Yeah this is why some tracks end up as B-sides

Re: Agenda instead of Hotspot

Hmm, we already have a "Can you make Hotspot better?" thread Agenda is great but it's mostly satire and probably belongs in a musical. If they were to do another Fundy, it'd probably be with more nuance. (PS: if Stupidity is patronising as commentary about the current batch of words leaders, then su...

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Really depends how people are judging "similar", it's a pretty broad question like I said.

Production and sound is one thing, but there is also the theme of "going out" looking for trouble.

A surprisingly clear winner so far.

There quite a difference in "sound" between Electric and Hotspot. Let's not fall into the trap of "it all sounds the same", when we know PSB are quite varied :)

POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

Here's a poll for you

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/V5F9RCQ

It's an open question that has many factors in answering, but thought I'd keep it simple. (also, forum polls can't fit all the albums)

Bit sad Geowayne isn't around for these things, it's hardly the same!

Anyway, let's see....

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

Not a fan of endlessly trying to fix things, since everyone has different expectations of what "mode" of PSB they want.

I can totally understand why people do it!

But can I say, how lucky are we to have such an absolute WEALTH of great tracks and remixes to play around with.

Such fun!

Re: Album closers / final track - do you have a favourite?

Let's face it, their whole career is polarising for fans. Half of us want ballads, the other wants bangers. And yet another half want banging ballads. Some want nuisance, some want electric starkness. Some want the European Union, some want to close down restaurants because there's no one to peel th...

I love the booklet.

There's a calmness to it.

Re: Album closers / final track - do you have a favourite?

While not an album per se, I think the forgotten child is a fantastic closer and quite honestly, would have been a great closer for Hotspot (yes, I know, different producer) with that fantastic last minute of the track. It's definately the stronger track but probably wouldn't fit thematically with ...
