Re: Here We Go..It's The Agenda Poll

I've often thought it must feel a bit strange to be a right winged Pet Shop Boys fan. There can't be many albums of theirs which could be played without that fan's finger hovering over the 'skip' button. It'd be a bit like being a socialist with a bizarre fascination for, fffffffffffffff... I dunno...

Re: Here We Go..It's The Agenda Poll

Somewhere undecided between center left and social democracy. At least in italian terms, political catholicism can be rather phony and corrupt, but I've experienced left-wing cultural haughtiness and right-wing complete lack of compassion as well, and I found the latter is very much the worst of the...

Re: Reissues project

Like vinyl a lot but for me it’s total nostalgia. I want the CD too for the best sound quality, and I want to own my music so streaming is not my thing. The current vinyl hype is just a hipster thing. It’ll pass. In 10 years it’s nostalgia for CDs, mark my words 🙂 Each format has pros and cons... Y...

Re: Reissues project

I like vinyl a lot, its rituality is an absolute joy. And a botched mix or mastering can make CDs sound messy as well (hello Pandemonium?).

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

Agenda is like being back in the Bilingual days, with "Before" and three b-sides coming out months before the album!

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I'd consider Agenda a test for the post-Stuart Price years. If it does well in terms of charts they could actually slow down touring and start releasing regular EPs instead. I'd welcome this. I'd also like the productions of the tours to become less spectacular and more nimble, allowing for more se...

Dare I say TFC sounds like Brian Wilson meets Jean-Michel Jarre?

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

You're not supposed to fight obtuse populism without being in-your-face too. Current populism found one of its strongest (and easiest) arguments (ahem) in calling "left-wing elitarism" everything that has a slight shade of subtleness, so you just have to be crass to get a bit of a reaction from peop...

Any insight...

...on why they chose not to produce the Agenda songs with Stuart Price? Possibly not to give away a preview of the sound of the new album? From what's been written here so far TFC might be slightly too delicate for his rather heavy-handed approach on production, but the other 3 songs seem to suit hi...
