Pet Shop Boys

pet shop boys**** Nightlife (EMI) The Pet Shop Boys, Londoner duo Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, formed 18 years ago. Since the 1985 release of their smash single West End Girls — number one in eight countries — the Boys have enjoyed the success brought on by an unstoppable series of hits. While Nightlife is, delightfully, much like earlier Boy bestsellers, the duo has come up with some creative mixes for the album — country and western meets disco, hip hop meets Britpop and all topped off with a touch of glam. Lowe’s upbeat melodies, Tennant’s emotive texts, these are what Boys are made of.
