Just did a quick skim of the song choices (I am working after all!) and these are all really solid picks.

I'll give it a proper read later.

This could make a nice alternative PSB playlist.

Nice article. A bit too Please-heavy and Actually-light tho.

I'm missing Bolshy on that list, but happy to see Euroboy and Some Speculation are there.

Nice to see "social media" get some love. I think its one of their best tracks in years. I think that one track is better than most of Hotspot

I agree! A fun upbeat song and the lyrics are right on the money.
Overall I thought it was a lengthy and well varied list.
Disco Potential was a surprising but welcome entry (one that crept up my favs list over the years).
It’s nice to see some of their lesser acknowledged songs get some love. :)

Excellent list -

Shame A new life didn't get a mention - it's always been in the top 10. Very happy to see leaving there too.

Id' have added Minimal and I made my excuses and left to the list, along with The way it used to be, An open mind, Decide, and No excuses.

How can they have a article like that and NOT mention The Way It Used To Be :grumble:

I appreciate something like this is entirely subjective but for me quite a number of essential tracks have been overlooked:

A new life
I get excited
It must be obvious
My October symphony
The survivors
For all of us
Love is a catastrophe
Always
The Resurrectionist
Fugitive
The way it used to be
King of Rome
Invisible
A face like that
Burn
Sad robot world
An open mind
Hoping for a miracle
Woof.
