Willo is absolutely not single material. It's a great opener/banger (my fave song on the album), but it's too high energy for a single.
agreed - probably too 'complex' for radio friendly listen and doesn't have an immediate hook.

Re: Hotspot reviews

Lots of love out there in general for this album. Averaging around 4 star reviews I think.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I'm loving this album, especially Wedding. Has anyone noticed that there are church bell like sound effects at the end of Happy People? Yep spotted that ... my thinking was that Wedding was going to segue directly in from this as that seems to start with the same bell sounds. Someone will be able t...

Anyone take notice of the way Neil says “rented flat” in Will-o-the-wisp? You can almost see the sly grin and it makes me chuckle!!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Yeah the album version of BTH requires me to re-learn it all over again ... I can see why they did the radio edit ... both versions are ace to be fair.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Shared DNA .... It took me a while but I’ve cracked the code

Wedding in Berlin and Big Time Sensuality by Björk ...
