Axis and then from Super; "Burn" (and probably the whole album - I LOVE Super - I am JUST getting in to its layers - which are deep and hidden.)

I have a major problem with Burn. I can't listen to it even if it is a quite good song. It is way too similar to Tom Hooker's Looking for Love, and everytime I hear Burn the other song occupies my mind.
It sounds like a complete rip off.

This question is disrespectful and exactly something nostalgic fans would go for. Maybe stop listening to a band if they're not "just like in the good old days". At least I'm grateful that most of you enjoy the most pandering gay track from the last album. I do too, but I enjoy many more.

I wish I could list Burn. It has some of the right elements to bring that euphoria, but in the end it's a let down. Part of the issue is the repetitive chorus. But more so, it just doesn't build up properly. It drops off in the wrong places and the mixing just doesn't allow for a true euphoric experience. There are almost no lyrics aside from the chorus and it doesn't have any hidden layers that add to that true PSB experience.

Of course Axis has no lyrics at all. However, the album mix takes you through a complete journey. It truly is "electric". Gives me chills everytime. It has real excitement whereas Burn feels sawed off at the edges. The single mix of Axis kind of ruins things, although it's not as bad as, say, the single mix of Vocal which is a complete disaster.

I love Inside a dream. So electric, so dancey so evocative.

I think its repetitive chorus is an asset... the song is about a simple thing; a simple emotion. There doesn't have to be a complex chorus. It feels like a night out on Fire Island in 1981 (I was only a kid then but that's how I imagine it would feel!).

I think the explination about why I make a reference to the old days is quite good. I don't see any disrepectful on that.

Exactly, and before that Leaving and A face like that. But I have to confess Wiedersehen was overwhelming.

Love is a bourgeois construct

btw there was no "old days" for me. I entered the fandom in the mid 2000s so the old days have been long gone.

I came in in 1987 as a little kid, guess it was the It's a sin-hype but my first record was Disco so the first excitement was that whole album, the Love comes quickly-mix seemed so long and mysterious, the West End girls-mix more like a journey. I have never wandered off the PSB-path after that.
