Re: Robbie sounds like PSB on new album

Posh Boy wrote:track 6: Last days of disco
He just about succeeds in making it sound like a passable Pet Shop Boys B-side.

track 10: Difficult for weirdos
This time, the producer's magic dust makes Difficult For Weirdos sound, in parts, like a Pet Shop Boys A-side.
Is this about Blue Swan?

Re: Yes enters UK album chart at No.4

Why doesn't it surprise me that somebody with all the artistic sensibility of a salted slug doesn't get Bowie? This is taken from Masturbator's riveting chart blog in which he discusses forty random songs from fifteen years ago: I have to confess to having spent my entire life trying to 'get' the ge...

Hmm, let's see. Whose opinion do I respect more? The singer of one of the biggest groups in the world right now or a Radio 1/T4 fashionista? I really hate Grimshaw.

Re: Best track on Yes.....so far

I've not heard any of them yet except for Love Etc. but it's interesting to observe that the one new track which PSB selected to go on the Daily Mail giveaway is the one track that has yet to score a single vote. Fair enough you don't want to give away any potential future singles, but this vote su...
