Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

For me Hotspot didn’t do at all. I love ’Happy People’ and ’Decide’, but that’s it.
Sorry to say, but I think Hotspot is the boys weakest album to date.

Re: Hotspot ratings

No more than 5 for me. Just two tracks from the album I kept in my PSB playlist (Happy People and Only the Dark).

Re: Hotspot era design

I think maybe the first idea was to design this era with Berlin references, like the sleeve for “Dreamland”, hence Hotspot being their “Berlin album”. And maybe they later thought that this idea didn’t work that great, so they’ve put the “Berlin imagery” on inner sleeves - being like the core - and ...

Re: Obsessed with anything unreleased?

Studio versions of Love comes quickly from Nightlife and Super tours would be a nice single.

Re: Which last PSB song made you feel excited (like in the old days)?

I think ’Into thin air’ is a real masterpiece.
Clever, a bit dark and electronic.
Would love it if the new album goes in that direction.
