Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

Is it just me or does anyone else think Always on my mind is starting to sound a little, shall I say, diluted? It starts off ok live with that magical brass riff but then I feel Neil's vocals turn it into something quite dire. I must admit having been at one of the first batch of ROH shows in 2016 a...

Re: Do you have the feeling of a "non surprising" album to come?

I'm imagining an electronic poppy & bouncy album…perhaps they finally get to use their album title Bounce.
Actually, i prefer Closed Pet Shop Boys.(defining the end of production with Pricey…nothing else).

Twenty-something and a poem

Loving the read of One Hundred lyrics and a poem by Mr Tennant. Good selection of lyrics & even though a lot of them are self explanatory it's nice to finally have an in depth view from the master himself. My best lyric and this is probably because it was not included in the final cut of the song is...

Re: Reissues project

I bought Please to Bilingual reissues way back in 2001. I have only bought Nightlife to Elysium 2017/2018 reissues & Please Actually Introspective & Release Vinyl reissues & will buy Bilingual on Vinyl. Not keen on buying all reissues again, my Actually & Very 2001 reissues carry a lot of weight wit...

Are we content ?

Not trying to make this sound a downer but have you been, are you or will you ever be content with the catalogue of Pet Shop Boys? I for one would love to see them continue to do what they do best for the foreseeable future but realistically the time will come when Chris unplugs his keyboard & Neil ...

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

The things we learn. Loved Always on my mind ever since I first heard it on the Elvis tribute show and never knew that it was the release of the "Remix" vinyl that got it to number 1 in its second week, resulting in it being at the top for 4 weeks. Found that out in the Q & A section. Rick Astley, ...

Re: Reviving the PSB Song Game

To face the truth Certainly fits well within Behaviour. I remember my first listen to this and that was a time of pure heartache for me. Was just trying to bounce back after a failed long distance relationship with a beautiful Irish girl and my eyes were always red. Beautiful wistful sounds make a p...

Re: Introspective 2018 CD Remaster reviews

Mmmm...Decision of grandeur!!!! I came to the conclusion before ALL 2017/2018 re-issues were released that I will only buy Nightlife thru to Elysium on Cd and Please, Actually, Introspective, Bilingual & Release on Vinyl. I used to be a stickler of buying virtually everything they released. Having b...

The Apple in Neil's & Chris' eyes

Having found a new found love of the music from The Beatles. I was just wondering if Neil & Chris were ever fans of The Fab Four ? Thought I heard somewhere, Neil in particular, grew up liking The Beatles & have seen him being interviewed wearing a Beatles T-Shirt but no other references have been m...

Re: Showing some love for Construct

Love this song. Have done so since watching a live version on YouTube before it was released. It's just another example of how well the boys integrate another composition & blend it into there own! I find it very British....love the line "drinking tea like Tony Benn". For me the climax of the song a...

Re: The Catalogue Interviews - put your questions to Julian Mendelsohn!

“I love you”?? Really...Can’t hear it! Just think it’s a sound effect but wanting to know what techniques were used to get it....From the fairlight probably!!
