Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

It's not exactly on a par with Alternative, is it? :-/ It would be a very weird collection, starting with an edit of Fugitive from a German-only CD single, followed by four cover versions then one original (Je ne sais quoi) then two more covers, a couple of demos and then jumping over to the x2 b-s...

Re: Grauniad Laundrette review

A standard review. It seems to be a kind of cliché, but we'll get new music so it's ok.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Is it me or does No Boundaries sound familiar? Is it an old song being revisited? Great news regarding the Dreamland formats. You are not alone, I had the same deja vù feeling. It remembers something that was in a PSB list of titles, unreleased songs on literally or online. Maybe we are wrong, but ...

Re: Ausfahrt = EXIT

The song is about Brexit and the word Ausfahrt is because it's the Berlin metro. i think the boys wouldn't have a problem saying so if it was their last work The song is about refugees, it seems. Neil explained that in the preconcert interview. Yes, it is what he's got on his mind. I heard it too, ...

Re: Dreamland...is that it?

Yes, there seems to be a grave misunderstanding as to what 'nadir' means, or alternatively people have VERY high expectations. Yes there is! I think that we should all assuming nadir as: "lowest point of PSB career" Their nadir is obviously higher than any other's people zenith on this forum, and t...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Here's an HD link for those who can't watch otherwise https://vimeo.com/360165381 At 1:12.27 you can see the bit where Neil comes in too early for the second verse of Domino Dancing. Is Neil singing along with a recorded voice of himself also audible to the audience? Or is he singing alone with his...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

I don't know why but it remembers me of Anastascia: I'm Outta Love.
Doesn't sound similar, but after the chorus I start singing "let me free, and take me out of this misery"

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Not a fan of those ‘ooohs’ at the start of Always on my mind though Totally aggreed! I don't even know what's the meaning behind it?! :? Hey let those ‘ooohs’ alone, I love them, even if there absolutely no meaning behind them they sound damn good. The beginning of Always on my mind and the closure...

Re: Ausfahrt = EXIT

Sorry, long post and sorry for mistakes and my english. This negativity is absolutely natural at this point. If you look at PSB carreer they went through all the phases that a long lasting celebrity could live. Early excitement and sudden succes. PSB as a One Hit Wonder? No way. They went through th...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Well, as my 7 years old daughter said: "It's nice". That's it. The production is standard PSB, already heard several times, the chorus is catchy and it is danceable. Quit good, the lyrics are also standard PSB, Dreamland is quite obvuoisly a person, and Homeland is going to be cheated. If we stretch...
