Re: The Leaving remixes by PSB, your thoughts?

They are the Side-By-Side Remix, Freedom Remix, and the Lost Her Love Remix. Lost Her Love remix isn't by PSB. It's by the artist Dusty Kid. https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Leaving-Remixed/release/3936807 Ah, thanks very much, to my ears it sounds like PSB, so that's a shame they didn't make ...

The Leaving remixes by PSB, your thoughts?

They are the Side-By-Side Remix, Freedom Remix, and the Lost Her Love Remix. I think they are just fantastic and seem a bit overlooked to me, I'd love to hear peoples current thoughts on them 4 years on. The Side-By-Side and Freedom mixes are so great and near the best of their remixes of their own ...

Re: "Super tour" live dates

Whew, they booked a Toronto date, can't wait til November. It is odd they didn't bother with Montreal, but they did pick Vancouver, so that's either just the first or second time they've ever played in western Canada.

Re: PSB - Super vs. New Order - Music Complete

I've been comparing Super to Music Complete for a while now, I guess because there's not many PSB contemporaries left. For me it's the first time a New Order album released around the same era as a PSB album makes an argument that it's the better of the two. And that's not really on the PSB: they ar...

Re: Name a track of each PSB albums that you always skip

Most songs that I skip I like, and some I even like more than other tracks that I don't skip. For example I've listened to Hold On more times than Breathing Space, because I always skip Breathing Space not because I dislike it but because I'm never in the mood to hear that type of song from PSB. It'...

Re: So, the Radio 2 four-part documentary, then.

I can access the DVD after all, excellent. It starts at 1:32:44. "There was a low point, can't remember what it was now. I said to Chris, 'Oh should we just jack it all in.' And Chris didn't answer me, and we started talking about something else.' And then Chris is shown talking about how he's basic...

Re: So, the Radio 2 four-part documentary, then.

I'm listening the docummentary again, I don't remember when they say thing about the future. When did it happen, which part of the fourth documentary show? It was just in the last few minutes of part 4. So On A Life In Pop, what I remember is the same story, but it seemed to be related to the muted...

Re: Best song from "Super"

This is the first album since Very that I've not had a promo copy in advance, so it was a interesting listening to it in the car for the first time this morning. I've glanced at the reviews and my hopes weren't high, but on first (and repeated) listens my favourite track is... Groovy ... clearly no...

Re: So, the Radio 2 four-part documentary, then.

Yes the Heart version was from the 1989 tour, unmistakable due to the backup singers stylings. I got the impression they played the songs to Neil and Chris in the studio during the interview, but I guess not or they would have caught that. One other discrepancy was at the very end Neil said in 1999 ...

Re: Sad Robot World audio problems?

Now that you mention it I do hear it, however I think it is intentional and for effect. It's a squelchy hiss, and I hear it continuing after the 6 second mark as the keyboard begins. And I too think I hear something similar in The Dictator Decides, some hiss around the drums. I don't find the sound ...

Re: Not So Super...

Totally agree with this topic. I think too that people should be a little more honest. The truth is that Super is not a very good album and in all honesty we're all a bit disappointed. This is by no means trolling but just expressing my own opinion. So your opinion is that everyone is disappointed....

Re: Say It to Me

It sounds like a bad imitation of the artist Sigala. This type of island dance song is tricky to get right. There's not enough energy and abandon to properly pull it off, so the loop to me ends up sounding weak and very repetitive.
