Re: "I Prefer Their Later Work": 40 Brilliant Albums At The End Of Artists' Careers

In my opinion I think Very is where they really first hit their stride and showed the full breadth of their talent. Even if you ignore the couple of terrible tracks on Very, the album to me is the first album to really show the PSB in this light. I didn't get intot he Actually hype as I was not arou...

After The Event - from the Did You See Me Coming single The Former Enfant Terrible - from the Did You See Me Coming single One Night - from the Memory of the Future single A certain "Je ne sais quoi" - from the Winner single I ask because t...

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

They should compile every Literally from 1989 - 2016 and reassemble them into Annuallys for each year retrospectively...could we coff-up enough for that?? Just release all of them into one fat book and the fans will buy it. Add in an interview or something exclusive to this huge collection so the l...

Re: POPJUSTICE inteview, Neil wants to win an Oscar

Is Neil willing to lower his standards enough to be accepted enough by the hollywood establishment so he can win one of these awards?
I hope not.

It'd make a great poster or jigsaw puzzle! I would have inverted Electric and Yes, but the rest's quite right.
I fixed it for you.

Re: If you have a friend who wants to know about PSB's discography

Personally I would not start with Actually. I'd rather start with Very or Yes. But I see why Actually is the starting point, as it's the go to album of the fans. I only became a fan in 2009 so I know better than most what it's like to be a newer fan of the PSB. The fans need to start thinking like n...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

I agree with the comments about re-doing Release. What frustrates me about that album, probably more than any of their others, is that they recorded some really good songs in that period and yet the tracks they put on the album made it a bit incoherent. I would have sequenced Release like this: 1. ...

Minimal (Flea Market Montgomery) tweet

This is a fan made mix of the Minimal song. I've read that the PSB tweeted that they were quite impressed with how well done this fan mix was. Does anyone remember what the exact tweet was and can quite it here. I'd like to read exactly what the PSB said about this mix in the tweet. I'm sure others ...

Will the PSB ever enter the political realm again

And make another poltiical based album like Fundamental?

My current line of thinking, is after Electric and Super, apart from one song (Love is a bourgeois construct), both arte quite lyrically aprace albums. So this will not happen. What do you think?

Re: How did Phil Oakey got involved?

They were going to ask Bernard Sumner weren't they- Utterly LOVE this track. File with Fugitive - as in , why the HELL was it not on the parent album?? My best guess is apart from the album too long issue, the track just does not fit with the album's theme. Just like After The Event does not fit. T...

Re: Inner Sanctum demos

The first one is bretty bad. The second one is really good. It's like a very good mix. If you heard it cleaned up you'd be hard pressed to tell it's a demo. You can so tell what this track has and the album version lacks. I'd rather have had this version made into the album track, not the totally ch...
