Re: A new decade a new phase: 20's

I'm going to hold off until hearing their next full-length album before making any big calls on the 2020's.

I'd be happy with Bulldog's prediction, but Agenda has dinted my optimism. It's one thing to no longer be the Zeitgeist, but another to be drifting in the opposite direction.

Retro. :)

Thanks everyone! I think it's great how we're able to help each other in this (aptly titled) Pet Shop Boys Community.

Re: Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

Greetings, My misadventures with Digital Stores have just had a happy and unexpected turn! It looks like my parcel will be re-dispatched after all! Special thanks to Zazzoo and goughsjd for sharing their experiences, which helped me to navigate the rigid protocols and roadblocks of their Customer "S...

Re: Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

Greetings Andie, Thanks. You're right, although interestingly the earlier Annually actually did FINALLY turn up! Doesn't sound like that will be the case this year. I have consoled myself by putting some of the refund to the Morales 12" promo of Seriously?, which to be honest, I think I'll enjoy mor...

Greetings, Well, that's it. I ordered Annually, paid for Annually, but I'm never going to own it... Hi Paul, Thank you for your message. As your order was shipped standard we regrettably do not have details on why your order was returned back to us by the carrier. Unfortunately we are currently out ...

Re: Why vinyl? My first PSB-CD

I think my first Pet Shop Boys CD was the Streets / Seriously? 4 track. I had been reluctant to go to CD, because I was just a kid and didn't have my own CD player at the time, but I'd heard the "full version" of Streets on the radio, and couldn't let go of the chance to get it, since it wasn't on t...

Re: Re-evaluating Agenda One Month Later

Greetings, Still not a fan. Musically, Social Media is alright, but I prefer when they tackle internet communications from a more seedy perspective (e.g. Gin And Jag, Get It Online) rather than from a pretentious/elitist perspective. Forgotten Child is alright, but feels half finished, and stands ou...

Re: Anyone in North America received their Annually 2019 and Agenda EP yet?

Greetings,

Still waiting, here in Australia (but since I'm not ultra enthused about this release, the wait is OK)

Re: Why is Agenda on CD not sold separately?

Greetings,

Well there you go... they bundled the CD (i.e. the premium format) with the book, so you'd have to buy the book.

Marketing genius, case closed.

Re: Original track listing for “Disco One” from EMI America

Greetings, I don't know if anyone remembers the old MUSE music catalog from back in the 1980s, but I distinctly remember that old industry catalog's entry for the "Disco" album instead used the title "Disco One" so the press release is most likely legitimate. Now that you mention it, I remember this...

Re: Sky forum

The only online PSB thing I remember from those days was a mailing list that I think was called Introspective.

I remember reading it around the time Bilingual was due to come out.

Re: Final results of poll on overall early impression of "Agenda"

Thanks Wayne. Shame about the lack of comments. Perhaps you could put in a "disclaimer" or "Terms Of Service", such as like a forum such as this would have, to make it clear the words of each poster are their own, and it is their responsibility to ensure that their actions accord with the law etc. R...
