Pet Shop Boys are not just for Christmas!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas (Audio CD)
Fresh from seeing their gargantuan Pandomonium tour, this CD/EP is the perfect home companion to the mind-blowing Tennant/Lowe live stage performance as well as being a fitting end to a very fruitful year for Pet Shop Boys. As well as subtle, sample-happy track 'All over the world', you get a four-on-the-floor bpm interpretation of Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida' in unison with their own 1988 classic, 'Domino Dancing'. New b-sides include a fab electro cover and extended version of Madness's 'My Girl' which again works brilliantly with the traditional PSB sound-stamp on it. Some very exciting and adventurous cover-versions on this disc, with a musical air of just how influential the 80s were to todays dance music.
With the advent of the down-load, CD/EPs are becoming frightfully rare unfortunately, so fellow physical music die-hards out there, please savour the moment with me!
