Re: New Literally

Just got mine. The 3rd Price album is 'going to sound slightly different' ...'a move on from the previous two' That's pretty much all there is on the new album, except that they hope it will be released in September.... Thanks ghost, Great to know the next album will be different from the last two....

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

'Agenda' is a great title and I don't mind the demo-ish sound to '...Stupidity' but the lyrics to that song are trite and adolescent as eff. If they were hoping to ignite intelligent debate about current events with this song then they've failed. I think that it is obviously a reference to Donald T...

Re: The Quietus does Introspective

Wow! A great read indeed.

Over the years “Introspective” has slowly but surely clawed its way towards the top of my list of pet shop boys albums.

Behavior is still king but Introspective is a close second now.

BTW both of them sound better than ever on the the new remasters.

Re: Reissues project

Well, I have had these now for almost a week and have been listening to them constantly. The first thing you need to know about these remasters is to play them LOUD. They are quieter than the 2001 Sets. This is especially so for Behaviour. If you play them loud on a good set of stereo speakers you a...

Re: Reissues project

This thread is 156 pages long now and I'm late to the party. I haven't ordered ANY of the new Further Listening editions either on vinyl or CD so far (call myself a fan?) because I'm deeply cynical about the quality based on the previous 2001 editions. Can anyone help or point to some posts in this...

Re: In conversation

He said they were working on a song about populism called “Give Stupidity a Chance” Hmm, interesting strategy to win people over to your point of view - call the voters stupid. Wasn't a blinding success for Hilary Clinton, but always worth another go. That's the spirit! In all fairness she did win ...

Re: PSB moment at Royal Wedding

I watched bits of it and must say it was interesting for me ( an American ) to see. Such a Display of wealth and power, we just don’t have that here. Our current President would burn half the world just to have that happen once for him. The cult of personality is both an awesome and slightly terrify...

Re: Reissues project

So Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money) (Original Twelve-Inch Mix), is it just me or is there a slight distortion/crackle on the right speaker? Starts 11 sec in. I can hear it on my CD,apple music and Spotify I’m not hearing it. Just got a new set of left & right front speakers by Polk and it s...

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

I was delighted to read that the filming of the forthcoming ROH show is intended to be used for a DVD/Blu Ray video I'm still fascinated that DVD and Blu Ray are still a thing?! Surely they need to release this as an HD streaming or downloadable video (with Extras) in addition to physical formats. ...

Re: Expectations

nonetheless, i love Bourgeois, Dictator and even Hold on. Totally agreed with these tracks! And so glad that I've found someone else who loves Hold On! I think it's fantastic but boy are we in the minority on that one! :lol: I too love “hold on” I don’t really get all the hate for this track.

Re: Reissues project

I relented and purchased all 3 on CD. The way I look at it, the original remasters were done in 2001. So that's 17 additional years of audio technology and expertise available to whoever has done the remastering this time around. That's more time elapsed than there was between any of the original r...
