Does Berlin have an underground?
Nope, the millions of people living in the little village of Berlin are still moving around in horse-drawn carriages.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

This is either a particularly depressing rework of the Paninaro lyric or someone expecting a pop group to recapture their youth for them. You’ve changed; we’ve all changed. I disagree that their output isn’t as creative or ambitious, or that they no longer embody pop values. Their output from any g...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

PS I wish they'd install some proper merch instead which, for a band that artistic (in their past), has been crap almost all of the time.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I hope the new album will be available on cassette too! Why? I'm very curious about cassettes. I understand vinyl, but what is the attraction of tapes? I never really loved them at the time. Because there's been an indie hype around cassettes for quite a while now. I don't think PSB will jump on th...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Can`t wait for the concerts.These big arenas,all will sold out-great. What do you think,we had Inner Sanctum as opener at last,before that Axis -now we have the Greatest Hits Tour,which hit we can expect as opener?Very difficult,in my opinion. PSB don't sell out the big ones. There's parts in these...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I've been to every PSB tour since Release and frankly I can tell that I've had enough of It's a sin, Go West, West End girls etc. being played live. It's totally natural that these will be played but it's not what I'm going for these days. If at all I'm going for songs like I get excited or Do I hav...

Re: Memories of PSB live in 2002

It's been the first ever PSB tour I went to after becoming a Fan in 1999 at the age of 12. I remember being totally puzzled when the guitarists and the percussionist entered the stage. I expected wigs, dancer, and, well, a 'show' rather than a 'concert'. Having attended every PSB tour ever since, in...

Re: New Album Cover..?

Reminds me of Richter/Saville. Ace.

If this was a hologram artwork, it would be even more ace! 8)

Finally some interesting artwork after years and years of white backgrounds with geometric figures.

Re: Weak production

I've got some friends who work as musician or producer and all of them say that the mixing and production of Dreamland is at least questionable. They conform what I as a casual listener think when I listen to the latest PSB single: It sounds distressed and wrecks my nerve. Apart from Agenda being a ...

Re: Keeping An Open Mind on An Open Mind

Well, as we've been told Dreamland is a standout track in terms of sound and mood regarding the forthcoming record. So if An open mind was that different too I don't get why Dreamland is included on the new album whereas 'mind' is not. However, no matter what the new collection of tracks may sound l...

Re: September single...???

Sure, it's a pleasent surprise to have a new PSB single out now. Also, I value the fact to have another feature track in the canon. I usually really like these. I've listened to Dreamland a couple of times now and I wouldn't call it a worse pop song. However, I do think that it sounds very generic i...

Re: Of course it might just be me........

Electric was chunk and funk delish. Super was bland and sawed off at the edges. I've been watching the new Blu-Ray. People complain about the sound, but I think that's just how the tracks were this time. They "Super-fied" the past hits, and it comes off sounding thin and dull. Still a few decent on...

Re: Of course it might just be me........

please god let there be a change of direction and let it be produced in a more gentle way. let the sound be minimal electro/dark or at least cool electro and plsss let there be possibly one 'cool!' collabo, e.g. hot chip vs. PSB. pls let it be relevant after all. it's gotton so boring lately... and ...
