Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Unless they are holding tickets back for later release, sales appear to be impressive, and even more so considering the ticket prices. A few days on sale and most venues are 90%+ sold. That should mean the shows sell out (or near to it) by the time the shows actually come around. This is quite the ...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Greetings, Neil and Chris are making the albums they want to make. Sure, but that doesn't mean that we have to pretend they haven't entered a second career nadir. ...the point being that staying with the same producer isn't necessarily a bad thing. Agreed, but if the results are sub-par, you've got...

Re: [Setlist] PSB at Venue 1 & Hyde Park (14./15. Sep 19)

It was a brilliant show - especially the atmosphere and complete lack of smartphones. Neil also seemed very relaxed on stage and was happily (and funnily) joking when he forgot the lyrics at certain points. Everyone seemed to have a great time, N&C included. Imagine how incredible it would be to hav...

Re: 2 albums?

I’d say Discography too, but it’s missing the Very singles (for obvious reasons). I don’t think any single after the Very area can be properly labeled a hit. Se a vida e, New York city boy, and Love etc were all hits in various territories, some quite big hits (like New York city boy in Mexico and ...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Honestly, these are pretty standard prices for top-tier concerts in 2019.

Re: September single...???

it's just the artwork for a non-physical single, it's perfectly adequate and looks rather nice

there are things that artists should invest lots of time and money in - non-physical single release artwork is not one of them

Re: Strategy

honestly i don't think this is part of some grand strategic plan - it's a smash and grab on the wallets of causal fans / radio 2 listeners in the UK it's pretty simple: the Radio 2 show has given them massive amounts of national exposure in the UK, and the release of Dreamland + announcement of the ...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

over 60% rate the track a 7 or above
just 12% rate the track a 4 or below

not that you would know it from the comments

I guess it is true that the whiners are simply more vocal

Re: September single...???

"production is weak"... do you know what production is?

I think you mean "the sound is not to my taste" - this song has been very strongly produced

Re: September single...???

I just played this again … and as soon as it finished, I heard it start up again on the radio of a builder across the street. That’s unusual. They’ve got something right about this release… A friend (non-PSB fan) just messaged me to ask if i'd heard the 'amazing new PSB song' - which has never happ...

Electric was brilliantly cohesive, critically acclaimed, and completely works as a whole.
100% agree. There are many things you can label Electric - 'all over the place' is not one of them. It's perhaps their most cohesive album yet.
