Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Wow

This is a million times more exciting than Dreamworld tour


Disco 5 isn't confirmed though - I suspect it won't happen the year - hopefully someone asked Annually!

Re: Happy Girls? West End People?

I thought the Release tour was the best.


Electric was SO boring. although i did see them at the O2 and they just do not work there I'm afraid.

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

Footsteps is such an insipid and blandly underwritten song - I know this is my opinion, but I fail to see how anyone might claim it as a great song. Even it's fans.

I've not lsitened to it for years. I seem to recall the Montage version is better..

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

That the PSB have become SO bad at electing their own tracks for albums is cause of constant dismay. I want people to realise how great the are these days and not hie stuff away on b-sides. However, I'd like to keep changes to Hotspot to a minimum, as it's got a better feel to it as an album than ot...

Re: Hotspot old synths

I find Pete Gleadell a bit conceited and annoying.

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

There is bound to be a Greatest Hits to accompany the tour.

So the chance of muddying the water with a Disco 5 alongside Hotspot strikes me as VERY unlikely.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

I reckon it's between Happy People and Hoping for a miracle.


Great news - that 3rd B-sides album is coming along nicely!

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

Has Disco 5 been confirmed or is it simply a rumour?

Looking forward to hearing this tomorrow.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I think Elysium as a 10 track album easily outshines Hotspot. Losing Hold on and Ego music. It's production is not dissiamlr to hotspot - which is far better than Super - but it's richer, as is the more constant mood. I'm very disappointed with You're the one - it's as anodyne as the only one and in...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

I won't listen to this until it arrives

HOWEVER>

I bet it should have made the album instead of Wedding in Berlin and You are the one.

What the hell is it with these better b-sides. It's so annoying.

..and relax.

Re: You Are The One - Birds

I have to admit that this track isn't really all that. I liked it on first listen.

It's a cousin of the only one - which is one of th east underwritten, insipid songs they've ever recorded. It is better than that, but it just sounds a bit wet. Maybe it needs more listens...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

I HATED it, and thought that after all the effort it ruined the album. Decide would most certainly have made the album a classic, but Wedding has grown on me - i like the looped bells sound in the background - it's pretty good, and it feels like a bit of welcomed lightheartedness after Burning the h...
