Having been a PSB fan for a number of years, I was uncertain that Nightlife was going to be a good album. I was proved wrong. Nightlife has got to be Neil and Chris' best album to date, and that seems to be the current view with most people I know.
The album follows what seems to be a "night out" - and the things that people experience - the starting process, getting worked up about going to a club, the expectations one has in going out, the hope, the joy, the let downs, the journey back home.
The first 2 tracks are probably the best - something quite meaty, and the type of records that the PSB's should return to. I remember hearing Chris Lowe talking about a track they were reviewing in the studio, and he said that they were probably not 80's enough .... meaning that the sound and energy that 80's dance music is retained in their best tracks.
The album as a whole is a masterpiece - it does take a few listens to enjoy it, and my favourite has to be Boy Strange which has a certain raw quality about it - I actually stomped to this record!

As a massive PSB fan, I wasnt impressed with this on first hearing. But after 2 or 3 listens Ive come quite attached to it!! The opening 2 tracks are Pure Hi NRG followed by the best track on the album, I Dont know what you want... which should have been a number 1. My own personal favorites are The Only One and Footsteps. All in all a fine album - Just dont knock it on the first play!!

Neil and Chris have produced their finest since Behaviour. All the songs here are given the trademark PSB cinematic sheen but they are each individual vignettes of modern life told from different perspectives. "You only tell me.." is country tinged, "Radiophonic" is Kraftwerk while "Boy Strange" is Bowie when he was any good. They are the only group in the UK who really understand pop music's ability to move and also to groove. Peerless.

The first three quarters of this record is just brilliant.I think theyre best album is 'Very' from '93 but this runs it close.'I don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore' and ' You only tell me you love me when your drunk' are just as good a songs as theyre titles make them sound, as is most of the first 3/4 of the record.Things go wrong with the final third for some reason, its full of filler material which would have been better left off but overall .. BUY IT !

It's a funny thing being a Pet Shop Boys fan you spend years waiting for the next album and when it finally comes along its always exactly what you were hoping it would be.
In this case its futuristic, fresh, and yes the best PSB album in ages. Produced by Craig Armstrong (Romeo and Juliet Score), Rollo (famous for his work with Faithless), Club DJ David Morales and the boys themselves, the album delivers a fresh perspective to the PSB sound. From the trance-like Euphoria of "For Your Own Good" to the sheer disco of "New York City Boy" With an elegance of using strings "In a non bombastic way" on tracks like "You Only Tell Me You Love Me When Your Drunk".
If you liked the singles you should buy this album, if you're a fan you already have it so why are reading this review?

HALL OF FAMEon 3 April 2006
...buy this album. The Pet Shop Boys have roared back with a vengeance, after a so-so showing with their last album, _Bilingual_, which took the running joke of a trip to Spain a bit too far I think. This album, backed up by their first tour to include USA dates in half a decade, is sharp, clean, fun, witty, poppy, dance-filled -- all the things the PSB are known and loved for. I've collected almost every disk they've ever put out -- this one ranks up there with 'Actually' and 'Behaviour' as the trinity of the best. What a shame that MTV won't show their videos, being dominated by rap groups or boy bands. The Pet Shop Boys are most definitely 'out' now, too -- no surprise to those of us who have been avid fans for (gulp!, could it be?!) a decade and a half since their first singles came out under the tutelage of Bobby O., but perhaps a reason why in the USA they have become more of a cult-following band rather than a generally popular one. Even their old number one singles don't seem to get much air time any longer. Oh well, that just makes it all so much nicer for those of us who have discovered their enduring talent.
I guess the rest are just 'In Denial' ??
Get this album, read the lyrics as you listen to them, contemplate their meaning and tap your toes. Good fun all around.
The videos to I don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore and New York City Boy are available on the single releases which accompany this album. These are interesting and innovative, as are many things PSB.
The music is varied but consistent through the album. In Denial, with guest artist Kylie Minogue (not well known to American audiences since the mid-80s, but still popular in Europe and Asia), is an interesting psychological song, with so many layers of meaning (given the proclivities of the PSB) that it ends up being quite dazzling. The simple strands and disappointment in You only tell me you love me when you're drunk are interesting, strangely dance-able while being introspective and darker.
Backed up by a world tour, Nightlife has become a well-received if not major seller throughtout the world. Even as Neil Tennant approaches the age of 50, he shows no signs of slowing, and, unlike much of the pop-py music around today, the lyrics and strains that Tennant and Lowe produce are not age-specific; one might gasp at the idea of a 60-year-old Brittany Spears doing anything, much less belting out Do that to me one more time; but the Pet Shop Boys can sing their songs without fear of physical betrayal for decades to come.
