Re: Ausfahrt = EXIT

Look at the amount of music. these guys love creating. they will be putting out albums till they die. and I think touring keeps them young and they enjoy the feeling of love they get so I suspect they wont ever retire and would be really surprised if they ever do.

Re: September single...???

NICE! the synths are dry and retro sounding, Neils voice seems purposely under produced as compared to his usual shimmering sound. its got a killer chorus that is immediate and really stays with you. the downside, I could have done without the collaboration. its distracting hearing someone elses voi...

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

You really have to be amazed at how prolific Neil and Chris are. I cant think of any artist who puts out so much new material. main albums, B-sides, collaborations, side projects, musicals. I cant think of anyone really.

Re: Breakups

What a coincidence. I was just watching a documentary on the musical group "The Carpenters' and Neil Sedaka was their opening act in the early days and according to the crew of the Carpenters they booted Neil off the tour because apparently he was getting too big a nice reaction from the crowd and w...

Re: Forgotten Child - unofficial JCRZ remix

Yeah this one is really good. I especially like whatever sound patch you are using on that little lead line that pops up every now and then. sometimes I listen to one of your mixes such as one I was listening to a little while ago, your remix of "legacy" , and the parts where neil is singing the par...

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: 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: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

its ok. love comes quickly and west end girls sound fantastic. otherwise I have never been impressed with any of their live recordings.
