Re: Reissues project

If it includes Relentless surely they would have mentioned it, wouldn't they? The original recording is so layered it probably needs 2 discs in order to sound better. And possible sound quality issues on such a recording might be the reason why they left it as the final release of the set.

Re: Strange feeling...

...Been a fan since '93 and today I gave away for the first time a PSB item (that being "Pandemonium", which I never liked at all). That plus having yet to buy the new FLs gives me a strange feeling about my loyalty... So you still have a copy of Disco 2?! Or Absolutely Fabulous? Or New York City B...

Re: Strange feeling...

Never liked "Pandemonium" for that very reason - studio vocals are very up in the mix and the effect is so annoying. When I get a live album I want to hear clear live vocals... The FLs - I bought mp3s of the "new" stuff but there's really nothing earth-shattering there, except for "Ring Road", which...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Night on BBC Four?

Not sure I'd like to hear again Neil recalling how they met, "and the rest is history".Documentaries and interviews and reissues have been pretty exhaustive now. Having said that, "Exhaustive" could be a good title for such a documentary, or even for the planned final box set!

Re: Disco 2 reissue on vinyl ??

Disco 1 definitely deserves a remaster. It's an important page of their catalogue, not just for its concept, but also because in some ways it merges better than "Please" their european dance sensibility and their early american influences. Disco 2 makes sense if combined with Relentless, while volum...

I think that having this re issued is pointless.... Especially starting for Disco 2 and not Disco 1... There are other records that could be released on vinyl such as Battleship Potemkin or Closer to heaven...
First one should be Alternative, by miles.

Re: "he came by to look at my synthesizer"

Has Naughty Chris ever commented about that line on "Twentieth Century" which sounds like "Stay with me, dysentery"?

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

I'm still up for "More", which was also rumoured as a title at some point (around the time when there was talk of a double album).

Hmm... not sure about that title. A bit crass. And sounds too much like I'm with stupid. How about something like Idiocracy? You can use it boys I don't mind.
Agree, sounds like an ABBA thing. Hopefully it's a working title. But "Chance" would be a good title album.

With Price at the helm they could sound like The Killers - "The last to die" showed that.

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

The song in itself is bland and unmemorable, but the sparkling production saves it. The best from Bilingual era relates very much to NY '90s house and disco - I mean stuff like MAW, Tenaglia, Mateo & Matos and all the rest of it - and I think they should have followed that direction for the entire a...

Re: Which Single Package Would Be Most Miserablism to Listen To In Toto

OT: "Endearing" is the perfect title for the final album.
