Re: Best track on Nonetheless

This poll tells me that I am totally out of sync with the average PSB fan. My favourite is easily Bullet For Narcissus and I would have both Dancing Star and New London Boy in my top 4. None of those three tracks are getting many votes here. I also think that "Feel" is the most "meh&q...

Re: Worst track on Nonetheless

I think "why am I dancing" is one song part...or middle eight short of greatness....it needed one more interesting thing happening in it...and maybe a more inventive ending. I also dont know why as the song is getting going they inexplicably drop out the bass on the second chorus. I agree...

Re: Worst track on Nonetheless

I love Schlager. It may be a bit out of place but it's classic. Really hope it's a single. I love it too. It's strangely moving; I think it's an affectionate tribute to that element of European culture. But would you also love it if it was the Austrian Eurovision entry this year? Kidding, but with ...

Re: Best track on Nonetheless

It's another vote for Bullet... from me. Classic PSB, and perfectly wedged between the slower Secret of Happiness and Love is the Law tracks. New London Boy and Love is the Law ran it close though ! Very close to my taste. I currently have Bullet at #1, Love Is The Law at #3 and New London Boy at #4.

Re: Worst track on Nonetheless

I think one of the best things about Nonetheless is how pleasant the listening experience is with no tracks that are grating or sound out of place. As such there is no real "worst track", but something's got to be the least appealing and for me that track is The Schlager Hit Parade, which ...

Re: Best track on Nonetheless

My pick - at least at the moment - is Bullet For Narcissus, which I find to be a wonderful track with a rather unique place in the PSB discography. I think the chorus is super catchy without being derivative and the production is spot on. Love how the strings come in to dominate towards the end.

Re: New album Nonetheless

CAHEB is best tucked into an obscure b-side position or it could be an interlude in a shortened version. I think I'll make a 1 minute edit of it and put on my private version of Nonetheless where I add, so far, No Sense of Time and Party In The Blitz . Why would you do a great album dirty like that...

Re: New album Nonetheless

1. Bullet For Narcissus This has been my favourite since the first listen. I especially enjoy it when the strings come in fully in the final part of the song. The fact that the song slams Trump only helps, but it would have been my favourite regardless of the lyrics. 2. Dancing Star This has grown ...

Re: Mr. Tennant slams Taylor Swift.

Anti-Hero Bad Blood Shake It Off Blank Space Would probably be her hits that cut through. Bad Blood? Nah. That is not even one of her top 30 most streamed songs. Her most streamed song alltime on spotify is Cruel Summer, which is absolutely massive and should be on that list. BTW, Drake has an even...

Ooohh, I missed that interview. Nice pick from Neil. Good album.

Re: Mr. Tennant slams Taylor Swift.

I consider myself a casual fan of Taylor Swift. I know all of her albums, but I don't obsess over her and I am not a "swiftie". I think the very mild criticism that Neil levels at Taylor is totally on point. She is very very very good at what she does, but she does tend to write the same s...

Just no. One would have to be seriously deluded to think that this could be about being the bodyguard of Joe Biden. "His politics are simply mean" "He's so banal, he's made it mainstream" "The accusations he denies" "I wonder if he's realised That right behind him...

Re: New album Nonetheless

There’s a dirty groove to Bullet for narcissus that could as easily be about the body guard of Biden as it is about Trump’s, depending upon how you view the political swamp. Just no. One would have to be seriously deluded to think that this could be about being the bodyguard of Joe Biden. "His...
