Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

My only quibble with Hotspot is the sequencing of "You are the one" after "Will-o-the-wisp". On first listen it was just a massive let down. Wedding in Berlin is a great closing track. I really like it. I agree @ 98%. YATO should be track 3 or 4. WIB is a good & funny closin...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

It's a Pet Shop Boys album, so by definition it is great. Thematically, it's very coherent, but it subsides a bit towards the end for me. It shares a lot in common with Super. One was about getting out of your head, the other about just getting out. Funnily enough, while I think Electric is one of ...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

I always get the sense, that, whatever their initial intentions when the recording process for a new album starts, their instincts kick in, softening the edges of whatever the 'manifesto' for an album was, usually for the better. Hence if you 'love' one PSB album, you're likely to at least 'enjoy' ...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

Hate to burst your bubble, but Elysium doesn't reflect LA at all (I've lived here for 27 years after leaving the UK). What it does reflect is a bland, homogenous production that permeates through a lot of middle of the road American music. When I first heard of an L.A. album back to those days, I d...

This is exactly the first thing that came to my mind.
To be honest it is also the first thing I'd do if I were them.

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Although to me it doesn't feel as long as it obviously has been, I've clearly been on the rollercoaster a long, long time. I don't think PSB really put a foot wrong prior to and including 'Behaviour'. 'Behaviour' marked the peak for me. It was grown up electronic music and as I have said before, it...

It seems Undertow to me, but it is no b-side or unreleased, so it couldn't be.

Re: Next single? (Will there be one?)

I see Introspective as a stand-alone fantastic album, with close to 5 million sales , their best selling album, and not some outcast from Actually, as much as I love that album, and I know Neil and Chris feel the same, because they have said so. But each to their own. You are right: It was released...

Re: Next single? (Will there be one?)

Definitely up for Introspective 2 - but it has to be 6 new songs! All in extended dance form, big productions etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Introspective was everything but 6 new songs: only Devices and Domino Dancing were new. We had1 cover and 3 already released songs in different ways. ...

Re: PSB vinyl art

Go West is the best one.
Libération is beautiful, but I would have preferred a version with Neil on one side and Chris on the other.
There are no connecting rotation lines, only two point to match: top head and neck/throat
