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...

Leaving is a classic PSB song, simply fantastic.
:D Certainly agree with you on that.

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".

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Instrumental version is better than nothing but would have preferred a dub album or the album remixed/extended versions.

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

When people say “awful production” do they even know what that actually means? Dreamland doesn’t have “awful production” what you mean is “you don’t like it”. It isn’t “awfully produced” , I’m sure Stuart Price hasn’t awfully produced anything. At best you probably mean you don’t like how it’s been...

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

How on earth "An Open Mind" has been used for a B side god only knows, by far the superior track in this release. Dreamland, I've tried to like it, but sorry, I can't stand it, awful song, awful production, the worst PSB single in a long time. No Boundaries is growing on me, every time I hear it I g...
