That has to have the ‘biggest’ ending of any PSB track, no?
Yeah, right? They didn't do anything quite like this again. That repeated, almost chant-like chorus/coda thing. Not too many "oh yeah"s in the PSB catalogue either. I used to really, really love this one. Listened to again a few times today thanks to this thread. The mix is kinda muddy and there's just too much going on. But still a great track.

I'll take that over the dreadful and dire E Smoove remix of Liberation.

Well, I happen to thin Relentless is exceptionally good. It's bound to sound dated. It's 27 years old. Its dance music. But I can confidently confirm it was played on "The Monster" ride on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, where Chris Lowe used to work, all throughout summer 1994, as My friend and I who had been together at Uni in London, moved back to start work and during the summer had summer jobs, as is often the case in Blackpool. Chris worked on the Big Wheel, which is no longer there but it felt like a full circle, especially after three years of clubbing in London's most ahem, underground nightclubs. Some of which, like Chemistry at Soundshaft (behind Heaven) we would see Mr Tennant with a glass of champagne on the gantry..... Of course years later we also saw Chris at the Flamingo in Blackpool too. Relentless was certainly the way forward at the time. They would have been the Prodigy by now.

I cannot imagina how one (I mean an electronic music or PSB fan ) finds Relentless "not very good". Forever in Love, and the hidden, criminally underrated and overlooked masterpiece One Thing Leads to Another with all its phony "ohh yeah"s, are enough to fall in love with that beauty.

I will never ever forgive PSB for tucking that brilliance into the end of a very very limited (I do not like the word "obscure") album instead of letting the world know about it...

The general consensus here is that Relentless is still very good.

So shouldn't we change the title of this thread?
Sorry telys
