That book is simply brilliant. Best NO book by a long way. I urge people who haven't got it to try and source a copy (all long sold out sadly, but they end up on eBay every now and again).

I echo the sentiments of people here and on the blog. What a wonderful project, Dennis. Excellent, insightful reviews and some great comments from the faithful.

As to the way forward, I'm hoping that you do reviews for 'Homage' and 'Are You Ready...?' too, as these are now officially released songs. Then, fingers crossed, we get a 'new' track or two on the PCL box set (and subsequent sets).

Then, maybe, some back-tracking to the Joy Division tracks, possibly?

That would be great.

Thanks to all of you for the ongoing feedback & personal insights. The stats on this thread are very humbling.

Yes I will be handling a few final outliers and writing up a big essay on the meaning of it all. With graphs.

Would you lot like it all in book form?

It sounds very final, and quite honestly that might be for the best. Could they top it?
You will be proud to know that this has inspired me to write a critique of every Spice Girls song, 'Old Spice', with my free hand. It's long and hard, but I'll pull it off.
Is Stumm a core trasck, or are we just grateful for anything now? I could argue that Sister Ray is a core track. Or I could shut the fuck up.

I like Superheated.Always been a fan of the song.Great vocals and lyrics by Bernard.Really like the synths, melodies and the chimes.Oh and also that raw sounding synth around the 2 minute to 2.10 mark.Don't even mind fog 'orn Flowers on this song either.Just a great pop song.The synths are celebratory yet nostalgic.Was surprised it wasn't released as a fourth and final single from the album.

Thanks for all your work over the last few years, Dennis.An incredible job.You expressed in words infinitely better than i ever could of about so many of my thoughts and feelings and about many many songs.How on earth did you find the time though?

Re: Sister Ray, I've not included it for 2 reasons; both pedantic.
1) I think of it more as a cover by Joy Division and 2) all recordings of it are live ones only. I've limited my reviews to material recorded in a studio and released officially. Otherwise there'd be a few more to include as discussed here.

However, if you really insist...



When do we get to see yr Spice Girls blog?

Sister Ray is a bit of a free for all.
My Spice Girls blog is in my mind. Thoughts are becoming clearer.

It's not pedantic IMHO, it was meant to be about NO's music (wasn't it?), not live cover versions. If you're going to add extra bits I think maybe they need to be on a separate page/section.

I loved it when the Barnster introduced it as An Old Joy Division Song. Twot.

People say, Were you sad when Mel C got married? I said, No. Because it made little difference to the chances of me and Mel ever etc. Yes, one good-looking, multimillionaire, commercially and critically admired international megastar; one strikingly unattractive, sad lonely pathetic, humourless stylelss soulless, bespectacled balding overweight, socially inept icompetent impotent, foul-mouthed, cynical, geeky nerdy turdy, moaning-groaning-griping-whingeing-whining, fashion-unconscious, stinky-armpitty, alcoholic wankoholic spunkaholic total and utter fucking wanker who never achieved anything except a degree in Latin, LATIN ffs, even I think it's about as useful as a wank mag at a feminist convention, an infantile pitiable obsession with officially the most overpaid undertalented girl group ever that went out of fashion 20 years ago and even then they were fucking shit and called the Spice Girls, and let's not forget only one friend and that's only on Facebook and it's next door's Labrador and it's only using you for food and still won't shag you? No, Melanie's wedding ain't gonna change the odds much.

There are some oddities left, like When I'm With You or Anarchy in the UK, but they're off limits.
