Re: Keeping An Open Mind on An Open Mind

"An Open Mind" is the kind of gift they give longtime followers, and I'm pleased they are still giving us tunes of this quality on EPs. I actually think "Dreamland" is stronger as a single, but for what it is, as a longtime fan "An Open Mind" is the latest in their superb b-sides. Yeah I still pref...

Re: New Album Cover..?

Can anyone find the alternative Actually cover they once considered?

This potential one feels very painterly to me, similar to the old Actually one.

Summer/winter vibes.

Open Mind might be too upbeat for the album.

Re: New Album Cover..?

If this is it, I like it.

Re: One thought about the PSB songs we have listened this year

Has it been confirmed if the new album will be downtempo? We know nothing, they always change their minds anyway. If Dreamland sticks out on the album in a So Hard sort of way, that could mean it's relatively high energy on a slow album. Or it could mean it's relatively pop on an art album. Or mayb...

The Was it worth it dub mix is fantastic - complete with sample from Enjoy the silence!
It's nice, but I couldn't ever hear the connection to the original track. Practically a new instrumental.

Re: Do You Consider Disappointed a part of the "official" canon?

After Discography finished with "Was It Worth It" things felt risky, with Neil singing about moving into a new love life and somehow there was a vibe of shedding the PSB coat. But to then pop up mysteriously as a featured vocal... in probably his most raw and melancholy love song ever? Did he feel l...
