Oh, the Dictator Decides is based on a track by Vivaldi btw.[/quote]

Yes it's [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6gKE6vkmU0]Filiae Maestae Jerusalem Rv. 638[/URL].
You can recall it from the violin part.

[quote="Dr_Jones"]Super is produced by Stuart Price, and is the 2nd of 3 albums they're going to make with him.
Super is not them trying to be Price, it's Price producing their songs for a 2nd time.[/quote]

It really shows :nod:




[quote="Dr_Jones"]

This is the most absurd thing I've read regarding PSB.

Also, this is the 2nd most absurd thing I've heard.[/quote]

Now these are absurd :punch: :wink:

Fan of PSB since (EEB)WEG.
Domino Dancing one the most memorable synth hooks. Love Comes Quickly for me the most poignant synth pop song.

Alan Turing totally dig it.
PSB performing Royal Opera House upon inivitation.
Definitely worth getting tickets.

Even a big fan of PSB will take the biggest s**t as a masterpiece. They don't see that they are human like you and me and can make (big) mistakes! Nobody is perfect. :wink:

Jean-Michel Jarre have big masters**t too! I don't like so much the 2001-2007 era (Sessions 2000 until Téo & Téa) of him. :wink:

Wow this album!
Totally blown away!
I think is even better than Electric.
It's like they have more "experience" making this kind of music.
Electric had three of four numbers still on my playing list.
Actually this has everything on my list!

The Dictator Decides is a damn good song.

I'm actually rather pleasantly surprised that PSB still remembers Brick England. Neat video, too.

Looks very much like we're getting "Further Listening" style special releases. ;)

[quote]It is with great regret that Pet Shop Boys have to announce the cancellation of their re-scheduled L'Olympia show on June 5th 2017 because it has been brought to our attention that, under French law, certain integral parts of the show production, in particular the lasers, cannot be used indoors. France is the only country in the world that has this law and no other shows on the SUPER world tour are affected. Attempts to find a suitable outdoor venue in Paris have been fruitless.[/quote]

Uh... what? Does PSB really use way more lasers than JMJ?

Very ridiculous explanation from Neil and Chris. Jarre use a lot of lasers too and never got problems with that in France. :roll: :wink:

Continuing the Further Listening series from 2001.

Even though a lot of those tracks have been easily available in the Format compilation album a few years back, there's still enough new stuff to keep me interested. Of course, I already own the 2001 Further Listening editions. ;)

[i]That's[/i] how you make a release, Sony. Kraftwerk and PSB are getting it done right.

Not sure how much of the Jarre re-releases is on Sony and how much on Jarre himself. But the lack of even a single bonus track on his re-releases is inexcusable. Well on top of the terrible remastering of course. Gotta give other artists such as PSB, Kraftwerk, Vangelis and Mike Oldfield a round of applause for that.

Quite some unreleased songs and demos this time. And also some things I've been looking for for ages (Don't Know What You Want extended mix!!!)

Looking forward to the Yes tracklists too. Let's hope that has the 4 "My Dad's A Birdman" songs they composed for a child's play.

PSB will release a 4 track EP in april, called "Agenda".
The track "Give stupidity a chance" now has a lyrics video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9jEuHbB0GQ

A hilarious and cynical view on todays (fact-free) politics and the "science is just an opinion" movement.

Tracklisting is:

Give Stupidity A Chance
On Social Media
What Are We Going To Do About The Rich?
The Forgotten Child

Produced by PSB and Tim Powell (of Xenomania, who also did Yes)

On Social Media has a fairly brilliant lyrics video

The last track from the Agenda EP: The Forgotten Child.
A beautiful, melancholic track. Probably my favorite from this EP

I like it when they make songs in the vein of Integral 8)

Blimey, the Inner Sanctum Blu-Ray (Rock in Rio included) is a treat.

Can't see JMJ ever making a release like this (eternal complaint, I know). :P

The sound and image quality is amazing. Crisp sharp imaging. And as a bonus an extra concert, a DVD and the audio on CD. Value for money
