Re: Rating: "Inside a dream"

IMO, best track together with Fluorescent. That moment at 2:14 sounds so beautiful and classic PSB to me. Unfortuantely, these moments are very rare nowadays.

CHVRCHES! (anyone heard their fabulous remix of MSMR's Hurricane?)
Röyksopp (anyone heard their fabulous cover of DM's Ice Machine?)
Vince Clarke (anyone heard...)

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Together

I find these trancy supersaw synth sounds are something I already didn't like 20 years ago. And when I listen to Vocal I'm afraid Electric will sound similar. :(

Re: Neil on Hatred

But if you listen to songs like "Winner" I can't help but think he also lost a lot of his hatred over the years. Embarrassing song, IMHO.

Re: New Dance album - 'Electric'?

Now THAT'S much more PSB than Elysium. And the best: When my son was born four years ago, Yes was new and soo good and the sun was shining. Now in July my second son will be born and I might have another great PSB album to listen to. I'm excited.

Re: Is Chris an aspie?

If you look at this video the answer has to be "No". I haven't seen Chris being so talkative in public ever again. The complete opposite of his image. Maybe he didn't like himself how he acted and in the process of finding their image they soon agreed to develop it into something else, who knows. ht...

Re: Single most ecstatic moment in PSB catalogue

For me "I want a lover" is full of these moments. The dramatic intro with its synth riff and so unusual use of a trombone (!) the synth pad held all through each verse, the percussions marching the bridge with the pad off and the noisy snare kicking in and this dramatic sequence of the three played ...

Re: Year 3 after "Yes": Yea or Nay?

My opinion on 'Yes' hasn't changed since I heard it for the first time: It's a great album, in some ways their best. I just listen to PSB a lot less in general nowadays, which doesn't make them or their music worse. After being a fan for 25 years I can still appreciate what they do without listening...

Re: VCMG / CL??

PSB often are associated with Minimal. Probably just because of their artwork. Their music is the complete opposite in most cases. I guess Chris could sound like it if he tried for a while. But I also guess he doesn't want to sound like it, so it won't happen. VCMG is no way like Relentless. Vince d...

Re: Final poll results: supporting a PSB/hip-hop collab for

I voted 'No' Firstly, hip hop is not my cup of tea. I am fine with an occasional rap like in West End girls, We all Feel Better in the Dark or One things leads... Secondly, (and more important) people might think that PSB are only collaborating with more successful people in order to gain some of th...

Re: Which ONE song should be used to promote Format?

For me it should have been Delusions of Grandeur as well. It's SO Pet Shop Boys. Something with more attention to sound design instead of just triggering 909 drum sounds would have been great in the new version.
