Guess it's not necessarily about logic. Chris once said that he likes the fact that Relentless is limited/hard to find.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Yes, for four years now. Ever since "Nightlife/Further Listening" was released... and I'm pretty sure the Elton compilation hit streaming before that as well! Oh, right. I'd forgotten they later released it outside of fanclub. But otherwise it would not have been available for streaming n...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Oh, I hadn't realised. It still seems odd though. Nothing odd at all. Those are exclusives, not general-commercial releases. Guess they just like keeping them scarce / not easily available. They can afford this fancy. By the way, is the original 1997 version of It doesn't often snow at Christmas on...

Battleship Potemkin I would rather say. TMIT is supposed to sound much more cool than that.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Vocals are sung. What I still remember after the only one listen is that those vocals sound very sad and tragic (which is probably the reason why I don't feel like listening to it again today as I am not in that mood and don't want to be drawn into it).

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Why? You don’t like it? I won't be jumping to the conclusion that I don't like it. Maybe I will like it once I have listened to it again. But it is certainly not the type of a track after playing which for the first time I would say "nice! I wanna play this again" (and, typically, the lat...

Cricket wife is so dark, moody and sorrowful. Played it once and not yet willing to play it second time (rarely ever happens with new PSB tracks).

Can you forgive her dials it up to 11 What I find especially annoying is that the camera operators assumed that what those semi-naked boys and girls were doing was the primary thing to film, not Neil or Chris. I would have much more enjoyed watching Chris put his fingers down on the keyboard to pro...

You lucky duckies! Such a shame no recordings of that exist (or do they?) and also that they have never played the song live again.

The driver must have meant that Chris does nothing but standing behind the keyboards.

Re: The Taxi Driver And His Mate..

Hahaha. This topic seems to be really TOUCHING Neil's nerve. He wrote a song about it. In interviews he has mentioned taxi drivers asking him that question. Like one would instead expect them to play latest PSB albums non stop on repeat while driving. Like an average Joe would not think that if a ba...

Re: Neil and Chris - Alcohol

If your guys' theory about Winner is true then the Parlophone guys would have been in too because they approved it to be a single.

That said, I have never had any issues with Winner. The vocal version is okay-ish. The instrumental is quite good. The HappySad remix is gorgeous.

They may drink some but it does not appear to be any sort of a problem for anyone. Have you ever heard of any event screwed up because of their drinking? They just know the limits and enjoy them.

The days when fake was equal to poor quality are long gone. If quality is all you care about, then whether it is fake or not should no longer matter.

But that CD is surely fake.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

generally speaking, what is the point ? I think the culture of digital releases has not yet progressed to the point where I would buy them instead of physical ones. The main issue is that you don't get the full booklet. Just the sleeve image in JPEG which normally does not even include the full cre...
