Re: 25 years of Can You Forgive Her

I still remember buying the Can You Forgive Her? on 7" single on a sunny day in my home town, while studying for my high school exams, and going home to play it over and over and over again. I must have listened to it at least 20 times that first day and to this day I am still excited to hear it eve...

It's actually more like "This is how I learnt to hate rock'n'roll"

Leaving is not the new 'Being Boring', it's the new 'I don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore'

Re: PSB wardrobe

Clearly the most iconic and valuable items from their wardrobe will be the costumes from the Very era - especially Can You Forgive her and Go West.

Re: Their biggest mistake?

The Night I fell in love. But that's just a personal opinion. Career-wise it was probably It couldn't happen here, but it's fair to say that PSB have an exceptionally unblemished career, with few or no mis-steps or public scandals, and an incredible string of successes across the years. Given what t...

Re: Elysium vs. Yes

I think they are very different types of albums. Yes is really an album of hits and misses - each song stands alone and can easily be heard out of context. Some of them are very good, while others are not. I tend to skip through that album and only hear 5-6 songs. Elysium, on other hand, is a much m...

I think she's great - although I think her first album was much better than the new one. The Family Jewels is one of my favourite albums of the last 5-10 years.

Re: Ego Music: Why the boys hate Lady Gaga?

The point of making a song like Ego Music is exactly that it is a composite - it's a parody of the attitudes of many young celebrities today - and in the past. If it were just about one person, it would simply be cruel - and not very interesting. I haven't heard of them falling out with Lady Gaga an...

Re: ELYSIUM: Track-listing & Artwork - OFFICIAL

It's interesting how people appreciate such different tracks. In my view, the standout tracks so far are Memory of the Future, Requiem. and maybe Hold On - I think the entire second half of the album is very strong, whereas the first third is a bit tough to get through.
