It seems a number of PSB fans are decrying Disco 4 as a bastardisation of the Disco Series concept, in that this time round it's mostly a non-stop mix of club tracks they've done for other artists. Which is an odd sentiment really, given that Disco 2 is generally considered PSB's weakest release and Disco 3 was not non-stop remix at all but a tactical electro-comeback after the less than rapturous reception of Release. So, to be fair, the Disco concept is fair game, and this outing number 4 is certainly better than 2 and conceptually purer than 3. If there's an issue it should be that no big PSB fan will not own most if not all of this music already. But altogether here, in non-stop mix format, in true-to-form fabulous packaging, you have to acknowledge the impressive line-up of weighty legends Bowie, Madonna and Yoko Ono with the cool of The Killers, Atomizer and Rammstein. As is so often asked with PSB - who else in pop music could do this kind of thing?

People reading my Pet Shop Boys reviews will know that, contrary to the rest of the fan base, I am pretty rapturous about Disco 2 but less than enthusiastic about Disco 3, in my view the weakest of the lot.
Strangely enough, the Boys had granted us with one "Disco" album per decade: number 1 was released in 1986, 2 in 1994 and 3 in 2003.
Disco 4 was released in 2007 and the idea was brilliant: use remixes designed by the Pet Shop Boys for other artists (6 tracks out of 8) and for themselves.
Looking at the choice of songs in the back cover, one is impressed by the quality and the diversity. The beautiful "reinvention" of David Bowie's "Hallo Spaceboy" is the oldest track here (1996). The rest was released/remixed between 2003 and 2007.
What is really good here is the combination of choices: all these mixes fit very well with each other and, in most cases, are excellent mixes in the first place: "Hallo Spaceboy" and Madonna's "Sorry", which were both considered better than the album version by the songs' respective authors; the PSB's Maxi Mix of "I'm with stupid" and the "Perfect Immaculate" mix of Integral; and the beautiful "stars are blazing" mix of The Killers' "Read my mind".
To be sure, in the Boys's very long career I would have loved if Parlophone could have unearthed other gems such as the Disco mix of Patsy Kensit's "I'm not scared"; or Cicero's "Love is everywhere" or "That loving fveeling"'s extended mixes. Closer to us, Peter Burns' "Jack and Jill party" is a great track.

Excellent! A chance to have all their great remixes in one place - a shame Boys & Girls is missing, though. Not really a PSB album, so understand the disappointment in previous reviews. And yes, PSB do release a lot of compilations between new music, but that doesn't mean the music isn't great. What is excellent here is the fact they have brought together diverse artists under one banner - like PSB introducing the artists and fans to this common ground: the fantastic, never-ever disappointing PSB remix. For pure PSB fans, its a shame you cannot simply download the Integral remix (you fools for not making this the cracking single it deserves to be.) But for people who like their dance music to be simply music in its own right, this is another excellent collection.

Disco 4 has come in for some chop, however as a fan the chance to own an official PSB product with these tracks on is Heaven. They are excellent producers and have done stirling work for other artists. The more the better, this album is a class display of just what they can do, and displays the artists who want there expertise on there records.

Can't wait for the next studio album, Fundamental was one of there best !!
5 Stars from me.

Okay, so I have read the previous comments and have to agree that this is a brilliant idea by the PSB's to put out a remix album of the tunes that they have been given by other artists. And when you listen to it you can see why they are one of the most under-rated artists of the last 25 years...Apart from superstar DJs how many artists have remixed Madonna, David Bowie AND Rammstein??? No I don't see Erasure here either...So do purchase if you are a true PSB fan - if not then WHY not?? The only minus point is the missing PSB remix of the Blur track "Girls & Boys"...

A fun, bargain priced expedition into the world of the old-skool disco epic..

One really has to question the validity of the Disco series. The Pet Shop Boys produce occasional remix albums of little real purpose except to keep the racks stocked. In the past eighteen months the band have been fiercely prolific - releasing four albums (including this one), two full length DVD's, umpteen singles, remixing almost everyone around, and touring the world without a break. Frankly, they're everywhere - and making Bono look like an underachieveing recluse. At 50-ish singles, and 26 (ish) albums, "Disco 4" is just another Pet Shop Boys album. And that's no bad thing.

Not bad for a duo of fifty something disco Gods. But is "Disco 4" any good? Well, it's by no means a 'proper' record. Think of it as an extended EP of PSB remixes and you'll do nicely. The very concept of an album is elastic in their hands : whereas an album is an artistic statement, "Disco 4" is just a collection of songs. But what a collection. Somehow , despite featuring only two original PSB tracks (and six remixes of other artists,), "Disco 4" comes across as as much a Pet Shop Boys album as anything else they've done - albeit one stuffed with guest vocalists.. In some ways the album is an exercise in showing how little the actual song matters : it's all in the production, and shows that the Pet Shop Boys are the most under-rated production duo in decades.

Featuring guest turns by The Killers, David Bowie, Yoko Ono, the incomparable Rammstein, and um... Madonna, "Disco 4" is proof of the diversity - and homogeneity - of the Boys work.
