Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

The great lost single here is Young Offender - it would have been far better than Yesterday, when i was mad. That jarred at the time and it still does.

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.

I like Pazzo! It's New Order's Tutti Frutti part 2

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

Well, after the Bilingual remaster then definitely not Metamorphosis - it's amazing, although perhaps not cool!

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Re: Reissues project

I also bought Very, Nightlife, Bilingual and Fundamental on vinyl because I did not own them. And it was too pricey to buy on discogs, etc .

Re: Reissues project

Well, I have to admit that the details on Very on the Vinyl reissue are marvellous. It sounds so much fuller and more solid somehow - mind you for some reason it's the land I've probably listened to the least, but side 1 has been an absolute joy - onto side 2 and then Bilingual

Re: After the third album of the triology, I want PSB to do an unexpected movement

Comparing the last two albums to the first albums, I want them them involve other musicians again, I've enjoyed the pure electronic approach, but I want something richer.

Re: Classic Pop magazine

They even got the spelling wrong of Phil Oakey (Oakley) several times in the same piece about the Human League.
And it only has one person reviewing the albums - it might as well be the blog of Wyndham Wallace -

Re: Are we content ?

Wow - that's a long gap! Hopefully there will be a flurry of album releases at that time - 22 songs is good, and there's plenty still unreleased, etc, Still, it's a long wait, if not the longest there's been.

Re: Is there a list of Remixes that feature extra lyrics?

Did you see my Coming? (possibly more mix) and Leaving both have extra lyrics

The 10" of It's alright has

There's a boy standing by a river
There's a girl lying with her lover
There's a statesman standing at a crossroads
There's a soldier polishing his gun
