Re: Death of Ennio Morricone

Even if PSB didn't acknowledge him, Milan and Juve did.

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

The first thing I heard was Always On My Mind, and I absolutely loved it. Then I heard Heart and was a bit meh. Domino Dancing seemingly skipped me by, but when I heard Left To My Own Devices, I was hooked for life - age 10. Mine was Heart, actually. The perfect storm of my age (14), significant ex...

Re: Video Remasters

Regarding the homoerotic "references" in Domino dancing — I still don't get them. The "fight" in the sea waves indeed looks unconvincing and more resembling kids in an aqua park than fighters. But that's just bad choreography/acting/direction, isn't it? I don't see anything erotic about it at all (...

What on earth was that bubble about? It's rather amusing to see Neil dressed as Chris.

Songs like Leaving and Invisible are not particulary good on musical terms.
Why?

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Some people don't want to understand that I mean. I'd like PSB could reinvent themselves with new sounds. I said that on the first post of this thread. But of course, if I had to choose between the big quality sound of PSB in the 80's and the low quality sound of songs like Burning the Heather. I p...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Well, I understand why some people love some songs like BTH but that's because it has an easy listening sound and reflective lyrics. Ok you love that. But for me, the song it's depressing and uninspired. Nothing related to the original PSB's sound is reflected on it. No intros, no electonic, no orc...

I guess from tomorrow the new Government guidelines mean in theory Neil and Chris would be able to meet in person and spend time at each other’s houses.
And work on their next album Bubble.

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

This is such an anodyne, predictable list, exemplified by Fat of the Land being on there rather than the far superior Music for the Jilted Generation:

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

"Well, I still like it. I still feel the pathos of it. I always thought there’s a sense of loser-ness with our music. Or a sympathy with the people who are left out. If there’s ever an overt celebration of glamour, it’s probably satire."

They definitely read this forum.
