Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I, too, had some misadventures with orders from Digital Stores in the past. Now, when I’m placing an order, I choose the basic shipping method and so far I’ve always received all issues of Annually. However, I understand there’s a high probability of missing an issue every year. This got me thinking...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

I hated WIB at first. Then I tried hard to like it and I almost succeeded, because I knew I'd have to live with this album for a long time. Eventually I went back to my initial impression. Not only it's an abomination, but it's also a shame that it's been given such precious place in an album (to be...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

For me it’s the best track on hotspot. Not sure what a remix could do to make it better. At first I thought the bridge was kind of weird with those unusual chords, but it’s definitely grown now.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Great to read all these diverse impressions and feelings from the forum members. I'm patiently waiting for Earth to rotate a little bit more before I can access the tracks.

It sounded cheesy to me on first listen...but I’m totally sold and love it now.

Wish there was more!

Anyone else with me on this?
Loved that bit from the first listen. :dance:

Re: What is the rationale for pre-ordering albums?

I agree it's a weak point, but I preorder digital items so that I don't forget. Plus, it might be the case that the number of preorders might be of interest for artists/publishing companies to gather statistics and trends.

Re: Missing...

The lyrics for In bits have indeed been missing from the OS for a long time, one or two years at least and probably more. In fact, by guessing the URL of the page in which they would be found you land on this https://petshopboys.co.uk/lyrics/in-bits I think it’s just a mishap of the web site, withou...

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

To be honest I'm not particularly excited by these side projects. I'd trade them for a shorter wait in between studio albums any time. It's good though to see that they are active on different fronts.

Re: Of course it might just be me........

I very much welcome a (radical) change in both sound and style, neither Super nor Electric have worked particularly very well for me. But hey, a new album is coming, this is good news nonetheless.
