No idea why i found that exciting but it was. Their first ever proper entry.

The next one that was aired features West End Girls in a 20 second clip. A climber of 14 places to number 9.

Always remember how scorching hot it was all Summer when the Very era began. One of their finest moments.

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

If there were a race to bet on where the field was made up of singles were the B sides were better, Before would be the hot pot favourite.

Ive never been keen on it. Its a bit wine bar music. It would probably fit better on Elysium. It sold quite a decent amount though.

Re: SUPER (2 years later, we'll see its popularity)

Just because it rates near the bottom of the list, doesnt mean its poor. Its just very difficult for anything to dislodge a lot of PSB albums.

I'd rate it similar to @PopArt list above. Although 'Please' would be much higher. Theres only Release and Elysium i dont listen to.

Re: Poll ends soon on your favorite "post-millennial" PSB album

Great question. Its between 3 imo. Fundamental, Yes and Electric. I went for Fundamental. It could have been any of the three really. Super at 4 , Elysium 5 and poor old Release at 6.

Re: Expectations

The producer never really bothers me. Although the only one i wasnt keen on before the start was Dawson. Even though he only had to work with the songs he was dealt, i find Elysium their 2nd worst album after Release and that was mainly self produced, wasnt it? So a good producer is vital. Price has...

Re: The Apple in Neil's & Chris' eyes

63-68 The Beatles knocked out some awesome records. The Boy Band guff is poor and i'm not keen on the more rock-styled songs but most cd1 of 67-70 is nigh on perfect. Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Get Back, Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Lady Madonna, Fool on the Hill, Eleanor Rigby, Paperback Writ...

Re: Reissues project

The re-issued re-issues did better this time around than in 2001 :shifty: No they didn’t. Chart position wise they did but you only need to sell about 750 copies to get a top 75 placing. They’d have sold a lot more that 2000 copies each back in 2001 when you needed 10000+ for a top 40 10000+ for to...

I think some of you are over analysing this lol. It just looks like something they would have done years ago before social media. Just like Annually is.

Re: Oh, my word - what does it take? *Rant* - apologies in advance.

Why would they get offered one knowing full well they'd turn it down? Id guess they've turned it down previous anyway.

Tbh, i dont think celebrities should get one unless its for charity work.They should be given to general members of the public for their services throughout their lives.
