As I suppose this is what here is for.

What say ye on the new track?

I'm loving it and it augers well for Paul's new project.

Lol. See my other post. It is just long enough to listen to completely on the way to work. Kids will be indoctrinated before too long!

I'm pleased and a bit relieved that he's sticking to what he does best - i.e. Orbital type electronica. His last solo album was great and I did see him live, but, for me, he strayed a bit to far into the acoustic world...
Slugs! HE created slugs! They can't hear. They can't speak. They can't operate machinery. Are we not in the hands of a lunatic?

Yeah liking the track, not too sure about the video though lol.

Phil should really release those Orbital remixes he has done! On the whole split thing from the few things I have read it would it be fair to say this was more Pauls decision than Phils? Remember Phil saying that the 25th boxset and tour was on the cards but Paul wasnt keen to do it???

I would have to agree with most of this. Funnily enough, the tracks I enjoyed the most from his live show were the versions of the old stuff, The Box being a particular favourite

Not too keen on the new stuff I'm afraid. Hoping the rest of the album will be better. Also, heard he's had to cancel the May tour. I think he should have kept the name Orbital (with Phil's permission). Would have got more of the attention he deserves. It's been done before, Leftfield, LFO....

Only had a couple of listens so far. Really loving Cemetery, also liking The Past Now and Broken Up.

The others I'm struggling a bit with - which is something I'm not used to. I usually like most of Paul's stuff straight away. Hopefully after a few more listens I'll get in to some more of the tracks, but a lot of them aren't really grabbing me yet.

This is actually a really good album. Got the deluxe version yesterday. The guest vocals are all good, but it's the instrumental versions which wins it over for me. Track called "Nearly There" is fantastic!!!! Other highlights for me are The Clock (really grown on me now) Broken Up, Cemetery and the bonus track Risky. Overall, great album.

Still waiting for mine. It's been so long since I ordered it I've forgotten what version I actually paid for.
