    PSB Dance Album

    Long time fan and love PSB. Would be five stars if the lyrics were as good as the music. While the music is fantastic, the lyrics were not up to par with the witty and ingenious lyrics/song that we've come to expect from classic PSB. None the less, it's a great party album.

    One of the great pop/dance duos off all time are still going strong. It would be wrong to dismiss Pet Shop Boys as another simple dance and techno band. Their music is always better, their lyrics always deeper and more clever, and the results more satisfying than any others in the genre. This album is fantastic, full of incredibly catchy tunes which easily slide into PSB's catalog. It's not quite as strong as its predecessor, Electric, but that was one of their career highs. The lyrics this time around are a bit simpler, except for the ingenious "The Dictator Decides". I think the first single, "The Pop Kids" is one of the weaker songs on the album actually, though it's still quite good. I think PSB fans would definitely be satisfied. And new fans would be surprised at just how good dance and pop music can be.

    Not their best

    It's the Pet Shop Boys, but not their best. At best it's a simple dance album from them, not necessarily the quality I've come to expect and enjoy. Only a couple true songs on the record. I have to say, it's just ok.

    I was planning to see the Pet Shop Boys for the first time in concert. Their tour was the same name as this new release. I knew by reviewing past concert setlists, they were performing at least five songs off of the new cd. So I purchased this cd to become more familiar with the new music. Each track was great on Super and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend this cd if you are a Pet Shop Boys fan.

    Solid Effort, but Nothing Outstanding

    PSB albums typically feature killer melodies and hooks, perfect for a three-minute pop song. This and their last album (Electric) has focused more on the providing killer beats for the dancefloor. The result is a collection without any standout tracks, though "Say It To Me" and "Groovy" get the closest.

    Solid but Unspectacular w/Great Single

    I really love the single 'Pop Kids' and I've been a fan of the Pet Shop Boys since the 2000's - a bit too young to catch on to them in their heyday of the 90's. Still, I think they're some of the best 'dance-pop' groups around. Why I'm somewhat disappointed with this album is that none of the other tracks quite live up to the quality of the single. I'm reminded of a review of an Oasis live album from about 2001 ("Familiar To Millions") where a reviewer wrote something to the effect of " It's 'fun' - undeniably - but it's just fun - and there was a time they (Oasis, or in our case the PSB) gave 'great fun' ". I think that sums up my perspective. Not disappointed so much as underwhelmed. But then perhaps I am judging them to too high of a standard - given that for any group, to still be relevant in your 3rd decade as artists is still quite a go. And I feel PSB held up better with age than many groups, including Oasis did, so I guess it's all relative. But probably if you just got the aforementioned single you'd have gotten the best.

    It's back to the old PSB, where the music is all upbeat! It's great to just put this into the machine and feel good!
