Decide is a good b side but overrated. I don't put it in the same league as integral. You have to wait for the very end to hear a few seconds of the price orchestra sound. I much prefer Burning the heather. The Cya mix is basic.
I'm not that impressed by the b-sides but Hotspot will be awesome.
It´s not defnetely on the same league with Integral!
On Decide you have constant surprises...when the track is finalized, you realise that you had no idea about how it will be going to end during the first half of the song. The climax is unexpected, but natural in the same way, and new layerrs of music, vocals and arrangements appears all the time until the magnific end. Constantly changing firecrackers.
On Integral, all the elements of the song are exposed since the first 15 seconds...and nothing new happens all through the song. There are no surprise, no in-crescendo... It ends exactly how you supposed it will after the first verse. A unique explosion...and the echo.
They can´t be more diifferent...

For crying out loud! They probably wrote the song before the Brexit. Stop politicising a simple love song. The lyrics don't even make sense from a Brexit perspective. t's more likely the song is about Chris and Neil breaking up soon after they'd met the first time. Hence the duet.

Integral builds up all along to a tremendous climax. It's epic, every verse is more powerful than the previous one. Decide goes nowhere, with just some sounds stacked up in the second half.

Why thank you.
You seriously believe it's out of the question that they used to date? Just because they denied it?

It's not out of the question that you are a furry. That doesn't justify the assumption that you are, without evidence to support the claim.

The probability that alig is anything other than a middle-aged white male is slim.

There's as much chance of that as there is of Brexit making us £350 million per week richer.

If people believe a love song is about Brexit rather than a broken relationship, my assumption that Neil and Chris are singing a DUET about their relationship is far-fetched? You crack me up, lads.

The additional vocals that people were asking about. To me it sounds like.

Live together
Last forever

Been playing this at least a couple of times a day since release. Essential listening - still!
Happy new year all by the way.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Same here.
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.
