http://www.thisisfakediy.co.uk/articles ... -electric/ - another 8/10 ;)

"If this is the summer of disco then the Pet Shop Boys are the kings. Hats off to them."
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

electric is currently sitting at an impressive 91 on metacritic

though i expect that will level off in the 80s once more reviews are added . . .

"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."

Not a press review but not sure where else to place this:

Quite an interesting brain dump of a fan's first listen ...
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

can't they get the same amount of coverage in a less crappy broadsheet? But still, thanks for the link ; )
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

+ http://www.guyspy.com/disco-jive-pet-sh ... -electric/ (was mentioned earlier on forum)
+ http://thequietus.com/articles/12382-pe ... ric-review (see above; should be classified as review?)
+ http://petshopboys.co.uk/pettexts/4154 (some missing reviews listed)

Probably, first Russian review of "Electric" (no rating, but album is very praised. Writed by musical journalist who is also member of synth-duo that supported New Order on their recent Russian concert, so it's not surprising.):
