Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Anyone got a decent hi-res artwork image of My Beautiful Laundrette? Best resolution I found, with an admittedly lacklustre search before I came here, was 593x599. Thanks if you do! https://dvfnvgxhycwzf.cloudfront.net/media/SharedImage/imageFull/.fMwgxjBX/SharedImage-100059.jpg?t=fac0907e4cb51ad9e...

Re: New Boy & I Don't Wanna Mixes Snippets

I don't really agree with the demo-ish feel comments about New Boy, sounds like a lovely and lush ballad, the drum programming is interesting, especially in the second part when it goes all a bit contemporary pop. Still haven't given a spin to the Mano Le Tough remix, but the two David Jackson remix...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

Surely they will release something in the meantime, they can't ride this momentum wave they've generated with the Hyde Park gig, the Monkey Business and Dreamland radio exposure etc. until 2021.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Denmark just banned all gatherings of more than 10 people until end of AUGUST! Stop posting bullshit and some facts made up from different parts of a sentence. This is what a Reuters article says about Denmark: All remaining restrictions including a ban on gatherings of more than 10 people would st...

Seems far too late for a Hotspot single. Maybe something in conjunction with the often rumoured Di5co?

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

Shouldn't this come out sometime in March, and therefore be announced already? If it comes out in April, it's all a bit too close to the My Beautiful Laundrette OST and the new Annually.

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

The more I listen to At Rock Bottom, the more I hear the little nuances in the production and I've actually got to take back my "sparseness" comment - loving the simplicity, but it's not sparse by any means. It's a lovely mid-tempo tune, with the best lyrics from the three B-sides IMHO (I ...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

So 'At Rock Bottom' is indeed produced by Stuart Price. Sounds very sparse compared to the rest of the tracks from this era, if a bit underwhelming - but it's hard to follow the high standard of 'Decide' and 'An Open Mind'.

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

Any word about the producer of At Rock Bottom? Is it (hopefully) another album session leftover, like An Open Mind and Decide were?

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

Could be miles off, could be correct.

My ears say the vocoder lyrics are "Stop me from getting better."

My two cents.

Dreamland, because it's probably the only one I like more than the vocal version.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Hoping For A Miracle and An Open Mind hooks have very similar instrumentation, don't they?

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

A beautiful mid-tempo ballad and the main hook is just..wow! Among my favourites on Hotspot for sure, my favourite of all the slower ones.

Delighted and relieved - the Prins Thomas Diskomiks makes this a modern classic.
