Review of Ultimate Girls Night In - Various Artists by xd-o-n-z-x

Advantages: songs I like, good mixture
Disadvantages: songs I dislike

I spotted this CD in a charity shop for £1.95 and liked the sound of it so decided to give it a go. The album is a double CD featuring 40 songs by various artists. I liked the idea of a ‘girls night in’ CD and so decided to buy it. The album is currently ... Read review

An original and innovative album that has stood the test of time.
Review of Hergest Ridge - Mike Oldfield by Nymphypig

Advantages: Brilliantly innovative album - 40 minutes of quality music
Disadvantages: Not for you if you don't like instrumentals

It's fair to say that when it comes to music, my tastes have been very heavily influenced by my dad. I was always more of a bookworm, so didn't get round to buying anything on which I could play music of my own choice until long after I'd become independe ... Read review

Good review! by AliceBond
Everybody thinks of Tubular Bells but Oldfield has made so much good music since. Hergest Ridge was widely considered the poor man's Tubular Bells, but it has its merits. by mikemelmak

Review of Very Best of Mrs. Mills - Mrs. Mills by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Lot of tracks on the album and all classics to sing along to
Disadvantages: None

I'm sure people will think my music tastes are getting stranger and stranger with the weird and wonderful CD reviews I'm producing, and here's another one to add to the collection. For those who have never heard of Mrs Mills, she was an English pianist w ... Read review

Disadvantages: None.

This 2011 release by Alfie Boe is the tenor's fifth album. Boe is an actor and singer who first came to my attention when I saw him perform as Jean Valjean in the amazing musical 'Les Miserables'. This album contains fifteen tracks from stage and screen. ... Read review

A bizarrely awful collection of synthesized cover versions
Review of Popcorn - Hot Butter by CelticSoulSister

Advantages: Popcorn (well, sort of)
Disadvantages: Truly terrible, embarrassing tripe!

PLEASE NOTE: Ciao's Specific Criteria section won't let me choose 'not applicable' under the lyrics section. This album is entirely instrumental and due to this Ciao glitch, I've had to opt for the closest I'm allowed to, which is 'Dire', yet is false as ... Read review

Let your fingers do the talking.
Review of Best of Winifred Atwell - Winifred Atwell by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Great songs, lots of upbeat fast tracks to dance along to.
Disadvantages: Couple of tracks I'm not keen on, but that's just personal choice.

You'll soon get to realise with some of my music reviews that I have quite an eclectic taste when it comes to my CD collection. I do prefer the older stuff. Well, anything from the 80's backwards really. And one such CD in my collection is Winifred Atw ... Read review

Review of Singalong Years, The - Max Bygraves by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Lots of great tunes to sing along to.
Disadvantages: None.

When it comes to music, there's not really much of the modern stuff I like. With the likes of progammes like The X-Factor which has practically killed the music industry, you don't often see bands and singers lasting like they used to. I do, I confess, ... Read review

Disadvantages: Price; Availability; Slightly dated; no Carpenters or John Lennon/Beatles.

Review of QE2 - Mike Oldfield by euphie

Advantages: Some fantastic tracks
Disadvantages: Few weaker tracks

This was my favourite record as a child. My dad had the LP and I used to listen to some of the tracks, mainly the instrumental ones as my dad said some of the others were a bit rubbish!. A few years ago, I bought the mp3 version of this album to see if ... Read review

Needs more detail and opinion here. I am left knowing not a lot after reading your review. How much is it to buy? How long does it play for? What are the names of some of the songs? Other than chilled out, what more can you tell me about it? by cha97michelle
