Re: The best remix ever

There are so many great mixes out there. I do think the boys have been spoilt royally with the quality of the YouTube mixes done unofficially, which have often been far better than the versions put out by the boys. I often listen to a playlist of remixes including Jcrz - more than a dream (30’ neour...

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

It is in the top 5 (*) albums they’ve ever made. Timeless (*) For the record the others are (predictably)... please, actually, very, behaviour. My favourite is one thing leads to another. It’s euphoric. It’s epic. The grandmaster remix takes it to another level. It rains on hotspot, super, release, ...

Re: Review: the most common thought from a non PSB fan about the PSB discography

I watched this with a sceptical eye. Overall, it was better than I feared and hats off to him doing his homework. Not sure I agree with his rankings but he explained his with conviction and that’s ok. Absolutely agree with his disdain for wedding in Berlin. It joins tripe such as winner, ego music, ...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

Liking the David Jackson remixes

Something old school which makes them accessible

Good job

Re: Your choices: the debut album that might have been ...

Firstly. Please is still their best ever album. By a long way

Secondly, any notion of leaving out Later Tonight should be dismissed.

Thirdly. This lockdown needs to end soon so we don’t get these silly threads.

Please. Do not Touch

Re: New Boy & I Don't Wanna Mixes Snippets

New boy sounds predictable and pedestrian

Hope it gets better with repeated listens

Not hopeful currently

Re: Poll begins on ranking the "Price trilogy" of albums

Electric. With the others it’s like two bald men arguing over a comb.

They fight for the honour of worst PSB album.

One will win but it doesn’t matter

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

Ok. Fair enough. Let’s hope that this isn’t the last sight of Chris unplugged as such. Be great if he would do a medley of some of their songs !!!

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

Still loving listening to this A couple of thoughts ... 1). This comes out after Tom Watkins died. The man who didn’t rate Chris and wanted Neil to go it alone. A big middle finger to Tom ? 2). I would dearly love to see Chris and piano alone (without the drum machine)... and perhaps see this... Chr...

Re: The official "Where's Drico?" thread

I know there’s another thread.... But deja vu got the better of me

I think I started a similar thread back a while ago (possibly over a decade ago)!!!

Just saying ... our notable absentee has form

And he always (eventually) reappears

Hope you’re ok fella ;-)

Re: Neil in Loose Women (you can watch it here)

Sounds like Glastonbury have asked Neil to keep stum

Perhaps he jumped the gun and they’ve asked Erasure instead ;-)

Re: An Open Mind should be on the album

I guess I must admit I sympathise with the theme of this topic. I would include an open mind instead of the awful ‘you are the one’ and put decide in place of the ‘winneresque’ wedding

It then would be a 7/10 album instead of a generous 6/10

I do like the other tracks though.
