Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Replace "Breathing space" and "'Give it a go" with "In slow motion" and "Woods" and it gets 110℅ better. Whilst I don't particularly like Elysium (although I do prefer it to Electric), there probably isn't going to be a consensus on which songs are better than others. For example, "Give it a go" is...

Re: PSB most certainly do excellent "intros"...what's your favourite?

Left To My Own Devices (Disco Mix) Being Boring (album version with the extended into) And just to counter all that... Can You Forgive Her? is the punchiest album intro for them ever.... especially following Behaviour All good, Left to My own devices album intro is also good. I would probably add O...

Re: Are we content ?

Likely to be on my own with this opinion, but their last few albums didn't really do much for me. Electric and Super had a few moments (although I would not say that any of the songs would make any PSB top 20 for me) so if they stopped today, I would feel like they ended their career on a low point....

Re: Reissues project

Not sure if this is the right topic, but I'll post here and see. I have the original CD of Please and am interested in buying the 2018 remaster as a download when it is released in March. My question is, for someone who is not an audiophile with bog standard equipment, will I notice any difference b...

Re: Top 5 PSB Songs This Decade (2010-2017)

I forgot to say what my Top 5 least favourite tracks are, so they are!: 1.) Love Is A Bourgeios Construct: Never felt the love for this one, I always tend to skip it on "Electric" after the superb double-punch of "Axis" & "Bolshy" (which I both love). This one though is far too long & just sounds l...

Re: Duets album (why I think is needed)

Why not go the whole hog and have them duet with Olly Murs while hes being bummed in the video. :lol: Maybe this could be the theme of the album, artists don't actually appear in the songs, just in the videos. That would tie into PSB's possible desire not to make videos anymore, much like Elton Joh...

I remember reading that they could have Tina Turner for Please, but Neil wanted to hold out for Dusty, hence the track being on Actually.

I can't imagine the song being the same with Tina Tuner.

Re: Would you include one song from "Super" in your Top 10 PSB songs of all time?

I've listened to Super a few more times since last I was on the forum and although (for me) better than Electric, it is still a lowly 2nd from last in my list of PSB albums. Whilst there are a few tracks on Super that are better than the worst tracks on some of the other albums, that is the most pra...
