Nearly 25 years in and they're still better than pretty much anything/anyone else around at the moment.
I listened to Erasure's updated best of last week. Everything on the 2nd CD was bullshit. However, PSB's best of is near perfect, and the last album was impressive too.
Wish Radio 1 would acknowledge them, the ageist fuckers. Can't wait for the new album to leak.
but never really compared to Pet Shop Boys, whose greatest hits collections are pretty much the best things ever.
Radio 1 could never acknowledge them now! They're not some cool new 'underground' band that Jo Whiley can claim to have discovered and then Edith Bowman can shag.
but might be better if I hadn't had it forced down my ears three times a day for the last six weeks.
Still, I clicked the link and listened all the way through, so maybe it's not been entirely killed for me yet... And strangely, it sounds a lot better when I'm not at work ;-)
Fingers and Thumbs. Ace tune. But aye you're right about the rest.
and I can't wait for the album. There's a really good Gui Boratto remix out there.
I also feel obliged to diect to this:
A medly of songs to prove just how amazing Pet Shop Boys are (could have done without Lady Gaga, but that's just a minor glitch in an otherwise amazing performance).
they dont really hold up that well when compared to other 80's synth pop.could be the production but just seems to have not aged as well as ,say,depeche mode's early stuff
...and enjoyed their more well known hits for most of my youth without ever having ever listened to an album by them (bit like Erasure really). When my friend recommended Actually as one of his favorite albums, I bought the special edition. Since then I've got most of their stuff, and I think a lot of it is very good (but not quite as amazing as my friend has seemed to imply it would be).
I am more partial to 'the Mode' as it's intense and gothic and that tone suits me. However, I have to say 'Love Etc' sounds a lot better than the live performance I heard of the Mode's new track 'Wrong'.
Ironically, I was wrong. The Mode's new single is actually rather good.
very much enjoying the current PSBs single. It is ace.
some of the mixes are great too..
