Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Because they work in a field that isn't usually taken seriously, the Pet Shop Boys are often ignored in the rock world. But make no mistake -- they are one of the most talented pop outfits working today, witty and melodic with a fine sense of flair. Very is one of their very best records, expertly weaving between the tongue-in-cheek humor of "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing," the quietly shocking "Can You Forgive Her?," and the bizarrely moving cover of the Village People's "Go West." Alternately happy and melancholy, Very is the Pet Shop Boys at their finest.

    One of their best

    This is one of the Pet Shop Boys' best albums--ranking with their previous album Behavior. If you want to get hooked on the Pet Shop Boys, this is a good place to start.
