Re: Weak production

I’m no expert at all but this pm I listened to the instrumental Elysium songs and they sounded incredibly rich. Perhaps now the boys don’t have the backing of Parlophone, they have to economise a bit. Also, by having such dud mastering now, gives multiple opportunities in the future for re-mastering...

Re: Memories of PSB live in 2002

23rd July 2002 I saw the PSB live On the banks of lake Geneva at Nyon for Paleo I’ve seen them in many places but that was certainly one of the most picturesque. It was the release tour era and it would be fair to say the crowd had a mixed reaction to some of the songs. Especially Love is a catastro...

Re: Keeping An Open Mind on An Open Mind

For the first time perhaps ever, we’ll ok since Winner which I try to erase from my memory, it lacks a certain element that I like. Give...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Judging by the pretty big positive reaction (apart from on here) this release looks like it will be the boys most successful since Love etc... which was released 10 years ago Solid coverage and radio play across many stations that haven’t played a psb track for possibly decades One other point... cr...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

I gave it an 8. Catchy and infectious. Like all great pop

It’s true to itself. Unashamedly celebratory. It’s honest.

Euphoric even.

Amazing they can still thrill like this. Just amazing

But it’s not... 60 mins max

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

Hi Blueswan Why not simply ask Pete who remixed the tracks about what was the intention in presenting the songs as demo-like ? He’s on twitter as cheeky Pete and comes across as amenable if you ask politely For me, I prefer the production of this to super. I prefer raw over over done. I still believ...
