Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I think it's a great sounding album. IMO the best in the trilogy. It defo has that Berlin sound (whatever that is.. :D ) and track after track it just delivers. The opening 4 tracks. Wow. Happy People is also an absolute classic. And.. dare I say it..! I really like Wedding in Berlin.. I love the we...

Re: Album closers / final track - do you have a favourite?

80s - Why don't we live together? Such a tune & great vocals from Neil. Love the spoken intro.. 90s - footsteps - controversial maybe (..!). I've always loved the dance beats on Nightlife & this track is the perfect come down to a night in the city. And the frogs croaking at the end, classic. 00s - ...

Re: New Album Cover..?

Sorry guys, have to disagree.. loving the new album cover! In true boys style it's a total contrast to Super..think it might be a bit of a grower! Like the fact that they're almost underselling thereselves.. that's a very psb thing to do right? This is what makes them an intresting group - they don'...

Re: Weak production

Elysium is beautifully produced.. always liked it.. I love it when the boys do downbeat.. it's the behaviour of this decade so far!

Stuart Price's production has been top draw! Electric and Super have been a breath of fresh air.. looking forward to the third instalment!

Re: Vocal - A Discography-Class Single

Vocal is great.. It's an excellent psb single.. I agree with you guys, it's very eurphoric and I love the lyrics - 'I like the singer, he's lonely strange, every track has a vocal and that makes a change..' :D This song also reminds me of being a teenager, which is good when you're 30+ :) I agree wi...

Re: in defense of the PSB

I get what you mean here alig.. but remember that music snobbery is the worst from of snobbery! It's even worse than so called 'bad taste'!! :-) I find it annoying when you ask somebody, 'what sort of music do you listen to?' and the answer is always, 'oh i like everything..' :-/ Musical taste says ...

Re: an album about ageing - ELYSIUM

Markus, Deschanel and Radiophonic I'm loving this discussion about Madonna! It's interesting, Elysium seems to be describing the exact experiences of aging that we're talking about - the social isolation, patronising comments, physical changes, etc. and it's as if people want Madonna to just grow ol...

Re: "Elysium" - the first snippets

Maybe you're right Rorie, yh.. I just thought it sounded like a really good pet shop boys album and with them playing the Olympics closing ceremony this might mean a high cart position.. I guess you can never guess what critics will say, but I actually think it's quite brave to release an album whic...

Re: an album about ageing - ELYSIUM

Totally agree with these posts. Obviously haven't heard the album in full, but if a common theme is about ageing then I think this is a great subject matter. It's good because there's nothing worse than an ageing artist trying to recapture they're former glory. Ladyhawke has a great song about this ...

Re: "Elysium" - the first snippets

Finally managed to listen to bits of every track on the new album and it sounds great, very impressive. Reminds me of Fundamental in terms of the moods of the songs.. some great tracks in there. I'm going to predict the unpredictable... The album will go top 3 in the UK.. ;-)

Re: "Elysium"

This sounds like it's going to be a great album.. Really like this title, sounds very different and invisible is an unusual track, almost eerie, which i like.. The video for invisible is also unusal, a bit bizarre but very compelling, again i really like.. I like it when the boys break their own rul...
