Hmm...interesting. I think Miracles is one of the best PSB tracks
ever...which is why I think I needed such a "strong" mix. I can
understand the lyric thing--but all too often my favorite PSB
"progressive" mixes (like the TE mix of Somewhere) have too FEW lyrics
and people don't even realize that the track is by PSB. Don't get me
wrong, I love all those tracks, but I think that the Eric Prydz mix
gives Miracles a darker, driving feel and when played out, EVERYONE can
hear it's the Pet Shop Boys!
> Flamboyant: B-side at best. A single? WTF?
Yep--apparently Neil is committed to the single and stated on PSB
online that Tomcraft has done a mix. Not sure how I feel about
Tomcraft. Some stuff is pretty cool, but his most recent mix of Dave
Gahan's "Bottle Living" seemed to lack something. It will be
interesting to see what he does with Flamboyant.

I think their mix of LCQ is good, but it could have been better. First
off I think it should have been longer. I also think they should have
used all the lyrics...they certainly have "room" in the song to do so.
Still very cool though.
