Now that said I am a woman that is 41 that has been listening to the PSB since the early 90s. I used to love them. And they even had a couple hits since the 90s that were good, not great but good. But they are getting so tired and old. Their 2012 CD Elysium is the most tedious zombie music I've ever heard in my entire life. Now that said I don't mind relaxing easy music but this just has nothing going for it. I mean come on anyone with a Casio Keyboard synthesizer and a boring tone voice can make a CD just like the PSB. It's just hypno tech music the same kind you can download off the internet set to the vocals of someone who just sounds old and tired. I loved their early 90s stuff and even their very old 1980s stuff. They actually seemed to care what they sounded like but now they seem to be cranking out this boring music. Anyone can create that same crap if they just set their Yamaha Keyboard DEMO key to auto and take a few oxycodons and drone out real cliche' lyrics like "I'm going away.. laaa laaa laaa, look at the sun.... laaa laaaa. Empty boxes and drawing lines.... laaaarrrr larrrrr larrrr... I changed my depends diaper today.... laaaaaaaaaa laaaa Fire and ice and other cliche used up lyrics....... laaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" and pooof there it is. You've made yourself a PSB CD.

Perhaps they‘ve become creatively bankrupt. They certainly sound as though they‘ve taken a leaf from contemporary musicians‘ book by adopting the lethargic, derivative approach to their craft. Back in the 1980‘s they seemed to work towards maintaining a sound that ensured they stood out. Could be they just want to make some extra money.
