A decade and a half down the line, and they still love the nightlife, still love to boogie, and still bring post-grad dialectic to the dance floor like nobody else. It's been quite a spell since Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe last breezed through these parts, but as evidenced by this hammy, wry, and subtly tangy set, the Pet Shop Boys are none the worse for wear. NIGHTLIFE is a bit truer to old-school disco convention than anything the Boys have done in the '90s, but there's nary a whiff of revivalism in the air on such biting tracks as the strobe-ready "New York City Boy" and the achingly sashaying "You Only Say You Love Me When You're Drunk." At this point in time, Tennant and Lowe could get by on nothing more than cleverly twisted beats -- of which this dozen-song set has plenty -- but that wouldn't be true to the Pet Shop Way, which calls for lush, unabashedly synthetic melodies and deadpan vocals that are so laid-back, they're practically laid-out. It's ever so elegantly wasted, and there's no velvet rope to worry what are you waiting for?
