I'm guessing Kings Cross is the strongest track by far, but Vocal would get a strong rating? Go West too, but it's maybe worn thin these days? Oh and lets not forget Jealousy - whoa!

Any particular favourites, anyone?
Anybody not saying King's Cross is not a real PSB fan.

And even in more recent albums, I adore You choose, Go West, [...]
I know time files, but I don't really think 1993 - 27 years ago - counts as "recent"... :lol:
Believe me, it's recent.

80s - Why don't we live together? Such a tune & great vocals from Neil. Love the spoken intro..

90s - footsteps - controversial maybe (..!). I've always loved the dance beats on Nightlife & this track is the perfect come down to a night in the city. And the frogs croaking at the end, classic.

00s - You choose.. Another 'come down' song.. Always liked the mood of this song. Guitars are also very lush (Did Johnny Marr play on this?? Not sure..). It's a brilliant closer none the less.

10s - Vocal- total rave tune. Pass the EE's please. PSB classic.

20s....???

They've actually been really good at choosing closers, right back to Please.

The first one I don't rate highly is Saturday Night Forever but I can see why they chose it as the closing track. Footsteps is similar - it makes sense why it's there but it's an average track. I suppose that shows the decline in quality around that time.

Not expecting much from Wedding in Berlin though. It does sound pretty ropey.
