So here's the new PSB single Love etc. PSB and Yello are my two most favourite groups, so while waiting for new Yello material, at least I can have my doze of synth pop from PSB.

Their next album Yes will be out on March 23rd. On iTunes you can hear 30 sec. samples of the songs on the album. Not that I've listened to, I don't want any spoilers:

Also, the PSB just received the lifetime achievement Brit Award. Here's the greatest hits medley and multimedia show they played at the Brits.

Heh, I came here to start a thread and lo and behold, it is already here. :P

This is my first PSB album and I'm loving it to death. My favorite song is All Over the World, the chorus and slow pace just never gets old for me. But all the songs are good really, they all have their unique message, atmosphere and of course melody (in fact Love Etc. and Beautiful People are complete opposites).

Btw, those who buy this album get access to the bonus section of PSB's website where we gain access to a short documentary on the production and a track-by-track commentary. I find it very fun to hear Neil's and Chris' take on their work while listening to the album.

Who could think that cлучайная the meeting in musical shop of London in 1981 of Nile Tennanta and Chris Law on happy coincidence of circumstances, will lead to a birth of new commercially successful project in the dance music world.

Pet Shop Boys are one of the most commercially successful and fruitful collectives of Great Britain: for last 20 years they had been let out more than 40 singles (from them 22 got in top to ten British charts), 9 studio albums (all of them reached 1—7 places in the British charts). For last 20 years it has been let out more than 40 singles from them 20 got on tops British a hit – parade, 9 studio albums, and also set of successful joint projects with other executors.

At Pet Shop Boys bright characteristic image which the group continues to cultivate already more than 20 years is built. In spite of the fact that texts of their songs traditionally narrate about human love and hatred, group creativity often call «an intellectual dance music» — thanks to paradoxical turns of plots of songs, unexpected inclusion of elements from different areas of culture.

I've seen PSB's a couple times live and it has always been great. I hope they come to US for this album cause I absolutely love it.
