Re: New Boy & I Don't Wanna Mixes Snippets

New Boy sounds great. The mix's of I don’t wanna all sound quite good, looking forward to hearing them in full. The “Hotspot“ era is really turning out to be an excellent area for B-sides and mix’s

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Lyrically and timeline-wise this song is commercially safe for the days of Coronoavirus. Not so sure how Happy People would go down with the emotional landscape of today for a lot of people. I do hold out hope for HP as a 5th single.....four singles on this lp and two of them are the weakest songs ...

The Prins Thomas mix of Monkey Business is great. The best in years.
I couldn’t agree more, I love the Prins Thomas mix so much I’ve added it to Hotspot right after Monkey Business.
Monkey business is one of my favorite tracks on the album and the Prins Thomas mix just adds to it wonderfully.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

While I have issues with the overall album and not really loving alot of the songs, I have zero issue with the lyrics. Hotspot is a fantastic set of Neil lyrics, especially "Wilo the wisp" and happy people. I dont wanna" is nice but while I used to wish Neil wrote more lyrics about love and life, I...

Upon reflection I think “Numb” was their worst ever single. “I don’t wanna” took a while to click for me, but now I really like it. It’s pleasingly straightforward and well put together.
Numb is one of the worst songs they have ever made. It is a terrible blot on their catalog. God I hate “Numb”

The worst single of their career? You are aware that ”Single” was a single aren’t you?
"Say it to me" exists.
Yep, I hate “say it to me”.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Great news! I hope we get a long extended remix that’s faithful to the original.

Re: Agenda instead of Hotspot

Both are great. Agenda is a mini yes. Agreed, I like agenda as well with the exception of The Forgotten Child. However, the boys were right to release these tracks separately from Hotspot. Their political nature prevents some people from enjoying them and you wouldn’t want that on a main Studio alb...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

No. It's their most perfect album since Very. The order of track selection has obviously been well considered. The fast-slow-fast pacing forms a most pleasing journey, almost like a mega-version of the best dance tracks which feature 'drops' and build to crescendos. I wouldn't change a thing. With ...

Re: Agenda instead of Hotspot

Thank god that the Agenda tracks released separately, because they are so bad and weak. When I heard Agenda I feared that the new album will be as bad as Agenda, but thankfully, Hotspot is a perfect album. The only good track on Agenda is Social media, but it's much more like a b-side. agenda and h...

IMHO, The Prins mix is fantastic. It made me love the song
I love the prins re-mix as well, 8 1/2 minutes of disco glory. The other remix is good but not quite as good as the aforementioned.
