Re: The sound of crashing glass from the Christmas lights is... traumatizing

It is such a stress reliever to bust those lights up - I like to mow them all down in a fast row. I'm sorry they're gone already; was hoping they'd be up at least until New Year's.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I'm really looking forward to getting Hotspot next month. I'm sure we'll get a new round of Neil & Chris treasures. I'm quite liking Heather and Decide (Dreamland, not so much), but I'm wondering if we'll ever again that swooping, lyrical, big-intervals type of melody writing we used to get from PSB...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

A man I know who is homosexual and writes music stuff sometimes temporarily granted me access to a preview stream he’d wrangled because it’s Christmas. In the loveliest possible way, your opening eleven words really made me laugh. Never change, Nicholas. It could actually be the opening line of a P...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

"I'm not sure what point I'm trying to make here. Or even if I have one. Or, if i have one, if it's been made before."

Now those would be great PSB lyrics! ;)

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Come on. This is not the place for politics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk alig's comment was not political. It was just one huge slur on millions of people, not to mention being a pack of lies. Normally I'd let stuff like this go but after last night I think people like him should be sterilis...

Re: Clever lyrics

This:

I'm always hoping you'll be faithful
But you're not, I suppose
We've both given up smoking 'cause it's fatal
So whose matches are those?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thank you, Effen. This has really whetted my appetite for the album release next month. I'm very amused by the rafters/afters rhyme. :D

Guarantee the album will leak in the next week or so
The album is coming out legally next month, man, not January 2021. So why so impatient?

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Just curious: Should this thread's title be changed to "Hotspot," or will that have its own thread once the album is released?

Re: Burning the heather

"I Don't Wanna" will be a Chris specialty: He does a "We All Feel Better in the Dark"-type light rap while Neil sighs out "I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I really don't wanna..." in the chorus.

Re: Hotspot album promo music

Just a thought, couldn’t it be that this is all about trains? Hotspot, those sounds in the teaser, dreamland video...maybe hotspot have been constructed as an underground line, with different stops (songs). That would make a very heterogeneous album. I should be maybe thinking on what to have for l...

Re: Burning the heather

Wonderful! Their best track in years. I may have to revise my recent "Best of the 2010s" for this.
