Re: The PSB produced songs during the Stuart Price Era - Your opinions?

I have a list of what I think is every PSB produced song during the Stuart Price Era. If I've missed any please let me know and I'll add them in. The whole A man from the future and Musik are missing. So are the new songs from My beautiful Laundrette (except for No boundaries ). I can't speak about...

Re: Further Listening 2011-2012 missing tracks

More specifically it's when they BEGAN work on them. Most of these tracks end up being finished around the time of original release. I don't remember it that way, I'm pretty sure Neil said that "songs are included according to when they were recorded" like Harry wrote. Are you sure about it daveid?...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

Thats ok. to each their own. I just dont like overused cliche teen pop style lyrics is all. you are the one, the only one,and all that. Neil was def on automatic pilot with those 2 tracks. Musically Hotspot is not that bad at all, quite good at times. Lyrically I agree with you, the album is not ev...

Re: Behind the scenes of “Monkey business” (VIDEO)

Oh I'd love to know the name of the old Italian film that inspired them It's not old at all. It is "La grande bellezza" by Paolo Sorrentino, winner of the Oscar (Academy Award) in 2014. Why does the director say it's from the sixties then? Oh sorry, I didn't get it from this video, I read a Neil's ...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

Terrible. It is a bit shit isn't it? It seems not, according to the comments here. I'm kinda original on liking PSB stuff. I adore Before... I'm trying to be a little bit deeper and explain my "terrible": - melody: boring and monotonous - lyrics: not so emotional to me - production (arrangement): s...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

Some say Wedding in Berlin is fun. I have to say it isn’t. It’s an abomination. It sits alongside One and One Make Five, The Night I Fell in Love, Happiness and Hold On as some of the most cringeworthy garbage they’ve produced. Left as the final track on Hotspot it would almost ruin what is otherwi...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

I prefer it being at the end. I have the feeling that the album ends with Burning the Heather and then the end credits start to roll, while the performance is over. It has that "let's just relax and stop being serious" kind of mood when you are aware of the great job you did. I stop being serious to...

Re: Your favourite Hotspot Instrumental?

Oh, I simply Imagine in my mind that the one on the train is a girl instead of a man. Heh.. I did try that. But girls are not called " handsome " or " chap "s. And they don't become " respectable with a wife ". Sorry but this time Neil wanted to be perfectly explicit about the genders. Ok, I agree ...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

I really love it. I agree that is the best track on the album. I like also the way it is followed by I don't wanna. This is the best part of this album. The middle bit reminds me also of Hit Music coda. The vocals are well produced, the chord change is really various but still catchy. The melody is ...
