Leaving is a lovely song, even if lyrically it sounds on the surface a rather odd choice for a single release. if only Parlophone had promoted it better - I only found out about this single by accident. Three good b-side tracks too. Tops for me is the Baby demo from 2003. If you know "The Most Incredible Thing" ballet score that Neil & Chris did, then this is the music on the radio that the princess dances to in her bedroom. Nice to finally have the whole song released. In His Imagination sits firmly within the tradition of "leaving home" songs and is a worthy addition. Hell is Neil Tennant at his driest, imagining the world's dictators (and Fred West!) rubbing shoulders in Hell and making room (eventually) for Robert Mugabe. The companion remix CD release (with a great Neil pic on the front) isn't so hot in my opinion. The Lost Her Love remix (also on the vinyl 12") is 11 mins of sub-Trouser Enthusiasts stuff that sounds very dated.

Always a pleasure to purchase the singles released by the Pet Shop Boys. Their bonus tracks not found on the official releases always please the long time fans.

Pet Shop Boys have demonstrated many times in the past that they have a unique talent for creating truly beautiful electronic pop songs - creations such as "You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk", "Miracles" and "Home & Dry" have all had this quality - but "Leaving", a heart-warmingly optimistic, uplifting song about loss and death, is their finest such song to date. For me personally it has enormous resonance and it has quickly become one of my favourite PSB songs. On the "Leaving" EP, I also highly recommend "Hell" and "In His Imagination", which continue the PSB tradition of high quality B-sides.

I will begin by saying I bought the physical singles package from the boys' website as all 3 were on an offer.

This is an excellent single - worth it for the b-sides. "Hell" is particularly enjoyable, whilst "In his imagination" seems to be speaking for the disillusioned younger generation. "Baby" is immediately familiar as it was used in their valet "The Most Incredible Thing".

The fact that it narrowly missed the Top 40 only goes to show how there's no accounting for taste in this country.

This CD 'maxi-single' just compounds the triumphant release of latest PSB album Elysium with a collection of four superb songs. The lead track would sound perfectly at home on 1990's Behaviour album - for me the Boys' at their peak - whilst Hell is just sheer PSB lyrical irony accompanied by a pulsating disco beat. 'In His Imagination' and the demo of 'Baby' complete a fine package, and as long as they continue to produce music of this quality I will certainly buy it.

Well, what can I say, these guys clearly know what they are doing, otherwise they would not be around for over 25 years, right? This album is certainly up with their best. Perfect for a late night listen...
