Pet Shop Boys ‘Revolver’
on 25 September 2018
If ‘Please’ was the Pet Shop Boys Version of ‘Rubber Soul’ by The Beatles then this would be their ‘Revolver’... essentially part two of the first album, where Please could be read as following a storyline this continues the story complicates it and matures.
There’s not (just like the first album) a bad track on here. My interpretation of ‘the theme’ is where ‘Please’ was the story of two Gay Boys undivisible and their adventures looking for love, sex and money, who end the first album having decided to live together have in the meantime because of their narcissistic behaviour fallen out only here to reunite and stray into an even darker world inhabited by every sort of misfit, yuppie crook straight and gay, ending in where it began at a train station, looking for rent or the fair back home?
