Pet Shop Boys - Alternative

About Alternative by Pet Shop Boys Album

Alternative is a compilation album by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was first released in 1995. Alternative is a 2-disc set, consisting of 30 B-sides in chronological order. The title Alternative was a last-minute change from the title that had been long saved for such an album, Besides, but that title was taken by American rock band Sugar, who released their own B-sides compilation two months prior. Alternative only really gained popularity among devoted fans of Pet Shop Boys with the exception of the UK, where it entered the charts at #2. A remake of the original 7-inch "Paninaro" entitled "Paninaro '95" was released as a single (which was featured in the later PopArt set) to promote the 2-disc compilation. The cover of Alternative features photographs of Tennant and Lowe in fencing masks. The first copies of the CD have a lenticular image on the cover which shifts between the two photographs. Neil Tennant admitted in a radio interview with Absolute Radio that a second B-side album may be released in 2010. This materialised on 11 November 2011 when the duo announced through Varsity that they would release another B-sides album in February 2012 titled Format.

As a child I remember hearing West End Girls on the radio all the time in Minneapolis. I loved the lyrics. I was 9 at the time, and didn't own any music of my own. Later, in 1993, I officially "discovered" the Pet Shop Boys when I discovered their lego case album "Very" in a Kmart I worked at. I recalled they'd sang WEG, and bought both Discography and Very that same day. I fell in love. Immediately. Soon after I found the special edition "Very Relentless" and bought it. Within a year I owned all their albums. When Alternative came out, a collection of all their b-sides, I was already I die-hard fan. But nothing prepared me for how cool this album was. All their subversive and most creative music lies in their b-sides. I remember listening to this in bed with my headset, never falling asleep. Every track is perfect, but the highlight for me is the dance floor grinder "Euroboy". It sounds like something out of some sci-fi adventure film. I'm hoping their american record label releases their 2011 b-side collection, 'Format' one day. Its also amazing.
