Re: Happy people

Is this an appreciation thread? Otherwise I'd like to express my point of view. Here I go: there only two tracks that I don't like on this album, You Are the One and Happy People. You are the One is absolutely not my cup of tea. Happy People has some good elements: house piano, bouncing bassline, ni...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Full day of listens. This is my review based on my personal taste: The best track is absolutely by far Hoping for a Miracle. I dare to say one of the best of the Trilogy. I love the way It is followed by I Don't Wanna. This is the best part of a good record. Price also this time made a mess out of N...

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

It is very funny, especially at the end when the situation goes absolutely out of control. But I do agree that the dance routines in front of the camera are some kind of a cliché of several music videos.

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

Come on Petheads, all this arguing is close to pathetic! I don't think that don't liking Drags makes you homophobic since bere we're all fans of a couple of gay men. On the other side everybody seem to overreact to everything that doesn't encunter his personal, own and egoistic taste. This is the vi...

Re: Growing up and growing old with the Pet Shop Boys

I'm aware you have probably all read my blog - letter to pet shop boys - and how I grew up with them: https://lifeassistanceagency.com/2016/01/21/a-letter-to-west-end-girls/ And loved your Growing up and growing old with the Pet Shop Boys. If I stop and think about it I realize that their music is ...

Re: Growing up and growing old with the Pet Shop Boys

I find it interesting that my two sons aged 12 and 14 are now finding their own tastes in music - yes, I have subjugated them many many times to the entire PSB catalogue over the years while they were growing up so my duties as a good parent can’t be questioned [emoji28] ... I do wonder though if t...

Re: Growing up and growing old with the Pet Shop Boys

It is a really wonderful story, so ordinary but at the same time special: our lives are our stories, and every life is unique. I can relate to it at 100%, and for me is probably even stronger the relationship between me growing up and the PSB's career since I'm only a little bit older than the revie...

Some reviews came from PSB Community members.
Ok, I was only being sarcastic about some professional reviewers who doesn't really bother.

I'm sure that Will-o-the-wisp will be one of the best tracks on the album, as I trust more the PSB fans who gave us juicy and genuine details about Hotspot.

Re: Hotspot reviews

Will-o-the-wisp is always a reference in all the reviews. Best song for this review too. Accordingly to the quality of these reviews, I start to think that reviewers listen only to the first track. "Uhm, yeah I like it. 3.5 stars, let's write something general about this disc, oh wait where's that ...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I don’t think they’ve ever used the word Princess in a song title. They should have done a song called Princess. Or Bazaar. Or Callisthenics. Nonsense. Princess and Bazaar are better as album titles than song titles :wink: ... but Princess and Bazaar together makes a great song title! :dance:

Re: Do you think the 2 first albums of the triology have any real contender of the PSB classics?.

I think you are talking from the perspective of a harcore fan. Well, we all are. That's why we're here ;) But thanks for reminding me! Hint: If you want to avoid the perspectives of PSB fans, you might try not asking them by creating a poll in a "hardcore fan forum", right? Hint2: I think many peop...

Re: Do you think the 2 first albums of the triology have any real contender of the PSB classics?.

I think this one is a good question for a poll, although some people can hate them. Remember the classics from the 80's, the 90's, some songs from Fundamental (TSAGS, Integral), some other from Yes (Love etc, AOTW) but after that, I don't see any song you can think there is a new classic on it, I m...

I thought of suicide too. It is the logic conclusion.
