Re: Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

I may have missed it, but where did Neil say what Hoping For A Miracle is about?

Re: New single - I don't wanna

It's really divisive being a PSB fan isn't it? Yeah that amazes me too. Is there any other band whose die-hard fans are so divided over tastes and opinions about the band's music? The music (not lyrics) of I don't wanna just doesn't go out of my head these days! I'd call the divided fans on this fo...

Re: Where the streets have no love ...

As good as any album. Single releases like this, that can stand alone and be played straight through as often as you want, are what music lovers want, aren’t they. Was just thinking about this sort of thing last night. What would be everyone's preferred selection of four songs from each single rele...

Re: FL does not make Disco masterpiece obsolete

Disco desperately needs to be remastered (if only to fix the sudden drop in sound quality and volume when you use one the tracks in play list). That's what 'replay gain'/'smart gain' is for in media players - brings the volume of quiet tracks up and loud tracks down based on each track's average vo...

Re: It couldn't happen here soundtrack album

5:07 is also the track time for the album version. Still most likely it's the Video Version as that's the one heard in the film itself, plus Discogs states Julian Mendelssohn as the producer - he only produced the single versions. This shows the cassette's credits as both Suburbia and Always on my ...

Re: It couldn't happen here soundtrack album

Greetings, Someone asked on discogs, and so will I - which version of Suburbia is on it? Apparently the video version, which didn't appear on CD until PopArt. Possibly, although looking at Discogs, the version on PopArt clocks in at 5:11, whereas the version on the soundtrack clocks in at 5:30. I a...

Re: Love comes quickly mix discrepancy on Disco

Did the original vinyl release of Disco have an edit of the track to fit all of side 2 on? Nope.I have the original vinyl and CD and they're identical as per https://www.psb-catalogue.com/discopic.htm . Must just be a typo, as Shep Pettibone Mastermix is listed as 7:34 for the Love Comes Quickly si...

Re: It couldn't happen here soundtrack album

Someone asked on discogs, and so will I - which version of Suburbia is on it? Apparently the video version, which didn't appear on CD until PopArt. Anyone know if it featured the demo or single version of 'Always On My Mind'? It was the demo version in the movie itself but I don't know which versio...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

I also sincerely wish they release a dvd for HIGHLIGHTS or the full MCMLXXXIX tour! Didn’t they already rule that out years ago? The reason was that the footage isn’t up to scratch or something like that. I recall them saying somewhere in the last few years that both ICHH and MCMLXXXIX (in full) wo...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Enjoy this on first couple of listens, as I do love a good PSB ballad, but oh my God 'Wedding In Berlin' might be their worst ever song - I've physically cringed both times I've played it. On that basis alone my first impressions rating of the trilogy now is 1. Super; 2. Electric; 3.Hotspot. but thi...
