What's your opinion about that?

#1 Post by Nickname »

Trevor Horn and PSB are working together and probably Trevor Horn is going to give them some ideas about the album.
TH used to like making long versions of the songs (Left To My Own Devices) or dividing any song in part 1 & part 2 (like Seal's albums).

What's your opinion about it?, Would you like something like that in a PSB album?

in moderation it might be cool for 1 or 2 songs. but otherwise I like the usual standard 3 or 4 minute pop songs.

Yeah, I am agree. I think it could be nice, at least for one or two songs.

No. And I hope that he does not influence them THAT much.

Well, Left to my own devices wasn't a bad thing.

I certainly don't think it's bad thing.

I wonder what Stephen Hague is up to these days...

According to Neil, Trevor Horn wanted the new album sounded like Pink Floyd.

i agree as well, maybe more than 2 or 3 songs would be a bit boring (??) :roll:

I have a sneaky feeling we're going to get something a little different in terms of format to previous albums.

After all, not only are they 'Floyding it up' with TH, but they've also done a number of Electro style tracks with Drama Society..

What about a 2x6-track LP on 2 CDs? Like Introspective twice over?

If their mandate is to write less personally, and more about 'the world', then their strict adherence to the four-minute pop-song may no longer be as relevant.

I would love some kind of 'sonic Odyssey' - i.e. great pop songs but with extended intros/'dreamlike' middle sections etc...

However, I don't want 'dance mixes'.

Would be interested to hear what others think about this idea..

It is great to hear they are working again with Trevor Horn and such kind of producers.

Working with the latest trendy dj and that sort of things seemed not to have worked properly in the last 10 years.

I think despite all the speculation, the product we end up with when they release their new CD will be......
the usual fair. probably about 10 tracks with 8 being the usual PSB songs with maybe 2 oddball tracks that sound like something new or diffrent. not the drastic change some might think.
and thats fine by me.

I remember in one PSB documentary (maybe it was Really) Trevor Horn said that Chris didn´t like some orchestral part they were recording at all and Chris was so furious. But maybe he´ll do good job.
Interviewer:
-What would you tell someone about yourself if you wanted to impress them?

Chris:
-I´ve got a 12-inch plonker.
