Like many of you, we saw the tracklist for the latest Pet Shop Boys 'Disco' album and thought it was a joke.


We've got it on in the office at the moment and, do you know what? It's really good. If one puts aside one's com­pleteist tend­en­cies and accepts 'Disco 4' as a col­lec­tion of dance music which sounds like pop music and pop music which sounds like dance music — eight tracks which work well on their own terms and next to each other — it's a good listen.

Like most albums we suppose it depends on whether you like the songs on it (a con­tro­ver­sial view, but one we think stands up to scrutiny) but, looking at the Popjustice iTunes library, all eight of the songs already have a '*****' rating. Which we suppose makes it a 5/5 album.

So there you go.
