Re: "Super" produced by Stuart Price but programmed by PSB

If it helps, you can think of a Producer of an album as being similar to the Director of a film where the artists have written the script and created the storyboards, but now it needs to be turned into something that can be recorded and put on a DVD. Pete's role is very technical and hands on. Neil ...

Re: "SUPER" - album reviewed by forum members

I dug my login details out for the first time in a while to reply to Tom Angel's post. There are a couple of good moments on Super for me, but overall this album feels weak and shallow, and I worry it'll lessen the good reputation they built up with new audiences from Yes and Electric. It feels like...

Re: Ulrich Schnauss should produce next album

It'll be interesting what happens after "the album after Super". I'm guessing the Stuart Price album and concert producer arrangement is tightly tied to the fact his wife is their manager. They've kept 3 of their previous 4 managers for 5 years. Their current manager has been with them 7 years now. ...

Re: Neil's vast improvement in live singing over the past decade and a half

I don't think anyone is expecting Neil to sing like a solo vocalist in a choir would? We know when he gets the words wrong or lets the crowd sing that there's no substantial backing so it's real enough for a live experience. 'nuff said. Just read another post on here - I thought we all knew that Chr...

Re: Royal Opera House - who?

I suspect this could turn out to be their best show since the "theatre show days" - the set doesn't have to be shipped about, they've got music improved from the lessons learned from Electric - and they're got the buzz from the "Electric career reboot" still....

Re: The announcement email came from Parlophone

We don't know that they're not using the marketing services of Parlophone - they do more than just release records.
It's likely PSB will pay them to mail everyone in their PSB fan database.....

Re: The Super reaction thread!

Trying to work out where the next album will fit as I agree most of it is probably already recorded. April 2016 - Super released - known July 2016 - ROH shows - known Late 2016 - Mini-tour of festivals and one-off shows - known Summer 2017 - Possible Pop album release? 2017 - World tour - known - po...

Re: Inner Sanctum

Wow! I can't wait for the rest. You can tell from the production quality this has had the usual amount of PSB time spent on it unlike Electric that feels rushed in comparison.

Re: PSB DVD RIP?

Old Soak - it's too expensive for them to release anything but significant pieces of material of the quality they'd want.
