Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

whats going to be funny is, at some point...Neil will comment on the drama just like he did with legacy. "the fans all hate this track"
they're probably going to do that again.

Re: The bells. the bells?

consider that at one point those 2 songs segued into each other...and lets say at a later date they decided to change the tracklist...why wouldnt they correct the segueing parts? way I figure it its a few clicks of a mouse button to correct.

Re: Lost mix tape including PSB washes up as art 25 years later!

I think that's the kind of thing that would bother Paul even with as much success as he's had. that this young girl at the time decided he was only 1 of 2 artists that didn't make the cut for the mixtape. if you noticed the discrepancy, other people will put it out there for Paul to enjoy this littl...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

Footsteps is great, it definitely has its fans. The montage version is nice. warm and understated, whereas the nightlife version I find to be kinda rough sounding. if the album version was more like that it would have been loads better. on another note, HotSpot could have used more guitar. I can on...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

wouldn't releasing even more than 5 singles be a good thing? whats the downside? if you pair the singles with new B-sides, I suspect many like us would keep buying. $$$$$

Re: Hotspot ratings

Its a bit meh for me. Actually that would be a very PSB idea for a song or album title “meh”

Re: "Literally & Pet Shop Boys versus America +": Autographed by Neil & Chris March 19, 2020

I totally get collecting, seems like fun but if you saw the state of the PSB physical stuff I've gotten thru the years...sheesh. the only thing I ever had of theirs of interest is that little mini CD I got after a concert in NYC. my most prized possession of anything is one of my shotguns signed by ...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

I dont care what the single is really. I do however care that we have another B-side. although I have to say lyrically it sounds a bit trite, its going to be real interesting to actually hear a new song...that was written in their imperial phase...its going to be almost like time travel in a ways.

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Super. The Stuart Price sound, but more variance, Electric was banger after banger, Super had a more diversity with 'slower' tracks like The Dictator Decides and Sad Robot World. yeah, but if we are being technical, super was a pure electronic album, hotspot isnt. yes they both have upbeat and slow...

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Def Elysium. how can it be nightlife? night life was electronic music with orchestra. Elysium however was upbeat songs paired with slow songs with pretty much all electronic and minimal real world instruments....just like hotspot. so if we are talking 2 albums both with a mixture of upbeat and slow ...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

it wouldn't be popular, but if I was the producer I would have dropped "you are the one",wedding in berlin,and burning the heather, make them B-sides and tell the boys dont come back until they have tracks more worthy of the main album than those. the rest...are very good although I tend to sleep on...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Nickname probably isnt a he or a she. we've probably been talking to a bot all these years. "Nickname" is probably just some little bot program some 15 year old hacker created in 10 minutes, uploaded it, it found its way to the PSB forum and became sentient and self aware not unlike the skynet virus...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

when I first heard the sample of it, I later found it misleading. the sample implied a somewhat typical lush PSB chorus..so I suspected the intro and verse parts would be accordingly like it.....which isnt the case...the verse parts are very different than the chorus. its like 2 different songs shov...

Nope. I still don’t get it. Sad robot world hardly sounds any cleverer than You are the one.
Thats ok. to each their own. I just dont like overused cliche teen pop style lyrics is all. you are the one, the only one,and all that.
Neil was def on automatic pilot with those 2 tracks.
