A historical artifact that follows the PSB through various Bsides where they masterfully play with disco, electro, italo, HNGR ,synthpop, new romantic, house, acid, acid house, rave, alt rock, even traces of miami bass (as in "We all feel better in the dark" )! The kicker here is that these guys were active in each of these scenes as they developed historically, so yea, posers they are not , but pretty legit by all standards! Yes they have incorporated underground music into pop structures, but I think both underground music AND pop are the better for it .

Please validate the conflicting barcodes. Unable to find other submission for "Alternative" which duplicates the inconsistency. Is this perhaps a typo?
Label: Parlophone ‎– 7243 8 34023 2 8 [this barcode consistently indicates the limited edition packaging]

How is it that this collection of B-sides is easily the best release by this band; never slouches in the studio during the same period that this collection documents? The quality of many of these throwaways easily exceeds not only many of their own A-sides, but most of their contemporaries as well. And the ones that would not have passed muster as A-sides on their own serve to admirably broaden the band's scope in a usually fascinating fashion. I used to own the CD singles that comprised this package, but grew tired of the remixes. Particularly in the 90s. So I sold off the singles, but in listening to them one more time, was struck by the quality of the B-sides, so I planned on getting a copy of this "one day." As it turned out, that day came before I had even divested myself of all of my singles. Listening to these concentrated in a single package with no remixes/A-sides is a very powerful experience! I should have bought this when it was released.

A fine double album of the Boys' b-sides from the first ten years of Pet pop showtime. Too often underestimated as flipside fillers, these songs surprise collectively as a smooth album on its own, with its own highlights and hidden gems. B-sides are not intended to hit, so they avoid standards and even experiment a bit. First they breed some kitschy disco-dream, but end up poetic and quiet. The Very-era b-sides get a special credit as flawless, but many more of them have proven as popular and fan-favorites as their A-side twins. Go on, it's good pop.

This is a collection of Pet Shop Boys B-sides from 1985 to 1995 (originally intended to be called "Besides"). While some groups only use remixes or garbage on b-sides the Pet Shop Boys always had the claim to deliver tracks that are worth the money. So here we have two cds of quality pop other acts would built a whole career on and with Shameless a song that has chart topping potential. A reworked version of Paninaro which was originally released as the B-side to Suburbia in 1986 was a single in its own right in 1995.
