Re: 2 albums?

Greetings Drem, Oh, and I sincirely hope they won't use "Dreamworld" for any kind of releases. It's so un-PSB, so Erasure-ish (have to said that with all due respect to the latter band which I like too). If there's a CD/DVD release as there was with Pandemonium and Inner Sanctum, you can just about ...

What the *uck is up with these emojis, why are they giant in desktop mode?
I was just thinking the same! Glad it's not just me. Can we put a ban on emoji's for the forseeable future...
It's only certain ones though. ;)

But yes... it is a pointless distraction.

Re: Disturbing PSB dreams

The only dream I can recall that had PSB themselves in it, was a strange and rather baffling dream, not unlike It Couldn't Happen Here. I quite liked it there, wherever it was. I do have regular dreams though about 12" singles and CD singles that don't exist in real life, many of them by PSB. I find...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Greetings Future Lover, Nah, I wouldn't call this an ad hominem, that's too fancy. Your twatty and toxic holier-than-thou attitude makes perusing the forum a completely unpleasant experience. What you would call something, doesn't change what it is. ...bile and vitriol Please desist from projecting ...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Greetings, It was a crowded competition, but I hereby award you 2019's 'worst post of the year' award. Congrats. Maybe generalize into Worst Poster too. The ignore option isn't strong enough. That's kind. I'll give the next single 11/10, just so you'll both forgive me. :roll: In the meantime, please...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Greetings, Neil and Chris are making the albums they want to make. Sure, but that doesn't mean that we have to pretend they haven't entered a second career nadir. ...the point being that staying with the same producer isn't necessarily a bad thing. Agreed, but if the results are sub-par, you've got ...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Greetings, I can understand people not liking that they’ve released a contemporary pop song featuring a contemporary pop act to promote an album and world tour. I find it less logical to keep expecting PSB to release another It’s a Sin in 2019. Sure, but is anyone here really doing or expecting that...

I expect the album version will allow the various elements to breathe more and I think It should be reappraised by those that really don’t like this song.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Greetings,

I suspect a "greatest hits tour" is a "farewell tour" that desperately wants to identify as something other than a "farewell tour"...

Re: September single...???

Greetings, I'm not all that enthusiastic about this. I think it was Trevor Horn who said that in each verse you should add a new element and change something compared to the prior verse, in order to build excitement and make the song more dynamic and exciting. It could be a change in the hi-hat patt...

Re: September single...???

Greetings, I can never understand why Bands/Artists release singles midweek, it’s as if the charts don’t matter anymore [emoji28] "Legacy acts" like PSB are going to have the vast percentage of sales done in the first week of release, so their trajectory is straight up, straight down and try to peak...

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

Greetings, Greetings, I sort of wish Neil and Chris would confirm that the quality (or lack thereof) is intentional. I feel similarly regarding this year's releases. It reminds me of the Nightlife / Release era, where the instrument/sound selection was strange. Retro. :) What are you on about? Night...

Re: September single...???

Is January still an "easy" month for chart placings, or have streaming/downloads diluted that old theory that helped get Drunk into the Top 10, 20 years previous?
