Pet Shop Boys - Actually

Of all 80's synthpop bands, Pet Shop Boys have the sharpest wit and provide the most biting social commentary. Actually tosses out more than a few barbs, and still manages to be a thoroughly enjoyable album. I can't stop loving "Shopping" and yet I am fully aware of its strong political statements. This album is as good an example as any if you want to show how Pet Shop Boys have managed to be artistically true, socially conscious, and still generally popular.
