Re: Left To My Own Devices poll.

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 ...

Re: One Hundred Lyrics

Surely the poem will be

Cloud in a box

It’s the only song that Neil directly said was based on a poem he wrote as a kid

Isn’t it ?

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

Lyrically up there in their top 20 of all time
