4/5
It's a very positive review.
Reviewer thinks PSB belong in the list of British composer duos like Lennon/McCartney, Jagger/Richards and Morrissey/Marr.
Hotspot is a PSB album by the books, but a damn well written book. Yes, it's just a regular PSB album, but what other artist can say that after nearly 40 years?

Here I have a question for native English speakers.

Does "gay" in the noun phrase "gay music icons" (as used in the article above) refer to "music" or "music icons/ icons"?

It is arguably a ridiculous phrase, but given music can’t have a sexuality it must be the latter.
Woof.

Greetings,

As daft as the phrasing is, I take it to mean that they are regarded as musical icons within the gay community.

I've heard Kylie Minogue and Madonna described in similar terms, despite them not being gay.

Retro. :)

It means they make happy music for happy people.
