Exciting! Given this isn’t particularly evident on the three singles, which tracks exhibit it the most?
Woof.

"Wedding in Berlin" is a very smart song strategically for them...that's a song that wedding DJs all over the world can play at wedding receptions because the beats and bass are so good by Chris for dancing AND those lyrics of Neil's can be celebrated at any wedding reception. Smart.

Really?

There’s not a single chance that will ever be played at my wedding and having DJ’ed at over 100 wedding receptions, would never play such shite

I see where you are coming from...but if you have ever been to a wedding reception where there is nothing but a bunch of stupid people with no taste dancing like stupid idiots...this song will encourage them and since there are so many stupid people on the planet, then strategically, PSB will benefit financially. I'm sure it will be in a movie one day too. Anyway, I don't ever plan on attending another wedding or wedding party in my lifetime ever.

Other than in a full-on dance club setting, people will pretty much only dance to songs they know.

There’s no lyrics in the CD insert! I looked as soon as I hit play, I wanted to read them while I listened. :(

I was saying "wedding in berlin" has a couple really beautiful parts, if they would just get rid of the monotonous synth riff and just made it like the pretty parts all the way thru. you know the part where the synth riff drops out and neil is singing with the beautiful strings. it should have been made more like that, keep the upbeat drums but less a dirgy backing track.

if I get a acapella of it someday it would be fun to do it that way.

So basically, Mendelssohn's "Wedding March''?

No those parts need to go also. I am talking about the 2 parts where the drums cut out and neil is singing with the beautiful synth wave in the background. love those parts of the song
