Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

Shameless never appealed to me either. It's perhaps the very first example of a "big production" from PSB that fell flat. For all the attempt at normally good PSB attributes like snearing attitude and kitchen sink production, I find it simply annoying. The chorus in particular is a dud. A Different ...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

@ Philby. To be fair, and though I agree in general about Domino dancing being not "pure pop" (see my previous comments), they did certainly ape a sound of the time. They had heard songs such as Come Go With Me, Let Me Be The One, and Seasons Change released by Expose in 1987, and nabbed that produc...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

I don't see Domino Dancing nor Heart as pure pop. Lyrically, sure. But Neil's darker vocals over the minor chords with insidious synths muddies the message. Pure pop? Sure they've done it. Try Groovy or Vulnerable. Domino dancing and Heart have so much going on sonically that put them in another rea...

Re: PSB in Select Magazine scans

http://selectmagazinescans.monkeon.co.uk/showpage.php?file=wp-content/uploads/2016/06/albums11.jpg This is such an utter shart review. Anyone who loves Behavior will have a good laugh at this. At least he didn't say a single word about This must be the place, as I don't think I could have handled th...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Do I Have To? (Fairymatic Trippytale mix)

Really good. Could maybe use a bit more low end but I'm listening on tinny speakers. Would like to hear other PSB tracks in this style, maybe an entire album. Is there somewhere we can get a download of this?

One More Chance officially wins. Would hate to see One More Chance versus Winner.

He's legally obligated to name himself after something from Legacy. :P
You'll have to speak to my lawyer but I think this is correct.

York Minister,

Will you be changing your username again shortly, to hide from the consequences of your inane topics?

Retro. :)
Let me know when the boys have a new album out and there's actual activity in the forum, then the polls will sail away.

In the meantime, enjoy.

Oddball Matchup Round 3: Can Bolshy take the heat?

Bolshy has won twice in a row. But can it stand up to the new competition?

Re: Oddball Matchup Round 2: Bolshy has new competition

I hope Building A Wall gets an outing at some point. It's definitely an oddball, but also one of my all time favourites. One of my favorites too. Does not seem to be a fan favorite, although it also doesn't get mentioned in the embarrassing lists. My two favorites from Yes are Building a wall and L...

One hit wonder and postscript would beat Winner.
We may have to try this in the next poll.

Re: Oddball Matchup Round 2: Bolshy has new competition

Questions:

All the people who profess to like Winner. Do you just like Bolshy more?

I wonder if Different Point of View would also beat Winner.
