10. Pet Shop Boys- Please

Mark Morriss ‘

 If an album could sound like it was made out of fine bone china then this would be it. It’s hard to imagine how out of time and unique the Pet shop Boys were when they first emerged… staring, detached, aloof. Like a gay, male Bananarama. Minus one. (Not really).
The songwriting and skill displayed on this record were too good for the charts, weren’t they? Too good for mainstream consumption, surely? Not a bit of it. That they were so massive is one of those things that goes against the accepted way of things. And offers us all hope in a disappointing and predictable future world (now, I mean).
