Re: Best option for 4 th single?

people like to get into the lyrics of the music they are listening to IMO. and as apparently the only middle aged man on this forum I might not have the best chart sense but I suspect Wilo the wisp isnt a good choice. I think you people need to step back from your bangers and mash requirements. Only...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

All of us are long time fans who have the ability to say we dont like something and it not be a threat to anyone. quite frankly I am a bit surprised by how blase I am about this particular album. I also say its possible...just possible.... that alot more might feel the same way, but they are kinda s...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

My complaints with "you are the one" and "only the dark" is that they are surprisingly slight vocally and backing track wise. I am really surprised vocally or even backing track wise they didnt build both those tracks more. they stay flat the whole way thru for the most part. if you heard one chorus...

Re: Happy people

its my fav track off the album. When the bass line starts at the beginning it makes me think I am in a movie theater in the 80's and the opening credits to a 80's comedy movie is starting.

Re: Best option for 4 th single?

People here tend to only think in terms of upbeat songs as singles... I think “only the dark” would be the only viable option quite frankly... I find most the songs on the album to be slight but gorgeously produced. I think many of the upbeat songs are quirky to a degree that might be a bit offputti...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

The vocal to Monkey Business is definetly double tracked. If you listen with headphones you can hear where he didnt nail the double especially on the shouty parts.

I LOVE the description of Wilo the wisp as an electro trance monster. It is!

Re: The New Album Info Thread

No those parts need to go also. I am talking about the 2 parts where the drums cut out and neil is singing with the beautiful synth wave in the background. love those parts of the song

Re: Apologies to Liverpool

doing a greatest hits tour is very smart....I suspect its going to be that from here on out. give the people what they want, and they can in a ways be forever young by just cranking out the nostalgia from back in the day. theres always an excitement about those type of tours. even though I am the to...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I was saying "wedding in berlin" has a couple really beautiful parts, if they would just get rid of the monotonous synth riff and just made it like the pretty parts all the way thru. you know the part where the synth riff drops out and neil is singing with the beautiful strings. it should have been ...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

People were saying such amazing things about "Hoping for a miracle", but I have to say in my opinion, one "Numb" was enough thank you. the song just meanders and wallows and then when it finally hits the chorus, you are thinking surely this cant be it, the chorus...can it? the words "hoping for a mi...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Surprisingly the title I hated the most "Wilo the wisp" has turned into one of my favorite all time PSB album openers. its huge and epic with multiple parts where it almost sounds like a play with a first second and third act. Happy people sounds like very/Bilingual awesomeness. I also am enjoying "...

Re: Snippets

I only allowed myself one....wedding in berlin because it seems to be divisive.I figured, ah so what. at first listen it reminds me of "For your own good" with a lighter arrangement. a tad monotonous, but I will see if when i hear the final version if it changes my mind that is a very odd decision t...

They have such a nice life! can you imagine them biking around berlin? they should video their bike rides and food experiences. they dont work their media enough IMO with fun stuff like that
