Suburbia (The Full Horror) comes to mind...

Re: Are we content ?

Greetings, Having just discovered (excuse the pun) Electric Light Orchestra's "Discovery" album this week, and having felt compelled to listen to it on repeat, I'm actually all in favour of Jeff Lynne producing a Pet Shop Boys album. "Discovery" is a great album, and actually reminds me a lot of a P...

Re: Are we content ?

I think I would be content now. We wanted them to have another go at something in the vein of Behaviour (i.e. Elysium) We wanted another electronic album, mildly Introspective-esque (i.e. Electric) We had Super which wasn't particularly great, but probably appreciated by those asking for an EDM albu...

Re: *YOUR* Perfect PSB 'Best of' Album

I'm going to assume that "you have to sequence the tracks in your preferred order" means that you think it's "a track sequence that makes most sense to you as an album", as opposed to "list the 12 songs in order of personal preference". A1. Left To My Own Devices (7" version) A2. Can You Forgive Her...

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

Either Winner or The Only One.

Probably Winner on account of it being a single, thus more public, thus more embarrassing.

So maybe Very is going to have content on 3 sides instead of 4? The fourth side will probably have at least absolutely nothing on it.
It would be cute if it just had Postscript on it.

Re: Reissues project

It's showing as a 2LP set at https://www.wowhd.com.au/very-2018-rema ... 0295823085 with a higher price than the other two.

Interesting... will watch and see.

Re: Strange feeling...

When the quality of their output at the turn of the millennium, my "fandom" waned. With Disco 4 and the Pop Art singles, it sprung back into life. Fandom isn't a permanent static thing. I wasn't a big fan of Super (for example) but the string of great and diverse albums before it, from Fundamental t...

Re: Imagine PSB get Nobel Peace Prize for inspiring Kim Jong-un to change things to the better?

Greetings Greendrake, The song actually gives a pretty good account of Kim Jong-Un, IMO. In a sense, Donald Trump is giving Kim "an out", so he can leave despotic governance aside, and help his nation become a normal country, or even merge with South Korea to form Korea if he really wants to get out...

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

Greetings, Even the drum basis is underwhelming. If you go to a club, it's an easy listening sound to have a drink and talk to Friends but nothing particulary special. It's funny you say that, because the one time I played it while DJ'ing, I played the D.T. After mix really early on in the night, to...

Re: 25 years of Can You Forgive Her

Greetings, The CD single was initially very perplexing for me, since the Canadian release was basically the UK CD2. So, no Rollo mixes, no Hey Headmaster, and most frustrating of all, no actual single version of the single. And of course no internet to explain why this was. There was a similar issue...

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.
It would come a noteworthy second.... coming in behind the ultimate Winner.
