I think the album artwork looks expensive and lux.
The single on the other hand looks cheap. Especially with the background curtain.

Re: Smash - The Singles 1985 - 2020

The first question that comes to mind is ”Will we get an e-mail when stock is up for sale again”. Why is communication So Hard these days?

:wall: I’ll do one more attempt at ordering from the OS. If it’s not working this time I will skip buying and start listening to death metal instead.

Re: Pet Shop Boys store now has Dreamworld Tour merch

It doesn’t look very good, does it! As it is a greatest hits tour, why not create new merch from the existing, iconic graphics library. Like PopArt.

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

Re: Hotspot ratings
