Re: Back catalogue countdown to Hotspot

Agreed on the quality of Yes. It's a worthy "pop" successor to Very. If we receive another in that vein, we'll be blessed.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Re: Hotspot reviews

Greetings, Interestingly, you could have written the above review without even hearing the album. Quite possibly they didn't bother. Maybe not so much about bothering....

"Full Intention" being the name of the artist, not to be confused with something like the "Full Story" remix of The Pop Kids.
