A new JCRZ remix, Hoping For A Miracle.
Really good quality. Compliments the original track but changes it to a disco stomper.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

They have done a good job of the radio edit, I have re-created the Radio Edit myself and played it a few times and it flows really well.

Burning The Heather / Decide is, for me, the greatest a-side/b-side combination in over 20 years.
Absolutely spot on, I feel the same.

Blade Remixes Entire Hotspot Album

:D Blade who has made several unofficial remixes over the years of Pet Shop Boys tracks has now remixed all of the "Hotspot" album and he has done a mighty fine job. He has uploaded the remixed album on Soundcloud, where you can stream the album. Personally I think this is his best work to date. Don...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

"Will-O-The-Wisp", reminded me of early Pet Shop Boys, a great opening track. "You Are The One", a good PSB ballad, really like the piano on the track, oozes class, love it! "Happy People", has a "Bilingual" vibe, nice house piano, uplifting, but average by PSB standards. "Dreamland", awful and unb...

Re: Rate Monkey Business (edit version)

I thought they couldn't get any worse than "Dreamland" but they have managed it with this track, the worst PSB single ever for me (closely followed by the aforementioned "Dreamland") "Burning The Heather" on the other hand is an excellent track.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Good grief what a let down this single is, I loathed "Dreamworld", still do, "Burning The heather is brilliant, "Monkey Business" is a mess, worries me they have released this as a single. The album seems to be shaping up like it will be a bit of all sorts, maybe leftover tracks from previous sessio...

Re: Do you think the 2 first albums of the triology have any real contender of the PSB classics?.

On Electric, just 1 track "Love is a bourgeois construct". On Super, "The Dictator Decides", "Burn". I already think "Burning The Heather" off the new album is a gem of a track. It will be interesting to put together a compilation of the tracks I do like across all 3 Stuart Price produced albums. Me...

Re: Burning the heather

"Decide" is a superb B Side, love it when that synth melody kicks in at 2:37 on the original version, like "Open Mind" this should be on the album instead of "Dreamland".
