Re: Best PSB Bridge

DJ Culture : "Now as a matter of pride Indulge yourself, your every mood No feast-days, or fast-days, or days of abstinence intrude" Or maybe I Wouldn't Normally.. (The album version, obviously.) "If people say I'm crazy, I tell 'em that it's true Let them watch with amazement... etc." +instrumental.

Whhaaaaaaaat? It's been linked to the official site! :shock: :shock: :oops:

EDIT: Too bad it's in such a small size it's unreadable. Who to approach to get that fixed?

Re: First impressions of Winner (in a comic strip form)

I just aimed to draw the very first impression, so it's not meant to be super insightful. After hearing it I went to a pub to draw the sketches, had a few pints and wrote the final impressions, having heard it at that time the total of four times. I did it partly for myself in order to record how I ...

First impressions of Winner (in a comic strip form)

Mine, anyway. I didn't listen to the sample, so I just heard it less than 7 hrs ago. I haven't read any other reviews either, yet.

But I made this:

Re: An idea of the album's sound...

So what makes this L.A. -sounding? The closest L.A. connection to me is that somehow it reminds me of the Chinatown -movie theme. Similar sadness in the melody.

Re: Not much love compilation

I always though CTH on Nightlife is overproduced rather than underproduced.. all the unnecessary sounds, starting from the first few seconds, drown a great melody. The musical soundtrack version in turn is underproduced. CTH is a song that's still lacking a decently produced version. They shouldn't ...

Re: Where stands Elysium?

Can you imagine any artist, 20 years into their career, signing a new SEVEN album deal?! It's brilliant and yet remarkable. Many artists now wont even get to seven albums. Hard to say how many of current artists will get to seven albums, but I agree anyway. The appreciation for PSB varies from one ...

Indeed. With my mediocre Swedish I can translate that "more information, including the release date of the album, will follow later".

Re: pet shop boys - invisible.

Ok, I've heard it now five times. Arrangements were made: I took my lunch hour off and walked to the seaside in Helsinki to listen to it on my iPhone, while having a third of a bottle of red wine (to the detriment of my already busy schedule but first things are the first to come). Nice song. It gro...

Re: pet shop boys - invisible.

If the strategy is to release songs one by one then it makes it extra hard to wait for the full album. Anyway, I guess I have to listen to this, but not like this.. not at work, sitting in front of a computer. Since I remember with almost every PSB song where I heard it first, I must make some arran...
