Re: Burning the heather

I made the decision to stop buying physical media so no complaints from me regarding the price. Hoping this will make it to the Juno Download store.

Re: Burning the heather

It’s such a shame that it’s yet another song let down by muddy production. It should sweep and soar, the sonics are all there, but they’re pinned down and buried beneath a busy fudge. I'm hoping that it will sound better -- cleaner and crisper -- on CD when the album is released. Expectation bias w...

Re: Burning the heather

I do find it strange how some Petheads have an aversion to their slower songs these days, considering that they've always released them along with the bangers. Later Tonight, King's Cross, It Couldn't Happen Here, Behaviour, Dreaming of the Queen, It Always Comes as a Surprise..... These days liste...

Re: Hotspot album promo music

This is the best teaser for Hotspot so far, in my opinion, those few seconds definitely grabbed my attention more than Dreamland and Heather.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Teasing us with Dreamland and Heather and then casually dropping the most exciting teaser afterwards is so PSB.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

In my opinion both Dreamland B-sides are far better than the A-side, the same may very well be true for the next single, it's a pretty common thing with PSB.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

If you thought the album title, track titles and Burn the heather's sound were unexpected, Hotspot will be PSB's 2nd 4-years album, after Fundamental: 1986-1987-1988-1990-1993-1996-1999-2002-2006-2009-2012-2013-2016-2020

Re: I don’t wanna

That's a track title I'd expect from the Spice Girls. But titles say nothing about the content, especially when PSB are concerned, so who knows, could be the best track on the album.

Re: Burning the heather

This is one of those tracks that I think sound good and have a decent atmosphere and melody to them, but lack that extra punch that would make me go out of my way to listen to them. So I'll probably end up only listening to it during passive listening when it starts playing in the background while d...

Re: Do You Consider Disappointed a part of the "official" canon?

An absurdly catchy tune, one of the rare exceptions where I find the verses catchier than the chorus.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

7 for me, which means I enjoy it quite a bit but isn't one of those instant earworms that keep me humming and hearing it in my mind all the time.

Re: What is your least favourite EVER Pet Shop Boys song?

Curious, Metamorphosis and Electricity still haven't gotten any votes. I thought they were popular picks in polls like this.
