Re: I asked an AI to create a new Pet Shop Boys song, this is what it came up with

The AI covers have died down a bit...but the ones with AI "Neil" singing this or that popular song have been mostly totally convincing, its a powerful technology, I have been creating alot of George Michael singing songs of the 30's 40's 50 big band music, and the tech is so good you liter...

Re: “Dancing to Roxy and Bowie”: Reviewing the Pet Shop Boys, Nonetheless

Whoa! thanks for uploading this! at first I didnt notice the track by track included. FINALLY someone describing each track! I also love that he admits he wasnt crazy about loneliness. that kind of gives his review a sort of legitimacy he isnt some fanboy....and I love what I am reading! especially ...

Re: Nonetheless in the press (previews, interviews, etc)

Their song descriptions are usually off a bit. I remember they described "Ring Road" as a rock track and somebody eleses business as sounding like Motown? not sure I remember that correct but I remembered when I heard it thinking...um what

Re: Nightlife - time for reappraisal?

I felt there were a few great songs let down by the orchestra arrangement like Closer to Heaven and Drunk and some weak songs propped up by a nice arrangement such as For your own good and Radiophonic. and then just some cringey stuff sprinkled in like Boy Strange and the only one in denial.

I liked that tune from the barbi movie, dance the night away. I feel like music wise Dancing Star could have worked in that scene as good also

Re: New single „Dancing star“ (digital April 3rd / CD May 3rd)

Its not necessarily selling sex so much as that happens to the the style of apparel that ballet dancers wear which has always tended to be kind of skimpy. I suspect there are many people who go to the ballet who are straight/gay and see beyond the costumes and enjoy the show for its purpose, dance. ...

Re: Having a beef with Elton John

I find it hard to believe Elton actually told them it was time to hang it up due to a chart position. that sounds an odd thing to say given the ups and downs all artists have including Elton.

Re: New single „Dancing star“ (digital April 3rd / CD May 3rd)

Regarding Neils vocal performance, I felt something was a little off on loneliness but I think its just that the vocal sounds too in your face somehow like it has too much gain on it. the first two lines of "if Jesus had a sister" his voice does start off weak....I am surprised they let it...

Re: New single „Dancing star“ (digital April 3rd / CD May 3rd)

"If Jesus had a sister" is one of the reasons why Neil is such a great lyricist. he will approach a subject from a interesting less trodden on way. my take on the lyrics is he is saying there was too many yes men in Jesus's life and maybe there needed to be someone closer to home who could...

Re: New single „Dancing star“ (digital April 3rd / CD May 3rd)

After the sort of odd start with loneliness for me, they are back on track! this sounds effortless and breezy and dancey and symphonic like their best earlier songs...and they are playing to us I think, the die hard fans with the arrangement. I am properly excited for the new album especially with t...

Re: New album Nonetheless

My problem with Wedding in Berlin was two fold.

A very beautiful and quiet type with a loud simpleton. I’m not trying to be silly. They sh...
