Pet Shop Boys - Disco 2 - Cd

Format: Audio CD
The Pet Shop Boys are, to my mind, the best pop musicians in the business. Their output has a consistently high quality, and if they slip up every now and then, they are sure to bounce back. Their two most recent singles, Flamboyant and Miracles, are enough to show this.
Which meant that when I listened to this, I was surprised. My astonishment soon gave way to boredom and by the end I couldn't get it out of my stereo fast enough. I suppose you might want to dance to it, but it's good for little else (and I can't dance to save my life!). A load of tedious, repetitive tracks which segue into each other, and because they are so samey it's difficult to tell when one starts and the other ends. These aren't even the best remixes out there, and I don't know why they bothered.
If you want some good PSB remixes, go for Bilingual Limited Edition (NOT the special edition with the Further Listening disc)or PopArt Limited Edition, which features a third disc of remixes. I am not a remix fan, but they are far superior to the substandard material here.

Not a patch on the original "Disco", this second volume is a poorly seamed non-stop patchwork of 'Very' era tracks ranging from the great, "I Wouldn't Normally Do..[beatmasters mix]" to the grating, god-awful remixes of "Liberation" & "Yesterday When I Was Mad [vasquez mix]. I think the boys regretted it's release soon after & by the looks of things next years "Disco 3" will be much more like it. If your looking for the killer remixes from their early '90's output, seek out the CD singles which were mostly fantastic.

It was with some trepidation that I was waiting for the follow-up to PSB's remarkable "Disco", released in 1986. It took eight years for the Boys to produce this sequel but it really was worth the wait.
To be sure, this product is somewhat different from what "Disco" was. "Disco" focused on six remixes from the "Please" period that were nicely positioned next to one another.

The concept behind "Disco 2" is different - which is why I like it so much. Instead of songs, we have a full suite which is about 48 minutes long. The transition between the tracks is well done, and the whole piece is not dissimilar to what would have been a "Dance Suite", had the Pet Shop Boys been classical composers.
To take an example, several years after the completion of "West Side Story", Leonard Bernstein composed the "Symphonic Dances" from West Side Story. These were a 20-minute composition that was linking all the major themes from WSS in one seamless piece of music.

PSBs asked DJ Danny Rampling to do the same with selected remixes from the "Very" period (that's all the singles from "Very" plus "Absolutely Fabulous" covering the 1993-1994 period). Rampling added extracts from one of David Morales's remixes from "So Hard" and one of "Brothers in Rhythms"'s remixes of "We all feel better in the dark".

The whole thing works remarkably well - which was unexpected as some of the remixes selected here were pieces I LOATHED when I listened to them in their entirety (for exmple Farley & Heller's mix of "Go West" - pointless, of Rollo's dub from "Can you forgive her?" - spineless).

But the thing is that here none of the remixes are included in their entirety.

Format: Audio CD
The first 'Disco' album (or rather, mini-album) by the Pet Shop Boys was released a year or so after their main hit album, 'Please'. That album generated several major hits, and the 'Disco' remix version collected those in good, dance-able and recognisable form.
Thus, it is understandable that fans would expect the same treatment from an album entitled 'Disco 2', right? Well, not really. First of all, the Pet Shop Boys had been in a period of decline, relatively speaking, in terms of their overall popularity. Their album 'Behaviour' was the last major chart-topper; the album 'Very' got a lack-luster reception despite being in many ways very typically Pet Shop Boys in sound.
The songs collected on 'Disco 2' are primarily from 'Very', with a few extra tracks thrown in ('So Hard' from 'Behaviour', 'We all feel better in the dark' from a B-side, and 'Absolutely Fabulous' from their one-off single release in honour of the show of the same name). One of the problems is less PSB and more systemic, perhaps - the era of remixes staying more-or-less faithful to their base tracks had come to an end, and the remixes of the mid-1990s to the present are more DJ/remixer creations with just a hint of the original song thrown in. One often gets the sense of more remixer than PSB influence on the tracks here.
The songs included here (sometimes more than once) include 'Absolutely Fabulous' (x2), 'I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing' (x2), 'Go West' (the PSB remake of the Village People classic), 'Liberation', 'So Hard', 'Can you forgive her?
