Re: swedish band Ghost covers "its a sin"

Hamburg-located Gamma Ray's metal version is far better in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d0YUXRyrNQ I disagree...they even copied the "20 seconds and counting" bit. The music is pretty good but his voice is not. I prefer Ghost's version and I'm happy they took it in a new direction a...

Re: Expectations

I would prefer it if they made the next album with another producer, "Super" had it's moments but "Electric" was awful, the only Pet Shop Boys album I haven't bought, aside from Love is a bourgeois construct & Flourescent", nothing else I liked. "Super" is definitely better. Not sure what to expect...

Re: Reissues project

Yeah the remastered albums are exact duplicates of the original releases with no booklets but I'm not complaining. I needed Nightlife and Release on vinyl and then Bilingual will complete my entire PSB vinyl collection (well I need a new Very LP as well cause the one I have has very poor sound quali...

Re: Bilingual vinyl no re release ?

It is true of most of us, looking forward to having it on vinyl. I don't have Very either, and bought Nightlife about 2 years ago. I did not have Release until now, and it's far more gorgeous than I recalled, even if it could have been SO much better with a different track listing (not going there ...

Hi thanks for the info
Fingers crossed it gets released this year
Bilingual is the only album I don't have on vinyl
I think that is true for most of us. I know I could never justify the 100-300 dollar price tag on eBay for it. It will be released this summer.

Re: Bruce Weber

I will say I believe most people who claim rape/harassment but never file lawsuits. It's the people claiming rape/harassment years after the fact who run straight to the court to file lawsuits and refuse to file a police report. I take a lot of slack for standing up for actor Casey Affleck but those...

Re: Reissues project

There is not going to be a box set including "some relevant bonus material" or anything like it. m+ Well I hope you're wrong in this case. It's not like a vast generation of youngsters is salivating at the perspective of buying a new edition of Very, so at the moment I can't see any sense in the 85...

Re: Tears for Fears - does it sound like PSB?

Totally disagree re: Hurts. All of their albums have been outstanding. They've evolved somewhat, but maintained a strong song-writing sensibility. As for "Boyfriend", it's effectively Art of Noise meets Prince (again?) - and it bloody brilliant. TFF are also amazing, although if I'm honest I'm only...

Re: Liza Minnelli - Results Expanded 4 disc edition

The sound is much better then the previous reissue. I played them back to back on my car stereo to and from work and I have to turn the volume up way high on the previous reissue. The booklet is also amazing but to use someone else's work without credit is disgusting! Too bad they couldn't get the b...

Re: Tears for Fears - does it sound like PSB?

The crap they play here on the radio stations is just god-awful. I really miss the 80's and 90's. I have a soft spot for Eurythmics and Annie Lennox. They have a great discography. If I remember correctly David Stewart was inspired by Tom Petty to play more guitar and less synths which is probably w...

Re: Tears for Fears - does it sound like PSB?

I think "I love you but I'm lost" along with Hurts's "Spotlights" are two of this years best songs. Loved Hurts first album, second not so much but still a few good songs on it, third was poor and this one bored me to death on the first listen. they need to go away for a couple of years and get bac...

Re: Tears for Fears - does it sound like PSB?

It’s not a bad track tbh. Personally, I’ve never seen the appeal in TFF. To me they’re a Poundstretcher Eurythmics. I never really thought of them as comparable. Sure, both were, effectively, duos and both had some huge hits in the same era, but the only thing I'd compare them on would be in their ...
