This is why they always benefit from using a producer. Their own productions can be lacking. And it is interesting that these recent “lockdown” remixes have been billed as “keyboards by Chris, vocals by Neil”. It’s Chris using a limited range of favourite sounds from his home set up.
IMO he needs to get away from using a laptop with plugins and back to using physical instruments.

Let's face it, they haven't been the most progressive when lending their sound to others. It tends to be about bringing that artist into the PSB universe which is about 90% nostalgia and 10% innovation.

Is anyone else bothered by the font inconsistency in the design? Love the Farrowness of it all, but it switches from a serif font to sans serif in the tracklist .. bit of a design-don't (if indeed it's legit cover art).

Is the radio edit actually on the 12'' as it doesn't seem to be listed on the sleeve?

Review from Juno Records:

Although better known as a photographer and artist, Wolfgang Tillmans has released quite a few rather good records in recent times, with experimental, ambient-influenced synth-pop LP Moon In Earthlight, which dropped earlier this year, one of the most impressive. This 12" features one of the highlights of that set, the sparkling, sci-fi synth-pop joy of 'Insanely Alive', is given a single release. The fine original mix (track four) is given an even more joyous, dancefloor-centric revision by fellow veterans the Pet Shop Boys, who brilliantly re-frame it in their image whilst retaining Tillmans' vocals and cheery melodies. The other rework, the Total Freedom and Sami Baha Spooky Curse / Special Blessing Mix, joins the dots between ambient, synth-pop and mutant dancehall. The track's twisted analogue bass is particularly weighty.

Fabulous Remix. Love it. Best thing they've remixed in a long time for me.
