Re: Sky forum

I remember that forum. I also remember the psb fan site ran in the 90’s by Matts ? And of course The big red dot ran by Mike Fiorenza ? oh and dotmusic ?

Am I alone ?

Re: 10 years of Fundamental - Trevor Horn answers questions from forum members

Tend to agree with your comments Drico. Listened to the first 15 mins of the show and wondered if Trevor was on the wind up re his links to the boys. Personally I wasn’t sure why on social media was chosen as the lead track on the show, as even though I’m not a big fan of GSaC of the four tracks it ...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

The people of this Community have had enough of big words from posters with extensive vocabularies saying they know what is best and getting it consistently wrong. So, in the spirit of the times, let me be clear: Agenda means Agenda. Despite our difference of opinion on this release, I hope to main...

The Forgotten Child - Production credit(s)

As shared on the other thread, I'm really enjoying the forgotten child (well the first 2 mins 30 seconds anyway). I'm struck by the production technique used on Neil's voice. Not something we've had from Stuart Price. Also... is Pete Gleadall still on board ? Nothing on his twitter account relating ...

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

I like the EP as a format. I'd rather have four amazing PSB tracks in a single release, rather than four amazing PSB tracks nestling amongst 8 Meh tracks (*cough* Super *cough*) Still can't quite grasp the dissatisfaction with Super - I don't think there's a weak track on it, but it's not as compac...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Just like to change my ratings following further listening

GSAC 4 was 6
OSM 4 was 5
Wawgtdatr 4 was 5
TFC 7 was 5

I’ve cone to terms with the cut and shut production of TFC. It’s beautiful track and hence 7/10 is warranted. This track rains on half of Super. Very nice

Re: Meanwhile... Drico, Drico Wherefore Art Thou..

Good to see Drico resurface. Just hope his review doesn’t go too far in espousing praise that clearly isn’t warranted. A bit of balance would be appreciated.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Re the forgotten child Opening couple of minutes are lovely. Then it loses its way somewhat and when it does take a different direction it introduces a completely out of place OTT thumping drum. it’s as if whoever put it there did so without reference to what went before. I’ve enjoyed the EP. I’d ma...

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

Hear hear. I posted on another thread that this release has put a smile on my face for the first time in ages. Have read so many stupid petty nit picking comments on this site over the past few days, beggars belief. Probably from trump sympathisers or people who voted to leave.😂 Well I’m a leave vo...

Re: Left To My Own Devices poll.

There are so many different mixes although I guess the original album mix is my favourite, probably though via a real orchestra, such as via the Concrete album or the live performance celebrating Trevor Horn's catalogue. The onusound mix is good.. as is the disco mix. I'm not a fan of the stuart pri...

Re: Poll ends soon on ranking the first five PSB studio albums

Behaviour only wins because Neil says it’s gheir greatest album

If Neil said bilingual was now their best album most on here would suddenly change their minds to agree with Neil

A side effect of fandom

Re: Poll ends soon on ranking the first five PSB studio albums

Interesting poll. I’m sure Neil would approve that petheads agree that Behaviour is ‘officially their best album’ Thing is.... as is all to often the case. Neil’s wrong Please is by far the best album they’ve ever produced, followed by Actually If they had stopped after these two albums their place ...
