This week finally brought the US release of the latest Pet Shop Boys' LP Fundamental. Produced by Trevor Horn, it is all that a PSB album should be - shiny, witty, camp and full of biting commentary. I picked myself up the 2CD set which comes with a second disc called Fundamentalism. It features a couple of new songs and a bunch of remixes from Richard X, Trentemøller, Michael Mayer, Dettinger, Alter Ego, Melnyk and Stuart Crichton. My fave tune right away is Minimal (which I posted a few weeks ago as part of a funky Friday fourpack) which is a blissed electro pop song in the style of New Order. From the remix disc here is Minimal (Lobe Remix). Lobe makes it even more blissed out and shimmery. Very nice and very catchy. Not too sure about the Elton John collabo on In Private though...
