Classic Pet Shop Boys - and that is a very good thing. Last album [last years more sombre 'Elysium'] was a little disappointing bar a few notable exceptions [Face Like That, and Leaving - both of which would fit well on 'Electric']. boldly opening with 'Axis', which is the very definition of a 80's electronica style rush of blood to the head. The pace is relentless throughout. 'Bolshy' sounds like it's lifted from 88's superb 'Introspective', and the other highlights are 'Thursday' which reminds me a little of a summery sort of 'West End Girls' with Chris intoning the days of the week in his inimitable style, before a rap and verse from Example brings things bang up to date. the melody is sublime and chorus infectious. fans of the 'Go West' side of Pet Shop Boys will love the epic 'Love Is A Bourgeois Construct' with it's thundering chorus and male voice choirs. 'Fluorescent' is a dark, brooding beast of a track, and their cover of Springsteen's 'The Last To Die' is more traditionally pop rock. Lyrically, it's as strong as ever. 'Electric' is a return to form for a duo 30 years in who rarely take their foot from the quality control peddle and keep standards in dance pop music incredibly high.

"Electric" by Pet Shop Boys is a satisfying song collection of electronica and synth pop type hits. There is something for many people on "Electric" and the musical style points to how the Pet Shop Boys are getting even better. "Axis", "Love Is A Bourgeois Construct","Flourescent", "The Last To Die", "Thursday" (feat. Example), and "Vocal" are among the phenomenal tracks included in "Electric". I have had the chance to watch their "Vocal" music video which is also superb. "Electric" by Pet Shop Boys is an excellent music feature for casual fans, diehard Pet Shop Boys fans, and/or those who enjoy elements of synth-pop and electronic music.Was this review helpful?
