Could chart well on the physical only chart but the original re-issues from 2001 didn't do that well if memory serves me correctly? One or two made it top 100 and the rest didn't? I could look it up but can't be bothered!
I doubt very much these will make top 40 though but will see well enough for PSB to make a quid or two!
Well said, no chance at all for a top100 placement
Are you serious !
Top 40 is certain.

Not sure whether this is a good placement or not. The drop off from midweeks just shows the usual fan-led front-loaded purchasing pattern.

Poor Fundamental ... Damn the Bee-gees and Oasis for sneaking above it! 😆

Pretty much reflects the quality of the records imho. Nightlife has always been a great cohesive (themed) album (I prefer them being 'dark') and has aged pretty well in spite of it being slagged off here by most people as it seems. Release introduced a new era and period and marked the change in direction long overdue at its particular point in time. Also, it produced an interesting picuture of the Pet Shop Boys though it's been all strategy, of course. And it's got such a warm sound and songs like Always, I didn't get..., Sexy Northerner, as well as the incredibly genious Between Two Islands. It's the era where they produced some of their greatest b-sides. The quality is top notch (not having D3 included). Fundamental, on the other hand, already sounded terribly dated the moment it hit the street. Sure, there's few great songs on it as the songwriting's great (and I like Neil exploring political issues), but overall it's my least-favourite PSB record and I hardly manage to sit through the whole experience. It lacks greatness. You pretty much hear too many people and the big ego of TH involved. It's not 'their' record. And God knows what made them include the cringeworthy DW ballad on Fundamental. Sorry, but I'm not a fan. Doesn't matter, though. The press liked it, the majority of the fans seem to like it and it probably was accompanied by the last classic PSB tour concept as they then really moved on and learned how to put on an entertaining show. So ultimately everything's fine.

I think it reflects the fact that New York city boy is the only song from these records that the general public knows.

Well, it's an interesting point that you mention. I attended three PSB shows within the last twelve months and the performance of New York city boy has always been the moment where the crowd seemed to be totally ignorant. Nothing really happened. People seemed to have forgotten about it. So I'm not really sure that's why Nightlife is the highest charting record of these three. ;)

Well, only 11 sales separate Nighlife from Release and 149 sales from Fundamental, so I really don't think you can make that analysis. But it's a theory.

True. I don't consider this to be a scientific analysis, though. ;) It's just a personal reflection or commentary based on personal taste. :)

Correct. They had their last Radio 1 single during this time therefore it's the last time the great enlightened British pubic were informed it was OK to still like them.
