Pet Shop Boys – Axis (2013)

Scroll down to content

It’s not cutting edge, but it does mean business. Axis, the album’s lead track, starts with a squelchy bass that sounds like a tribute to Giorgio Moroder (you know, that old guy Daft Punk like) and another nod, of sorts, to Kraftwerk, before turning into a turbo-charged version of Pet Shop Boys, 20 years ago, cutting loose in a Berlin basement. The track is marred somewhat by the recurrent mutter of “electric energy”, a fact of wonder only to people who are one generation away from having an outdoor lavatory. It is far more crass than much of the Pet Shop Boys’ output of recent years, and a great deal more fun. [Source]
