Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

I remember the second life thing....I give them credit for trying something that was really new at the time...and from what I saw in that video...completely bonkers...but have any of you been in VR? even though VR is a very small niche technology, it is kinda fun to go to a place where its others fr...

Re: PSB, presents and a muppet in Christmas time (Going Live!)

1992 was the Christmas they were supposed to release Go West, before they pulled it and decided to wait for Very. I wonder if there was a prior agreement to turn up on the show that, for whatever reason, they could not abandon. Certainly, the references to not having a record to promote seem pointe...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Many of us will be reading this in March/April next year, when Covid will possibly be a thing of the past so I'd expect some lightheartedness rather than lockdown talk for the majority of the book. Covid has essentially been wiped out already here in Melbourne, Australia. While it would be difficul...

Re: Further Listening in the future?

I dont see them releasing a new album of new material until the pandemic is far in the rear view. I think they enjoy the dance...recording an album, releasing it and then touring. I dont see them doing another album when even if they released a new album...THAT tour would be in jeopardy just like th...

Re: Future duet

yeah I dont like their duets or even them partaking in them. I just want them on their songs. even dusty, yes yes I know "what have I done" is beloved by all the fans but she sounds so much like neil on the track and vice versa when I listen to the track I dont even hear a duet. just neil ...

Re: The unreleased single version of "It comes as a suprised"?

hmmm, I would think it would have to be the PSB....I wonder how a fan could do that without having access to the multi tracks and thereby have the ability to drop out certain parts such as the drums. all I can think is an earlier mix leaked before they got it to the way we hear it on the album. I do...

Re: Your favourite Second

the outtro in "liberation" right before the end when Neil sings.... "all the way back home at midnight....all the way back home at midnight" the middle eight to Drunk when neil sings "if you dont...even try...you'll be sunk". I LOVE the chord change right on the word tr...

Re: The unreleased single version of "It comes as a suprised"?

that just sounds like the song in an earlier state of mixing, not an actual approved release as a single or anything.

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

you cant rank the albums properly until you've let them breathe for at least a couple years. I find I am really enjoying their newer music, but.... their albums as of late have been more miss than hit. I used to like at least 5-7 songs on each new album....with each new album that has dropped to abo...

Re: No more LAYERS please!

What still bothers me about wedding in berlin, is the verse parts where the song goes soft, are actually really beautiful....but theres so little of that in comparison with the constant droning. the final Hotspot version sounds to me like one of those remixes on a B-side by some dude who ruins the b...
