Steps - General Discussion + Hard 2 Forget

  1. I love This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, and especially the artwork for that album. I have to say it’s tempting just for the poster…

    Is the megamix made of the original songs or remixes?
     
  4. I just wanna say.... The Slightest Touch (7th Heaven Extended Mix) is FLAWLESS!

    Don’t you dare until 00:01am on Friday!!
     
  6. I want them to play dirty tomorrow - I would absolutely buy a bundle of digital download + CD that shipped tomorrow, if they were bundled with signed prints of Step One/Steptacular/Buzz cover art that would ship in a few weeks… they clearly have the rights to the imagery if they’re doing Step One sweatshirts!

    Neither, it’s sort of a homogeneous beat throughout the whole thing to keep it all at a similar tempo.
     
  8. Nothing like peer pressure for an extra sale!

    It’s a nice little addition to the era, yes.

  13. So what do we think they were shooting/filming today?
    It looks like a new photo shoot but a music video/performance video/s would be an awesome extra treat.
     
  14. Calendar shoot I reckon
     
  15. The acoustics of Take Me For A Ride and The Slightest Touch are really nice. Especially The Slightest Touch, that instrumental break- wow.

    Interesting to hear the Karaokes as Backing Tracks. Lee's backing vocals in The Slightest Touch are actually pretty great.

    I'm not so much of a remix fan but the new one of Take Me For A Ride is Ok.

    Nice addition of the Alternative Something In Your Eyes and Steps Only Heartbeat In This City. I wouldn't mind more of this.

    The megamix is cool, although it would be great to finish off with The Slightest Touch. Glad they included To The Beat Of My Heart, I was worried for a second.

    Not bad, but would loved some more mixes from Part 2 album tracks (maybe) and more visuals.
     
  16. But that's a new sentence.
    "Warm Skies are changing.
    A Hundred Years Of Winter erasing ."

    However I get where they are coming from.

    Just a silly little niggle.
     
  17. Well...

    Suggest otherwise!

    It's not that deep though. I think it's only natural for anyone close to getting a #1 album in the UK to want to go all the way. Both sides are trying things to push them past the finish line first, sales are going up so both bands are winning, as well as the fans that want to purchase the extra stuff. For both bands to be around for so long and to be competing for #1 is an achievement in itself.
     
  18. Yea, but songs are more akin to poetry and can also be a bit more abstract and less linear I think. I mean nobody really stole the heart from anyone's chest and left a stain across the waste land but that's what it says. It's just poetic imagery. A Hundred Years of Winter sort of paints little scenes like that. Sentences don't have to make logical sense and I think it's actually more this.

    "And warm skies are changing a hundred years of winter, erasing
    All the pain in melting, love is returning to me"


    Which makes perfect sense.
     
  19. It's strange because I sort of accepted them not getting #1 with Tears on the Dancefloor (probably just shocked they were even in line for #2) and then with What The Future Holds (apprehensive about how they'd fare in Covid times sales-wise), but for some reason really want them to bag this number one. I think they really want it too, and it'd be great press angle for future appearances and for the 25th. I'd much rather have this, a studio album, go to number one than a future hits collection, as that just seems easier in a way.

    Anyway, I've purchased the new editions and my big takeaways so far are the acoustic versions of Take Me For A Ride and The Slightest Touch, which are both brilliant, but does anyone notice on the latter a bit of a lispy 's' sound in the chorus. Mild, but it's there for me. I also finally enjoy To The Beat of My Heart in acoustic form. I think it was the production, rather than the song, I disliked.

    The megamix is a lot of fun too, love that it's a bit of a disco take on all of the singles together. I think we've done very well out of content. Yes, some live videos would have been nice but I sort of knew that wasn't happening because when asked during the Take Me For a Ride video premiere, Claire said it was something they might film while on tour!

    Anyway I'm sure they're not done milking us yet, we still have tour merch to go, please don't let it carry the imagery of the rebranded "all the hits" vibe. The Future look was so much sexier. Save the nostalgia for next year.

  20. Agreed. I think the words are just in an unusual order (which is indeed common in poetry).

    "Warm skies are changing, a hundred years of winter erasing" = "Warm skies are changing [and are] erasing a hundred years of winter."
