Well Behaviour is without a doubt the most mellow and sombre album they ever recorded, but it is regarded in pretty much every PSB fans' top 2 albums of theirs, and while it lacks a "West End Girls" type of immediate smash hit, the whole album really grows on you with repeated listens.crazycrazy wrote:Happy belated birthday firstly secondly I downloaded their album "Behaviour" in preparation to listen for my review thread so I'll post my thoughts on that one in here when it's time!

http://idolator.com/6242782/andrew-daws ... -interviewIt was really exciting for me. I got an email one day out of the blue from their manager that was like, “Would you like to talk to Neil [Tennant] and Chris [Lowe] about working on their next album?” I was like, hell, yeah — I would love to talk to Neil and Chris about working on their next album! They’re so talented. The breadth of their career has been phenomenal. They’re great at reinventing themselves and keeping true to their core sound. So Neil and Chris and I started talking on the phone. They sent me some demos of songs that they had been recording over the past year. Over our phone conversations, they were like, “We want to make a record in Los Angeles.” So they ended up moving out here for the recording process, and renting a place, and we’re making their first L.A. record. They’ve never done a record in Los Angeles before. They wanted to be around that thing, and get that classic L.A. sound — the L.A. players and all that stuff.
The first day we were jumping in right away – let’s pull this, let’s work on that — especially because this record has a very tight time frame for finishing. We’ve had to make use of every day. They’re in the studio about five days a week, then I end up staying on weekends to finish and catch up on stuff and get stuff ready for the next week. But this is their 11th original album. They’ve earned the right to take weekends off! It’s been a really good process. They both have incredible ideas. Neil will interject something and we’ll try it out and it’s like, wow, that’s a really great idea. Same thing with Chris — he’ll be like, “Well, what if we tried that?” We’ll pop it in and, oh, that was perfect. They have so much experience doing records. I’ve definitely learned a few tricks from them on making records, too.
It’s definitely a collaborative process. I have a way that I like to do things and the way that I approach and hear things, and the sounds that I’ll choose. And they have the ideas of what they want to do. It’s a really good working environment where everybody’s been pretty much on fire with their ideas. The stuff that everybody’s come up with has been really, really good.
We are pleased to announce that Pet Shop Boys will be headlining the Afisha Picnic Festival 2012 in Moscow, Russia, on July 21st. This will be the full Pandemonium tour production for (probably) the last time as a new Pet Shop Boys tour is planned for early next year with a completely new production.

http://idolator.com/6603591/pet-shop-bo ... short-filmPop maestros Pet Shop Boys have announced that the title of their 11th studio album will be Elysium (due in September). The LP, the UK duo’s 11th, was produced earlier this year in Los Angeles by Grammy winner Andrew Dawson. “They’ve never done a record in Los Angeles before,” Dawson, who’s also worked with Kanye West and fun., told us in April. “They wanted to be around that thing, and get that classic L.A. sound — the L.A. players and all that stuff.”
True to that statement, the Boys have released a short film for upcoming album track “Invisible” (watch above), which was directed by Los Angeles artist/film-maker Brian Bress. The duo’s official site notes, “Like several tracks on Elysium, ‘Invisible’ features backing vocals by singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy and veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters whose long singing career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele.”
“Invisible” hasn’t been declared an official single by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. Rather, their site states the track was unveiled “to give an idea of the album’s sound.”
“Look at me, the absentee, disappearing finally / goodbye / is it magic or the truth? / strange psychology or justified by the end of youth,” Tennant sings atop the moody, lush synth ballad.
The lyrics come dangerously close to being a metaphor for Pet Shop Boys’ own perception of themselves within the grand scheme of pop — and we say “dangerously” because, really, the idea of them calling it quits scares us to death! Let’s hope, for the sake of music itself, that’s not the case.

Not a bad track, though.
