    "Fundamental" hits the store: I decided to buy this special edition (a "Very/Relentless" kind of release, but with major differences). The original album opens with "Psychological", a nice, dark electro track that was released on 12" a few months ago for the clubs.
    To the listening of the rest of the CD, one get the point fast: if you are stuck in 1984, this might be the album of the year for you: go and get it. The 80's sounds are everywhere: even on the remix CD which features tracks you'd thunk they where popular around 1985 (example: "Integral" is massively inspired by Dead Or Alive's "Spin Me Round"). If you expect the poppy Eurohouse à la "Very" or their "Relentless" Technoïsh side on "Fundamental", you won't find it intact. I personally don't like synth pop much. The little I listen to from the Pet Shop Boys in that genre range from "Behaviour" to "Nightlife".
    Highlights: The lyrics of Neil Tennant are well written (as always), even if I see some redundant elements and/or sentences (example: "Where angels fear to tread" in "The S&G Show" was previously heard in "Discoteca" on the album "Bilingual"). Melodically, the Boys are still performing very well in general.
    The bad points: The rock touch is, still, awful. There are more ballads than what I have thought. Some are good, some aren't. Some of the remixes are boring or just bad. Their collaboration with Elton John on "On Private" will probably be a big gay anthem. The trancey keyboards sounds à la Safri Duo are too much for me.
    Depending of who you are and what you are listening to most often, you may like or dislike "Fundamental". Since I am not a "80's revival fan", this is not my cup of tea.
