This is a good mindless three minutes of shaking it out on the dance floor. It’s not exactly hot evidence that the Pet Shop Boys’ new album is exactly what its name promises, but it is the kind of club kid escapism that never quite goes out of fashion. The Pet Shop Boys have always leavened their dance beats with emotional and social themes that would seem to be more at home on some emo indie record, but somehow it never brought the dance floor to a grinding halt; it just allowed their records to be more widely enjoyable. You could dance and mope to them. So in that regard, an instrumental dance track would seem to be a bit below them. But on an album that deals explicitly with the angst of aging out of the club scene, a nice light party track is really needed to lighten the mood. And whatever, it’s fun.
