Ace Of Base - Happy Nation
Finally, after 200+ episode celebrating iconic pop releases, we're going track by track through an Ace Of Base album. And what an album! Now do keep up, as this episode is all about Happy Nation - but not the original version of the album, this is the U.S. version, which is very similar to their debut American album, The Sign. Got it? You will. As always do let us know your thoughts on the album and the episode @trackbytrackuk
Glastonbury is back, and not only will we be there but we're sure many of you will be too, and enjoying the experience from home as well. Join us for this special episode where we preview some of our most anticipated acts, share who from our TBT archives will be playing, and speculate wildly about who else might be there. Enjoy!

Pet Shop Boys - Actually
It's our 200th album episode! So of course it's all about Pet Shop Boys, and this time we're going track by track through their second album, Actually. To help us celebrate we're joined by some of our listeners to share their memories of the band and the album, but what are yours? As always let us know on the socials @trackbytrackuk
Erasure - ABBA-esque (with Andy Bell)
Just days after ABBA Voyage opened its doors to the public, we're celebrating an ABBA project that, at the time, was one of the first to bring the iconic Swedish four-piece back to the public conscious following their split in the early 80s. Released 30 years ago this week, ABBA-esque saw Erasure, one of the most popular acts of the time, put their spin on four ABBA classics. The EP was a huge success, staying at the top of the UK charts for five weeks.
We're joined by Andy Bell to discuss the EP, his memories of ABBA, Voyage, Björn Again's Erasure-ish release, and more.

Track by Track
Just wanted to say how much I love this podcast (I don’t do really long podcast episodes very often as well, which is an added bonus) and how it mostly talks about the kind of pop albums that most music critics don’t tend to talk about. One episode I listened to recently for the very first time was the one on the 44th Now album, alongside Rob from Music Activism. Loved how knowledgeable Rob was, reminding me of the odd thing or two I remember hearing when I listened to the charts at the time. On that note, if you guys made more episodes on other previous Now albums, providing your thoughts on surely plenty more forgotten gems that have occurred since, I’d be sure to listen in some time. I’ve listened to plenty of other of other episodes as well on the other hand, and will continue to do so, provided there’s bound to be some nostalgic recollection(s) discussed. Keep them coming, Dan and Will!
Thoroughly enjoyed the latest episode on my favourite band The Human League’s Dare.Great to hear someone else’s view of one of the most iconic albums ever made.Made me smile and laugh in equal measure.Keep up the great work lads.Love to hear your take on Crash probably one of the bands most controversial releases amongst fans and a personal favourite.
Track by track is amazing funny and manages to read my mind
So I’ve been listening to 7 club for 2 weeks now and what should TBT be reviewing this week but the amazing 7 themselves. Mind readers? or perhaps I just have the same camp pop tastes as them! This podcast is for anyone who likes their music (on the cheesy side), doesn’t take themselves too seriously and loves an ‘almighty remix!’. Good job guys keep up the good work xx
