Has anyone noticed the poor mastering for this song, the same as the one for Dreamland ?
What happened with Tim Young ?
He must have serious hearing problems. All of these new tracks sound awful. Allready anticipating the remastered version of Hotspot.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries / An Open Mind single - October

I'm usually not posting likes or hates on individual tracks. But hell, An Open Mind is a productional masterpiece. If this is a left-over from the recording sessions for the new album, how good is the material that WAS selected? Or was this a classical case of "should have been on the album"? (Like ...

Re: Do You Consider Disappointed a part of the "official" canon?

Did he feel like he had to go into a different setting to sing this? He was inspired by Désenchantée by Mylène Farmer. Which explains why it sounds like it sounds. Disappointed not only closes the gap musically between Discography and Very. The videoclip is full of computer animations. It's looks l...

Re: September single...???

The amount of scrutiny on here to all aspects of the guys work is quite remarkable. You think so? I don't think so. Pet Shop Boys were about brilliant music, brilliant videoclips, brilliant photographs, brilliant artwork. For me becoming interested in them was about the whole package. What's left o...

Re: September single...???

Except the Elysium sleeve which was both shite and sloppily produced. The Elysium campaign was actually the last one with original ideas of Farrow quality. The Memory of the future sleeves were brilliant. If it takes you two google queries to come up with a page that's actually full of images that ...

Re: September single...???

Bitch, bitch, bitch… it’s a good sleeve, and the matching video is great. It's not up to the standards one might expect from an agency like Farrow. We used to have sleeves where you would think: "wow, I wish I had thought of that". And the level we're getting now is more like "erm, I could have tho...

Re: September single...???

I'm not annoyed by the use of a specific font. I'm annoyed by the fact that recent artwork lacks inspiration and originality. The Agenda artwork was a stock photo with a title photoshopped on it, and that level is being maintained for the artwork of the new album as it seems.

Re: September single...???

Well now it's clear where the "inspiration" came from. There's a book about the Berlin U-Bahn. https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/528f5a14e4b019edff2d6046/1527518586328-6LTL3S37A803XSRLXG68/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kB4nORySMPwEDaddUNIRril7gQa3H78H3Y0txjaiv_0fDoOvxcdMmMKkDsyUqMSsMWxHk725yiiHCCL...

Re: September single...???

So the current state of the art of Farrow design is to take stock pictures from the internet and photoshop a title over it? Wow... I would be ashamed to be linked to such practice if I was them. :wall: https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/alexanderplatz-subway-station-berlin-germany-berlin-germany-decemb...
