PET SHOP BOYS

NIGHTLIFE HHH / RE­LEASE HHH / FUN­DA­MEN­TAL HHHH PARLOPHONE, OUT NOW

Q (UK) - - Q Review Reissues - NIALL DO­HERTY

Ten­nant and Lowe’s turn-of-the-mil­len­nium evo­lu­tion. This is the open­ing trio of al­bums in a run of Pet Shop Boys reis­sues. Nightlife, from 1999, has disco swag­ger that’s un­der­pinned by ur­ban alien­ation, while 2002’ ’s s Re­lease was low-k low-key and un­cer­tain. By 2006’ ’s s Fun­da­men­tal, they had a fire in their belly again, mix­ing po­lit­i­cal ire and lav­ish pro­duc­tion. It’s the ex­tras fans will find most ap­peal­ing, with an ar­ray of demos that peel away the so­phis­ti­cated sur­face.
