Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The Pet Shop Boys' fifth "proper" studio album sees a return to more club-oriented production styles; Very is produced by Neil and Chris themselves (with a little help from Stephen Hague and Brothers In Rhythm) and it shows in the now slightly dated-sounding bleeps and bloops that pepper most every track here. Nevertheless, the songs are as good as always, from the disco stomp of "Can You Forgive Her" to the rollicking "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing", the affecting "The Theatre" and the brilliant but bonkers "Yesterday, When I Was Mad".

There are sad, slow songs here, too; the regretful "Young Offender", "To Speak Is A Sin", which details the sordid chat-up processes of certain nightclubs and the poignant "Dreaming Of The Queen", with its strangely prescient lyrics ("And Di replied/That there were no more lovers left alive)".

The album's closed by the PSB's anthemic ni-NRG reworking of the Village People's "Go West" and a secret hidden track featuring the vocal talents of one Chris Lowe; another perfect pop package is topped off by a 16-track CD of B-sides, remixes, demos and live tracks, including such gems as the Pets' version of Blur's "Girls And Boys". --Rikki Price

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!

Format: Audio CD
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.

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

Neil Tennant is a musical genius and this is my favourite - its funny, tender, perceptive and has benefited from the remastering to make it smoother in terms of continuity. If you haven't bought it yet then go ahead, perfect driving music.

I have been a fan of the Pet Shop Boys since the days of West End Girls and have bought many of their albums but his one had escaped me until now. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try and I am delighted. Every track on the album is superb, not too noisy and upbeat, just pure swinging Pet Shop Boys, it's my favourite selection so far. Best tracks are, 'I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing', 'Liberation', 'Dreaming of the Queen', 'The Theatre', 'One and One Make Five', and 'Young Offender' is my favourite track. All the rest are brilliant to with some amazing electronic sound effects and To Speak is a Sin has an appealing Eastern twist. The album finishes with a remixed version of an old favourite Go West. All in all you will have a fantastic journey if you buy this album. P.S I am age 70.

This is the perfect pop album.
After behaviour people were wondering if the PSB had grown up, moved away from their dance synth pop and matured, 3 years later we caught a glimpse of those pointy hats and orange jumpsuits....and the Very phase had arrived.

A fantastic album at the time and still is.
Track 1 - Can You Forgive Her - Perfect choice as a single, great video, catchy chorus, it has everything, the boys threw the kitchen sink at this one as the lead single for their new look.
Track 2 - I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing - Here come's the sixties, a great pop song, ridiculous camp over the top video with the worst dancing in the history of music video but a very very catchy pop tune.
Track 3 - Liberation - Another beautiful summer song, very catchy, another fantastic video for it's time, great chill out sing a long song.
Track 4 - A Different Point Of View - The sing a long songs just keep coming, so catchy it lifts you up and you can help but tap your feet to the chorus, great track and could have easily been a single.
Track 5 - Dreaming Of The Queen - Hilarious lyrics and has a very different meaning after the death of Princess Diana, lovely song with beautiful strings.
Track 6 - Yesterday When I Was Mad - Unashamedly PSB, Great choice as a single, such a catchy chorus again, and the video was wonderful it really was quite good.
Track 7 - The Theatre - Should it have been a single...probably, It would have made a great charity single that's for sure with proceeds going to homeless charities, it also would have given us some truly great remixes, one of my favourites from very this one.
Track 8 - One And One Make Five - The weakest track on the album for me, no more than a filler but again..a catchy little tune.
