Legacy is a good song but almost everyone was moaning about it.

Anyway, it doesn't mean Effen is right with his opinion about Weding in Berlin.
True.

I think you're all going to love it.

Re: Bridge in West End Girls video

Hi all, I know this is a really sad question but does anyone know where the bridge is in said song lol? I have been to London so many times and many more to come and walked along loads of bridges but can't find that one 🤭 Sorry in advance lol. The bridge is between verses 2 and 3 I think. Well, I l...

I hope it's more a legacy than a bourgeois construct.
Structurally, it’s much more Happiness than Legacy.

Hot take: I love Happiness on Super (in fact, it's one of my favourite tracks on the album)
Will I like WIB?
Ha! I like Happiness, too...so, I dunno! I guess you'll find out in six weeks!!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thanks for the write up Effen. A couple from me: Neil has talked about the album having a distinct Hansa sound. This isn’t evident in Dreamland or Heather... Do you recognise it in the other tracks, and if so how would you describe it? Is it a new sound for them? Dreamland and Heather are obviously...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Against all the odds, I’m beginning to enjoy how bonkers/daft/ridiculous WIB is. I still don’t think it fits on the album, though. Narratively or otherwise. I do hope, however, that you all hear it, love it and think I’m an idiot. Could you all hurry up and hear it soon, please. I NEED TO TALK ABOUT...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I just hope I haven't overly hyped Hotspot. Maybe I've should have just said it was 'pretty good, I suppose'. Bear in mind, I think This used to be the future is one of the greatest things they've ever done. What does that tell you? Nothing, but I feel better for saying it. I guess, we all like, exp...

I just noticed the location of the hole. Probably looks good when you put it on a record player.
Haha! Good spot.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

The review is back up. I hope it doesn't overhype you. There's a certain thrill in hearing an album early, like going to a movie premiere, where it's easy for that excitement to translate as EVERYTHING IS BRILLIANT. I don't think that's the case here at all, but please bear that in mind as you read ...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Hi Effen and thanks for your review a couple of questions: a. Was your copy an actual release copy with all the artwork or a promo advance copy no artwork? b. Will you be using any of the songs on your upcoming film? YO a. I was provided a link to a watermarked stream/download link. 44.1khz/320kbps...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thank you. Which songs are the worst on the album? At the risk of sounding hyperbolic (surely not!), aside from track ten, for me, this is corker after corker. Some I prefer to others, of course, but they’re all GOOD. If I had to choose a least favourite it would probably be Dreamland, but I’ve gro...

Thanks again for these observations. Has any of it ended up making its way into your series?
Not yet, but I’m doing my best to get something in there. I may need to request instrumentals, as the channel might be resistant to Neil and Chris. PSB by stealth.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

How did you go from one star in the car to nearly 5 stars ? Did it take a lot of listen, or was it much better on the second one ? The sound is dirty and very 80's or 90's, but overall does it still sound modern (as Super) ? What you said about Wedding in Berlin looks like David Lynch's work. You s...
