the other stuff rated by some going on at the time #2

many of the smartest pop minds of our time would disagree, vehemently....  probably scornfully

but the truth is I have never really seen it / heard it / felt it with the PSB...

 "West End Girls", very nice, yes (what's it about though? I don't really care actually)...

Introspective, I liked a bit, for half-a minute...

 "Being Boring", bit boring

Overall, as sound it seems thin, as expression it feels mild...   the other elements (lyrics, image, framing, interview) are clever (-clever)

pop without the !POP!

for his comments about Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" ("sounds more like a rave record than rock") and for inventing the concept "imperial phase", Neil T deserves a knighthood, or at least a CBE

but otherwise
