Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

Grey tee is an interesting idea but not sure it's as well executed as it could be This. The album cover mash-up itself looks somewhat meh, and I believe it would look better on a black background. Then again I really like the idea. Finally a creative t-shirt. If I were there, I would probably buy o...

Re: Expectations

Well this topic has certainly fired up debate! (unsurprisingly). Personally, even though Electric and Super had good moments, I long for a return to the standard album format. A collection of proper songs I'm not overly fussed wether or not it's a Very or a Yes or a Fundemental or even an Elysium o...

Re: Letter from Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe

It would be easy to argue that this is not a letter written by the boys themselves but rather by their marketing department, sure. However, that peculiar phrase "How could you miss it!?" really stands out. It just seems so tongue-in-cheek, especially with that punctuation. After an entire paragraph ...

What songs are they playing? I'm unable to watch, unfortunately.

Re: Hello from a Pethead from Bavaria

Hi Tom! Welcome on board. It's great to see a fellow pethead from Bavaria joining our forum :-) I like how you say you "studied (...) the sound of all kinds of metall objects" - even if that makes me think more of Depeche Mode than of PSB ;) It would be nice to hear your cover version of Rent. Enjoy...

Re: The "x2 B-sides - First 10" Survivor Challenge - Round 2

Entschuldigung! and A cloud in a box.

If "Wiedersehen" doesn't end up being the last song standing in this challenge, then something is seriously wrong with you people! ;-)

Re: Live DVD's

Best. News. Ever. WDR is both a TV and a radio station. This is amazing. On the way home from Leipzig yesterday I thought about how great it would be to have a proper recording of all those amazing "new versions of old songs", as Neil puts it. If it turns out to be more than an audio recording, this...

Re: The Super Tour - Some speculation

I wrote a quite lengthy review of the show in Leipzig on the German petheads.de board where I compared it to the ROH shows that I also attended. Here are cliff notes (I don't feel like translating the entire review, sorry :D ) : - The show was absolutely amazing and had I known that the concert in L...

Re: The Super Tour

Probably because these songs couldn't achieve a positive reaction from the generic crowd of concertgoers, most of whose comes for "It's a sin" and "West End girls"... While it's true that most of the crowd is there to hear their imperial hits, it's also true that "Twenty-Something" and "Winner" wer...

Re: The Super Tour

I felt there was kind of a dead section in the setlist. Se a Vida e through to Enigma was kind of, dare I say, boring. I know some people will argue back, and that's fine. SAVE is an alright song, but just alright. LCC is ok. Love Etc I never really cared for, Dictator is a song I'm not too familia...

Re: Es Devlin, choose her best PSB visual design on tour

Interestingly, Pandemonium seemed like a more refined version of Cubism - similar stage elements, but just a lot more thought-out and with more things happening on stage. The same can be said about Super: it's essentially an upgraded version of Electric. So maybe we'll (hopefully) get an all-new tou...

Re: Es Devlin, choose her best PSB visual design on tour

Pandemonium, by a large margin. Electric was simply a mess, and Super - although it in a way recycles a lot of the elements we've seen during the Electric tour - lies somewhere in between. For me, the big difference between Pandemonium and the other two tours is that Pandemonium had a stringent, con...

Re: The Super Tour - Some speculation

I think Neil's just taken to singing those words over the top of the intro - I think the music is the same. Not sure it works really. Exactly. The mix is the same from ROH. Neil just provoked the crowd with a couple of memorable lines. Amazing intro, by the way - noticed it back in July. I'd like t...

Re: The Super Tour - Some speculation

Just watched some videos of the SUPER tour on YouTube. There seems to be a new segment in the show: a short section of "Opportunities" right before "Go West":

I can't remember "Go West" having this kind of intro at the ROH shows?
