Re: You Are The One - Birds

I have to admit that this track isn't really all that. I liked it on first listen.

It's a cousin of the only one - which is one of th east underwritten, insipid songs they've ever recorded. It is better than that, but it just sounds a bit wet. Maybe it needs more listens...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

Is it Chris also doing a slight vocal at the end there too?

I love it. SO good. I like that it's hard to hear what's going on at the end.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Having already reviewed Hotspot I feel I don't wanna add much else. However, It has been somewhat forgotten that they made a German (albeit not Berlin) album using analogue synths – some of which they had never seen before – in Munich circa 1990 with Harold Faltermeyer for Behaviour. And it clearly ...

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

Well that is bloody marvellous isn't it!

And Chris dancing for the first time since Domino dancing??

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR
