I don't see any problems with the re-issues. and as for the 2 disc versions, I can' t think of any better re-issue packages out there. Sure there are the 5.1 mixes of other artists out there, but a reissue in that avenue should be targeted at the hi-fi market, by buyers who obviously have money to s...

The Dub Mix is basically an instrumental with some reverbed vocals thrown in at times. As it is an instrumental, it seems more like a PSB track.

Yeah, it will be nice to hear a fully produced Bright Young Things. It will be intereting to see if the demo was better.

Yeah I thought that Send Me An Angel' '89 may have had PSB on it,to anyone who does not remember, this was the time of Getting Away With It, Losing my Mind, and I'm Not Scared as well as the disty stuff. If you listen to the chorus it isn't much of a stretch. Yeah, it is a bit cheezy but not much mo...

Excellent news. That should be the biggest hit for the album. Maybe another single in January to follow. Odd as well that three years later it may have a crossover with Popart in the states.

I don’t really feel that the soundtrack works as individual tracks, rather it is one epic piece that builds on itself. As one complete piece, it is my favorite PSB composition.
On it's own and as a whole it stands up and, actually, and for the better, transcends the whole pop idiom.

To get airplay PSB need a good song that is A) catchy B)simple C) not too gay D) pop but not over the top cheese. It isnt that easy to make hit songs. Mosty remixes are not what they are cracked up to be. Richard X was a step in the right direction. Really if they were to remix their catalog and upd...

PSB have been around for 25 years, and are still releasing hits. If that is not a measure of success, I don't know what is. Most of the people in the top 40 weren't even born when PSB statrted. Minimal was not a big hit but made the top 40 in the UK anyway. It was by most accounts not such a great s...

The quality is near perfect and the best out there for what is not already released on reissue. MP3 has killed off any opiotn of an aurally 4. Worth hunting down. Liberation (Deep Vocal Mix) probably came from a DAT refernece, but who knows besides the people who put it together. Aurally 3 was also ...
