Re: Ausfahrt = EXIT

Sorry, long post and sorry for mistakes and my english. This negativity is absolutely natural at this point. If you look at PSB carreer they went through all the phases that a long lasting celebrity could live. Early excitement and sudden succes. PSB as a One Hit Wonder? No way. They went through th...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Well, as my 7 years old daughter said: "It's nice". That's it. The production is standard PSB, already heard several times, the chorus is catchy and it is danceable. Quit good, the lyrics are also standard PSB, Dreamland is quite obvuoisly a person, and Homeland is going to be cheated. If we stretch...

Re: Disturbing PSB dreams

I was obsessed with a rare and secret PSB album that I didn't own. I made plenty of anxiety dreams about it. I think it came from not owning Relentless at the time, when it came out, but that dream continued a few years further even when I bought both Relentless on vinyl and Very Relentless on cd. I...

Re: AFTER THE EVENT & IN HIS IMAGINATION

I have a preference for minor key songs, so I'd go for After the Event. I'm not really keen on In His Imagination.

Re: Shorter songs - Annoying

There isn't a "3-4 minutes standard". This is the point. There is a huge difference in the structure between a 3 minutes song and a 4 minutes song, we are talking of a matter where even 20 seconds are an important thing. The standard of radio singles and pop songs has lost 1 minute during the last 2...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Am I the only one to think that Introspective was originally intended as a sort of Disco 2 for Actually?
I see some elements in common with the Please/Disco release.

Re: Final results of poll on three favorite songs of the "Behaviour era"

The survivors is in my all time top five. I literally “whooped” when they played it at the Albert Hall gig I always skipped that song until I heard it in the 2012 orchestral performance. It suddenly clicked and now it's one of the highlights of the album imo. I agree, It is a very good song, but th...

Re: The musical that just won't die ;)

One song does not an obsession make. It's not one song: it is the whole agenda EP, this new song Dreamland and in an interview/tour programme/commentary, I don't remember exactly, he eventually turned the subject of The Dictator Decides from Kim to Donald. Consider also that we are talking of a per...

Re: The musical that just won't die ;)

Neil is kinda obsessed with Trump, isn't he? I don't think this obsession could be healthy for his creative process. Agenda was a very firm political statement, both if you agree or not with his political view, but I hope we'll get some different issues on the new album: is getting a little bit bori...

Re: Which last PSB song made you feel excited (like in the old days)?

Axis and then from Super; "Burn" (and probably the whole album - I LOVE Super - I am JUST getting in to its layers - which are deep and hidden.) I have a major problem with Burn. I can't listen to it even if it is a quite good song. It is way too similar to Tom Hooker's Looking for Love, and everyt...
