      Very to me is the quintessential Pet Shop Boys album that captures them at the peak of their songwriting capabilities. There isn't a dud in this collection of spankingly gorgeous pop tunes that are dripping with Neil Tennent's trademark irony and thought provoking lyrics. Its hard to pick out stand out tracks as each one rewards the listener on so many different levels, but personal favourites include 'One and One make Five', 'One in a Million' and the awesome single 'Can you forgive Her?' The boys haven't lost their sense of humor either which is especially evident on the ultra-camp romp through a cover version of 'Go West'. This is definitely the most complete Pet Shop Boys album ever and guarentees them immortality in any critic's Pop classics Hall of Fame.

        In my opinion, this is by far the best of the series of PSB albums. If you are going to buy this CD, look out for one of the original versions of it, as when it was first released, it came in an orange plastic box, which would not look out of place in a Lego kit. The newer version with the blue surround is simply not the same. Also, being a big PSB fan, I bought this CD on the day of release, and was lucky enough to get one of the Limited Edition versions, which was packaged in a plastic fold-out "bubble" wallet with a bonus CD, "Relentless", which has 6 totally excellent tracks, unavailable elsewhere. So, you have been warned - before purchasing, make sure it's one of the old CD's. The CD kicks off with the brilliant "Can You Forgive Her?" - the only song in the world to tie in the words "cricket pavillion and bicycle shed" in one sentence!. This is hotly followed by "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing". The tempo then slows, with "Liberation", "A Different Point of View" and "Dreaming of the Queen". Just when you thought it was safe, along comes "Yesterday When I Was Mad!", the following tracks simply fly by, and should, in my opinion, be much longer versions, as all the tracks are pure listening pleasure: "The Theatre", "One and One Make Five",(simple but effective), "To Speak Is A Sin" and "Young Offender". Finally, "One In A Million" leads incredibly welcomingly to the final crescendo of the now popular gay anthem "Go West!", which leaves you actually worn out from listening! There is a "hidden" track on the CD, but that does disappoint, it's easier to press the eject button at this point! In summary, well worth a tenner of anyones money, but make sure it's an old-style "Lego" effect box!
