Pet Shop Boys: Introspective [Sep. 25th, 2001|12:39 am]
collating bones
Someday everyone will understand that this record is one of the peaks of 20th-century English-speaking culture... this, actually, is the new reissue, with 15 more tracks on it, justified singlehandedly by the inclusion of two more versions of "It's Alright." Plus their louche, savage remake of Brecht/Weill's "What Keeps Mankind Alive"? But the album itself--impeccable. Even the weird little house/rap interpolation in the Willie-via-Elvis cover is wonderful. Not a bad turn.
