All Music Guide - David Jeffries
When remixing, the Pet Shop Boys make any artist sound a lot like the Pet Shop Boys, which is probably why they get the job in the first place. The fourth volume of their sporadic Disco compilation series breaks from the usual plan -- outside artists remixing Pet Shop Boys songs -- and focuses on PSB as remixers.

The only big surprise is how often singer Neil Tennant adds his own vocals to the tracks, and in the case of David Bowie's "Hallo Spaceboy" he goes as far as to add new lyrics. This Bowie remix was almost impossible to obtain before and the cuts are all mixed together to create a nonstop journey, so at the very least Disco 4 offers hardcore fans more new experiences than previous volumes.

    Not worth buying

    Can't believe PSB let the Killers attempt to cover anything they've done. Sorry PSB, i love your music, but i'm not buying 4, after i loved 1, 2, & 3. I am disappointed but can't buy them all. Might download 1 or 2 songs, maybe.
