Re: "Literally & Pet Shop Boys versus America +": Autographed by Neil & Chris March 19, 2020

Damn! Why these items are always SO LIMITED? Desperatedly want this slipcase edition, but... simply I was too late. Feels like they're feeding mostly profiteers, not fans.

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Returned home back from work last Tuesday's evening to find this pleasant surprise parcel from Germany awaiting me in my room. I almost forgot about this order since they don't have a standart card/PayPal payment options (and I thought they will cancel it eventually). I accurately unsticked the sing...

Apparently, we will have a new single on radio next week... well, who knows?:

Re: Stuart Price Trilogy Top/Worse 5 (2013-2020)

I think it's too early to pick anything because this 'time period" (don't want to call that "an era") is far from conclusion. There will be couple of singles/b-sides forthcoming, and maybe Price will be at helm of rumored "Disco 5" production as well. And everyone's opinion about virtually any song ...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

First verses of "Will-o-the-wisp" gave me strong impression that this song was written as a sort of sequel to "Young offender", even though I know that latter is very unlikely Berlin-linked in any way.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I think I will appreciate "Wedding in Berlin" more in form of instrumental version from CD2 of deluxe edition. These words (can't call it a lyrics) are so banal they almost made my ears bleeds. But the track, even if it don't have anything special in it from a musical point, definitely have a groove...

Happy people

What a track! We need this released as fourth single, with extended version and good 12" remixes. Period.

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

It's certainly better than "Dreamland", but not as good and fresh sounding as "Burning the heather". I agree with Ghost, the track is little underwhelming. First seconds of it almost bought me, but then it goes into rather standard disco/funk vibe, oh well. In the past times it would make an average...

Re: 2 albums?

Exactly my thoughts, when I saw "The Greatest Hits Live" prefix on a newsletter from PSB. I expected next GH album around 2021-2022, for 40th anniversary of their meeting, and I still thinking it's too soon and risky to release it along with the new studio album, but we'll see. Maybe they will relea...

Re: September single...???

6/10 It reminds me of "Yes" songs, "More than a dream" and "The way it used to be" in particular, as if this album was produced by Price and squeezed to the lenght of a radio single. Not my cup of tea, but it sounds quite contemporary thanks to Years & Years, I guess. Olly's voice sounds very femine...

Did anyone had received a refund for Annually preorder? I've preordered my copy along with Super tourbook at 25th January (I was working hard on day of its announce), and while my preorder still listed as "Confirmed" in my order history, my card was refunded yesterday. This forenoon I wrote a messag...

Re: Learning English through PSB songs

Well, definitely not "The night I fell in love", "I want a lover", "Euroboy", "We all feel better in the dark" and similar stuff. And not overtly mature songs like "Can you forgive her?" and "You only tell me you love me when you're drunk", I guess. "The dictator decides", "Love is a bourgeois cons...
