Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Looks like another cheap, crap paper sleeve like the "Inner Sanctum" release. The pockets on that one were so tight one had to scratch the discs to remove them. I don't understand why they no longer house discs in proper plastic cases.

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

When "Electric" was released I listened to it TO DEATH for over a year. "Super" I listened to a fair amount. Hotspot maybe four or five times.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

I'm really excited for this but for the love of god I hope they package it in a proper plastic DVD case. The last one of the Super tour in that cheap cardboard package was awful. The the cardboard slots for the discs were too small and there was no way to remove the discs without scratching them. Th...

Re: No more LAYERS please!

There was interview given by Pete Gleadall I think, although it could have been Bob Krushaar, back in "Literally" around the time of "Bilingual" where they mentioned the sentiments you're echoing. In the interview they stated they were always counseling Neil and Chris to strip ba...

Re: How does Jealousy fit in PSB discography chronologically speaking?

Neil has stated on several occasions that at various points during the Parlophone years PSB had mooted the idea of a covers EP but Parlophone never liked the idea. For instance the "Somewhere" single was originally intended to be an EP of show tunes and a "rock classics" EP was s...

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

They have often expressed their admiration of Depeche Mode over the years. "Policy of Truth" or "Lie to Me" would be good choices, but there's many other DM songs that would suit them as well.

Re: Literally and Versus America musings.

As an American kid back then, I can 100% say that EMI sucked in regard to releasing PSB's singles stateside. Many, if not most of their singles weren't released here post Domino Dancing, and even before then it was fairly spotty. I always had to track down the UK imports, which in the late 80s early...

Still waiting for mine in Michigan, USA. Tracking says it was sent to country of destination yesterday, guessing it will arrive in a week to ten days.

Re: Bring him back - I know who I want to produce the next album

Klas Ahlund as he got such a great sound on the Robyn tracks he's worked on. CYA as their mix of Decide was really aggressive. Ditto with Tuff City Kids on their mix of "Undertow." They should give Andrew Dawson another shot as he got a good sound out of them even though many of the songs ...

Re: Hey, Super - that's a really good album

I agree with you that "Super" will be reappraised at some point as one of their better albums; solid pop all the way through.
I disagree about "Electric", it's incredibly engaging from beginning to end, and in my opinion their best effort since "Very."

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Yes, yes, must eat up logistical capacity for CD. 🙄 So what you're saying is I'm being selfish for ordering a CD and having it sent UPS or FEDEX. I think, rather, I'm spending money into the economy during a time when people are losing their jobs because normal services are being scaled back. I som...

Amazon US cancelled mine as well. Just ordered from Amazon UK and am having them send it Global priority; we'll see if that works.

Did anyone else catch where Chris said there could very well be a fourth Stuart Price produced PSB album?

Re: Annually 2020

They probably want to allow a little space between the release of the Monkey business single and the preorder.

Re: US TOUR

Many co-headliners on US double-tickets switch-off which one goes on first and which one plays last.
