I second this sentiment. One of their most interesting tours, with some lovely mashups. :dance:

Re: New Year's Eve 2021 Romy Mix, featuring Always on my Mind

I couldn't care less if a nameless "DJ" put a PSB song in their playlist, but Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!! I'm writing from 2021. Things are better here.... Hah, nameless.. it's more like you being clueless (sorry, had to do this play on words, no hard feelings please). :D She's one third of ...

Re: Now 7 on CD

What's special about the Matrix edit?

EDIT: Ah, I see it's on YouTube. Will just have to listen to the differences myself. :D

I think there's a level of respect, but PSB are considered sometimes a bit too lightweight, that's the general consensus I feel - at least on the forum I am part of, HOME.

A whopping 18 times mentioned. Depeche Mode, on the other hand, only 8 times.

Depeche Mode #1
PSB #2

..then Editors, New Order and Erasure in no particular order.

Re: Do You Want A New Bitch (Misheard Lyrics - Merged Threads)

Call me weird, but at 4:40-4:41 after "Mia culpla, mia culpa", I keep hearing "Baby, am so sorry I called you that" (a very faint and not really distinguishable "that") https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRHetRTOD1Q Anyone else hear this or am I losing the plot? It's just...

Re: NEW West End Girls 2x12" (Nov 2020)

Why bother with these 3rd grade remixes, when we had a new version by the boys themselves, not long ago?

Beats all of those by a country mile.

Re: Single versions

Well i do own the 12" and cd single, (as he smooths down his ruffled collector feathers) but it'd be nice to have it in the pubic domain, mainly because it's the best mix! You must really love it if you want to keep it down there. :mrgreen: For me the best single versions are It's Alright and ...

Re: Unity Tour would be starting tomorrow in Toronto

It's a lovely tune, perhaps a bit generic NO. Hope they manage to put out a new album before the start of the delayed Unity tour.

Re: Fundamental Instrumental leaked

These instrumentals make me appreciate I'm With Stupid a lot more - sounds much more sophisticated in instrumental guise.

The opening notes of Integral are also very surprising, don't know why but I didn't expect them to be so...weak? That vocal intro is integral (pun-intended, haha).

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

Just saw the title of this thread - it's not very good..

Of course it can't sound like a contemporary record, they didn't have the technology back then as they do now for mastering and EQing it - it sounds a tiny bit muffled, but on a good system it's a proper banger.

Re: Bring him back - I know who I want to produce the next album

I'd rather have them continue with Stuart Price, than make another camp-ish record like Elysium was. What I really wish for the next album is that they go either: - the deep electronic down-tempo route, like Invisible falsely promised Elysium was going to be or - a darker techno route, so as to cont...

Re: Hey, Super - that's a really good album

Personally, I'm waiting for that dark techno they promised. Could be an EP for all I care, as long as it comes out.
