4.0 out of 5 stars Mad but Quirky Too!, April 15 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes it was raw and rough but still a darn good classic... it must have been a nightmare to arrange on short notice and hardly enough time to rehearse... but that was typically then (the 70's) - so it is not well polished- who cares, it is history. Yes, there were flaws and hardly surprising by the disposition of those rockers.

The artists, their styles and moments of just plain perfection - the right song with the right tapestry of vocals... I get it, critics’ maybe not- they look for something else, I guess. All said though I doubt it will appeal to anyone outside that decade. You gotta be old to appreciate it... that's me, and it is a blast to hear it all over again..

Rock on!

It was interesting to read, an interesting account- only of value to certain Butler families though... I think there are five different main streams socially attached... not necessarily DNA genetically attached...

I got this for my grandson who loves Lego to bits! Many Lego packages are great but they have tiny parts and often difficult to hold steady while building or even playing with. This platform is the perfect answer. It is expensive but critical to builders- guess that is why it is so expensive for what it is.. take note Lego; it should be cheaper to buy, and that way be more accessible for boys and girls - it is integral to good play time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Metal- mobile!, April 14 2014

It was an interesting collection of period reviews of the Galaxy & LTD... I learnt a lot, but the book could use more colour- it was a bit drab and hardly consistent with the cars lustre of bright work and colours.. the black and white pictures were just not that clear/crisp- almost a newspaper feel without true definition. So I was disappointed in the book... and I felt that there cold have been more of a story line... just to give the cars more life and a sense of their contribution to North American culture and automotive history.. it was not that bad, but not that good either- a $10.00 book based on my own appraisal of value for money criteria..

This review is from: Awake (Audio CD)
His confidence as a person comes through in the song choices and style of singing... it is hard to ignore this big talent... it is different yet the same as his peers - somehow though he makes every note ad lyrical emphasis richer and better... a music powerhouse- he is undeniably great. Near perfect- he is as near as you can be, the Complete Vocal Technician.

This is my favorite album... but in reality it is all a matter of taste.

I am biased when it comes to their music- it is great artistry and I think songs from this CD in particular will become timeless classics... thought provoking lyrics, contemporary style music and in the pocket vocals. Coldplay employs sophisticated musical arrangements that have cross-generation appeal.

I really like this set of tracks and am pleased with the engineering on the CD... no complaints. Not perfect compilation, but darn near.

3.0 out of 5 stars Songs from Bygone era in music, April 14 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ok- seems sound quality is not as I remember it, but has the feel of it. There is slight but perceptual disconnect from the original version on a couple of the songs. And, I do not know why but spoils the other songs in the process because I am sensitive to that flaw and sublimely, at least, being a bit picky when listening to all the tracks. But I recommend buying it anyway- it is a good collection of songs.

Probably his best work and sets the stage of other similar movies like Death Wish series. He shows a non-type cast aspect to his acting and essentially it seems less is more in this film compared to his other action ones. Lots of drama, good acting and captivating plot line.
