Nach 2 jähriger Pause zurück in den Charts. Aber der Song überzeugt mich nicht
****
...mich auch nicht...
Last edited: 13.07.2007 13:04
****
knapp ok
****
WIRKLICH NIX BESONDERES ABER OK, WENN MAN DEN TRACK NICHT ZU OFT HÖREN MUSS
*****
Kleiner, einschmeichelnder Track, gewiss kein grosser Wurf. In den Charts immerhin Top Ten in UK (# 7).

Mittlerweile die 5, wenn die Boys mal irgendwann mal einen sexy Track abgeliefert haben, dann hier! Klasse!

Warum haben sie den eigentlich vor "Se A Vida É" zuerst genommen?! Wird mir immer ein Rätsel bleiben.
Für die PSB wirklich nur Mittelmass.
*****
Kein Highlight auf Bilingual und eine der bescheidensten PSB-Singles überhaupt. Da hätte es auf dem Album hervorragende Alternativen gegeben für eine Auskopplung. Und dennoch ok.

Der [Danny Tenaglia Classic Paradise] kann als gute Alternative gelten. (03/08/10)
Last edited: 18.10.2012 10:38

ok
****
Passable Nummer...mehr auch nicht...können es besser
****
Einer der schlechteren Songs von meiner Lieblingsgruppe.
******
War damals mein Lieblings-Song im Jahre 1996.
Davon gibt's auch unzählig gute House-Versionen.

***
Für Pet Shop Boys-Verhältnisse ziemlich schwach. Schwacher Gesang, gefällt mir nicht...
***
Ganz knappe Drei. #7 in GB, #38 in A und #45 in D.
**
Ähhhh, ja!
Was mir am allerwichtigsten ist, fehlt hier - und das ist ne ordentliche Melodie! Kann keine 3 mehr geben!
***
der ist wirklich nicht gut...
*****
Wichtiger Song in einer wichtigen Zeit für mich.
*****
Guter Titel.
****
als single so na ja... überzeugt mich erst als extended dancemix und vor allem als underground mix! - für die single 2*, die dancemixe 6* ergibt....

Sorry Jungs aber das gefällt mir nicht, die Stimme ist zu schwach und die Melodie will auch nicht wirklich vorhanden.
**
schwach
**
kläglich
***
clubsounds vom duo..
****
Dieser housige Sound gefällt mir. Der Gesang nicht besonders. Aber der Refrain hat noch was.
****
▒ Nette ø plaat van de "Pet Shop Boys" uit eind april 1996 !!! Was één van de platen van het duo dat in de NL Tip 30 bleef steken (# 2 was het hoogste) !!! Toch na 12½ jaar nog altijd goed voor 4 sterren ☺!!!
****
Buena.
***
Nur noch ein Abklatsch vergangener Zeiten.....

....grosszügig aufgerundete 3.
****
recht ok....erinnert etwas an george michael
****
Durchschnittlicher PSB Song
****
alles gesagt
****
Nichts aufregendes aber ok.

CDN: #79, 1996
USA: #107, 1996

Nicht gerade weltbewegend wie das Meiste von den PSB nach 1990.
****
In mei 1996 was dit de 1e single van het album "Bilingual". Ik vond dit een nette plaat, bleef echter via 25-15-7-5 steken in de toenmalige Mega tip 30. Jammer!!!
***
Before what? Unwichtiger PSB-Song.
*****
Fluffiger House-Track mit tollen Remixes.
***
Albumfüller
**
Poor!
***
mittelprächtiger Chillout-House-Track – 3.5 (abgerundet)...
***
Sie können es besser.
***
Average.
***
das ist schrecklich und als erste Single völlig unpassend

ist damals an mir total vorübergegangen , da der song weder auf MTV noch auf VIVA gespiet wurde
Last edited: 30.12.2017 12:49

Gefällt mir auch heute noch sehr gut.
****
Kein Song der in Erinnerung geblieben ist.

Schade, das gute Niveau was sie mit dem Very Album erreicht hatten, konnten die Pet Shop Boys leider nicht halten. Before ist eine ziemlich uninspirierte Nummer.
**
on of the crap-songs
*****
Unverkennbar - nur die beiden Briten kriegen solche Songs so professionell auf die Reihe. Großes Handwerk aus dem Jahr 1996.
***
Schwach.
**
ungewohnt schlecht
******
Hmmm, wird nicht so hoch bewertet.... In meinen persönlichen PSB Top10, super.
****
o.k.
****
gut
***
Der Rhythmus ist geil, der Gesang zerstörts.
***
Überzeugt mich nicht!
***
Eine irrelevante Angelegenheit hier.

Last edited: 14.12.2015 14:20

...mässig gelungen, abgerundete drei...
**
Eine der langweiligsten Singles der Pet Shop Boys ever. Einzig die beiden 12 Inch Vinyl-Veröffentlichungen mit dem legendären Penis Cover Artwork rechtfertig die Existenz dieses Songs ausserhalb eines Albums.
***
Before or after ... they were often being boring.
****

Knappe 4 von mir.
*****
Klar hatten sie mindestens 30 geilere Songs, aber dennoch finde ich den Song hier insgesamt zu schlecht bewertet - von mir gibt's eine knappe 5!

Anfang Mai '96 war diese Single eine #15 in Italien!
***
Naja... schwache Vorstellung. Auf Nimmerwiedersehen.
