Re: Introspective 2018 CD Remaster reviews

Mmmm...Decision of grandeur!!!! I came to the conclusion before ALL 2017/2018 re-issues were released that I will only buy Nightlife thru to Elysium on Cd and Please, Actually, Introspective, Bilingual & Release on Vinyl. I used to be a stickler of buying virtually everything they released. Havi...

The Apple in Neil's & Chris' eyes

Having found a new found love of the music from The Beatles. I was just wondering if Neil & Chris were ever fans of The Fab Four ? Thought I heard somewhere, Neil in particular, grew up liking The Beatles & have seen him being interviewed wearing a Beatles T-Shirt but no other references hav...

Re: Showing some love for Construct

Love this song. Have done so since watching a live version on YouTube before it was released. It's just another example of how well the boys integrate another composition & blend it into there own! I find it very British....love the line "drinking tea like Tony Benn". For me the climax...

Re: The Catalogue Interviews - put your questions to Julian Mendelsohn!

“I love you”?? Really...Can’t hear it! Just think it’s a sound effect but wanting to know what techniques were used to get it....From the fairlight probably!!

Re: The Catalogue Interviews - put your questions to Julian Mendelsohn!

Everything about Always on my mind is perfection, especially the Extended Dance Version. What was the process like to turn the demo into the perfect pop song? Also, what is the correct name for the sound effect used throughout the song? I can only describe it as a "Wind blower" or "W...

Re: Always 30 on my mind

"Happy 30th Birthday Always on my mind". This was the song that defined me as a true Pet Shop Boys fan. I always liked them from the off, after seeing them do "practically nothing" on Top of the Pops performing West End Girls. I actually (excuse the pun) remember watching the bo...

Re: Reissues project

Had a Further Listening Chill day today & listened to Release & Fundamental back to back while reading through the corresponding lyrics comments & admiring the photo's. In particular the Numb sleeve design. Always loved this as it has some sort of romantic spooky feeling to it. Will have...

Kazak V Pazzo

Thinking how well Kazak would have fitted nice & snug on the Super album instead of Pazzo.
The dictator decides fading out into Kazak would have been sublime.

I must add the Demo's on all Nightlife, Release & Fundamental Further Listenings are polished pop!

One or the other

....Great song title that. Simples, if you could be either Neil or Chris, who would you be and why? Think I would be Chris. Everything about him is unique. Love to be as talented in music as him & take all the fame without seemingly being famous. To have that inner power when on stage and to pro...
