When's the mashup coming?
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

It's obvious it's not a big track to be a single.

I'm really liking it. Sounds great pumped up through headphones. There's definitely a bit of "Casting a shadow" in there but a lot more banging!

It's a PILE-DRIVER!

I've been hand-jiving round my office for the last half an hour.

If it is the Super equivalent of Shouting in the evening, then I am going to love this album.

Love this track. I downloaded it walking from my office to the car park, and had my first listen on the M23. Cranked up loud it is amazing!

I sense a tiny part of Moby's 'Go' in the track too :)

This is a good thing....

and the Boys are currently trending on Twitter!!
As I pointed out at about ten past one

Seriously, after a few listens, is this the best they can come up with?

It's a mess.

CDM and AOL are fantastic tunes both released 23 years ago and they have stood the test of time

Come on Neil and Chris, you can do better than this

This sounds huge! The production, if you get it from iTunes is fabulous, it's huge sounding but "smoother". It's has a whole host of PSB qualities, even an "It's a Sin" quality. This sounds like very high quality trance from the late 90's except with much better production and bottom end (bass). It sounds like that great collaboration we all wanted when Paul Oakenfold was at his peak that never happened.

I'm not super impressed. Its OK but I'll let it off if the rest of the album doesn't follow this song's direction.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

It really sounds great on headphones (the iTunes version), and while still quite loud, it is NOT squashed dynamically like Electric is, which bodes well for the album as far as sonics are concerned..

Am I the only one who thinks that "Inner Sanctum" is somehow connected to "Fluorescent"?

If I remember correctly, PSB decided at short notice to drop most of the lyrics from Fluorescent. To me, it seems as if these lyrics have possibly been recycled in "Inner Sanctum".

I don't know, Fluorescent sounds more like it is addressing people who are actually in the spotlight, while Inner Sanctum speaks more to the average Joe who imagines being in the spotlight while listening.

I could be wrong but doesn't the Indo mix of Fluorescent contain some previously unused lyrics?
