Personally I love cricket wife! haven't received it yet but heard it on vimeo. It reminds me more of It couldn't happen here than of anything else. Neil's singing is moving as the music grows on me,I will definitely listen to it lot!
and still no leaks...

Sorry, I don't understand the logic. Fair enough if the CD is exclusive but why would you not want as many people as possible to hear it?

For a group that prides itself on being global, it seems strange to prevent people from hearing material that is only available on a physical format that is far more expensive and difficult to procure outside the UK.

I wasn't able to listen to this song. I'm not part of the club fan. I suppose I could listen to it in the future. But as I suspected, it's not the kind of songs I like. Even most of people from this forum don't like the song.

Had a few listens it's a very interesting song I get why most don't like it but there's more to the Pet Shop Boys than pop and dance so for me it's good their making different kinds of music hence their new theatre project

How do you know "most of people from this forum don't like the song..?" Have you asked every member personally..? :roll:

Also, Cricket wife is freely available to listen to on Vimeo..

You don't have to be part of the fan club like you did to receive the brown paper/three times a year issues. You simply buy direct from their website.

Sadly Ebay is full of them at grotesque profits this morning. Same issue as concert tickets, competing against the worst face of Capitalism, profiteering.

What's Vimeo like? I saw you need to make a subscription and I don't feel like it unless it's really worth the hassle.

No subscription needed. Just go to the Vimeo website and type in 'pet shop boys cricket wife' on their search bar and hey presto !

Cool. Just did. Had a listen. The song is really good. Without lyrics though it would've been almost unlistenable. "Classical" music like this is so stressful. One really misses a soothing base or drum beat. But with Neil's voice ist alles in Ordnung.

Still waiting for my copy to arrive, so just had a listen on Vimeo,and I’ve got to say I quite like it. It’s never going to be anyone’s favourite song, but it’s a complete departure from their last release, and that probably why most of us love them.

More like a Tennant/Lowe Battleship Potemkin release, than a PSB one, but very nice.They can do so many different things, because they are so talented.
