This is one of the best PSB albums but it wasn't until I got all 6 of their rereleased albums that I realised how excellent they all are! This new packaging and new CD with plenty of unreleased or unreleased on CD tracks takes the biscuit. For all those people out there who reckon the PSB have been off the scene for many a year, you'd do well to revisit all their old material, and bring yourself bang up to date. They are one of the most successful bands in the UK even now. They may not make a song and dance about it, but then, they never did!

This album, Very and its much more rare companion, Very Relentless, can be summed up in the Pet Shop Boys' own words (one of the lyrics taken from the song Yesterday When I was Mad) -- they've 'both made such a little go a very long way'. A very long way, indeed.
All of the songs on this album have the same feel -- the same texture, the same lyrical quality, the same 'groove' if you will -- which is remarkable for a collection of different songs, from ballads to a roaring remake of the Village People's Go West (a song Toyota still uses occasionally in advertising -- listen for the backing music). One would almost swear that the actual Village People are making up the chorus as Neil Tennant's high-pitched, flat voice calls out 'Life is peaceful there' as the gruff, deep voices growl, GO WEST!
All the songs are dancable (not true of all the songs on all the albums) -- the videos which accompany this album all have the same computer-generated motion and costume and background (someone in the Pet Shop Boys camp obviously had recently discovered computer-generated graphics and animation and decided to have some fun!). I was frankly a bit disappointed with the videos, because the idea was original, but it was the same idea for each video (and we fans are used to stylish, original videos for each song).
This album will please Pet Shop Boys fans; it may find a good home with electronic/disco music fans. As with all Pet Shop Boys songs, listen to the lyrics -- they are witty and thoughtful -- the song Dreaming of the Queen actually plays on a recurrent nightmare/stress dream that the average Brit would have but Americans don't -- the stress that the Queen drops by for a visit when you're not ready (either undressed, or dirty house, &c.

Dead, the Pet Shop Boys? After the commercial failure of "Behaviour." in 1990, the release of a "Best of" album in 1991, and a year off in 1992 you'd be forgiven to think so.

...but on top of being very talented and very disciplined musicians, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are also quite competitive. In a Pop world which is quite thankless in suddenly burying alive bands that it adored some months before, the Boys have attempted and successfully managed to remain in the charts and write magnificent, lasting music.

With "Very" (1993), their seventh album and their fifth with brand new material, PSBs show the versatility of their talent and their ability to keep the public interested. For "Very", they decided to be the producers of the album, with the help of Stephen Hague, who produced the Boys' first album, "Please", back in 1985-1986. Difficult to say if the idea was to go back to some sort of "original" PSB sound - but "Very" sounds much richer than the dry analogic synthesizers of "Behaviour.". It is also much more richly orchestrated with heavy brass, superb orchestral accompaniment by Anne Dudley on three tracks. Members of the family like JJ Belle, Sylvia Mason-James and Pete Gleadall are back on guitars, vocals and programming respectively.

What is striking on "Very" is the variety of colors and melodic invention that is being thrown at the listener pretty much on every track. Perversely, if you could argue that some singles on "Behaviour." were more memorable than on "Very", you cannot deny that "Very" is a much more CONSISTENT piece of work. Every single track is aimed at surprising the listener and generating amazement and admiration.

But it's worth it for this album.
This was the PSB's definitive album. At once futuristic dance, evocative melancholy and wonderful composition, this work has everything for the discerning PSB fan.
The moment that Neil bursts forth with the line "remember when we were so easily led, behind the cricket pavilion and the bicycle shed" during the stomping opener "Can You Forgive Her?" you know that you are in for something truly special. There isn't really a weak track, but the real outstanding moments come with the dramatic and thought provoking "The Theatre" and the smash hit dance extravaganza "Go West".
If you love elctropop, high camp and impossible drama then this is one for the collection. On the other hand, if you have any Dire Straits albums in your collection then you should probably give it a miss.
Enjoy

When CD arrived my first thoughts were that it did not sound right. I have only one other CD being "Ultimate" plus a handful of other songs by the PSB. Therefore it was one of disappointment when I first heard it. However after several listenings it started to grow on me so much so that I liked all the tracks in equal measure. I subsequently put it aside for a few weeks to listen to other music. On returning to it I find that I have the same feelings that I first had and that the sound being not quite right is perhaps to do with the remastering. There seems to be a type of hissing sound coming from the electronics which I suppose to be the synthesizers which I find quite off putting and it is on all the tracks. It is a pity as the singing of Neil Tennant and music of Chris Lowe are great. I am going to try to find a copy of the original recording to see how different they sound. I still think the makeup of the CD is great, it is just a shame about the background noise. Obviously the hissing sound is meant to be there and other people will like it but it is not to my taste. This will not stop me from buying other albums from the PSB but I shall probably avoid the remastered versions.
