Could they move the release date ahead two weeks?
She’ll probably just release another SURPRISE!!!album that week as well.
Knowing their luck, they’ll be a surprise release of a discovered album the Beatles and Elvis recorded in 1965

And someone will screw up the iTunes sales so they count towards the wrong week again.

    Hotspot 24 January 2020 3
its interesting that from an autumn time frame they went to more spring summer and Hotspot's January is a true outlier

They should bump up the album to April 1, to get a Top 5
Hotspot and Electric are the true outliers. The release period has always been either Spring (March-May) or Autumn (Sep-Oct) and Fundy only got a May release because of delays out of their control. It was originally going to be late March/early April.

Damn you Taylor! grrrrrr...

I would have loved the boys to get another number 1 at this point in their careers and in their 40th anniversary year it would have been extra special.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

After the turnout at the Dreamland cinemas.... what makes you think that Swift and PSB would even be in any kind of competition with eachother.

What Stopped Please? Hits 4 and Brothers In Arms
What Stopped Actually? Bad Michael Jackson
What Stopped Introspective? Rattle and Hum U2
What Stopped Behaviour? Rhythm Of The Saints Paul Simon (nope, me neither)
With Actually, Introspective and Behaviour it was literally down to timing. A week either way and they would have had at least a week at number one. The TS juggernaut will put paid to nonetheless too...
is is and isnt isnt

the big question I have is will Feel be a high energy track? Or will the album settle quickly into ballads, like Hotspot?

I'm really hoping they keep the energy up at the start!

And really looking forward to a track-by-track write up, so I can pour over the track reviews. Always a fun moment with new albums

Not a Swifty by any measure, but I'd give her slightly more credit than that 😅

I don't know who it was, but I want to thank whoever it was here that tipped us off about buying the clear vinyl from Amazon and the Grey vinyl from Rough Trade.

I would never have known otherwise (although a Google likely would have reaped results). I get regular emails (multiple daily which is kind of annoying actually) from signing up to Rough Trade (UK and US) and not a single one has mentioned PSB Nonetheless so far. Quite disappointing.

So, whoever you are, thank you!

When I read the articles about the new album doesn't look like it was going to be a sad album. An "uplifting" album sounds to me like something more easy-going than a sad album.

Thank you for bringing the thread back on track.

Not everything. I believe Geowayne has it covered better.

No, it's rampant everywhere. Loneliness Is A Catastrophe.

I know a lonely man, but he's a bit different, and he's a busdriver so he meets loads of people every day. Other than that, there isn't much loneliness around here.
