Coming almost three years after their excellent, unexpected, and infectious LP Electric's Super is the second album where the Pet Shop Boys call themselves "electronic purists," holing up in the studio with returning producer Stuart Price and a mess of PCs, drum machines, and synths.
The musical landscape is the same and still, it's not a sequel or a very proper follow-up. It feels confident, loose, and free like a swaggering epilogue, like the smaller Quantum of Solace following the epic Casino Royale. A healthy dose of classic spite fuels "Twenty-Something" as electro bachata makes the song's Oscar Wilde outlook and Dorothy Parker attitude sound cool rather than curmudgeon.
Borrow some riffs from Kraftwerk 's "Trans Europe Express" and Moby 's "Go" while giving the style-less EDM kids a kick during the great "Inner Sanctum" and this sounds like Electric once again, but Super ventures into B-side territory with the brilliant instrumental "Pazzo! Still, PSB B-sides are larks and experiments of the highest order, so while Super scores as high as the crossover-ish Electricit's built more for the fan who puts "Paninaro" at the top of Groovy - Pet Shop Boys - Super list, well ahead of "West End Girls.
