The fact that so many PSB fans don‘t appreciate this song makes it their best single choice in years! :)

EDIT: You may delete this – where is the point in posting anything on here when you have to wait days for it to be approved? I‘d understand this for the first 5 or so postings, but like this it‘s just ridiculous!

That artwork is horrendous, it doesn't make you wanto instantly put your hand in your pocket does it. Probably the worst theyve done to be honest.

    Couldn't stay away from the Farrow minimalism forever.

    I don't believe it's Farrow design. It's the same idea s Say it me and it looks not really fresh.

    Say it to me was a Farrow design, why can’t this be?

    It sort of fits into this album’s theme… the other sleeves look like mobile phone snaps, and this talks of mobile phone use (obvs)…

    It is a return to a “steaming first” sleeve though, like all of the Super sleeves… will work so well as a tiny thumbnail… not very exciting for 12” buyers though.

    I think it's perfect for the song - a young man waiting for that invite, only to refuse it. Is there a more perfect reduction of the song's theme than a single text on a phone screen?

    I'll try summon up some energy to pre-order this record. I feel quite reluctant to it.

    The artwork belongs to the Super era which is weird.

    Still, ordered as it's all about the B-side.

    I think the for and against votes for the artwork are equally valid.

    Initially I was disappointed with it and immediately thought of the Super artwork but it does speak to the tracks theme quite well. If the song had been on Super to start with itd be the perfect fit.

    Sadly though I mostly agree that something else might have been more suitable in the Hotspot era.

    I think the art and the music are equally matched.
    I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

    The image looks like a simple cardsleeve. I hope it will be gatefold! Anyway nice tracklist, and horrible artwork.
