"Please" is with "Actually" and perhaps "Very" and "Yes" one of the best PSB albums ever (no matter what the "Behavio(u)r" lovers out there will say). What's not to like about this album ? 4 top singles : the cult "West End Girls", the lovely "Love Comes Quickly", the smashing and ironic "Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)" and the epic sounding "Suburbia".

But that's not all, even the album songs are incredibly good "Two Divided By Zero", "I Want A Lover", "Why Don't We Live Together" and the more mellow "Tonight Is Forever". "Please" is a classic. Surely one of the 100 albums to listen to before you die.

And the song "Violence" will be even better in its "Hacienda version" released 8 years later during the "Very" days.
