Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Greetings,

It's a bit disappointing it's not yet on the JB Hi-Fi website here in Australia. That's where I got the equivalent Inner Sanctum release from. Might need to start looking around for alternative distributors.

Someone (thank you) has since updated the topic title... so whilst it's still a daft title, at least it's no longer misleading.

Still WAY to dark!
Agreed, and both the staging and the song itself seem a bit flat. It could have been better as a medley, perhaps.

That can just as easily be done on a real Electronic topic in the Off-Topic section, can it not?

Greetings,

With April Fools Day well in the rear-view mirror now, can this topic please be closed now?

Last week's "joke" is this week's "fake news".

Greetings, Well then, that 80-90% can take the vaccine then, and they can receive the physical benefits (or other effects, as the case may be) associated with it. I don't know anyone who is truly anti-vax, per se, but I do believe there are legitimate concerns about the drastic erosion of civil libe...

Re: PSB - Vaccination

Greetings, If you're comfortable with technocratic totalitarianism, that's all fine and dandy... but not everyone is, and these aren't the sorts of issues the public get to vote on either, so it's not even really democratic. I can appreciate why there's a lot of consternation about it, across the bo...

Re: PSB - Vaccination

Re: Nightlife Tour vs Super Tour

Greetings,

It seems like Stuart Price is keen on the mashups so you're more likely to have gotten some kind of medley arrangement. I don't really have any thoughts on whether it would have been any good though.

I'd say no. If the font were less arty-farty I might reconsider that opinion.

Re: Top Three Sleeve Artwork

Greetings, Great topic. For mine... Very Relentless - functionally it was a bit annoying, but as a physical piece housing the booklet and two cardsleeve CDs, rather than just an image... it was amazing, and greater than the sum of its individual parts. Much like the albums themselves, it was both an...
