Disco 2

Disco 2 shouldnt even be on the list

I know its an official album but little has to do with the Boys.

They usually had contracts per album released so in order to achieve the 5 album releases and get a new sustantial contract they often release this in between albums, in this case the megamix was the major fail they ever released, and I know there is a big chance they didnt even agreed to it.
I bought my copy when it was released and returned the next day.
It is unlistenable. And if the Boys ever go clean about their worst mistake as a release album I highly doubt it is another one than the infamous Disco 2.

RE: Disco 2

If nothing else, I do like the album cover. But I tend to agree, especially in terms of calculations. For example, if the scores for all PSB albums are averaged out, I really don't think Disco 2 should be weighted in the same way. Aside from a few songs, I feel the same way about the less-than-stellar Disco 3.

Do you really think PSB would release an album just to fulfill a contract? Do you really think that's why they put out Disco 2? Nonsense!

RE: Disco 2

Disco 3 is great: Somebody Else's Business, If Looks Could Kill, London Piano Version, Try It I'm In Love With A Married Man, Positive Roll Model, Time On My Hands are great.

Disco 2 is their worst album. And the funny thing is that all the songs which appear on it have wonderful remixes on 12" singles and CD-singles, but they chose the worst bits and versions... except for the remix of LIBERATION by E-Smoove which is a very good HOUSE song (typical of the era). In reality they transformed it into a new song : the melody has absolutely nothing in common with the VERY original version.

RE: Disco 2

Sorry for the Disco 3 dis. :/ I'm glad so many people love it. I can't get in to it beyond "Try It" and "London" piano mix. I really like seeing so many different views here.

Now, what of Disco 4?

What would you like for Disco 5?

RE: Disco 2

Disco 5 should be a compilation of PSB remixes of the singles from Electric and Super except Twenty-something which is too weak IMHO. The deep dub mix of The pop kids would fit perfectly.
