The new Pet Shop Boys album

It is excellent. I really didn't think they still had it in them.

Love it too

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 107/31/2013

There isn't a single weak track. A joy, start to finish.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 207/31/2013

Is there going to be a deluxe version of this one like most of their other albums? I don't want to buy it twice.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 308/01/2013

It really is excellent. The old boys still got it.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 408/01/2013

I just listened to the whole album and it's fantastic. I have not payed too much attention to them since Very and this one really compares to thier early stuff.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 508/01/2013

Their

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 608/01/2013

I can't listen to Neil Tennant's voice.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 708/01/2013

It's great. Best dance music I've heard in a long time.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 808/01/2013

I don't like it. Dull, boring disco. Yawn.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 908/01/2013

I saw them do an acoustic set about ten years ago, I thought it would be bad as they are essentially an electro band but they were fantastic. The new one holds up to older material, they've still got it.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1008/01/2013

It's very good. The tracks would have been B-sides 15-20 years ago, but I still like it a lot.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1108/01/2013

"Inside a Dream" is a a really stellar track... There is always one and this is the one I want to hear unexpectedly in a club

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1208/01/2013

Yes, it's really great. A real return to their fine form. I wasn't to thrilled with their last album.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1308/01/2013

I could live without Last To Die on it. A good song but I don't see the point of covering it In such a straightforward manner. The rest is excellent. Probably my favorite album of the year, so far. This is what Daft Punk were trying to do and never quite pulled it off.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1408/01/2013

Bolshy Bolshy Bolshy oh ....

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1508/01/2013

I have been listening to it repeatedly all week. It's the best thing they've released in 20 years.

I thought the Daft Punk album was okay but a bit overrated.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1608/03/2013

Dull, soulless dance music! Bit-bit-bit, bop-bop-bop. Techno, techno, bloody TECHNO, darling!

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1708/03/2013

I didn't like it, and I usually love when they go more dancey.

I think Stuart Price is getting to be a bit of a hack. "Bolshy" is funny, but I actually burst out laughing to the pretentiousness of "Love is a Bourgeois Construct". The "Vocal" remix by Flashmob is much better than the album cut.

Elysium was boring. This is just derivative.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1808/03/2013

OK, you bitches owe me.

I bought this just based on your raves.

It's really bad. The music is dated. And the lyrics are either boring, nonexistent or silly/pretentious (I, too, laughed at "bourgeois").

And I thought Yes was a pretty good CD.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 1908/03/2013

R19, I don't think you get it.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2008/03/2013

Hmmm, R19, I think you should give it another chance.

The album really takes off with the song I linked beloew.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2108/03/2013

This is my favorite song on the new album. That break that starts at 2:15 sounds straight off of "Please."

It's an interesting record in that it doesn't really sound like any other one of their albums, but there are very obvious nods to various points in their career throughout it.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2208/03/2013

R20: That's right. It's so sophisticated, it went right over my head.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2308/03/2013

I went on a 5 km run this afternoon and listened to it. Great running soundtrack!

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2408/05/2013

An amazing album, and "Vocal" is so euphoric it just takes you to church.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2508/05/2013

I wish I liked this album more. PSB has been one of my favorite pop groups since they first came out in the '80's but more and more they seem to be retreading most of the same sounds and ideas since the mid 1990's. The best song on this album is the Springsteen cover "The Last to Die". Or, maybe I just changed and need something more musically sophisticated to listen to.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2608/05/2013

These guys are the most consistent pop group working today. They may not change with fashion, but keep pumping out absolute quality every time. There's always something joyous about what they do.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2708/05/2013

Dated? Given that most crap that's infesting the radio sounds like warmed over rehash of the 80s samples with some rent-a-rapper barking over it, this album sounds super contemporary in comparison. It is basically a cross cut through dance music from the early 80s (Axis) to this date (Shouting in the Evening), given a modern polish. Thursday is something that in a just world would be a chart topper for a month, and the song I have wanted them to make since late 80s.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2808/05/2013

Thursday is my favorite on the album. Great song.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 2908/05/2013

I agree. Thursday rules.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 3008/05/2013

They should do another album with Dusty Springfield.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 3108/05/2013

That would be great, R31, except Dusty is dead.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 3208/05/2013

What R2 said. Every track is excellent.

The Vocal remixes are out now too, BTW.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 3308/05/2013

Ok, Roisin Murphy, then.

by the new OMD is really good, tooreply 3408/05/2013

I just re-listened to the whole album and it's wonderful. There is so much shit pop music now, it's just good to hear something like the Pet Shop Boys, who know how to make quality stuff. I know the PSB isn't to everyone's taste, but I've always loved them.
