The art of pop,
This review is from: Pop Art: Pet Shop Boys - The Hits (Audio CD)
Not many artists genuinely need two whole CDs to fit their best songs on. The Beatles, Stones, Bowie, Elton John, Elvis and dare I say Pet Shop Boys?
There are no fillers here. Every song is a top twenty hit. Every song has received considerable airplay and is instantly recognisable to anyone who has listened to the radio over the last twenty years.
The monster hits from the 1980s and 1990s, West End Girls, It's A Sin, What Have I Done To Deserve This, Heart, Always On My Mind and Go West rub shoulders with recent hits Miracles and the wonderful Flamboyant. Other highlights are their masterwork Being Boring, the very funny Yesterday When I Was Mad, I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing and So Hard as well as the beautiful Rent and Liberation. I could go on, but I'd just end up listing every track.
Pop Art is a must-buy for anyone who likes pop music. It will make you want to dance, it will make you laugh and some of it could even make you cry.
