Product Description

Product Description

'Yes' is the tenth studio album by legendary British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys. Bestowed with the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the 2009 Brit Awards, this is a timely reminder of the pair's subtle influence on British pop music. Featuring tracks produced by Xenomania (Girls Aloud, Sugababes), this is a wondrous and sumptuous record packed with enough surprises that will please fans and newcomers alike. Includes the single "Love Etc".

Amazon.co.uk

It’s testament to the evergreen appeal of the Pet Shop Boys that they can enlist all manner of skilful and popular collaborators and come out sounding more like the Pet Shop Boys than ever. Yes the duo’s tenth album, finds them working with Xenomania, the production team behind Girls Aloud, with former Smith Johnny Marr guesting on guitar and Owen Pallett, string arranger behind the Last Shadow Puppets, providing orchestral flourishes. The result, though, might be the duo’s best record since 1999’s Nightlife, and perhaps longer still. There’s an epic opening salvo in the shape of "Love, etc", a sardonic skewering of the rich and famous, and the Tchaikovsky-sampling "All Over the World"--a tender eulogy to the love song born up on magnificent orchestral synthesisers. Pet Shop Boys still excel at mixing intelligence and wit: "Building A Wall" is a deft mix of politics and play, Tennant announcing "There’s nowhere to defect to anymore!" But the record’s most ambitious moment comes with the closing track, "Legacy". Heavy on the ennui and and genuinely affecting, it’s about a politician--Tony Blair?--relinquishing power and returning to normal life: "Public opinion may not be on your side/There re those who think they’ve been taken for a ride/You’ll get over it". --Louis Pattison

Yes the Pet Shop Boys are one of the very few bands that have delivered consistently good pop records for 25 years. And yes, Yes is one their best albums they have made in that time, dare I say it at least as good as Behaviour. There's great depth here, fantastic dance tracks, majestic melancholy and just brilliant pop music that fit almost as well into today's scene as it would have done 2 decades ago.

There's much for 80's music fans to love; the infectious Did You See Me Coming would not be out of place on a New Order record; Vulnerable could have been lifted straight off Behaviour, but equally Love etc and Pandemonium amongst others could have come at any point since. Amazingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, all the songs on Yes are excellent. My favourite track is King Of Rome, it has that Jealousy feel to it; melancholy in spades; Neil's haunting voice losing nothing in all this time.

20 years ago Yes would have hit the number 1 spot with ease, many of tracks would have got to number 1 in the singles chart too had they been released. Would that be the case now, I wish - where is quality today, so lacking in an "Idle" world?

This record deserves a wide audience. If you have not discovered the Pet Shop Boys start here and then buy Behaviour, then Please, Actually and Fundamental. You will be rewarded

For me the purchase of West End Girls at a record shop off Oxford Street back in the late 80's led to a journey around the world which lasted 20 years and continues today. Yes takes me back over that time, it is on my iPod now and I know I will play it repeatedly over the coming weeks and months.

If ever there was an album confirming the Pet Shop Boys' influence over pop music of the past 20 years this is it. 'Yes' is a delight. True, there are no real surprises here in terms of change of direction but what you do get are 11 tracks that have been mined deep from the PSB goldmine. The arrangements are sumptuous and the melodies are powerful - in most cases. There are no less than (at least) five great hit singles here - 'Love etc.', 'All Over the World', 'Beautiful People', 'More Than a Dream' and 'Pandemonium'. That's nearly half the album! These guys have a knack of writing melodies and spikey lyrics that - once you hear them - you really can't get them out of your head. Truly infectious. So, congratulations to the guys. If you love PSB, you will love this album. If you have not been into them, then this album is unlikely to sway you. An upbeat, optimistic 'power pop' album in depressing times.

Here's a thought... perhaps the PSB's should call an album "Bi-Polar", because that's what they REALLY are. Up and down like a tart's knickers. For every "Bilingual" there's a "Nightlife", for every "Yes" there's a "Fundamental". This is one hell of an UP album from the boys, so the usual melancholic tones are pretty muted. In fact the first four tracks "Love etc.", "All Over The World", "Beautiful People" and "Did You See Me Coming" are relentlessly upbeat for the boys. OK, so "Vulnerable" is solipsistic, but it may also be a companion/answer piece to go on the mantlepiece along with Robbie Williams' "Strong". "More Than A Dream" bounces back up again, "Building A Wall" is about being young and gay in England "'Oo d'you think you are - Captain Britain??". "King of Rome" slips a bit into melancholy, "Pandemonium" stomps right back into High NRG, with "The Way It Used to Be" following wistfully, before a grand finale and follow up to "Left to my Own Devices" in "Legacy" a pumping last track that would be a killer onstage (although requiring a Mahler-sized orchestra!). If nothing else, this album proves the band are producing albums that are at least as good,if not several times BETTER than their earlier ones. Go on, lam out a few quid and have something to bop to in the car!

can it really be 25 years!!!

the pop pioneers return with a stunning new album harking back to the good old days!!! totally unique and as flamboyant as ever...

track by track

"love etc" is a standard pet shop boys track and the first single! ingenious as ever, simple yes complex at the same time..and a great chorus thats gets in your head and you end up singing it all day! 9/10

"all over the world" reminds me of the "bilingual" album! its a bit ploddy and annoyingly happy sounding...i prefer a bit of miserabilism! 8/10

"beautiful people" is very much the same as the previous track, ok as an album track 8/10

"did you see me coming" is pure poptastic perfection! all about finding new love, its so uplifting! one of my favourite pet shop boys tracks ever! 10/10

"vunerable" is another classic with great lyrics about putting on a face in a relationship - and a perfect vocal delivery by neil 10/10

"more than a dream" keeps the classic theme of the old psb sound, another love song! i love it 10/10

"building a wall" is yet another gem! i think it has a deep politic message, about life these days however i like to listen to it as a self preservation song! has a great spoken bit by neil about sand in the sandwiches...another great track 10/10

"king of rome" slows it down a bit...a bit maudling about life but yet another classic! 10/10

"pandemonium" i love that word! and i love the song - full on electro feast! perfect pop perfection about falling in lurve! would be a great single release! 10/10

"the way it use to be" is another favourite! i think im going to explode this album is so good!! great lyrics about thinking of the past and lost love...the track builds and builds!
