Who but PSB could craft such a beautiful, uplifting song about loss?,
This review is from: Leaving (Audio CD)
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.
