Pet Shop Boys - Fundamental

Pet Shop Boys almost always have good album covers, and Fundamental is no exception. It's probably their most troubled and introspective album, so it's fitting that Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe -- dressed in black and cloaked in the darkness at the right side of the cover -- are only slightly illuminated by the artificial harshness of a white neon light.

Unfortunately, the cover is the best part of the album. You can read my somewhat scathing review of the music at Pratt Songs. </shameless plug>

From a distance you're like, oh, yipee, another fundamental "nothingness" commentary, but him poking of the black makes it quite cool. I only have Please from these guys since "West End Girls" is pretty infectious. Bob will remember when we saw Government Issue and Stabb came out and said "Good evening, we're The Pet Shop Boys!" Good times.
