Pet Shop Boys “Electric”

A mere 10 months after the decidedly mellow autumnal feel of “Elysium” (considered average in some quarters) we have “Electric” on our hands – and a more different proposition/beast you couldn’t get. As promised (by Tennant and Lowe) – this is a banging dance affair. And it is completely wonderful. Nine tracks of throbbing, handbags at dawn, pumping disco. It opens spectacularly with “Axis” and continues to astound until it finishes poignantly with “Vocal”. What really hits the listener is how many of these tracks are really very good (I was going to list them, but there are really too many). We are talking “Discography” quality. So, respect to Stuart Price for bringing-out the best in them and to Pet Shop Boys themselves for delivering a stunning album number 12. 9/10
