Pet Shop Boys are back with a vengeance, a full on album of electronica, dance and heavy bass this is an album to make you want to move. Bolshy and Love Is a Borgeous Construct are the biggest throwbacks to their 80s heyday, both catchy synth heavy numbers that will infect your brain and make you want to sing along. A more different note is the opener Axis and Shouting In The Evening, which are very bass heavy electronica tracks, with the latter veering on dubstep. There's also some rap in the form of Thursday from chart botherer Example, but to his credit he works well in the song. Album closer Vocal makes a wry summary of the album, pointing out that their are no instrumental or extended tracks, they're all solid 5 minute or less club tracks.
A very modern yet familiar sounding album, this proves that the PSB are still a force to be reckoned with
