Why hasn’t CD Rot eliminated the CD collector market?
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Because it affects a minute fraction of total discs. I've personally never had a single disc rot.

That’s good to know. I haven’t played one of my CDs in probably 6 years or more.

So leaks are probably around the corner? Early listen is always a good thing, when you have the CD on pre-order.
no-one knows how to rip CDs anymore.

I'm sure the name of the new album will be announced this Friday, 25 October 2019 along with the announcement that the "Dreamland" remixes are available. I'm also sure that they will announce the 2020 European "Dreamworld" tour dates...Neil did say they are planning on touring Europe prior to the UK dates in 2020.

I can't believe Super was released more than 3 years ago. And in two days, we will have new songs, and maybe a new album title.

A couple of hours until it's out in NZ. Can't wait!

The B-sides are a pleasant surprise, especially "An Open Mind". The production of a proper album track. "No Boundaries" has a great Pakistani influence, but not particularly strong hooks. The remixes are mostly disappointing - PSB Mix is basically a (short!) extended mix, TWD plod along a bit until the very end, and the Renault mix just adds some 90's/tropical flourishes to the original (I think I liked it the most). So, B-sides are a win, remixes are a no.

A pleasant surprise, what does that mean ? If it's just pleasant it does not seem that good.

Not Neil's finest lyrical hour, especially the middle-8, but lovely production on An Open Mind - have yet to discover the rest of the EP and remixes.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

I love the b-sides.
