I have followed pet shop boys from 1985 on. And very hardcore until about 1999. And yes like most long time fans will agree, they lost the magic by the end of the Very album. There have been about 2-3 good songs on each album and Yes had me the most excited for their album in over. A decade when that came out. The melody on Leaving was played the most times in a row for a psb in almost 2 decades as well. I chalk it up to a few things. First analog versus digital. My biggest gripe. When they turned to mostly digital around the turn of the century a lot of charm was taken from them. Then the tempos on some tracks were questionable. Neil ' voice got older. Trying to stay relevant to new dance trends will alienate older fans. Heard that Cher auto tone version of home and dry?? Or whatever song that was. Eeks. With all the pet shop boys stood for paving their own way, they should know that the old is the new new. It's been like that for over a decade now. Analog sounds are in. How could a band who had their roots in acid house, new York club scene and disco miss this? Chris...got get your Fairlight and Emulator 2 and get back to the roots of your sound. Listening to Please has passion, beauty and futuristic upscale sound. These days it's more like commercial hair product music. With Neil usually not in tune. And the outfits they wear in stage follows the decline of the music. The more outrageous the more sterile. Maybe it's monly and old age. Maybe success. Maybe they haven't been inspired by any music lately. Still thinking their over digital in your face Electronica is still the thing. Well its not boys'
forever 1984-1994...

Pet Shop Boys has always balanced wry, quintessentially English lyrics with unforgettable melodies and danceable electronic rhythms, and in the process have become one of the greatest current examples of a successful marriage of art and commerce - their songs nearly always feature all of the hallmarks of classic pop music.

Hi, I'd first like to say that the world wouldn't be nearly as awesome if "Saint Etienne" weren't in it! (my favorite band) Their huge fans of The Pet shop boys bytheway! Secondly, I just discovered how great The Pet shop boy's album "Yes" is! Thirdly, great brief review of the Duo! I've actually not been that much into their music but after hearing their albums "Release, Nightlife and now Yes; I'm quickly becoming a fan now!

Fantastic band, fantastic career. Yes up to 1993's Very, they were untouchable and the quality has slipped a little bit afterwards but who could maintain that supreme level more? Even in their worst, they have had some occasional brilliant flashes that continue to mesmerize me. Hit and Miss and Discoteca, to Step Inside from Bilingual; Radiophonic and the first three songs from Nightlife, Love is a Catastroph from Release, and magnificient Minimal from Fundamental.

Yes is their great comeback. But Electric is their supremacy again. The Last to Die, a cover that Bruce would be proud.

Their crowning achievement, IMHO, is the first three albums. Simply the best pop songs around and discography is the best string of singles in music history. The best song is surprisingly a cover. Always On My Mind. Who would think that two synth lads from UK would cover a Elvis song better than him?

Thank God some of us grew with Pet Shop Boys. If they were not around the world would be dull, grey and boring.

Buy their latest Electric and see how Overhyped Daft Punk album pales against it.

They are back!
I have been a fan since early 1985, when West End Girls was playing a lot in the Radio. Then Suburbia, then the Actually songs, Introspective, Behaviour, which I think is their masterpiece. Then Very, when I got to see them Live, during their tour around South America.
I continued to listen to their albums, Bilingual, Nightlife, loving them all. Then, their dark ages started, with the Release album, which was not at all Pet Shop Boys, as I knew them. Saw them live too, in San Diego. What a dissapointment, even depressing. After that show, I stopped listening to them, until 2006 when I gave them another chance, with Fundamental... that was a weird album, and I believed that they were done, never to have another new song play on the radio, and no chances to be on the charts.

Yes, the album was an amazing comeback, then Elysium, another Release-esque album that is very hardcore PSB fan.
Electric has brought back that amazing magic heard from their 3 first albums, and fine times ahead, hopefully.

They have been awarded a lifetime achievement award, but the way I see it, they didn't produce anything worth after Nightlife, and until Yes, they made a comeback.

This is my most underestimated bands of the 80s! I listened to them on the radio in the 80s, put on the 12"es on the dj setup of a friend of mine, but never really digged them!

In 2001 I discovered their reissues with the further listening series. I was surprised they made albums in the 80s, I was only aware of their 12"es and compilations! So I got PLEASE first and was pleased! The best reissue I've seen! Fine bonus material with 12" mixes and b-sides or alikes! And on top, the PSB are talking about each and every track in this release! And man do they tell insides of their own history!

As I am into producing electronic myself, I was very pleased with these insides! I then went for the other albums and I am an admirer ever since!

Just a quick thought about PSB, as I now consider them my favourite band of all time.

There are very, very few pop artists who produce contemporary, enjoyable music over the course of more than a quarter-century. I would place PSB on this extraordinarily short list. They seem to have an endless well of catchy, memorable pop songs. Relevant, sometimes topical lyrics combine with outstanding electronic production and intricate, affecting vocals. The result is some of the best music of all time and the soundtrack to my life.

Here's to another 25 years!

Somewhere around the Very album, they started to loose their inspiration, which by now is on miserable levels. Comparing to the stuff like Actually, Introspective and Behavior, everything later is getting more weaker. I don't know what happened to them, but somewhere deep I know they're missing their own vibes. That's for sure. Domino Dancing, Left To My Own Devices and DJ Culture, this kind of inspiration - that's what true PSB lovers miss. Even their 2-girl tribute band from Sweeden remade just their older songs.

Culturally speaking, PSB did as much as pop's other darlings - The Beatles, The Stones, Bowie, Kraftwerk, Eno and Morrissey.

By now, their music is one hell of a fancy scrapbook of lost links between pop and the avantgarde - staying equally appealing and provocative. Hardly an album broke their chain of impressive pop-consistency (personally, 'Nighlife' I find the weakest of the lot), as they re-invent themselves both auditively and visually.

Let's hope one day PSB will be a museum artefact. Each sleeve, each song, each album and video alike keep their image a tiny little major classic pretense. If extravagance lost its course in pop's everyday glamour of fake smell and shine, PSB always found a way to put it right. Less is more, the measure is right.
