Invisible is going to "win" in the long run, mark my words. But I don't think there will be more than a hair between them.

Invisible.. Thats pure PSB. Winner, though good, is too cheesy for me.

Drico.
This is what I mean as well when I say I "get inside" Pet Shop Boys songs. I really appreciate, say, Janet Jackson's pop music output. Great sounds, melodies, etc. Maybe she even had some good messages and lyrics, but it's not for a white boy from the midwest. I get "into" Pet Shop Boys songs, and that's the norm. Winner is an outlier because I can't personalise it either. I've calmed way down over it in the last couple days to be honest. I will admit, it felt like the end of the world at first. Drico has stayed level headed for us non-Winnerites.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

I'm not sure it's fair to compare the two as they're very different and the only thing they have in common is that they're on the same album. Winner is not a bad song (the track of a similar name that's out now by Status Quo proves my point) and It's getting depressing to read some comments from posters I really like, saying it's the worst thing the guys have done. I think their disappointment after Invisible is taking over.

I feel the same... especially when I recognize some of them on the comments section of the Winner lyrics video on YouTube. Sometimes I think they should quit the PSB fandom for good, instead of criticizing so harshly a band they (pretend?) used to love.
What remains in time
that didn't fade away?
