I got all excited to see a Canadian news site mentioning PSB. Sadly if looks like this guy phoned in his less than in depth review...not only is the album name wrong, he clearly doesn't know that every album they've released have been one word titles....music journalism at its poorest....sigh.

Performance on TV with all the dancers from the video. However the bad camera work makes it all look flat and boring.

Had it been me, the camera would focus on the dancer in white clothes haha. He's hot as summer.

Any word about the producer of At Rock Bottom? Is it (hopefully) another album session leftover, like An Open Mind and Decide were?
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

Interesting, forthcoming CD/12inch have "made in UK" statement on it?

Rumour has it that it is not part of the Price recordings for Hotspot.

I do think there will be more to come.

Including The lost room, maybe?

I guess At rock bottom would be from the same series as The forgotten child (which bears the line "We were under attack reaching rock-bottom").

No one's discussing the new b-side?
I have it. I don't want to judge it too much on first listen, but one thing is I can see why it's allotted to being a b-side and I think others would agree. Mainly because of the subject matter but also the overall quality is somewhat unassuming.
At 3:16 it feels short to me, but it's a nice song for the catalogue.

Is it a Price production?
up-tempo or a slow track?
How is it compared to the album?
