Re: Hotspot reviews

Interestingly, you could have written the above review without even hearing the album. Quite possibly they didn't bother.

"Full Intention" being the name of the artist, not to be confused with something like the "Full Story" remix of The Pop Kids.
Best known in my quarters for having provided the definitive mix of Duke's "So In Love With You"

Re: Pet Shop Boys Tribute (Melbourne, 24 Jan)

Greetings drunk,

In Melbourne, yes. I'm sure others in cities feel likewise... It's the country areas with high fuel loads (e.g. lots of dense, dry bushland) near them who need to be careful.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Greetings Drunk, I have never seen an example of using monkey business in a sexual context. What could be the one? Fake orgasm? I don't get it, sorry. Please, explain me. I don't think that what's meant.... it's a bit more like how a word like "shenanigans" relates to activities, which may or not be...

Greetings, Oh, what a wonderful picture! I Hope you don't mind if I put it on a T-shirt! If you'd like a higher-res version of the image, message me your e-mail address and I'll send it through. However, you could probably create it yourself using a hi-res image of the cover of Story, and then using...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings, ...it feels carefully assembled rather than just a collection of finished songs bunged together. Kind of a ‘this is what Pet Shop Boys are about at the moment’ showcase rather than just 45 minutes of brand new bleeps and bloops. Agreed. Nice description. And, I might add, what I have else...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings, For context and additional detail to what I'll say below, here's the link to my initial review . Is Neil’s Monkey business vocal style on any of the other Hotspot tracks? I assume you're referring specifically to the biting/shouty style... to which the answer is no. Although, that said: -...

Re: Rate Monkey Business (edit version)

Greetings Nickname, So do you think there is nothing interesting on the album version that makes it better?. For example, the album version of Thursday is not particulary interesting if you compare it with the single version. Do you think we can say the same with the album version of the song?. A so...

Re: What's your opinion about Agenda?

Greetings, Do you like Agenda? Or do you hate it? What's your opinion about the EP? What I don't like: - It showcases Neil's Guardian-influenced elitism (which I suspect is not going to hold up well over time) - For the most part the lyrics and music aren't all that flash What I do like: - Its exist...

Re: Rate Monkey Business (edit version)

Edit - 7
Album version - 7

Frankly, I think the edit is actually quite well done and has what I was hoping for in terms of a slightly "re-mixed" (albeit, not "remixed") version. It also makes it makes a bit more sense as a single and being substantially shorter doesn't hurt it at all.

Re: Pet Shop Boys Tribute (Melbourne, 24 Jan)

Greetings Sage, Oh that's awesome!! I'll be there. :up: Looking forward to details. Does tribute mean specifically a live cover performance? Or is it more of an album launch party? More an album launch party, albeit not an official one... let's call it a "new album celebration"! if you have any part...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Tribute (Melbourne, 24 Jan)

Thanks Ghost. Given the Tribute date coincides with the release of Hotspot (how ironic given your comment!) I'm sure it will be a good day for Melbourne-based Pet Shop Boys fans.
