Pet Shop Boys - Disco 3
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Pet Shop Boys - Disco 3They’ve dabbled in Latin music, remakes of The Village People—even a gay musical on London’s West End. But Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe know their bread is buttered in dance clubs. On their latest, they’ve enlisted remixers to rework such early tracks as “If Looks Could Kill” and “Try It (I’m in love with a married man).” While the album does feature new offerings like the dreamy “Somebody Else’s Business,” gone are the deadpan lyrics that made the Boys such a clever pop phenomenon.
