Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

Here's my two cents: Musik is ridiculously good. It's everything you want from the PSB - except maybe for Neil's voice, but Frances Barber does such a good job that I'm not even sure of that. I think it's their best work since Leaving. Oh, and For every moment is utterly fantastic. I hope the boys w...

Re: Bubadubadubadum (All My Wasted Time)

I love In the club or in the queue. I would kill for a high quality version of the original demo. I can see why it's difficult to rerecord it. The underground feel is something that would probably get lost in the mix now. Bubadubadubadum I can take or leave tbh.

Re: 1988 photo

There's a third one up now, from the session the In depth photo was taken. I'd say there was definitely something afoot.

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

I love Your early stuff to bits. It's one of my favourite songs and the middle eight gives me goosebumps. Elysium is certainly flawed but there's a lot to enjoy. Don't forget A face like that. And I like Give it a go too, btw. Even Winner has grown on me over the years.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

The start of the song reminds me of their version of Viva la Vida.

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

I keep hoping this thread will all of a sudden contain some news about an actual release. I don't think I've ever been more starved for some PSB-news than at this point in time.

Re: Unofficial items

I know that that CD is a bootleg, but is there actually an Ian Levine dub of Paninaro?

Re: Super tour to Japan in March / April

I'm happy for the people who want to see this, but it's all getting very old, isn't it?
It they're resurrecting tours, couldn't they go on tour with Performance again? That I'd like to see.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Hand bound and signed by THE THE author?!

And he signed that 505 times? :-o
Also, it seems to imply that Neil bound the books himself...

Re: In the studio: 21 songs for the new album so far

The lyrics to In slow motion are rather bland to my ears and let it down somewhat. But it's still a great song.

Re: Reissues project

I bought Very and Bilingual on LP. Didn't own Bilingual on vinyl yet so I'm quite happy with that. I noticed something about the cover of Very. For the reissue, the pattern of Neil and Chris heads is the same on the back and the front. The front cover of the reissue has one Chris looking down (where...
