Re: The New Album Info Thread

It is an album in its own right. Never understood why it’s regarded as anything else, let alone when it’s referred to as a remix album

Re: NEIL IS BACK!

I read recently that he was a co-signatory to a letter from musicians bemoaning Brexit and how it will damage music industry. After all the charts are cluttered with acts from the other 27 nations, and we may have to start listening to American acts, can you imagine that cultural sea change. The let...

Re: Royal Opera House Shows DVD

Evidently not, otherwise so many wouldn’t still be released. A well filmed live concert sound wise and visually destroys almost anything you’d find on YouTube.

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

Looking at it right now, I would like most, if not all "Electric" and "Super" tracks to make it. Basically, as little overlap with Pandemonium as possible. Just a couple of "necessary" hits. Imagine how brave it would be not to include "West End girls" for once. I'd be quite happy with such a track...

Re: Billie Trix - a show

Link or are we just going on what someone says? What possible reason would he have for lying about this.

Also the track is a prediction of bad times to come as opposed to the usual song type lamenting the past. Next Disco Potential

Re: Reviving the PSB Song Game

Perhaps the rawest, most exposed emotion in a PSB track. Typically for a group who are often perceived as, wrongly, cold and aloof, the track is hidden after a song re-contextualised as a lament to the death of a gay utopia and is, so we believe, addressed to a lover dying as a result of aids.

Why? "Yes" had plenty of dance. Their first albums that were summarised by Discography were far from pure dance, and those are the foundations. Electric is on it's own so far. Relentless and Disco are cousins, but not exactly albums.
In what way is Relentless not an album?

Re: No HMV art cards!

Surely that would be more of an incentive to have the prints readily available as an incentive for previous purchasers to double dip.
