Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

Nice to have some strings back again. I will listening to Super the other day. Trying to wrap my head around why Hotspot for some reason isn't really overall clicking for me. It's partly the analog nature of Hotspot. Its not over produced and lush like say Fundamental. Lacks strings for the most par...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

The fact that we're not getting the usual two b-sides per single leads me to believe there is another collection of songs, be that another album, side-project, or EP in the offing. There is. Its called Disco 5. Remember what we got after Release? They had some up tempo stuff they did not put on Rel...

Re: Official store Hotspot signed prints damage

Oh God..just imagine the condition for the prints for the people (like me) who are in the other side of the globe... We´ll be getting big disappointments on the next weeks... :/ I live in Ontario, Canada, and it has a ways to go before it's in my hands... :( I'm in Ontario as well. I did not get Bu...

Re: Neil in Loose Women (you can watch it here)

This show seems to be a copy of "The View" in the US. Canada has a version of "The View" called the social. I bet you he went on it as he likes the show, or Janet Street Porter put him up to it. I don't think this is really effective promotion. I see this as no different than when Chris did Neighbou...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

My reaction to this was very much like my initial reaction to Behaviour. Not as much banging and stomping tracks. Its not Electric, no is is Super. Stompers always hit me right away, slower tempo tracks take a while to grown on me. So it's a 6/10 or 7/10. But like Behaviour, and in fact for me, Rele...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

You just know that Will O The Wisp intro will be the new intro on tour if they modify the tracks they play when they tour this fall. Like Axis and Inner Sanctum was. A grand powerful opening.

Re: Go West and Radio 2

Original single was out October 28th 1992. Then pulled and reworked and released as the second single for Very in 1993. You are correct. Mark Stent 7" mix may have been digitized by BBC Radio 2 and they may be playing it by accident. There is always a chance.

Re: Snippets

The snippets differ whether you play the CD snippets or the LP ones. So you can listen to two different snippets of each song by bouncing from the CD to the LP previews.

Re: and...Disco 5!!!!

Disco 3 followed Release. Because they had all these dance tracks. So maybe Disco 5 makes sense if they have more thumpers recorded that do not fit on Hotspot.

Re: Dreamland (Full Intention Classic Remix) ?!!

There's new york disco vibe to this mix. It also reminds me of Love to Infinity mixes. You can tell its an American mix for an American audience. It has that sound. Like it should be playing at Studio 54.

Re: Rate Monkey Business (edit version)

For the first time ever, I am not really loving a PSB single. Its different. But I just can't get into it for some reason.
