Re: Reissues project

Like vinyl a lot but for me it’s total nostalgia. I want the CD too for the best sound quality, and I want to own my music so streaming is not my thing.

The current vinyl hype is just a hipster thing. It’ll pass. In 10 years it’s nostalgia for CDs, mark my words 🙂

Re: Reissues project

Time to replace the stylus maybe? Had similar issues with Kraftwerk's The Mix a few years back, which skipped at several points despite being brand new. Then I replaced the stylus and then it played fine. Most styluses start to give problems after 1000 playing hours (and may damage your records as a...

Stayed in a mountain resort in Austria where they had Did you see me coming? on their 2-hourly playlist.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Today I heard Stupidity being played on Dutch public radio 2 and de Volkskrant newspaper reviewed Rich last Thursday. Nice attention.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

In all, the Agenda EP is a nice surprise. The first 3 songs are a bit plodding though (not a big fan of their mid-tempo work) and while I do not have a problem with their activist lyrics, the literal 'storytelling' aspect of it does not really appeal to me here. I like it more when lyrics are a bit ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Great news indeed, pre-ordered both the 12" and Annually, plus downloaded Stupidity from iTunes
Not great, very Winner-like indeed (a song I do like), but nice surprise 8)

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

Just can't find it on amazon.de or anywhere else outside the UK yet. I hope that it'll be available in some more shops soon, maybe even in my good, old record store just around the corner?! Look at www.jpc.de Ah great, so I can cancel my Amazon UK order if Brexit happens on March 29 as I don’t want...

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

"Last week I heard songs on the radio, why should they be released on CD?" What a weird statement. I am extremely happy that the boys care about physical releases in a time when most artists don't care anymore about video discs, let alone in HD. If you don't want it, don't buy it. Concrete was not r...

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

a bonus feature of PSB live at Rock in Rio, which was filmed on 17 September 2017 at the Brazilian festival
Do we know what this is? Is this a full show/broadcast on video? That is a really great bonus indeed.

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

Great news, not complaining.

I do 4K UHD but any hd release is already more than I hoped for.

Pre-ordered from amazon, 21 pounds for 4 discs is decent too!

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

Lol, good luck with that. Hello... I have managed to locate most things that I am looking for, PSB related or not, on sites not in USA or UK. :roll: I can pretty much guarantee that you will never be able to download a torrent/rip or otherwise of a PSB DVD or VHS release. They just don’t exist. If ...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

Sad to see it's the end of physical releases if even die-hard fans go for downloads. I fully understand why, don't get me wrong, but there is no joy for me in purchasing a download that is also usually overpriced (€0,99 per song?? Come on) or listening to spotify radio as a substitute for a 12" reco...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

I hate apple so would never buy something in their apple-only format. But of course I see the benefits of digital ownership, just make sure you have your NAS RAID mirrored because all hard drives will fail at some point and digital movies are too large to store in the cloud for most (unless you have...

Sorry, but no way I will be paying £20 for a file...
Then I would prefer a Netflix release or the SD DVD.
