5.0 out of 5 stars Very Positive, 28 July 2012
This review is from: Yes (Audio CD)
After having released a so-so Fundamental in 2005 PSB stormed back with this very joyful album, full of catchy tunes that generally hold in check overblown arrangements. The result is a bag of tunes filled with hooks and bells and whistles in top PSB category.

The lead track, Love Etc., is the best of the bunch, being probably among the best songs ever describing the Manic Millennium excesses (and its accompanying video). Other very strong tracks include the "orchestral meets dance music" All Around the World and the dance oriented More Than a Dream. There are, however, many tracks close to being as good and what constitutes as top picks varies a lot as seen by other reviews.

This album is among the best of PSB, being close in standards to Very and Actually. If you only buy a handful of PSB albums, include this one.

I think Fundamental is better. Much better. In fact Fundamental for me bucks the trend that ever since (and including) Behaviour there have been two poor/dreadful tracks on every Pest Shop Boys album. Yes definitely had two bad tracks. Fundamental only had one.
