0631. Pet Shop Boys
Songs about first love, infidelity, jealousy, pop stars making fools
of themselves and (as in the case of Being Boring) reminiscense and
loss. Sadly, the goddamned house-piano shows up here and there again,
ruining the party.
The cycle of songs found on Very doesn't seem to be so pronounced here, and so the good songs are a bit more commonly occurring.
[Fun fact: one of the tracks that didn't make the cut was Miserablism, a satirical song about Morrissey, made even more fun by ex-Smiths' guitarrist Johnny Marr appearing on two tracks on the album. No love lost there, I guess.]
