Have you even listened to The Most Incredible Thing more than once or do you think that music is "dirge" too? These Underworld tracks are not in the same league! The ballet score is a masterpiece and features the greatest instrumental music that Tennant/Lowe has ever composed.joe stalin wrote:Wow.. the opening ceremony rocked but the highlight for me was the underworld soundtrack... but close your eyes, could this have been the boys. Musically its so similar to what the boys at their pomp would have put out.. yet now it feels like its on a completely different planet / division to the dirge the PSB have produced recently (invisible / winner).
Is this a sign of how far the boys have fallen ? Or could the boys have actually produced these ?
For those who didn't catch it... the 2 underworld tracks are
And I will Kiss
I could obviously link to Invisible and the dire Winner.. but I can't bring myself to do it. I'd rather Winner was relegated as a bad dream.
Our commentators didn't even mention the music was by composed Underworld (or I didn't listen carefully) and I don't know who they are anyway... The mentioned Mike Oldfield and "Tubular Bells", but him I would have recognised nonetheless! I'm a fan of his music.
Yes, Pet Shop Boys could have come up with something much better - that's my answer to you!
