Both albums are great, but Introspective gets my vote every time. My favourite track is still "I want a dog" 8)
I'm Not Scared is my favorite but "I want a dog" is quite good as well and puts the b-side version to shame. Completely different song.

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Not really looking for a reinvention per se. They really have managed to make every album unique in it's own way while still sounding distinctly PSB.

The one thing I would love to see while we are all in lockdown is a full album of their own remakes much like West End girls.

Friday and Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl...cool. But that parking is bullshit. Better walk there and park off-site.
Just park at Hollywood and Highland and take the bus in. Easy in and out by comparison. But yes, the bowl sucks. Beautiful venue, terrible bench seating.

So just to confirm, this would not be playable on a US bluray/DVD player, correct?

Great for the Boys but no Depeche, Cure or New Order but this is included:
Slightly difficult for DM and The Cure, as they've never had a UK number one.
That's very surprising, but not at the same time. Would have thought that at their peaks, both of them would have had a no 1 hit.

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

Great for the Boys but no Depeche, Cure or New Order but this is included: 20 Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (2012) On first listen, the song seemed deceptively featherweight. The strings sound like ringtones; the guitar parts as though they were lifted from a PlayStation 2 game. But even the most...

Just to give you hope, the RIxxxxNL package that never showed as ever leaving the Netherlands...turned up today in South of LA. Maybe someone just couldn't be bothered to scan it.
Mine never got scanned until the day it was being delivered by USPS.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Feel free to delete if not allowed... Has anyone or would anyone be willing to scan in the making of sections of annually covering Super and Electric (and others if available)? I found the Hotspot one fascinating and would love to read about the other albums. If not, no worries...thought it was wort...

Re: Literally and Versus America musings.

Finished reading vs America recently and agree on the commentary about Chris. Really didn't put him in a favorable light at times. Will hop back in to Literally sooner than later.

My Annually showed up here in Southern California today. What a fantastic read so far. Took a while but worth the wait.

Yeah, it's literally just a cross fade from one mix to the next. Absolute bootleg.

Re: The best remix ever

I did find it but am on a work conference call so I can't listen to it right now.
