I was underwhelmed by Give stupidity a chance on first listen, but it has grown on me quite a bit after a few more. Reminds me a bit of Winner, musically.

Mine? Boy Strange. x
Noooooo..! I love “Boy Strange”..! I only wish the piano melody at the end went on for an extra minute. If that was the case, it’d make my Top PSB 20.

Beauty is in the eye (ear) and all that jazz..!
More strobes and BANGING, please!

"Footsteps" for me. I cannot listen to it...skip it as soon as I hear the first few notes.

Indeed! We all love what we love and variety is key! 8) (since I became a DIE-HARD FAN in '90/'91, Boy Strange is the only track I'll consistently skip out of all their hundreds of tracks!! :P

It always puts me to sleep before I even get a chance to have an opinion on it.

West End Girls

Neil being elitist with his opinions about class and history. Ramming it down our throats as always.

Also he rhymes “stone” with “home”, which is very simplistic.

Sucks to be you, then, when this is the one song they'll always be performing! Wha-wha, elitism.
P.S. Sorry if this was ironic. Hard to tell on the internet! In which case, I lol'd hard.

Disco potential, its just anoying and I really hate it. If you ask me, Atom splitting and Legacy are amazing.
