Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

“Only the dark” sounds like it could be from an ‘80s John Hughes movie!! And that’s a compliment! 😎

Re: I don’t wanna

I agree with CroMagnun... this track shares some DNA with “Building a wall” and that’s an exciting thing!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Anyone else notice that the lyrics in “I don’t wanna” sort of answer and rebuke those of Kylie in “Dancing”? 😲

Kylie’s Dancing:
When I go out, I wanna go dancing.

PSB:
I don’t wanna go out
I don’t wanna go dancing.

Re: Happy people

Despite being uptempo and having a “euphoric” sound, there is a real sadness to the song. It’s also right out of the early 90s; heck, it could’ve been on Very! It sort of longs to go back in time, to a more innocent time when we were young. That comes through the song.

You just know that Will O The Wisp intro will be the new intro on tour if they modify the tracks they play when they tour this fall. Like Axis and Inner Sanctum was. A grand powerful opening.
Hell yes!! Absolutely!! :clap:

Anyone take notice of the way Neil says “rented flat” in Will-o-the-wisp? You can almost see the sly grin and it makes me chuckle!!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I wrote some thoughts earlier as I’m currently immersed in Hotspot, but my post seemingly disappeared!!

Blown away by the opener, Will-o-the-wisp!! So dramatic, intense, and those synths!! Wow!!

And really enjoying Wedding in Berlin which is quite “WTF???” in a bizarre yet fun way!!

Re: Snippets

Against all the odds, Wedding in Berlin has grown on me a fair bit. Dare I say... I actually enjoy it now. I played the album through twice on headphones late last night and I didn't even consider skipping WIB. It's daft and fun. Looking forward to finally being able to talk to you all about the en...

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

“Piles of toast and broken promises / Among the books and pens and reading glasses” One of my favourite lines from the PSB. So evocative and beautifully composed. There are some tracks that I will never get bored of hearing and The End of the World is right up there on that list. A quintessential a...
