Re: A new decade a new phase: 20's

I think we can indeed be happy to get two or three more albums. When they announced the trilogy, I kind of suspected the third album to be a farewell. Hope it isn't, of course. But I don't expect a duo as conceptually thinking as the PSB to leave their final word up to chance… So, yeah, the 20s are ...

Re: Reissues project

@billjermaine
I agree with you on the sound of "This Must be the Place…". The extended mix(es) are mixed to sound much cleaner and spacious which in my opinion fits the song better.

Re: Is there a list of Remixes that feature extra lyrics?

West End Girls has even more additional lyrics when you add the original 1984 version, plus some additional words on the "Montreal" mixes here: https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-W ... ease/43772

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Add me to the herd of impulse limited edition buyers. Not so sure this was a good idea now, some 5 minutes later. I like the general idea though.

Re: Strange feeling...

PSB had a fantastic 10 year album run from 1986 on. 1996 was the beginning of a 10 year stretch of deeply flawed albums. 2006 marked an impressive turnaround followed by a bunch of great albums. Well, 2016 brought us Super. I hereby predict, the next masterpiece will appear in 2026. Only eight years...

Re: Reissues project

The new remasters are a quite a bit than the old ones (in my opinion). If you were someone who hadn't bought the 2001 editions because of the bad mastering, I'd tell you, now's the time to get the Further Listening set because these are better. If you own the original 80s and 90s versions plus the 2...

Yeah, Neil did that on purpose to keep the forum alive during a slow news summer. Come on Neil, announce a new album already, and stop this kerfuffle. ;)

Re: 25 years of Can You Forgive Her

Oh, the excitement when it came out. That video! To completely reinvent themselves and still keep or even accentuate the essence of what made them PSB was genius. Instantly makes me want to watch it again. The arrangement has not aged too well, maybe, but still a definite classic. The remixes, oh we...

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

The whole Bilingual era was quite disappointing. They suddenly looked old to me, lacked enthusiasm (Se a vida é seemed a bit forced, I used to think) and Before was just the most monotonous single of their career up to that point. The remixes all sounding the same didn't help. I was more into Britpo...
