No..!! Never. Incidentally, one can't recall reading your thoughts and opinions on recent PSB offerings like Lost, Cricket Wife and suchlike... That needs to be rectified...

Do you know if all the songs from Nonetheless are written by Neil and Chris?. The influence of James Ford is going to be quite big. The album of Jessie Ware have all the songs co-written with him.

It's interesting that apparently there's no 'Nonetheless' instrumental special edition.

There's an interview with James Ford in the Financial Times. It's very general and only briefly touches on Nonetheless, but he describes it as “stripped-down electronic with a cinematic orchestral side”.

"stripped down electronics" to me sounds more like behaviour-style analogue synths + orchestral stuff

the album Elysium was perhaps meant to be before they made it cringe

In a literal sense the Blue Man Group theater is next to my favorite coffee house so I walk by it everyday and there’s always a long line of tourists! Definitely still going strong! 😎
