Re: Poll begins on ranking the "Price trilogy" of albums

Electric. With the others it’s like two bald men arguing over a comb.

They fight for the honour of worst PSB album.

One will win but it doesn’t matter

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

Ok. Fair enough. Let’s hope that this isn’t the last sight of Chris unplugged as such. Be great if he would do a medley of some of their songs !!!

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

Still loving listening to this A couple of thoughts ... 1). This comes out after Tom Watkins died. The man who didn’t rate Chris and wanted Neil to go it alone. A big middle finger to Tom ? 2). I would dearly love to see Chris and piano alone (without the drum machine)... and perhaps see this... Chr...

Re: The official "Where's Drico?" thread

I know there’s another thread.... But deja vu got the better of me

I think I started a similar thread back a while ago (possibly over a decade ago)!!!

Just saying ... our notable absentee has form

And he always (eventually) reappears

Hope you’re ok fella ;-)

Re: Neil in Loose Women (you can watch it here)

Sounds like Glastonbury have asked Neil to keep stum

Perhaps he jumped the gun and they’ve asked Erasure instead ;-)

Re: An Open Mind should be on the album

I guess I must admit I sympathise with the theme of this topic. I would include an open mind instead of the awful ‘you are the one’ and put decide in place of the ‘winneresque’ wedding

It then would be a 7/10 album instead of a generous 6/10

I do like the other tracks though.

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

I’m trying to like the album. I gave it a 4/10 and I’ve probably upped that to a 6/10. Par with super, below electric Not a patch on please, actually, introspective, behaviour, very or even Yes. Probably above nightlife and release. I can’t believe I’m going to say this I prefer legacy to wedding in...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

So far. I really hope the album is a grower. About 3 tracks I like lots but slot of skipping ahead already. Probably a 4/10 so far

Guess it’s not surprising

I’m still waiting to hear it

Unsure which I’m more eager for ;-)

Re: Was it Roger Scruton PSB sued?..

Surely another master of the fair light was Blue Weaver

Still think it couldn’t happen here sounds better his way via the fairlight vs the orchestra.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

The first "official" critic from the german music magazine Rollingstone shows a 3.5\5 stars opinion. "On every disco stomper follows a ballad..." Perhaps like EV his review was based on his initial thoughts after 1 listen I understood EV’s take was at first the album was underwhelming Perhaps the r...
