I still don't know what to say about the album. I don't listen to it quite often, but I think it's not so bad.
I listen to the Agenda more than Hotspot. The Forgotten Child is amazing, I love it so much. I also think "For every moment" should be on the album.

This is how I would rank/group the songs from one to ten with ten being the best value.

10: I don't wanna
9: Will-o-the-wisp, Happy people, Hoping for a miracle, Monkey business, Burning the heather
8: You are the one, Dreamland, Only the dark
7: Wedding in Berlin

That's an average of 8.6. So rounding off, if I was reviewing this album I would give it 9/10 or 4.5/5 stars.

Although there are songs on Electric and Super that I like as much as anything on Hotspot or more, overall I think this is the most consistently good album of the trilogy and one of their best albums. I've been listening to it a lot over the last couple of weeks and I never feel the need to skip a song.

Agreed, the only track that is a bit of a skipper for me is Monkey Buisness.

Hotspot has definitely a synthwave vibe going, esp. Only the dark.

I think the words "Happy People" comes from the Offer Nissim album and song.
Not my kind of music, but the fact PSB collaborated with this artist before Hotspot to me shows they would be aware of the song and album.
The lyrics repeat "I wanna see more happy people".
It shows the contrast of Neil's writing, adding the "living in a sad world" to it.
