Do you like or hate metamorphosis and electricity?

Metamorphosis, I do like this catchy tune. Excellent lyrics. Though Id ask because I hear some nay-sayers, I cant see why its unappreciated. Its more of underrated.

Electricity - Different, i will listen to it. Why dont you like this tune?

I like them both. I liked Metamorphosis more back in 96 but these days I think Electricity is better.

I read that Neil said they wanted to do Metamorphosis slower, but that would drag the song down, I am glad the producer convinced Neil to sing fast. Which almost killed him ;)

Metamorphosis is awful; it was the moment that I realised PSB were mortal after all. It's such a forced song - "I'M GAY DON'T YOU KNOW? AND IF YOU DON'T I'M GOING TO DO THE GAYEST RAP EVER!"

It was the precursor of other crap out-and-proud songs like New York city boy and In denial.

Metamorphosis is fab song. Especially when Chris speaks on it. :lol:
Electricity.... hmm. Not so fond of the song. But it´s ok. Maybe I should listen to it more often, then I might start to like it more. I have to drive a car for over an hour today. Maybe I´ll take my Bilingual-tape with me.

I like songs like "Electricity" which, as PSB themselves say, break their own rules. I like them to experiment from time to time. BTW... Am I the only one who likes "The sound of the atom splitting"???

no I like TSOTAS, very underated imho. Electricity and Metamorphosis are very good as well, although Electricity has dated better
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

For me nothing... Only that for the majority is regarded as one of the most hated PSB tracks... :?

I adore "The Sound Of The Atom Splitting".

I like "Metamorphosis" a lot more than "Electricity". It really depends on what mood I'm in. There've been times where I've listened to "Electricity" over and over again.

Electricity is great: delightfully louche and original in conception.

Metamorphosis was the song that made me think I preferred them in the closet...

I've always loved Electricity. Its nearly ten years old and still sounds fresh compared to most of their mid-nineties stuff.

I'm one of the few who believe it would have made a good single - more so than Single-Bilingual.

Metamorphosis I can take or leave. Its a little cheesy.
