Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

Ok, let's admit it then, that "Wedding in Berlin" is autobiographical! :roll:

No, I don't believe it for a minute.

Re: Robert Smith from The Cure isn't a Neil Tennant fan

Well, I'm still a Cure and PSB fan whatever they say about each other! :clap: I used to be a big fan of Roxette and Belinda Carlisle but I stopped listening to them in mid-90s. Roxette's main vocalist (Marie, RIP, a very talented woman who left us too early) and Belinda also hated the Boys. I don't ...

Re: A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

Jeez, this was the hardest quiz I've ever come across! I wasn't certain of one single question. Most of them I didn't have a clue.
I filled in answers for each question anyway!

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

I really want to hear the Laundrette music! It's not on Spotify etc yet. Search “My beautiful laundrette” on YouTube and you’ll find the tracks uploaded by chibb73. The track My beautiful laundrette is my favourite. Yes, I have listened to all the tracks now. Don't know if I need the CD to be hones...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Has it been said when this album will be released on streaming services like Spotify etc? The previous Annually CDs have been digitally available, so I expect this one to be as well!

Re: OMD - Pandora's Box (It's a Long, Long Way)

Most notably the spoken middle bit is very similar to the spoken middle bit in Domino dancing. (I love Pandora's box, btw.)

Re: Annually is available to pre order

I was hoping there would be a cd release with this for MUSIK I am super happy they chose "My Beautiful Laundrette" instead because it is not available in studio quality anywhere. Musik was released digitally which is way better than nothing. Are these songs the cast versions or do they fe...

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

I would say Nightlife, especially when it comes to the overall theme and mood of the album. Production wise it comes, of course, closer to the previous two albums. I am tired of the Stuart Price sound, so I'm thankful they are finished with him!

Re: Hotspot ratings

I've upgraded from 5 to 6, but I can't go any further. I find Hotspot to be the worst of the Price Trilogy. The production is a mess and it just doesn't sound good. The ballads are the best songs. "Wedding in Berlin" is a really bad way to finish the album; the magnicifent "Burning th...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

By the way, before this new album Nightlife was my least favourite PSB album, but I'm not sure now... Hotspot is definitely at the bottom! I'm not just into their "nightclub" stuff.

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

My reaction to this was very much like my initial reaction to Behaviour. Not as much banging and stomping tracks. Its not Electric, no is is Super. Not much banging? Well, on Behaviour there is "So hard" and that's it. On Hotspot you get at least five of them. Behaviour is my personal fav...
