Electric - Pet Shop Boys

Much to my embarrassment, I only recently discovered that former favourites the Pet Shop Boys actually released an album two years ago.

As it turns out - and as I must confess I did expect, seeing that I hadn't heard or read a word about it... - the album is unfortunately rather forgettable.

Their distinctive characteristics are still there : A compact sound mat and a pumping, electronic beat which lend themselves quite well both to dancing and other physical activities (unless you are planning on having sex, in which case Marvin Gaye or Prince are still safer bets). 
The melodies, however, are missing, and it all remains sadly featureless.
