Re: Time to get ready for

Sounds very interesting. Can’t wait to hear it! So there is a common theme/tune/melody that is repeated throughout, in different forms. Would you say the tune is memorable? Do you remember it after listening to it? Are Neils vocals sung or spoken word? I don't remember anything, except a sort of me...

New West End girls cover

For the sake of information, and to all the completists and analytics I spotted a new West End girls cover.
My Spotify radar suggested it to me.

It's obvious that Chris is trying to obscure his acting performance! ; :lol: :lol: :wink:

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

What you're forgetting is the fanbase used to be fresh faced teenagers from the 1980's/90's with no worries or responsibilities in the world, and an air of wonder and hope. Now we're all 50-ish grumpy bastards who've had all our youthful dreams destroyed. We've earned the right to whinge. :lol: (an...

Re: Paninaro Magazine

I have the original Paninaro magazine. My bigger brother was a Paninaro back in the '80s
Nothing to do with this one.

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

My only quibble with Hotspot is the sequencing of "You are the one" after "Will-o-the-wisp". On first listen it was just a massive let down. Wedding in Berlin is a great closing track. I really like it. I agree @ 98%. YATO should be track 3 or 4. WIB is a good & funny closin...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

It's a Pet Shop Boys album, so by definition it is great. Thematically, it's very coherent, but it subsides a bit towards the end for me. It shares a lot in common with Super. One was about getting out of your head, the other about just getting out. Funnily enough, while I think Electric is one of ...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

I always get the sense, that, whatever their initial intentions when the recording process for a new album starts, their instincts kick in, softening the edges of whatever the 'manifesto' for an album was, usually for the better. Hence if you 'love' one PSB album, you're likely to at least 'enjoy' ...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

Hate to burst your bubble, but Elysium doesn't reflect LA at all (I've lived here for 27 years after leaving the UK). What it does reflect is a bland, homogenous production that permeates through a lot of middle of the road American music. When I first heard of an L.A. album back to those days, I d...

This is exactly the first thing that came to my mind.
To be honest it is also the first thing I'd do if I were them.

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Although to me it doesn't feel as long as it obviously has been, I've clearly been on the rollercoaster a long, long time. I don't think PSB really put a foot wrong prior to and including 'Behaviour'. 'Behaviour' marked the peak for me. It was grown up electronic music and as I have said before, it...
