2.0 out of 5 stars Would be great if not for the awful zipper, December 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very nice outdoor coat for the price - blocks wind and water very well, comfy and fits me perfectly, quite sturdy and warm for being relatively "thin" (it's about the material not the lining or thickness with these of course).

Cons are the zipper - fell off completely after a couple of months of light/regular use - which is pathetic. It's also made for left-handed people on top of that, which is a real pain.

Also the side pockets are small and need to be zipped-up, or things will fall out quietly and unnoticed at times.

I won't be buying another due to the major flaw in the zipper design, which is unfortunate. I'd save your $$ and buy something of higher quality ultimately. I have not contacted the manufacturer yet about the zipper falling off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easily their worst release to-date, December 9, 2014
This review is from: Berkeley to Bakersfield (Audio CD)
Loved their last album and generally find something to like in all of their releases over the years. However, this "double" album is painful to listen to. No need to be overly critical of a great band with a lot of talent and heart, but hey, unlike every other Cracker fan on the internet, I'm not afraid to call it like it is - this one is boooring.

I wish them well, but I won't be purchasing this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the size, November 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great value for the size, goes on well and easily, only complaint is the smell, it is too strong when applied, it doesn't bother me, but does bother my wife, so it's something to consider.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfy, Great Price, As Expected, November 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:

Cool color, fits well and isn't bulky or goofy, well-made for the price

Cons:

It's super comfortable, but is thin (comparable to l/s dress shirt)

Summary:

Great if you're looking for something to stay comfy in around the house or office in the winter, or as a layer if a thin hood will do in 40-50 degree weather, or as a warm-up or exercise/sport layer. Breathes well and washes easily with little effect on its shape or constitution.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Much Better than the First Film..., November 28, 2014
Excellent, epic film that manages to actually do a great job of using technology to actually push film art forward, instead of sideways or backwards. You could throw everything else out, and it is still worth seeing for the (mostly) amazing ability the advanced CGI and blending/production work. The cinematography and writing are all very good as well, extremely well-produced and written on the whole for a big theater film.

There are some overly drawn out scenes that would've better without the "feel good" sappiness milked for too long, and the pace is too fast on the other end of things, possibly as a result of forced editing. But the incredible tension throughout the story the film does a great job of conveying, the completely awesome action sequences, and the unpredictable nature of the events at times, make it completely worthwhile.

It really takes you back to the classic epic sci-fi and action movies of the 70's and 80's, where you felt yourself pulled emotionally towards the main characters, rooting for one group or another, and sitting-up during the tense sequences. You care about Caesar, his family/friends, and the depictions of the apes in their environments and communicating with each other etc..., are completely amazing to watch, as it's something you'd never experienced before in film history, in this way or to this degree.

Final note: The "CGI" used, is still not perfect of course, it's just really, really well done, and despite the bad name CGI is getting over the years, Dawn proves there's an amazing future for virtual reality in film when it is done right, and also incredibly powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best episodes (The Queen Mary), October 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great episode (Season 12 - Queen Mary) . They caught more good, clear evidence than anyone I've seen do so there. Zak is toned-down and more likeable/tolerable, although still himself, and they have learned to recognize and look for "capturing" things using interesting devices, always pushing the envelope.

Easily one of their top 5 episodes, and it's free here on Amazon! (Prime I assume)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good album..., May 23, 2014
This review is from: Revelation (MP3 Music)
I do like Revelation more so than Aufheben, but it's probably not as consistent and wears out fast. Anton doesn't help himself by putting out demos way ahead of the release, by the time the album comes out, you're already over it and have it committed to the larger shuffle rotation of your library.

The album is worth it based on "What You Isn't," "Food For Clouds," "Nightbird," "Xibalba," and "Memory Camp." They are sort of throw-back tracks with...guitars and melodies!!! There's also some modest new creative approaches to old formulas. I really like all of those tracks, they are definitely some of the best music Anton/BJM have released in years.

Tracks such as "Duck and Cover," "Second Sighting," "Fist Full of Bees," "Uknown," "Goodbye Butterfly," and "Vad Hande Med Dem?" sound like leftovers from Aufbehen...repetitive, looping fare that are all fine and good, but come-off as filler demo material and none of them are anything notable or memorable, and weren't meant to be...but they make for average, hum drum stuff at this point.

I cannot listen to "Memorymix," it might be the worst BJM song I've ever heard next to the painfully annoying "If I Love You" (and its 3 versions in a row on the album to fill up space).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It, May 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a guy in his mid-40's, the results aren't "dramatic" but the noticeably thicker scalp hair and urination/bladder/prostate function benefits are the real deal...especially when stacked with or taken in combination with other green supplements (i.e. green/superfood shakes, burdock root, green tea extract, vitamin d-3).

This particular brand and deal (dosage + # of capsules) are a great deal and Nature's Way produces a high quality product (I also take their Burdock Root with this).

5.0 out of 5 stars Always top notch stuff from Amazing Grass, May 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I decided to rotate my morning green shakes with this Barley, Wheat and Alfalfa blend, as I tend to use a different AG variety every month to supplement my diet with. This blend seems to help with digestion and "regularity" as well as having a cleansing effect.

I'll be honest, while the taste is fairly neutral, mixing it with plain coconut milk, it tastes like a mouthful of grass would. Adding a piece of fruit or any sort of flavored powder or milk would make it more pleasant.

But I don't drink these for the taste, I woof it down like Rocky drinking two raw eggs in the morning - the noticeable health benefits are fantastic, and the ingredients are very "active" (you can see the spores/growth clinging to the plastic scoop).

I keep it in the fridge and put it in a Nutri-Bullet every morning with some coconut mlk (low fat version). It also does a decent job suppressing hunger for a few hours.

I find the positive mental and physical energy boosts from this over time to be invaluable for someone in his mid-40's (along with other smart supplementation throughout the day).

4.0 out of 5 stars New Youngteam, May 17, 2014
This review is from: Fading Into Night (MP3 Music)
You don't hear much about Youngteam in the states, despite the fact they are absolutely one of the better psych/shoegaze bands still making new music today. Maybe it's because of their Scandinavian region home base, and complete lack of western touring/appearances, not sure.

Fading Into Night is a more subdued album compared to their previous release (the amazing Daydreamer), and has more of a plodding, relaxing feel as a whole, maybe too much so on a couple of tracks, leading to some tedium at times.

But stand outs like "It's Getting Dark," "Dugpas," "1974," "Black Rider" and "Into Light" save it entirely and make it a must-have for even casual fans. The last 3 tracks tail-off a bit into some of that tedium, but are entirely enjoyable if you're in the right mood and setting.

Everything this band has done has been great, it's refreshing and a throw-back to the late 80's and early 90's British shoegaze scene, but as with any worthwhile genre music, stands on its own, generally speaking.

They are still a bit dark and gloomy, if not strange or a bit macabre at times (see their official videos, almost unwatchable), and may be best to focus on guitar-driven songs and hooks instead of lumbering vocal pieces you find too much of on tracks 7-9 (which have their moments). You'll need to look up their lyrics to even understand what's being said - it's that melody focused. They're at their best when they're harmonizing and playing instrumental blocks. There's lots of "ah-ahhing" that you find in a band like "Ride" for instance here, who they seem to be influenced by quite a bit...and again are where they shine.

Finally, their over-all tone/sound is very good, but it would be interesting to hear them experiment with differents types of good guitar tones and effects, and in general get a little more creative and dynamic. All of the talent in the world is there.
