Re: If Elysium is like Behaviour and Electric is like Very..

Not that I take this thought too seriously, but it's fun to think about... If Elysium is like Behaviour And Electric is like Very Then ....... will be like Bilingual...? I know Electric is been compared more to Introspective and Relentless, but I hear a lot of Very influences. I'd be extremely happ...

Re: Huffington Post: The Only Duo That Survived

I'm inspired to watch all of the videos again - is BB the only one in which N&C interact? How about "I'm With Stupid" when they glance at each other in their captive state? Time for some research! :lol:

Re: Rating: "The last to die"

4/10. The only clunker on the album. Dull tune coupled with Springsteen's "let me correct your thinking because I'm so much more wise than you" lyrics. Shut up, you relic.

Re: Rating: "Electric"

I bought the CD today and have listened to it twice. A wonderful bone shaker, brain boiler and heart squeezer! My thanks to Neil, Chris and Stuart Price. It's a fantastic ride, except for that bump in the road called "The Last to Die." When I get a PSB album, I want to hear new PSB tunes, ...

Yikes! And what does Example do during the other six days of the week? Bah-boom.

Re: 10 days to go poll

2 with a couple from 4. But absolutely nothing else until I get my hands on the CD on the 16th.

Re: Which PSB song have you recently discovered or rediscove

Just yesterday I listened to the "So Hard" CD single complete for only my second time after finding a used copy last year. The 7 and a half minute long "So Hard (dub)" really stood out - it's the only track of the 5 that is not on an album or a Further Listening edition, so it so...

Re: Why we will never see a top 40 for PSB again...

I'm not a stockholder in PSB's record company. I don't care one way or the other if their recordings ride high on the charts. All I want is just some more good grooves from N&C.

Re: The Morally Virtuous Not Listening To Snippets Club

And not only that, I also want to avoid reviews (good or bad) of the tracks. So I might suspend my daily viewing of this board, so I can be able to really listen to Electric with totally fresh ears.

Talk about virtuous! This is practically saintly! :wink:

Re: The Morally Virtuous Not Listening To Snippets Club

I'm a grown-up. I can wait for two more months (even though I'm really eager to hear Electric .) It still doesn't feel like the " Elysium era" has ended yet, so it's not as though it's been a huge amount of time since their last studio album. I listened to "Axis" to whet my appet...

Re: Q&A with Neil and Chris @ Stereogum

Neil: … I think it must be dance music’s biggest moment in America since disco. Chris: Until America turns again, like it usually does. Neil: It will. It’s only a matter of time until all the dance music gets run over again by a bunch of ghastly rock bands. There’ll be another grunge. Chris: It can ...
