How did you get to listen to the album?
A man I know who is homosexual and writes music stuff sometimes temporarily granted me access to a preview stream he’d wrangled because it’s Christmas.
How important in this message is that he was a homosexual? XP

Anyway, good to know there is another nice reaction.
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

It's descriptive and just as relevant as the facts that he writes music (sometimes) and did Nicholas a favour. It paints a picture of the benevolent act and poses questions in the reader's mind as to his motivation. And then I'm thinking about the wrangling - there's another rabbit hole.

I'm really looking forward to getting Hotspot next month. I'm sure we'll get a new round of Neil & Chris treasures. I'm quite liking Heather and Decide (Dreamland, not so much), but I'm wondering if we'll ever again that swooping, lyrical, big-intervals type of melody writing we used to get from PSB. I'm thinking of music like Suburbia, It's a Sin, Left to My Own Devices, Jealousy, Can You Forgive Her, A Red Letter Day, Integral - big, in-your-face stuff, not the hushy or subtle melodies which have been more common of late.

A new spin on the term "ear candy".

Retro. :)

I doubt our paths would ever have crossed if we weren’t both homosexual. It’s a great leveller. There have to be some benefits to offset the decades of casual intolerance and physical violence (not to me so much, I’m 6'5").

To anyone who's heard all three Price albums: how'd you rank them?

It's like going to Berghain. Gays first. PSB know that very well. :lol:

I'm straight so, I'll have to wait.

This is the best one. I can never quite decide which of the other two I prefer overall.

Pretty easy. Electric is one of their worst album.

1- Hotspot
2 - Super
3 - Electric
