2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!, Jan. 11 2014
This review is from: Son of Schmilsson (Audio CD)
After the excellent Nilsson Schmilsson, this album does nothing for me at all. The melodies are non-existant, Nilsson's voice seems dull and lackluster. I certainly had the impression the songs were just the rejects from earlier work, devoid of creativity except for the belch (At My Front Door) and gargle/spit (Most Beautiful World). Certainly a candidate for the Sally Ann store but should I listen a few more times to see if I can make myself enjoy something...? No, even his monotonous "...Little Touch...In The Night" is marginally better. Very disappointing indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made round cutters, Jan. 11 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These round cutters are well made with a nice upper curled rim which really holds the circular shape. The spot welds are tidy. I don't think most people need 12 sizes - perhaps 6 would do, but they certainly get the job done. A better product than we could find at local retailers.

An enjoyable picture with pleasing, detailed visuals. The entire floating island sequence should have been on the editing room floor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful album from yesteryear., Nov. 23 2012

This review is from: Moondance (Audio CD)
I had forgotten what an enjoyable album this is until I blundered across my worn-out vinyl copy. Now the CD is even more enjoyable without all the crackles. Needs to be played really loudly when non-believers are out of the home. Into The Mystic is electric and the least three songs finish the album beautifully. First rate stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment, Nov. 23 2012

An absolute delight to watch - every character is enjoyable. The final scenes where Seymour deals with singing Audrey II and "offspring" is excellent. This ending is just fine even though it avoids the "tragedy" category. First rate entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars GTMax HDMI 6' cable, Nov. 23 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works just as well as the $50+ cables because it is sending digital "packets" of info, not an analog signal. The story that you get from salespeople (who often know little about electronics) is that the expensive cables will prevent signal degradation. This is rubbish of course, as either the digital packets get through or they do not.
Very good value for the money - less than $4 delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second viewing better than first, Aug. 11 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I saw this series on PBS several years ago and now enjoyed it even more on this complete DVD set. The script and acting are superb with many subtleties discovered the second time. The language, social details and class system are shown in positive and negative lights. Some might say that this is a "chick flick" but it is far more. The second series (Return to Cranford) doesn't have as much meat in it as the first but continues in the same engaging style. IMO, the ending of the second series is too tidy. This is one of the best Brit series I've seen along with Dr. Findlay and To Serve Them All My Days. Top notch.

Excellent story line spanning centuries - very well acted with a satisfying bit of criminality at the end. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This review is from: That's Why I'm Here (Audio CD)
Taylor's untrained, unassuming voice is wonderful. Background voices of Joni Mitchell, Crosby etc. make this album thoroughly enjoyable. The old Everly Bros song "Everyday" may be the best track.

Can I find my love beads in the basement? This dreamy album brings back all the (supposed) gentleness and antiwar sentiment of the early 70s. The two voices are beautiful as is the overall message. The material and tone are dated of course. Where is my "It's a Beautiful Day" album?
