Re: Annually is available to pre order

I was hoping there would be a cd release with this for MUSIK I am super happy they chose "My Beautiful Laundrette" instead because it is not available in studio quality anywhere. Musik was released digitally which is way better than nothing. Are these songs the cast versions or do they feature voca...

Re: POLL: What album is Hotspot most similar to?

I would say Nightlife, especially when it comes to the overall theme and mood of the album. Production wise it comes, of course, closer to the previous two albums. I am tired of the Stuart Price sound, so I'm thankful they are finished with him!

Re: Hotspot ratings

I've upgraded from 5 to 6, but I can't go any further. I find Hotspot to be the worst of the Price Trilogy. The production is a mess and it just doesn't sound good. The ballads are the best songs. "Wedding in Berlin" is a really bad way to finish the album; the magnicifent "Burning the heather" shou...

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

By the way, before this new album Nightlife was my least favourite PSB album, but I'm not sure now... Hotspot is definitely at the bottom! I'm not just into their "nightclub" stuff.

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

My reaction to this was very much like my initial reaction to Behaviour. Not as much banging and stomping tracks. Its not Electric, no is is Super. Not much banging? Well, on Behaviour there is "So hard" and that's it. On Hotspot you get at least five of them. Behaviour is my personal favourite, I ...

Re: I don’t wanna

I really like this one! My instant favourite on the album. I like that it's a bit old-fashioned PSB, more simple production and a catchy tune. [emoji106]

Re: Hotspot booklet

Yes, I wonder about that too. Why no lyrics? This is the first album since Very not to include the lyrics in the booklet!

Re: Pet Shop Boys Community Facebook Group

There are already several PSB fan groups on Facebook. I'm a member of one called Pet Shop Boys Fanatics. It has just about 2,500 members, but I've seen there are other PSB groups with more. Compare that number to for example the group OMD that has nearly 9,000. I think a PSB group should have way mo...

Re: [Setlist] PSB at Venue 1 & Hyde Park (14./15. Sep 19)

I think it was Paninaro. That's correct. But Chris said, that he don‘t really like So Hard, he likes Before and One And One Make Five. :) It's frustrating for me because I think So Hard is some of his finest work! I think that too! I wish they would perform it live. By the way, isn't it strange tha...

Re: Rate

Let's say 5 out of 10. The song is very generic, and the mix sounds flat and lifeless. Hard to remember the chorus after several listenings. I don't mind the other singer, even though I'm not familiar with his band before. A duet is not what I had hoped from from PSB however. Disappointing release! ...

Re: Final results of poll on early, overall impressions of the "Musik" songs

I just listened to these tracks! I didn't know the EP is released on Spotify:
https://open.spotify.com/track/4G4xwIGq ... WyNLTISD1g

It sounds like "Run girl run" is the original version, but "Friendly fire" is a new recording.
