Re: Hotspot ratings

It’s an easy 9 for me. It gripped me straight away and never let go. In my top 5 albums

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

After repeated listens it’s still my favourite song and that’s some achievement as there is plenty of competition on the album.

Yes it doesn’t seem the same without his insightful commentary. Like all of you I do hope all is well with him.

No even though it was mentioned on the PSB Facebook page there was no mention anywhere else about it and they definitely weren’t on!

Re: Anyone else not heard the new album yet?

I'm doing something slightly odd for Hotspot. I was ill too when the album arrived and couldn't face listening to it immediately... and then I had an interesting idea. There are some records in my collection that I got to know as instrumentals first, and then heard the versions with vocals later......

Re: An Open Mind should be on the album

Once again, nickname, the correct word in English is ‘opinion’ rather than ‘fact’. But I'm sure most of fans and members of this forum think the same. It's a really good track and it'd have matched quite good on the album. Only this song would have made the album better. To be honest on the first c...

Re: Open Mind should be on the album

It’s a great track but would need re-recording to fit in production style wise. Try inserting it in to the album track list to see what I mean. I’ve tried it and it just sounded wrong

Re: Hotspot reviews

I noticed that it said (the article, not them) that they might play some songs from Hotspot on the tour. I really hope so, a 4-5 song detour from the hits at a point in the show to show off the new songs would be good. Be a shame to put out such a great album and then not play it live. Great articl...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

Ii think it's absolutely brilliant Id rank in my Top 5 easily although they are forever changing Electric /introspective/Actually / Hotspot /Fundamental It’s great that 2 of their last 3 albums rank in your top 5! It shows they still have it. I would have the same top 5 other than replacing fundame...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

I absolutely love this song. The sweeping synths along with Neils vocal’s gives me goosebumps. It really is beautiful
