PET SHOP BOYS Released Their Feel Good Dance Pop Album ‘VERY’ 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

26 September 2018


Album: VERY – the duo’s fifth LP

Released: 27 September 1993 – 25 years ago

ALL MUSIC review: “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.”
– Score: 4.5/5

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Pet Shop Boys were/are experts in feel-good dance
pop humdingers as proven cleary, once more, on this very joyful longplayer.
