Re: An evening with the Pet Shop Boys and album preview

Ultimately, It is its own thing … welcome to the Nonetheless era fellow Petheads! Thanks for your summaries, they've got me revved up! I've uploaded the audio from the stream. I assume this isn't copyrighted or whatever so I'm giving it to you all. Hopefully this doesn't cause any issues with the a...

Re: Record Collector - May 2024

Well, RC has at once said PSB can't produce a dud album, and also that Nightlife is rated at 40%, a fail far below a pass. I find this contradiction quite silly, not least because Nightlife is brim full of interesting idea, textures, and terrific POP. Sure, *some* people barf at Footsteps. But other...

OK I am getting distinct WebSleuths vibes here :lol:

Well done finding that!

Re: Record Collector - May 2024

It's nice of them to say PSB can't produce a "dud disc", but they've rated a few of them 2/5 stars :lol:

Haven't seen it yet, but It's A Sin was a cover version (albeit with production) and In Private wasn't even put on an album. Maybe not up there as a Dusty-style colab?

in Australia there is an current affairs program that used to unironically use this song whenever there was a retail themed story.

Imagine first holding Actually in your hands, seeing their suited faces, the yawn, taking them home with anticipation, and spinning up One More Chance - woah.

Terrific opener. Slides perfectly into the opening chimes of What Have I... ❤️
