with a heatproof pouch. The wet to straight feature certainly saves some time, but I'd recommend at least a firm towel dry beforehand.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... slick and efficient piece of kit that both looks good and works well, 9 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A slick and efficient piece of kit that both looks good and works well. I was impressed at how simple it was to use and the difference it made to a dark and dingy basement. Granted I've only ever used a few of these in my time, so it's hard to compare it's price to it's worth, but you definitely feel like you're getting a quality product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overgrill., 7 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've had a few George Foreman grills now and this is undoubtedly the best functioning, most flexible and best looking. However it's also triple the price of some of it's lesser brothers that still cook your food the same way. It's also, generally, a non-essential product for your kitchen that you will want to avoid putting in the cupboard in case you forget about it.

Simply put, if you have the money and desire for a fancy grill then this is fantastic. If you just want a grill then save yourself some money and spend the rest on steak.
