Not as great as An open mind or Decide but its still OK. Definitely a B-side and wouldn't fit on Hotspot.

I wonder if ‘At rock bottom’ is about George Michael?

So 'At Rock Bottom' is indeed produced by Stuart Price. Sounds very sparse compared to the rest of the tracks from this era, if a bit underwhelming - but it's hard to follow the high standard of 'Decide' and 'An Open Mind'.

Is it, really? The discogs info doesn't mention him?

Yes it is. The official PSB site mentions it!

Those little synth organ stabs remind me of Let Me Love You For Tonight by Kariya.
Good song.
With a Break 4 Love beat. Quite like it on my first listen.

Just bought the cd single. Stuart Price is credited as producer, song is not recorded at Hansa, but at PSB studio and in LA

Sounds like possibly one they’ve worked on remotely together since the Hotspot sessions. I wonder if New Boy is the same.

Decide and Open Mind are rightfully b-sides.

Dang! This is another fine track

We’ve had a bunch of really good bonus tracks as part of the Hotspot era.

It’s growing on me. It reminded me of something else on first play. The music at the beginning is like a slow version of parts of U2 Even Better Than The Real Thing Perfecto Mix

Did nothing to me on first listen… already growing on me as well, third time in.

They kinda phoned it in with this one.

Although I do like the little background vocals that come into that half-chorus towards the end.

One issue I have with this really nice track is,like so many PSB songs that has a really catchy chorus, they always end it too soon. rather I wish they would keep it going alot longer and build it up more.
