a fine collection of the boys videos from the start of their career
9 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

definitely one of the best compilation of music videos. it's always a pleasant surprise to watch your favourite pop band or musical act progress from their early videos to the present where a lot of careful thought and imagination was put into making it. as it goes to say for the pet shop boys who have been around for more than two decades and show no signs of slowing down their career. while many viewed west end girls to be a one-hit wonder, this dynamic duo has continued to prove their critics wrong by churning out hit after hit and amazing full-length albums that have won them critical and international acclaim. chris and neil have also been pioneers in the fashion industry as well with their futuristic costumes and daring new looks for each video which represents a certain time in their musical careers. i especially liked the music videos shot and directed by famed photographer bruce weber who did being boring and i get along. beautifully shot in black and white. i also like how they get famous directors and artists involved in their projects such as derek jarman and sam taylor-wood to name a few. a true class act.
