My first blog post!
Pet Shop Boys has released a new album today! I was thrilled to see this while I was searching for new music earlier this morning, so I decided to give it a listen.
I’ve already had the chance to give the entire album two listens, and I am pleased with what I heard. Elysium is PSB’s newest studio album, with production help from Andrew Dawson. Consisting of twelve synthpop, mid-tempo tracks, it is clear that Pet Shop Boys are aware of their declining status in the music industry. This album adds nothing new to their extensive discography, however, this is one of their more sonically strong entries. I will need a few more listens before I post a comprehensive review, but my favourite tracks so far are Ego Music, Your Early Stuff, and Hold On.
