Re: Being Boring At 30

Being Boring is art. By this point, they had mastered the trick of producing superior throwaway pop music designed for maximum commercial impact. Being Boring flopped as a single because it wasn’t remotely throwaway. It was still superior (and how), but it was art. The fact that they were surprised...

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Obviously there’s no obligation to buy PSB releases but it’s somewhat ironic that even in the age of free music online, one of the few site admins has not even heard the latest album from the artist the site is dedicated to! Steve - Hotspot is not one of my favourite albums but Willo the wisp, Hopin...

Re: Single versions

Integral was so obvious as the lead single from Fundamental, with a video featuring Neil as a hectoring dictator giving a speech at a rally. Would have nicely set up the political theme of the album too

Re: A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

Well done Dog for being the top PSB nerd!! I’m pleased with my 2nd place. Like you, I’ve never heard the yo-yo story - most of the others I got wrong rang a bell once the answers were provided

Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

I chatted briefly to Chris at the bar at Muzik and I thought he looked better than I expected. I think sometimes he doesn’t photograph particularly well - I feel that pain! It’s always difficult when your public persona is a disguise, as people’s image of your true appearance is probably the Actuall...

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

I just listened all through Relentless, for the first time in a very long time. I remebered it as a cool sounding elecronic album, sort of a follow up to Introspective or a forerunner to Yes etc or Electric. Boy, I was wrong. It's quite bleak, feels dated, the few lyrics are of low quality. Had Eur...

Re: Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

I’m sure I will be flamed for this but there are many people such as myself, and possibly Neil, who rank Blair as the UK’s best ever PM. In my lifetime, Heath, Wilson, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Johnson. I know which one I’d choose.
