If it is the bit where you can hear Neil singing ‘I will never let you down’ … I’m pretty sure it is Feel

Hope others who attended can confirm though!

An evening with the Pet Shop Boys and album preview

Acoustics were a bit too loud and basey and kind of drowned Neil’s vocals but, what an album. A return to f… [don’t say it]. Seriously, style wise “Between two islands” would fit nicely. I do hope it was just the acoustics … what I could make out is that he is signing really well and it would be a ...

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

Even more divisive will be The secret of happiness. Very different to anything they’ve ever done before. Almost lounge music. And seemed to go on for a long time. I’ll see if I like it with more listens. Lounge music! Agree with you herts101 and that’s an apt description for Secret. In fact it felt...

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

Well that was a fantastic evening Neil and Chris in great form for the Q and A As for Nonetheless…. The album sounds incredible on first listen. I’d describe it as chunky bass lines layered with soaring strings [emoji7] The production is top notch. Sonically it’s very cohesive … this one has a real...

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

In terms of being reminded of other albums … it has shades of Yes, Release (guitars) and Fundamental. I think only Dancing Star sounded like the Please, Actually era.

Ultimately, It is its own thing … welcome to the Nonetheless era fellow Petheads!

Re: Nonetheless in the press (previews, interviews, etc)

Nice interview - thanks for posting Pete13.

Todd seems to be a genuine fan.

I can't wait to hear A new Bohemia ... A Wichita lineman is such an achingly beautiful song so to be compared to this is a massive plus for me.

Re: Track-by-Track: From Please to Nonetheless

I’m criss-crossing threads here but Rent was an instant classic for me. I almost wore my copy of Actually out with the amount of times I would rewind and play it. The audio quality was absolutely terrible on the little tape player I had but that didn’t take anything away from me loving this song. De...

Re: New BBC 'imagine...' documentary on Pet Shop Boys confirmed for Spring 2024

Really looking forward to this - I hope those cassette tapes get converted / recorded before they degrade... :shock: was thinking similar ... but then when you think that they have kept a hold of them for 42 plus years and are all neatly labelled up ... I am sure they have these captured digitally ...
