Final results of Rating Project poll for "Cricket Wife"

The final results are in for my "Rating Project" poll for "Cricket Wife." I'm afraid it didn't do very well, earning an average rating of only 4.902, placing it at #356 among 381 Pet Shop Boys songs. It's interesting to note, however, that the most common rating for the song was ...

Rating Project for "Cricket Wife"

Hey there! I believe I've waited long enough to run a new Rating Project poll for the most recently released Pet Shop Boys song, "Cricket Wife." I realize that not everyone who ordered Annually 2021 , accompanied by the "Cricket Wife" CD single, may have received it by now. But a...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I'm pleased to report that my "replacement" copy of Annually 2021 (to replace the one that was reportedly returned to Digital Stores), complete with "Cricket Wife," arrived via courier (UPS) this evening. At last! Whew!

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

How would you consider having a public archive with good-quality PDF scans of all the Annually/Literally issues? In theory, I like this idea. But it must be noted that it would be a form of copyright violation, and anyone who would undertake to do this (aside from the Boys themselves, of course, or...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Actually, several hours after I emailed the PSB management company to complain about this situation, I received an email (just a few minutes ago) from a represented who said that he would try to obtain a replacement copy for me, but he said there were no guarantees at this point. He would do his be...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings Wayne, Keep pushing the line, don't give up. Insist that if it was delivered back to the warehouse then *your* copy exists *there*. It hasn't vanished into thin air, and you don't mind at all that they're re-sending stock that's previously been posted. Retro. :) Actually, several hours af...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Does anyone have contact information for PSB management. I thought I would send them copies of all my email concerning the issues I have had. The email address for their management is info@beckerbrown.com. I wrote to them this morning describing my experience and quickly received a response (probab...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I received the same response. Still waiting on my refund. I got PayPal involved because they did not respond within 48 hours as they had promised. I have received my refund for 'Discovery'. Just curious what happened to all the copies that got returned. Yes, I'm curious about that as well. It sound...

Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

If it was good they wouldn’t have released it this way. The boys aren’t dumb. I think it all depends on what we mean by "good." If we mean "commercial" or having mass appeal, then, no, it's not very good. But if we mean something that's more artistically ambitious, something tha...

Re:

If Neil is playing with time in order to write meaningfully about death and memory, it then makes sense for his mother (assuming it is about her) to be able to fly in her imagination to collect his father from the past. So she’s not young again, but rather looking down and observing a memory. “Not ...
