Behold the (almost) complete Pet Shop Boys video canon ! Terrific value for money, this 3 hour, 35 tracker contains some stunning images courtesy of Howard Greenhalgh's computer simulations (Go West, Can you forgive her, Liberation), Eric Watson's showmanship (What have I done To deserve this) and Bruce Weber's quotation-fronted parties featuring beautiful people (Being boring). What's more, the optional commentary from Neil and Chris actually adds to the experience and is refreshingly low on sniggery in-jokes. The approaches range from picture-stories-with-great-locations (Heart) to fashion statements (Paninaro) to genre-satirizing cameos (Single-Bilingual). The music speaks for itself (don't take my word for it, NME gave the CD ten out of ten) and the visuals offer a compelling compliment. The collection is let down by Red Letter Day (anthem of a song which is killed by an uninspired video) and the omission of both Absolutely Fabulous and the poetic Miracles, but otherwise untoppable.

This is what we've been waiting for - all of the PSB's videos on one amazing DVD - I could not agree more with the reviews already here, but one thing and one thing only bothered me about this DVD and that was the Boys 3 hours commentary with Chris Heath, their biographer.
It's quite entertaining to begin with, but becomes quite dull after a while - there are long pauses where they have literally nothing to say. Chris Heath tries to nudge them along from time to time, but not as much as you'd think, so when you start to get to the end of the Very videos, things becomes almost catatonic - I think this is also partly because in my opinion their recent videos have also been quite dull anyway.
Their commentary also makes you realise how little input they have in the ideas behind them - how many times does Chris Heath say "So whats this video about?" and Neil and Chris will say something like " We don't know/recall" or "It was the directors idea at the time so we haven't a clue". I just feel the commentary would have benefitted from some input from the directors themselves if this is the case.
Additionally, Neil and Chris talk a lot about people they know, who, unless you were that person, or a die hard fan (and I am pretty die hard but still didn't follow some of this) would be completely over your head. It's like listening in on a party conversation talking about people you don't know.
So, to sum up, fantastic DVD but loses a star for me because of the slightly substandard commentary.

Format: DVD
At present time The Pet Pet Shop Boys are not at the top of charts but this DVD is the evidence of their well done work within past 20 years. The DVD Popart 2003 offers very complex overview of their whole creative far and near history. Their sound changed throughout the years (only a little bit ??) and you still can say their have their own specific style of sound - they don't need to be similar to someone (something) else that could be higher in the charts. If you're interested in amazing all-in-one collection of the their biggest hits, you're are welcome to buy this DVD. The videos are good pieces of the (pop)art, sometimes there's strong colaboration with computer graphics. Together with surround sound you get an amazing experience. Otherwise, the DVD booklet contents only screeshots from some clips and the list of clips in the middle of booklet. This brief style is typical for PSB, but I don't like it very much. More information will be a plus. You won't be dissapointed, but be careful - I wrote this small review as a PSB fan. If you are not a strong PSB "positive" (some today's disco-chart fan :-)), your point-of-view could be different you could be dissatisfied when you buy this DVD. This DVD is focused on the people (the listeners..), who can read (listen) between the lines and feel the deeper message - hidden in some songs and videos.

Format: DVD
They're all here! The cringemaking woodenness of the early videos, the camp over-the-top Heart and It's A Sin, the poignant Rent, the special-effects-laden Go West, computer generated Chris Lowe in Yesterday, When I Was Mad, the bizarre but kinda-cute Home and Dry. Pet Shop Boys have never been afraid to push new boundaries, visually or musically, and here's the collection to prove it.
The videos feature some varied cameos - Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Barbara Windsor (Peggy Mitchell) to name but two. This DVD features every video that the boys ever made up to 2002's I Get Along/Email, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Sad that the new video, Miracles wasn't completed in time for this collection, though.
Hearing the amazing voice of Dusty Springfield on What HAve I DOne to Deserve This? is enough to make Christina and Britney crawl into a hole with shame, but on the whole every track on this is a gem. Never thought it was wise to remix Paninaro in 1995, but generally, if you want to see how to make fantastic music and videos for almost twenty years, this DVD is a must for you.
It doesn't often snow at Christmas, so buy this instead.

Format: DVD
This is a DVD collection of every PSB single video up to and including the Release period. Let me repeat that- EVERY video. From the well known (Can you forgive her?) to the not easily obtained (Somewhere) to the I-never-knew-existed (Paninaro). It even contains both versions of Opportunities, which to the obsessive PSB fan is manna from heaven. Of course, our heros veer from the superb to the tragic in this compilation, and the quality veers from fantastic (Single-Bilingual) to the strange (Paninaro '95) to the what-the-hell-were-they-thinking (Home and Dry, which is notorious for its endless monotonous tracking of rats in the London Underground). That said, the quality of the songs is wonderful, and aside from its value as pop history it's fun to sit through. The extended versions of three songs are a real plus as well, and though the commentary is a bit sparse there are some golden moments.
Someone might take me to task for not mentioning that the song Absolutely Fabulous isn't on this DVD, to which I reply first, it was never an 'official' PSB song, and second, to be given so much and then to complain about it strikes me as rather ungracious... :-)
