Actually suffers from tracks that go on a little too long removing the original punch.

From DeusExMackia 01/25/2018 22:19
Solid pop fluff of the highest quality. The light and breezy production really makes those synths and sharp beats sing, but it's real talent is found in just how classy this well-made record is. Delivers absolute classics like What Have I Done To Deserve This? and It's A Sin, but isn't afraid to tackle tougher stuff such as on Kings Cross and It Could Happen Here, and it does it with enough sincerity to show that it isn't just trying to score points easily. An essential piece of the late-80s pop sound.

The best Pet shop boys album, full of good songs with, it's a sin, the obvious highlight. As always with PSB's, Neil Tennant's weak singing voice tarnishes the songs slightly, but that's only a minor complaint. A very good record.

Fantastic pop. Has more depth than many of their contemporaries.

For the most part, this album follows the tried-and-true cassette hit singles album format: dud/hit/dud/hit/dud, turn tape over, dud/hit/dud/hit/dud. Except that the last couple of "duds" are ok. And of course, the hits can be pretty spectacular pop masterpieces.

Another stately album of perfect pop from PSB from when they could do no wrong. By no means lightweight the devastation AIDS leaves behind is tackled on 'It couldn't happen here'.
