Flamboyant was better than Miracles but charted 2 places lower... although this time the difference between the 2 is a bit more extreme.... hmmm....

I'll pick it to be exactly the same chart position as I'm with stupid was! Was that #7 or #8... or does it depend on what chart you look at?

Reasons I think this looks like a poorly assembled compilation... 1. Why not the 7" mix of Feel Every Beat? The album version is boring in comparison. 2. Why not the full version of Get The Message? The 7" cuts out all the best bits. 3. It starts off being chronological and then goes all over the sh...

I might go and give it another listen tonight, but I don't remember being particularly enthused last time I heard it.

That wouldn't make you homophobic, only insecure. But not insecure about your sexuality, but insecure in the sense that you require approval from others to justify your self-worth.

I'll agree with you if it doesn't result in either Parlophone dropping them, reducing their budgets and so on. To that extent I care a lot!

How would "not comparing" them help us understand them any more.

It doesn't make sense as a duet... it was a song about a politician and his wife. What's it about now???

Integral wouldn't feel out of place musically on Very.

Neither would Luna Park (in a Liberation / Dreaming Of The Queen kind of way).

Most fans probably bought one of the imports. I know I did. Message to record label: release PSB albums within a week of the UK release and at least give us the same extras as the UK version or we won't buy the album from you. Namely, the b-sides and remixes from the singles you're not going to be ...
