Yes, it's their best.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Behaviour (Audio CD)
Well, I know everyone says this is their best album, but it is. They wouldn't like me for saying it but it's more rock than disco. Only two of the tracks attempt to raise the bpm to dance levels; amazing when you consider the climate into which it was released and the enthusiasm they have shown ever since for having everything remixed by next week's DJ. Being Boring is beautiful and heartbreaking for those of us who lived it but although now all PSB fans say it's their favourite it struggled to make the top 20 at the time. In This Must Be The Place Tennant is dreaming about being back at school and having to go through the horror of it all again. Haunting, if you, like me, regularly dream that you are about to sit your 'A' levels without having read the books, again. The subject matter is hardly your usual pop album: To Face The Truth and Jealousy are about someone lying at home in bed coming to terms with the fact that their partner is out shagging someone else, Only The Wind and The End of the World are about a fight between two lovers, My October Symphony concerns the problems faced by Russian composers as a result of the political turmoil of the twentieth century and the hilarious So Hard deals with unfaithful partners who secretly smoke. Oh, and Nervously is probably their first openly gay lovesong. If you don't own a copy of this, you don't like pop music.
