REVIEWS
Average points: 4.55 (Reviews: 22)
*****
ELYSIUM war nur ein Versehen - Neil und Chris sind noch nicht in Rente gegangen - umso heftiger schlagen sie jetzt mit ELECTRIC auf dem Dancefloor ein - ja das läßt mein Herz für sie wieder beben - geradlinige Dance-Popper wie VOCAL, ein paar Experimente, Erinnerung an WEST END GILRS mit Feature Example, das klasse Bruce Springsteen Cover, Italo-Disco und Bobby O ... hier hat Stuart Price als Produzent ganze Arbeit geleistet - und man hört, es macht Neil und Chris wieder Spaß, die Pet Shop Boys zu sein ... it's in the MUSIC!
******
Happy Birthday, Neil!
*****
Ein hochmodernes Werk der elektronischen Musik mit starken 80er Akzenten. Für mich funktioniert das Album als Gesamtkunstwerk.

Wow! Welcome back, PSB! Endlich wieder ein Album alter Güte.
*****
Sehr stark! Geil die wenigen Albumtracks alle im Maxi-Gewand so wie in den 80ern. Kein Track fällt ab. 5+

Highlights: Love Is A Bourgois Construct / Shouting In The Evening / Thursday
****
Gewohnt solide Kost der Pet Shop Boys, manchmal etwas gar überfrachtet mit Keyboardteppichen. Mit dem Opener "Axis" vermögen PSB immer noch Akzente in der aktuellen Popszene zu setzen - dieser Track fährt ein!! Das Bruce Springsteen Cover "Last to die" haben die beiden perfekt zu ihrem charakteristischen Synthie-Pop Sound umfunktioniert. "Love Is A Bourgeois" will ein neues "Go West" sein, kommt aber leider nicht über ein etwas nerviges Disco-Gestampfe raus.

Dito, der Opener ist wirklich geil. Der Rest gibt mir gar nix.
*****
gut
******
kopen kopen kopen die cd of nog beter de LP.
****
Respekt vor diesem Album, das mal wieder ganz andere Seiten aufschlägt.
Der eine oder andere Titel enthält mir dann zu viel Computer und zu wenig Song und zu wenig Neil-Vocals.
***
Axis ist spitze, der zweite Track schlägt nochmal in dieselbe Richtung und auch Fluorescent ist ein feiner Song.

Der Rest ist mir schlichtweg zu langweilig und vor allem zu overproduced, um überzeugen zu können.

Auffallend ist das besonders bei dem Song Love Is A Bourgeois Construct. Die Masse an Referenzen an die eigene musikalische Vergangenheit verkraftet das Werk einfach nicht. Spätestens beim Zitat des von mir verhaßten Go West, ist jegliche Symphatie verflogen.

Fazit: Tenant und Lowe schafften es früher schon nicht, mich auf Albumlänge zu überzeugen. Wieso sollten sie es inzwischen hinbekommen? ;)
******
sehe es wie Sacred, auch die Highlights betreffend :-)

Ik moest wennen maar het is genieten.

Qua populariteit ook 1 van hun meest succesvolste albums.

Twijfelaars, geef het een kans!
****
Synthpop / Disco. Aufgerundete 4* für dieses Album der PSB aus 2013.

Am besten gefallen mir hierauf:
Axis
Thursday (feat. Example)


Sie standen damit Ende Juli 2013 auf #3 in den britischen Albumcharts.
****
Insgesamt enttäuschendes Album, obwohl ich mich so darauf gefreut habe.

Einzig "Love is a Bourgeois Construct" ist herausragend und daher noch 4 Sterne.
**
Die Pet Shop Boys sind doch echt verrückt !

Es gibt sogar eine Seite im Internet, wo diverse Fehler der Jungs schrittweise aufgezeigt werden, bzw. wie sie Karriere-Suizid in den USA begangen haben

Und dies setzen sie auch in Europa fort.

Die Pet Shop Boys sind eine erfolgreiche mainstream-Band, die über 50 Millionen Alben verkauft haben und bis weit in die 2000er Hits hatten (zuletzt mit LOVE ETC.)

und nun kamen sie 2013 mit einem schrecklichen sperrigen Dance-Album, das wirklich grottenschlecht ist.

Man hört kaum die Stimme des Sängers, die Songs klingen total RETRO und vor allem nach der introspective Ära.

Sogar die introspective zusatz-CD FURTHER LISTENING hat deutlich bessere Songs als dieses Album.

Ein Album voller Füller, lediglich BOLSHY und LOVE IS A .. klingen einigermassen ok
****
Für mich eine leichte Steigerung zu "Elysium", trotzdem auch wieder nix, was mich wirklich packt.
****
Für mich eher eine positive Überraschung, back to the 80's
roots, sozusagen....jedenfalls wesentlich besser als das
meiste, was sie in den 90er Jahren produziert haben.

1-2 (ganz) schwache Nummern verhindern leider die
ansonsten sichere 5.

4 ++

Ich würde es als hochmoderner Elektro-Schrott bezeichnen.
