Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

First I must acknowledge Dog’s review and summary, which I agree with 100%! Completely feeling the same things. :clap: I think they have given us a rich album here, one which will bring decades of pleasure, and one which gives them a new seam to mine, that subtly shifts away from the lasers and the...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Well, still not here. Ordered from OS on 12th Dec and received an email from OS on the 24th Jan(at night) saying it had been dispatched, a bit late as i am in the U.K and was expecting it on day of release. How wrong was i. I would have been better buying directly from an external source rather than...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I have listened through twice. Sadly, for me after two great (and I mean in the Alexander sense) reincarnations, this album should have been called "Pedestrian (Back to meh.)" It sounds faxed (yes, remember those) in. The lyrics are poor and as for "Wedding in Berlin" its just embarrassing, when it...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Got my email from DPD late last night to say it had been dispatched, it was ordered on 12th December so i assumed it would have been dispatched a couple of days ago (i'm in UK) but looks like once again the official site is way behind others when it comes to releases and getting them to customers on...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Both those mixes are great, the "Discomiks" one is especially good, it reminds me of In The Night somehow but it's a proper old school mix, i have been crying out for more of these "type" of mix over the past decade...hopefuly this is a sign of things to come in the new decade. Now for Hotspot and :...

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

I can't wait to see this 1970's Disco line dance, it's hilarious that they have decided to have a dance that goes with the song...even funnier that Chris is doing the dance on the video alongside the dancers I hope he dances to it on tour :pray: ,what are we thinking? The Macarena, Steps-Tragedy, Ag...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Monkey Business veers into Chas and Dave or Black Lace territory....and to our non-British readers....I wouldn't even bother researching those acts, you won't thank me for it. Lumping Chas and Dave in with Black Lace is grossly unfair. The former’s music may not be to your taste, but they were huge...
