Re: Videography

The age of MTV is over, and so is the age of lush music videos. But they've made some nice lyrics videos for their last songs. On social media is a cleverly edited animation and might be one of my favourite PSB videos, despite being not really a "real" music video.

Re: Bring him back - I know who I want to produce the next album

In Annually 2019, they said they want Trevor Horn to produce A Man From The Future, Stephen Hague would be fun to have another album with.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

So finally received a tracking email from "PostNL" which I'm assuming is the international tracking service they use? I'm in California. Guess I'm still a week plus away from receiving my copy. That's odd. PostNL is Dutch. Speaking of which... A collegue of mine has his copy, but I haven't got it y...

Super still is my least favourite PSB-album by a mile.

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

I think Wedding in Berlin is a wonderful celebration of marriage. I'm not a believer in such an institute, but remember that not so long ago gays were not allowed to marry. In that light, I really appreciate the song. And yes, it's a weird one on this album, but I've grown to like it and appreciate ...

Re: SDE article: How do PSB decide who remixes their songs

I still bought every f'**in single of course, I would never stop getting the singles. That synth-solo in the Before extended mix is top notch. Yeah, I learned from that. Luckily, PSB released a b-side CD single and a remix CD single for later albums, so I usually ended up with only the b-side or PS...

Re: SDE article: How do PSB decide who remixes their songs

I hated almost all remixes that came out after 1991 Same. I was quite shocked when I heard those Rollo and MK remixes of "Can you forgive her?" (with its dumb, repeating-the-same-line-over-and-over on a 4/4 beat, which most later remixes liked to do too). And it didn't get any better when "Liberati...

Re: Hey, Super - that's a really good album

Happiness is great. My girlfriend loves this track. And I think Burn is one of the best things they've done in the past decade. The problem I have with Super is that there's quite a bit filler for me (Sad robot world and Say it to me just don't work for me). I think I rate it somewhere in the middle...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Yeah, Clean Air Hybrid and Method in your madness (i.i.r.c.) were both written during the Super sessions. Good to see they are not leaving unreleased ideas behind. Some other tracks on Hotspot are based on earlier ideas (Monkey Business)

Re: Hotspot - Further Listening

Chances are that Wedding in Berlin will end up on Super Further Listening too - they wrote it during the Super recordings.
