Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

I felt musically it was a step back into the simplistic straight ahead musicality of early demo-ish sounding PSB..which I never liked.

Re: Shorter songs - Annoying

I'm the opposite. I HATE these, I guess you call them..."extended versions" ones where they just take the groove and extend it. dont like them. oh, and their songs that dont have an actual chorus. I hate those as well. I like quick snappy pop songs...unless....they have something that makes it inter...

Not at all. Just channelling what some on this forum probably think anyway. I doubt many are exactly thrilled at the return of BT. Bit like an 18 year old corpse suddenly saying "and another thing..."

Re: Of course it might just be me........

Maybe we are going to get another surprise release. be a very smart decision. no melodramatic build up where it usually causes a big let down...head off illegal downloading...we just wake up one morning, its there.

Re: Grenfell Tower tweet

you beat me to it. that app is indispensable. I cant tell you how many times I've been in a store and heard a tune I had to know what it is and I fire up Shazam and BOOM got the answer. although there are some nail biting moments when a song is ending as you feverishly try and start shazam up and th...

Re: Of course it might just be me........

I'd like another fundamental. an album that walks the line between epic sounding upbeat tunes and ballads.
but I would also hope for a surprise release soon.

Re: IF Disney wanted PSB to work on a soundtrack, would you like it?

there's a european band named "GHOST" thats very big over here. a couple things...one ...they wear evil looking old man masks and costumes, and they are a band whose imagery and style is regarding satan, singing songs about lucifer. yet oddly young children have embraced them. the lyrics about satan...

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

its just another album. some songs shine some dont. standard PSB album. its not some aberration. in any case....I wonder...if we are going to get another surprise PSB release. is it too much to hope for after the surprise of Agenda? I hope not. with more bands getting into the surprise release busin...

Re: What's the most impressive thing PSB have done?

The most impressive thing I think they have done was the "Agenda EP". not the music, their music is always wonderful. for me the most impressive thing was they actually went against their usual modus operandi and gave us a surprise album. more of this please. the usual style of finding out the album...

Re: Most Forgettable PSB Song

Does anyone remember Inside? Or was it so forgettable you forgot it? For some reason everytime I hear "Playground bullies taunt and cheat" the next line in my head is "a sensitive soul who's a role model". Must be the same chords or something. there ya go! I was struggling with something for this t...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

While I dont necessarily agree with a couple lyrics, I kinda like political Neil. he's topical. I'd rather he keep on that, rather than songs about pop kids or burning the disco down. but I suspect he will always do both. but boy still lovin "On Social Media". what a great track

Re: Poll ends soon on your early overall impression of Agenda

Very happy with the results so far. its kinda clear that the negative reviews expressed here were by no means representative of the overall view by fans. I always keep forgetting that, not ...all the fans... are on this forum and that there actually are other fans out there :)

Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

One thing though, as beautiful as the forgotten child is, I always wince...when I read a review of a PSB song I havent heard yet and the person describes a PSB song as not having a chorus. forgotten child makes up for it with the nice arrangement and that stunning ending section, but to me, any PSB ...

Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

the place is usually not whats odd.....its the song selection. sometimes I have heard deep tracks at the strangest places. I never dreamed...the day would come I would hear "drunk" and "before"at abercrombie and fitch. and "the end of the world" on the muzak system at a movie theater hallway. yes it...
