Re: The New Album Info Thread

Judging by the timeline, which is similar to the recording of Elysium, it will most likely be in September. I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped back in LA after the far east tour to finish it up. It's probably done by now and they've moved on to the art work/PR/release planning stage.

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

Anyone else disappointed with this cheap sleeve? It's quite impossible to remove the discs without damaging the sleeve and/or discs. Whatever happened to proper plastic cases???

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

I'm curious to hear if the mastering for the CD is different than the lossless digital download I purchased in February. The criticisms that the audio is overly compressed and lacks detail, at least on the download, is spot on.

Re: Original track listing for “Disco One” from EMI America

I don't know if anyone remembers the old MUSE music catalog from back in the 1980s, but I distinctly remember that old industry catalog's entry for the "Disco" album instead used the title "Disco One" so the press release is most likely legitimate.

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

Regardless of the relative quality of the Agenda EP, I'm excited this release signals a potential change in future release strategy. I've always admired indie labels such as Mute that released non-standard output such as EPs and always wished PSB would release an EP or mini-album inbetween albums. I...

Re: Any insight...

My guess is they sat down with Stuart in their first meetings to discuss the new album and started to form a view on what kind of album they would make, and which tracks would best articulate this vision. At that point, when it would have become clear that the Agenda tracks were somewhat standalone...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Waited until Friday night and listened to the EP in one go. What a fun release! For me, there's a Beatles quality to it; it reminds me of something they might release if they were still around. It's not miles from songs PSB have done in the past. I see why they chose to release this set of songs in ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I think it's interesting they chose to release the tracks this way for those who wish to listen and have something new to look forward to most every day this week. Personally, I plan on waiting until this weekend when I will listen to the EP in one go. Over the past 25 years I have a tradition of gi...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I've not listened to the lead track yet; I'll wait until the whole EP is out this weekend. This is why I'm excited PSB are on their own indie label - so they may put out weird, non-commercial releases such as this!

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Anyone notice the Annually ad where they mention recording at Hansa Studios with Stuart Price?
