Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Greetings,

If there is a CD, I think it will be the Muzik EP. Just the standard issue. Neil supposedly said that it would come out on CD, but it clearly hasn't done so yet. This would tick off that box. Neil demos might be saved for a Further Listening release.

Retro. :)

Time to commence the annual cycle of:

Re: Further Listening in the future?

Greetings, I dont see them releasing a new album of new material until the pandemic is far in the rear view. I think they enjoy the dance...recording an album, releasing it and then touring. I dont see them doing another album when even if they released a new album...THAT tour would be in jeopardy j...

I stand corrected. That was indeed a good one. (I forgot that one on account of it being a remix).

Re: Future duet

Unless I'm forgetting one, they haven't done a good duet since What Have I Done To Deserve This?

Kylie - bad
Elton - bad
Robbie - meh
Example - barely a duet, more a bonus rap.
Olly - meh

This Used To Be The Future was good, but it had three vocalists rather than two.

Re: Further Listening in the future?

Greetings, It was a massive missed opportunity to not pad about the first 6 further listening CDs. It makes no sense that the first batch only have one bonus disc and then Nightlife, Release and Yes have two bonus discs. Neil made the point that they became more prolific at this point and that there...

Re: No more LAYERS please!

Greetings Telys, I hear what you're saying, and the album mix of Dreamland is a good example of "more is less" in terms of tossing everything in at once, and giving no real sense of light and shade, but Pet Shop Boys do still do many pared back arrangements. I suspect (and tell me if I'm w...

Re: PSB and their successful album charts results in the 80's in Mexico, Brazil and South Africa

What on earth is this, and why is there an "Owners" column?

Is this some aggregation of who in that country claims to own which albums according to some site? Hardly seems like a "chart" then, does it?...

Come on Nickname. :roll:

Eh, Goldfrapp were doing that over a decade ago.

I'd rather them make music that excites them, rather than "reinvent" themselves by emulating others.

Re: funko Pops

I don't mind them but I find it very off-putting that Chris looks so alert, and that Neil looks so non-plussed... Obviously it should be the other way around.
