About this item

Rolling Stone (10/31/96, p.70) - 3-1/2 Stars - Good/Excellent - "...The quintessential '80s act...have stuck to their guns and refused to defer to passing '90s fads. While their peers would have gone trip-hop by now, Lowe and Tennant have stayed true to their disco-pop sensibility..."
Spin (10/96, pp.131-132) - 8 - Very Good - "...Tennant may be too much the cynic to buy into pop platitudes, but he's also too much a realist to think ironic detachment can sustain life. So he remains fluent in both languages--and ends up with astonishingly eloquent songs."
Entertainment Weekly (9/6/96, p.76) - "The eighth album of slick-as-a-mirror-ball pop from this droll British duo relies as much on melody as rhythm or the Boys' trademark irony, making this a near-perfect album for converting discophobes to the pleasures of dance music..."
- Rating: B+
Q (10/96, p.160) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Where once there were gleaming surfaces, there are whistles, infectious percussion and sensual jazz chords straight from a cantina in Sao Paulo....a bold step for the Pet Shop Boys and, happily, it works almost unreservedly..."
Melody Maker (8/31/96, p.44) - "...'Why would intelligent English musicians want to concern themselves with impassioned Eurodisco?...' BILINGUAL has no place in any such dialogue. The duo's ability to soil a perfectly good disco stomper by dropping in The Chord Of Mourning is well-known to fans who bought the achingly autumnal BEHAVIOUR. They've honed it to a fine art here..."
NME (Magazine) (8/31/96, p.54) - 8 (out of 10) - "...they take us to a new setting...invested in some of the rhythmic knowledge of the South Americans they met on their '94 tour....Tennant's singing like a man who's reached a certain age and feels good/bad/guilty about it....seldom has their music sounded so rich..."
