Title - 'Disco 3' (Sanctuary)
Artist - Pet Shop Boys
As a Pet Shop Boy fan, I still worry every time a new album comes out by these boys. With the release of Disco 3 I was worried that it would be nothing but remixes, remixes, remixes. It is SO much more than that. There are some songs on here that I doubt any singer could try and match. When the album first starts out, it begins with a great song obviously put together by Chris Lowe, the group's electronic expert and keyboard artist. Chris is not a singer - but he's one hell of a composer. I like the fact that there is not much singing in these songs, but lots of profound statements that ring throughout such "It's very nice, but it's not what I'm used to." Some of these songs remind me of their Relentless import CD; an all music and no singing type of album. The music makes these boys, and Neil's voice brings it to another level. One would think that the song "Somebody Else's Business" might become a hit single soon. I applaud them especially for taking a sensitive subject such as "Try It (I'm in Love With a Married Man)" and stating the dangerous and beautiful feelings of such an illicit affair that happens to more people than society likes to acknowledge. With their music and lyrics, they once again stand out as the band that will never dull your senses. They continue to come out with new and original work, and music that we want to label our deepest and most intense emotions to. The album is not a disappointment at all; just another level that the Pet Shop Boys have dared to find.
