Pitchfork wrote: “Like the Cure’s ‘Disintegration’ or Depeche Mode’s ‘Violator’,
the Pet Shop Boys’ fourth album transitioned their creators into the ’90s by both
refining and breaking from the past… Embracing disposable pop, they’ve created
lasting queer culture just as it was in danger of disappearing. They celebrate the
melancholia of being gay.”
– Full review here. Score: 8.5/10.

Neil Tennant: “We shouldn’t feel restricted by our sexuality,
and our sexuality doesn’t have to be a cultural choice.”

Chris Lowe: “We’d be nowhere without our looks.”

Turn Up The Volume: Actually, a Very Introspective Hotspot Nightlife album.
