Re: Super – some early thoughts (spoilers)

The best thing about all these reviews is that there appear to be no absolute duds on this album... no Winners, Legacies, Footsteps or Electricities (and I am not inviting a backlash from the vociferous minority who like these tracks - I am just citing songs that are disliked by a significant propo...

Re: Super – some early thoughts (spoilers)

Would say The Pop Kids is a good choice so "show off" the album. Also radio friendly (Radio 2) in comparison to most tracks. Would be very surprised if Burn wasn't the second single. Probably a toss up between Say it to me and Undertow after that. I prefer former. Album will provoke strong reactions...

Super – some early thoughts (spoilers)

I’ve been fortunate enough to hear the album a number of times.... Happiness – Bonkers mid-90s beats with Neil’s hyper Country & Western nasal twang. Addictive considering it’s not a proper song. Does set the tone for the album. “it’s a long way to happiness. And when we get there is anyone’s guess”...

Re: Love is a bourgeois construct opening minute

The clips don't really reveal one of great things about this album - it's so coherent! Perhaps the best "feel" to an album since Very. It's FABULOUS!

Re: "Love is a B.C." live vs. album?

The whole album track has a dramatic disco sweep. The live version doesn't even hint at the widescreen scope of it all. Great rising keyboard intro before the strings and then decay to the orchestration and (thumping) bass kicks in. The choir is mixed perfectly and I think might be Neil multi tracke...

Re: Electric review

Unfortunately I can't reveal the source.

I just think everyone is going to love this album. I liked half of Elysium: Leaving, Memory, A face like that, Invisible and Requiem but Electric feels fresh and vibrant all the way through.

Electric review

I’m not a regular poster on here but visit often. I’ve been very fortunate to listen to Electric several times now. Here’s my brief review: Axis “Turn it on” Excellent opening track which sets the tone for the whole album. A clear statement of intent both in terms of sound and overall production. Fr...

Thanks. I'll wait until I'm lucky enough to hear them. The PSB's own mixes always stand out for me.
