Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Super. The Stuart Price sound, but more variance, Electric was banger after banger, Super had a more diversity with 'slower' tracks like The Dictator Decides and Sad Robot World. yeah, but if we are being technical, super was a pure electronic album, hotspot isnt. yes they both have upbeat and slow...

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Def Elysium. how can it be nightlife? night life was electronic music with orchestra. Elysium however was upbeat songs paired with slow songs with pretty much all electronic and minimal real world instruments....just like hotspot. so if we are talking 2 albums both with a mixture of upbeat and slow ...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

it wouldn't be popular, but if I was the producer I would have dropped "you are the one",wedding in berlin,and burning the heather, make them B-sides and tell the boys dont come back until they have tracks more worthy of the main album than those. the rest...are very good although I tend to sleep on...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Nickname probably isnt a he or a she. we've probably been talking to a bot all these years. "Nickname" is probably just some little bot program some 15 year old hacker created in 10 minutes, uploaded it, it found its way to the PSB forum and became sentient and self aware not unlike the skynet virus...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

when I first heard the sample of it, I later found it misleading. the sample implied a somewhat typical lush PSB chorus..so I suspected the intro and verse parts would be accordingly like it.....which isnt the case...the verse parts are very different than the chorus. its like 2 different songs shov...

Nope. I still don’t get it. Sad robot world hardly sounds any cleverer than You are the one.
Thats ok. to each their own. I just dont like overused cliche teen pop style lyrics is all. you are the one, the only one,and all that.
Neil was def on automatic pilot with those 2 tracks.

Re: US TOUR

its not centered on the notion the PSB cant be an opening act,I am saying its due to the acts involved. there has never been any kind of contention between Robbie and the PSB. New Order and PSB however, I think its a bit more contentious due to being so close to the same kind of milieu musically and...

Re: Album closers / final track - do you have a favourite?

I think my fav closing song would be saturday night forever. I never got why this song isnt more popular with the fanbase at least.
it sounds like it could have been on fundamental/nightlife how it mixes electronics with real world instruments like those wonderful horns.

Re: US TOUR

That whole minefield of who opens for who captures the problem why I dont think it would happen. someone is going to have to be the subordinate to a peer in the situation. psbfanny said, "obviously" the PSB would open for NO. I doubt Neil and Chris would cede that. it would effectively define who wo...

Re: US TOUR

This seems kinda wrong. I dont think bands that have been around for so long and have both tasted success like both of these have, want to share a bill.

even though you might not think so, after all these years, they probably view each other as a threat and would rather it just be themselves.

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

One issue I have with this really nice track is,like so many PSB songs that has a really catchy chorus, they always end it too soon. rather I wish they would keep it going alot longer and build it up more.

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

That would be a great idea for a greatest hits, but I have a sense they dont want to go backwards and mine the past glory in the re recording sense.

I'm still in awe of that really trippy middle eight part where it goes a bit bonkers. its so good.
