I want to say first that I wish that I would have known Lucinda's music from let say her first or second album. And I say that because it is nice when you go through changes with the artists if you happen to relate to the text and so on. For exemples I have known Neil young pretty much since his debuts, and I happen to name Neil because I find that Lucinda keep on reminding me a certain side of Neil Young, not the Neil like from the gold rush but the Neil as in Zooma, you see, the very slow but very, a lot of passion in the electric guitar and between the text, the vocal, she is not afraid to kind of let herself go freely with that sound of guitar that I love so much, and let say she has a good rip, she is not afraid to repete the good sound 2, even 5 times to kind of give you a brake of the vocal, not too many do that anymore, they would not be play pon the radio I guess and since I am afraid that they have to make money too, so I don't blame them all together to give in to the way it is these days. but lucky for us singer song writer like Lucinda don't seem to care and she does her trip and it is lovely. As I was saying, the sad part for me is let say I have through a friend listen to the album west, that was my first one I bought and I have been purchasing the one that went after and it wasw nice to see the artist changing going this way, that way, sometime kind of rock trash when she talk about a man that is just a stoner and she had it type deal, but now you see since I am up to date I got to go in the past to get some new lucinda and I miss that joy of having growing with the music. I am guessing that a time will come just like a puzzle, I will have most of her album and than I will be able to listen them in a row by years and see or have an idea of what was her trip all about. she is just fantastic, her voice is raw, it is what it is and no sorry about it. the reason I gave this one a four star is because it could have use a couple of more country rock, the way she knows how to do it so that it is not so quiet all the way through. but don't get me wrong, this is a great album I wonder if I am the only one that can not help of thinking about that guitar sound of Neil, it seem that there is a connextion there, is it just a accident or not? I don't know. I have quiet a few now and for me my all time favorite so far is still west and little honey is it? but every album bring something. I hope you try it. thank you

First off I must say that for a reason or another, this band never interested me. I am shy to admit it, but is it something stupid such as I didn't like the name of the band? or the marketing in general of the band, I just don't know. How ever at one time it seem that on those music show every years, for a while, red hot chili peper was the winner all the way. I thought I must give them a chance. at last I bought an album call what hits? something like this, and I was not impress at all, and I have a open mind about music. It was a mystery to me. Many years later I went to a friend and listen the double cd stadium arcadium, sorry for the spelling. I thought it was the greatest thing I listen for a long time. at last, I could see mostlightly all the great albums that I have miss when they were at their pick. Now, I was looking at the mini sleeve on amazon, right a way on the first page , I see this one, good price, never did ear about it, but I thought I would take a chance. The 2 first minutes or so, I thought I was going to be let down because it sounded a bit like rap music. And I ate that. but the music went in a different direction and I was taken back again, what a great sound! take about being creative, meaning, they don't sound like anyone else, i find the sound unique to them. It mean a lot to me. Being blind, I have no idea if it is a band with different race for lack of better word, forgive me. It does at time for sure remind me what could be mexican sound, but I don't know.
But the cd is fantastic, when I think it will be this way, it turn around and a different kind of sound arrive and at the same time you have the angle tghat yes you do know it is red hot chili peppers. so, no I was not lucky on my first one, but I am ready to bet that most of their albums are great. so, time to time I will remember to get more. but this one in many ways is even better than stadium arcadium, I love the sound of the guitar, maybe more agressive... some what more heavy in it's own way. If I had the band in the front of me I would say, sorry to have snob you for so long base on some stupid things, like they say don't judge a book by the cover.

I am very happy with this edition.

as you know I am sure by now I am a totaly blind person, and of course the reason I like a film will not be the same reason than sosoneone that can see. so, in a way, I take the time to write this in case if another blind person read this. my number one reason to enjoy a film, is if the film have enough talking for me to be able to follow it without having to ask too much questions. and I was really happy with this one, of course I miss all the visual, but I don't care about this, I was able to follow thestory line and I was please. I have only listen to a couple of pilote film and one episode. but I enjoyed it every much. I purchase video so that when winter will be here super strong, My friend and I will have some choices to watch. I know this is not much of a review. but I guess if another blind should wonder, should I get it. the answer is yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars and I am still very happy with it, Oct. 9 2014

You know, not long time ago on amazon, right here, I bought a so call reciever to make the audio system become blue tooth right? and I am still very happy with it. but I needed another one for the doc station that I have in my bedroom. Even though I can put ipods on top, not the number seven though, but you see what I mean. so I went to my order, find the idem that I bought before for so much, and the price went up a good ten dollars. I go, well, let's try around see if I could find something I like. This is really a super nice gadget. not like my other one that plug in the wall for power right? This one, I have first charge it right? and in the front of my yamaha doc station, I have a little whole for the head phone and another one for mobile, if You want to plug in a mobile mp3 player. so, the gadget comes with one regular cable, you know the one you would plug a nanno six generation in your pc. so the side of the cable that you would plug into your six nanno, on one side, you kind of take off a protecter part and bingo you plug it to your pc or other charger. I am blind so I don't know the hourse you are suppose to do it if you are in a hurray. Me, I pluged it in and went to bed. so this morning, unplug the gadget and it has that little little plug that fit in the small whole for mobile, I think if you don't have any, you could plug the other big cable in the u s b port and simply slect u s b and it would work. so me I have plug it in the mobile in the front, if you don't use it, it don't take power. if you don't feel like using it for a while, it is easy to handle, to take it out and put it where you put your small stuff like this right? and I am thinking if you want to show to a friend how nice it is, you can just put it in your pocket , bring it with you and plug it on his or her sound system and the person could judge him or heer self. I love it for that reason. of course the down side if that you do have to charge it. I have also bought 2 transmitter and you see I keep one connect to the pc and use the other one, when it goes dead, I take the one from the pc and bingo, I have no issues with this. and next month I am getting a second one for sure.My other is super nice too, but it would not be as easy to unplug it just to bring it somewhere. it is not something set up with this in mind at all, but this one is for sure. well I love it

Hello Again! I must say, I kind of feel like a fraude to talk about a film, any kind of films, even animation. Being blind, I can't say really anything about what is important for a good review. like talking about the acting, or for the animation, the quality of the graphic and so on. You get the idea, but if I don't say something, amazon will send me e mail asking me to do it for ever. I wonder if I say that it is a gift, maybe in this case I would not have to go a review. I know I got the choice, but you get mail every day right? and it don't bother me, I just feel like a fraude. How ever, I am a big fan of all cartoons, all different kind, at night I listen to teletune, the animation chanel, in the evening they have cartoons for adult, it can get pretty dirty. but it is funny. Now you know when the first one came out, I actally went to the theater to see it if you will, and if a blind person read my review, what I like about it is that you get enough information from the talking to follow the story line pretty good, oh I am sure we miss a lot, but I came out of the theater very happy, it is not the case that often. so, one day I was looking in the deal store, and I saw this one, the 2 movie on one disc for a very low price. My partner just love cartoons, so, will watch this this winter sometime. I didn't find the second one as strong but it is often the case when they try for a second one. but don't getme wrong, I love those fils so much, and I am lucky enough to have friend that after the movie, they answer my questions and so on. Try to see if y9u still can get it for 5 dollars, it may have been a deal for one day only, I don't remember. thank you

I don't know much about this person, as a young person, I was more into yes and so on, that would have been music for the rocker, the bikers type deal, in my neck of the wood anyway. but since than, I am not so snob and I listen to all kind of music. a friend introduce me to him, and I am very sorry that I was not part of the action when it actually happen. I would have love it. this is a good cd if like me you don't know the person, you will not be sorry
