Nobody else here appreciate the lost child? Certainly not a hit, but very moving and well constructed.
Ok, what I like:

- On Social Media
- The Forgotten Child
- Soup
- An Open Mind

I made up an E.P. of "E.p.s". And yes I like Soup, you've seen it correctly.

Dreamland is OK btw.

Anybody researched/gave a listen to this Jacques Renault guy? Hopefully his remix will be more in the Tom Demac, rather than Kornel Kovacs vein.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

When I'll go back home to my gear I'll try to find out differences and similarities about all this stuff.
I have to discover what's wrong in my head.
I still prefer Undertow by the way and to my ears even the bassline in Jump is the same as West End girls.

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

I had a dream last night and the album was called Cloud and the cover was predominately brilliant white with an illustration/outline of a cloud in the centre, similar to the sticky signs they used to use on TV weather forecasts. The cloud had a smiley face as well. The artwork was quite interesting...

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Do you not like It’s A Sin? I bet you hate Burn then. It's A Sin came first, even if this is not the case, one can't continue repeating the same song forever. And the problem with Burn is that Stuart Price completely rip off one of the '80's major success of italo disco, not an unknown song, i.e. T...

Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

It's not exactly on a par with Alternative, is it? :-/ It would be a very weird collection, starting with an edit of Fugitive from a German-only CD single, followed by four cover versions then one original (Je ne sais quoi) then two more covers, a couple of demos and then jumping over to the x2 b-s...

A standard review. It seems to be a kind of cliché, but we'll get new music so it's ok.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Is it me or does No Boundaries sound familiar? Is it an old song being revisited? Great news regarding the Dreamland formats. You are not alone, I had the same deja vù feeling. It remembers something that was in a PSB list of titles, unreleased songs on literally or online. Maybe we are wrong, but ...

Re: Ausfahrt = EXIT

The song is about Brexit and the word Ausfahrt is because it's the Berlin metro. i think the boys wouldn't have a problem saying so if it was their last work The song is about refugees, it seems. Neil explained that in the preconcert interview. Yes, it is what he's got on his mind. I heard it too, ...
