BEFORE sees the Pet Shop Boys beginning to integrate electronics and dance music culture even more seamlessly into their special brand of pop. The title track is a lovely ditty, sweet and romantic (though with a disturbing undertone, if you listen to the lyrics). "The Truck-Driver and his Mate" is a little bit more rough trade, if you catch my drift. "Hit and Miss" mixes reminisces and romance, but the track isn't as polished as it could be. And yet another version of "In the Night" -- can't get enough of a good thing, I say.
