Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

I actually really like the music to Groovy, It's bloody good, but yes, the lyrics are pretty atrocious. Agree re:lyrics. Although the lyrical vibe is classic PSB "going out music", it's embarrassingly self-centric. However Groovy is placed immediately after Twenty-Something ... so I think there is ...

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

Just Read that Dogmatic, was on the list of suggested titles for Introspective. Got to say I’m liking this title a lot for the next album. Hmm, quite interesting! Not sure what type of album PSB would suit.... Introspective obviously.... but besides that - Fundy? Bilingual was surprisingly opiniona...

Re: In the studio: 21 songs for the new album so far

People are so melodramatic. Do you guys seriously prefer the smug Brian Higgins who just transplanted his Xeno/Girls Aloud on them, mostly unsuccessfully, over someone who grew up a fan and who knows their music by heart, to the point of knowing exactly what works for them and even emulating it per...

Re: In the studio: 21 songs for the new album so far

I'm happy for them to finish the trilogy.

Fundy->Yes->Elysium->Electric is such a strong run of albums.

The trilogy will be terrific too. Super is fun, but hopefully the next will be something different again.

Re: Cardi B tells guest he looks a Pet Shop Boy

So completely meaningless to me for a modern 'artist' produced and promoted beyond their talent to be referencing any actual musician. Did you say the same when Lady Gaga joined them at the Brits back in '09? Pretty much. They wanted Kylie and that would of been more fitting/memorable. Although I g...

Re: Appreciation Thread for HCYETBTS Album Version

I prefer this track for the album.

The single mix is fine, but too groovy for Behaviour. Best thing able the single is the video :)

I like the album version being a bit retro too.... suits

Whoa 12 is hard to pick. They've had some top B sides as always, but a far higher strike rate.

Re: "Winner" - the love and hate battle of this forum

I like it

The poll question makes you choose between two extremes.

I'm sure many people are indifferent or don't mind the song (as opposed to outright hate or love)

Re: Least Embarrassing PSB Song

I regularly drive down the street with What Keeps Mankind Alive booming with a subwoofer, all windows open. Hahahahaha. Its dreadful and should have been on the other list, I hate it that much I had eradicated from my memory. I feel the same about if love were all. Yet this performance is superlati...

Re: Elysium vocals

I tend to think the opposite.... his voice has good depth on many of the tracks. EG: breathing space, Leaving,

Probably the worst vocals for me would be on tracks like Construct, where the squeakiness is over-played.

Re: Are we content ?

I'm expecting another Super-style fun release, for sure. It's so easy for them to do. But I feel like Neil may be building up a few Behaviour/Fundy/Elysium tracks for a more formative/substantial release. It'd be what they save their energy for. Also, I fully expect their last album to be two discs....

Re: I saw Neil today

Well in my life I have no public profile and don't need to deal with people as a public figure...... yet even then manage to periodically be "off off" and infuriate/upset people on a regular basis! ...... cannot blame N&C for having bad days at all. Dealing with people is hard, especially if it's im...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

lol for years ppl have been asking for Neil to write something and when he does..

The regular release price is fair. Limited Editions will be Limited Editions.
