Greetings,

Nonsense. Agenda is weak, with two (i.e. half) of the songs being virtually unlistenable, whereas Hotspot is fantastic and has only the one duff track at the end. I'll be eternally grateful that they kept the Guardian op-eds off the album itself.

Retro. :)

EV - Why do you think Monkey Business might be polarising? Is it uber-cheesy like New York city boy?

Re: Possibilities of a Christmas leak

Speaking of Super, Drico reviewed it a month before release. I wonder if we'll get an early Drico review of Hotspot? He hasn't posted in a while. Oh that would be nice Although I'm very happy with Effen Vida's review.... as he is a fan of The way it used to be (so we align), and thinks most tracks ...

Re: Possibilities of a Christmas leak

I don't think it will leak before Christmas. IIRC, Super didn't leak until two or three days before release.

Speaking of Super, Drico reviewed it a month before release. I wonder if we'll get an early Drico review of Hotspot? He hasn't posted in a while.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Effen Vida:

Now that everyone has heard Decide, I'd like to ask you the following:

1) How indicative of the overall sound of Hotspot is Decide?

2) Would Decide be out of place on Hotspot?

3) Does it sound like any Hotspot song in particular?

Thank you.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thanks for the review, EV.

Have you heard Decide? If so, would it have worked on Hotspot?

What song has the best, most amazing middle-eight?

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Thanks for the review. I have a few questions: 1) How does the album version of Burning the Heather differ from the radio edit? Are there extra lyrics, an instrumental outro, etc.? 2) Neil mentioned that Dreamland is the outlier on Hotspot. Do you agree and, if so, what sets it apart from the rest o...

This obviously is made-up news. The title is quite misleading. :evil: Why don't you change the title to something like "3rd single speculation"?
You are fake news.

On the contrary, I don't do fake news. This is not fake news.

Kind regards.

Retro. :)
