The essential purchase of your life,
This review is from: Pop Art: Pet Shop Boys - The Hits (Audio CD)
Someday somebody might might make an album as good as this. Perhaps.
The monster hits - West End Girls, It's A Sin, Always On My Mind et al - stand alongside the self-referential techno-pop of Yesterday When I Was Mad or the string tinged tragedy of I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore as proof that sales do not equate with quality, especially in pop music - the most commercially driven of art forms.
The two new songs Miracles and Flamboyant show that Pet Shop Boys are as good as they ever were, it's just the pop landscape which has shifted.
One brilliant single may be considered fortunate.
Thirty odd looks like genius.
