Re: When you stop liking the music as much

you cant rank the albums properly until you've let them breathe for at least a couple years. I find I am really enjoying their newer music, but.... their albums as of late have been more miss than hit. I used to like at least 5-7 songs on each new album....with each new album that has dropped to abo...

Re: No more LAYERS please!

What still bothers me about wedding in berlin, is the verse parts where the song goes soft, are actually really beautiful....but theres so little of that in comparison with the constant droning. the final Hotspot version sounds to me like one of those remixes on a B-side by some dude who ruins the b...

Re: No more LAYERS please!

Ive always preferred the everything and the kitchen sink style of PSB instrumentation. I think its in their blood.
They cant help themselves. I think there’s almost no chance of a sort of stripped down albun

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

Yeah, its going to be a slow drizzle ending to all of this rather than an abrupt one. but when it is over, I think once the jitters passes and people get confident again, I think people are going to appreciate travel, and concerts more than they ever did. I know I will. as for now, I'm working, shop...

Re: What do you think PSB are going to do this year?

I hate to think this way but I cant even really listen to Hotspot anymore. its just too fused with the event. even the cover which I used to love I dislike now because it just seems to perfectly capture 2020. dreary.

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Electric Ballroom

On a side note, is anyone familiar with cameo.com? its a site where artists of all kind will make personalized videos for you for a fee. yes, I know everyone here is probably above that, but while the site seems to be overloaded with alot of C-level celebrities there are some good ones here and ther...

Re: If you've done nothing wrong.....

I still think Integral and we're all criminals now are two great pieces of music and lyrics. I also loved Neils little side note with the we're all criminals now" track when it was released "yes...we're still on this". as in writing about the issues of ID via song a second time. lmao

Re: Domino Dancing (2020 version)

I actually think the westendgirls domino dancing backing track is fantastic and would have loved to hear neil singing over it. it reminds me of the versions of their songs they played on the nightlife tour...really uber electronic.

"We're the petshopboys" is in my top 10 of all time favorite Neil vocals. his vocal is huge and shimmering.

Re: Future duet

Even if they both died simultaneously, they won’t get a number one. Michael Jackson, Prince,George Michael Bowie and Whitney have all died and didn’t get posthumous UK number one singles. Damn what a loss George Michael is. I still remember being at the movie theater to take the family to see one o...

Re: PSB vs NO Tour Merch (just for fun)

That would be kinda funny though....have a shirt saying PSB tour and on the back how they usually list all the places and venues they would have played just have a cancelled next to each venue.

Re: The Theory about Disco 5

Everyone seems to expect Disco 5. they dont seem to give any thought to another release they could possibly make. and its the kind of release that strikes terror in the heart of many a PSB fan. deep disappointment .....and extreme irritation. yes,I'm talking about a live album.
