ELYSIUM (2017 REMASTERED VERSION)
After going electro with producer Xenomania on their 2009 effort Yes, the Pet Shop Boys return to a more elaborate pop sound on Elysium. Produced by Kanye West affiliate Andrew Dawson, this 2012 release was previewed by "Winner," an uplifting, slowly building pop anthem that's perfect for this year's Olympics, which just happens to be held in the Boys' hometown of London. Listen for a reaction to critics on the self-referencing "Your Early Stuff," but loyal fans who love it when PSB go over-the-top can jump right to the exquisitely titled closer, "Requiem in Denim and Leopardskin."
