So have the PSBs released anything good since 2001? I'm not being sarcastic, I genuinely don't know.

They had their career nadir in 2000-2001, almost everything since then has been good to great.

Strange to find the soundtrack to Closer To Heaven as a yardstick, but the answer is yes
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

Bizarre question.
Yes, that is all.

But somehow you know the year to put in your question. Why not 1993, 1990 or 1987 then?

Greetings,

I can understand the question. If I were a fairweather fan, I would have given up on Pet Shop Boys around that time.

As it was, around the time of Nightlife and Release I stopped importing the CD singles as soon as they were released, and tried instead to pick them up on special in bargain bins or online.

I still don't think I have the full set of Home And Dry singles, although the US 2CD edition of Release which I bought at the time left that largely redundant.

To reiterate the above answers, yes, things have been much better since then, although Super is a rather misleading title for their most recent album.

Retro. :)

They haven't been better right now. I think 2006's Fundamental album is one of their best albums and in 2013 they released another highlight in their career with Electric.

The least you could have done is brought a chocolate orange.
