Really! It’s a long time since they were on this, 2009/10 I think.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Hmmm, not sure about this. Sounds very much like a mediocre filler track. No tune or chorus. Sounds a bit Jamiroquai!

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

If anyone in Germany can buy a copy for me I’ll send an instant PayPal payment. I just couldn’t get the site to work!

Cheers

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Waking up to this devastating news this morning.

To quote “Decide”........”oh, what have we done?”


Brilliant track though. Love how it starts off so simply then ends as a huge euphoric track!

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

I’ve never seen the point in instrumental versions of songs. If a track is an instrumental originally then cool but if a track is a song with vocals then what’s the point in the instrumental? I never listen to the Elysium instrumentals. I mean if you want to listen to the album, why would you choos...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I'm not overly optimistic about a song only becoming tolerable after multiple listens. I'm sure if I heard any of the aural graffiti in the charts now I'd almost find it tolerable after several plays. More a sign of familiarity than anything else. Given that we all know Bernard the Heathen now I fe...

Jesus...give the guy a break, he’s only wishing you a merry Christmas - the least you could do is say it back to him. Christ. Bet you’re fun at Christmas. Merry Christmas N...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Is the wedding song like bourgeois construct ? It wishes. Honestly, and I hate saying this, as an album track, especially as the closer on THIS album, it’s terrible. If I’d received it as a wedding gift I’d have loved it and jumped up and down on the dance floor to it with my new bride. But I close...
