Re: The New Album Info Thread

I was thinking that, although Hotspot as a title didn't click for me, now it's almost visionary as there are coronavirus hotspots all over the world. Even bland lyrics like Dreamland or I don't wanna have taken new meaning now. :shock: :shock:

Re: New official West End girls 2020 video

It starts kind of flat but it gets better after the keyboard solo: at that point Neil starts singing without trying to imitate the original and Chris goes bonkers. Nice remix.

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

Wow! Which song? I really hope it's West End girls, not Always on my mind.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Nice news! I hope it comes with subtitles, as the VHS didn't and it was hard to catch many phrases for a non-speaking person :lol:

As for New Boy, I'd say it's more Record Store Day material.

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

Maybe Disco 5 is a compilation of classic PSB songs remixed by Stuart Price. Like studio versions of the new remixes for the tours of this era. That would work as a greatest hits in disguise.

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

Clearly b-side material but I quite like it.

About Disco 5, bring it on! Specially if it ressembles Disco 3, one of my favourite releases from the Boys. (Had the standard version of Sexy Northener been there instead of the remix, it'd had been a pretty solid album.)

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

iTunes sales are minimal and meaningless nowadays. Streams and physical sales are decisive.

Top 3-5 is more likely, given their streams will be rather low but they will compensate with the highest physical sales.

Re: Stuart Price Trilogy Top/Worse 5 (2013-2020)

If the Boys give to whatever producer a song like Shouting in the evening, to name one, what can you do ? Its easier task to have Vocal and you only have to throw some sounds and rythms.. Stuart is a great producer but I find unfair judging songwriting from production I disagree. Listen to Vocal de...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

My main issue with the album is Wedding in Berlin, but they seem to like tacky songs to finish otherwise good albums: Saturday night forever, Legacy and the Elysium closer (I don't even remember the title) come to mind. I switched it with Decide on my Spotify playlist and it really works as the fina...

Re: Best option for 4 th single?

I love your artwork for Happy people, y3potential. It's like the hangover version of Thursday cover.

As for the 4th single, I voted I don't wanna to showcase the dirtier side of the album, a predominant sound of Hotspot that wasn't present on previous singles.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Is the the limited edition booklet identical to the standard one? Other than the yellow letters in the cover I mean.

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

I'm hoping for a Top 3 to keep the streak after Electric and Super. But a Top 5 would be awesome as well at this stage.
