    I know this has been going on for a while now, but thank goodness he ditched those awful "straight-acting" (:zombie:) clothes they used to force him (EDIT: sorry, THEM) into

    QUEER UP! :disco:

    I wish they had opted for a belt, though.

    I am DEVASTATED to learn all traces of Diva Boy's 'Bad Day All Week' video have been removed from the internet. :(

    the vocal is questionable in places but I like To Die For quit a bit. If we must have the obligatory ballad I'll take this.

    I'm just getting round to listening to this now. I think it's brilliant.

    I think their voice is so much easier to digest when they aren’t in full warble mode.

    Sorry but they're definitely growing on me! After the basic ballad shit of their first album and the awful Bond track, I am really into this image overhaul and the new material is good. I really enjoyed Dancing Wiv A STRAGAH and, even more so, How Do You Sleep

    How Do You Sleep? is so good. Looking forward to more MAX (Martin) tracks.

    Well, I hope you like Demi Lovato cos the next single features her, is coming pre-album (video shot already), and is again written/produced by Ilya and Savan Kotecha. There will be one more track from those sessions on the album (Max Martin himself isn't involved at all in this project).

    There will also be a third track from the Stargate sessions (DWAS/To Die For).

    ah, Wikipedia come through! I could've sworn I'd read it was just from the usual Ilya/Kotecha team. Thanks for correcting my KNOWLEDGE GAP

    here's a poppers o' clock piano house remix of To Die For which certainly does the trick :disco:

    I’m not sure it warrants a whole new thread, but it seems like they’ve killed off To Die For given the circumstances and have moved on to a new one with Demi Lovato:

    everything about this being and its multiple personalities is unbearable.

    I did see that they're changing the title of the album which feels like a good move. If they change it to "To Live For", I'll go rouund there myself and give them a bloody good talking to...

    They've definitely made some strides, but I don't like this new one much at all. The chorus is straight out of inspirational modern musical hell.
