Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Dreamland sounds like a sub-par track for Erasure. Don't get me wrong, I quite like a lot of Erasure's music, just DL sounds like something from their later catalog. If Andy and Vince did it I would probably shrug and think, hmmm, not their best but they're trying. For the PSB it is just incredibly ...

Re: Rate Monkey Business (edit version)

Swagger and attitude that goes nowhere, another disappointment from the Price era.

Re: That “So Hard” sample...

And the line in question in the original ABC track is Martin Fry's voice, not Eden/Fiona Russell

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

I like the 2 b-sides more than 2/3 of (not) ''Super,'' the Agenda ep and the a-side.
If the new album is more like the b-sides then I'll like it.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Easily one of the most awful things they've ever released. Certainly not lead single material & most of their b-sides are better than this.
They really need to move on from the Stuart Price connection.
(Not) Super was a dumpster fire and they appear to be breaking out the gasoline.

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

Nothing from (Not) Super?
That one is full of clunkers and Winner is a tough act to follow.

Wasn't there one on the album before called "Love is a Bubonic Concept"?

Re: Saint Ken (Mixes)

There's a couple in there that I like but to my ears it sounds like he uses the same sound and beat on his mixes and a lot of them all start to sound the same.

Re: In slow motion

In the booklet with the deluxe set they mention it being descriptive of a city like Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a certain time. I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life and haven't had a chuckle about Milwaukee like this since "Love, Actually" Oddly I don't think that they ever played Milwaukee, so I am no...

Actually, the bonus disc for the Yes reissue could be called Maybe.

I made my own deluxe edition of Yes years ago and named it "Yes, No, Maybe", nice to see someone else having the same train of thought.

Re: Reissues project

Add me to the list of those who are disappointed by the absence of "Little Black Dress." I also agree with the person who commented above that it would be nice if digital downloads would have the books. Not just with the series but with pretty much any cd bought that way. Some of us like the art, th...

Re: Reissues project

SDE covers a wide range of releases that are not your meat and potatoes cd release. However, a lot of what he focuses on is the items that are littered with a lot of frou frou, the album on cd, the album on vinyl, a cd of single edits, four cd's of remixes, 5 badges, a poster, a very small booklet, ...
