The melody is not as "in your face" as the stuff on Yes was, but am really loving the production and vocals, I love it when Neil sings in octaves like this.

It's a beautiful song about coming to terms with irrelevancy.

Neil sounds like he's about to top himself.

i'm a bit disappointed because it's not really sounding special, especially the small electro sound that seem something we usually hear in other artist production. But i think it will need several listen.

on second listen, I almost nodded off :oops: but nice piano bits. Is this the most mellow song they've ever done ?

I'm a lil concerned at the lyrics, is this some hint that they're done with the pop game and want to retire into the country (after their next never ending tour that is !)
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

The video's great. Anybody else see Chris's surfboard from the Go West video in it? There's a bit that reminds me of this too:

strange vid, it' like there were something hidden in this or something to understand (of course the characters want to become invisible with the wall paper in their back but i hope there's something deeper than that)

I love it. I can hear a new production sound, its lush and very PSB. Agree I don't think single but what's a single now anyway. :-)

It's fabulous. New music. New sound. Not your usual stomp stomp... good! They are daring enough to try new things.

A tweet to Pete Gleadall:

Benedict Shaw ‏@Bensahobbit:
"@cheekypete Hi Pete, is 'Invisible' the 1st single?"

And his answer:

Pete Gleadall ‏@cheekypete
@Bensahobbit seen the video ?


This is a brilliant answer, could mean anything:
a) Have you seen the video? It's so minimalistic, certainly not good enough for a lead single.
b) Have you seen the video? The song does have a video, so it's probably gonna be a single.

Spot on. If it is the lead single single, it's the step they've needed to take for quite some time now. I also think it may be one of those insidious songs that works its way inside your head and refuses to leave.

I agree. Neil singing in octaves is amazing. Great song and great production. No complaints here. Doesn't sound like a single by any means, but I'm not sure singles really matter that much for PSB these days.

Would love to hear it!
Love comes quickly, but is a catastrophe and a bourgeois construct etc.
