We’re revisiting Pet Shop Boys’ 1988 LP, Introspective in honour of the band’s co-founder, Chris Lowe who celebrates his 62nd birthday this week.

'Introspective'

Released on the heels of their highly successful Actually’, Pet Shop Boys' Introspective is a rather unusual entry in their discography. Most dance musicians spin their album cuts into much longer remixes - but Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe aren't like most dance musicians; the six tracks here (including hypnotic mixes of PSB favourites Always On My Mind and It's Alright) have already been extended to 12” durations. The two songs written specifically for the collection, the Trevor Horn-produced opener Left to My Own Devices and Domino Dancing, show the U.K. synth-pop duo moving confidently into elaborate orchestration. Introspective has become a fan favourite as well as one of Pet Shop Boys' best sellers, and we'll give it another spin now to wish Lowe a happy birthday this week (October 4th).

Let’s revisit those dancefloor hits below!
