Twenty years after their debut Please, Cubism proves the Pet Shop Boys were still going strong in 2006. Filmed at Mexico City's Auditorio Nacional, it's a spirited celebration of their minimalist dance-pop aesthetic. As Neil Tennant says in his introduction, "Welcome to an evening of electronic entertainment." (He'll proceed to sprinkle a few Spanish words throughout his spare stage patter.) The full line-up features a dark-suit and top hat-sporting Tennant on vocals, neon hoody and baseball cap-clad Chris Lowe on keyboards, two singers, and two dancers--half dressed like Tennant, half like Lowe (and all will change outfits a few times before the show is over). During the 103-minute program, the duo covers most of the highlights from their career, with the emphasis on material from Actually, Introspective, Very, and Fundamental. Notable omissions include the entirety of 1999's Nightlife and 1987 single "What Have I Done to Deserve This," but there's no way to do justice to the latter without Dusty Springfield. Longtime back-up singer Sylvia Mason-James, however, elevates several numbers, notably "Suburbia" and "West End Girls," while Ian Mckellen provides the pre-recorded intermission announcement. The ballads "Home & Dry" (with Tennant on acoustic guitar) and the Diane Warren-penned "Numb" slow the pace a bit, but this is otherwise an upbeat, up-tempo night of music. Extras include a mini-documentary, photo gallery, liner notes by band biographer Chris Heath (Pet Shop Boys, Literally), and amusingly self-effacing audio commentary from Tennant, Lowe, and director David Barnard. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

All I can say is that Neil and Chris still have it going on even after twenty plus years. I saw them three times on the Fundamental tour and nothing gets me going more than the electricity and excitement of seeing the boys live. That is until I watched the Cubism DVD. Neil's vocals are just as vibrant as ever. This isn't just a concert DVD. It's a musical event with the backing vocals of Andy Love, Nic Clows and Ms. Sylvia Mason James. The choreography of Hakeem Onibudo and the fantastic dancers, Nathan Holliday and Ivan "Swan" Blackstock are cool. Those guys rock! And of course the show wouldn't have been complete without the man behind the curtain, Pete Gleadall.

The sound quality on this DVD is fantastic in the DTS 5.1 Surround Sound or Dolby 5.1 which puts you right in the middle of the audience. The letterbox video is crisp and sharp. This is by far the best Pet Shop Boys video or maybe the best live concert I have seen. The extras on the disc are interviews and commentary about the boys from the fans and also Neil and Chris.

The songs they chose were quite balanced among the years. There are songs featured from their Fundamental album as well as what I would call Pet Shop Boys standards. There isn't a bad tune or a bad performance of any song. They are still quite the entertainers.

This is one concert DVD you will want to watch over and over.

PS. Hi Neil! ;o)

This DVD is amazing, I've seen and heard all PSB live DVDs and CDs and I think this is one of their best in terms of performance, track listing, arrangements. Here they are back to their classic synth pop trademark sound, very different from their "Concrete" live concert. Almost everything is great in this disc, however I feel the DTS track could had been better than it is, too much coming from L, R and center channels and lacking from the surrounds. But hey! still being an amazing show no matter what, one of the best live DVDs I've ever watched. 5 stars, highly recommended.

an extraordinarily satisfying piece of pop musical theater that gives the viewer a total feast for the senses. Turn out the artificial lights, light some candles and crank the volume!

This was bought on a whim while also buying The Pop Art DVD and this (The Cubism DVD) is by far a much more exciting video. The sound quality is so amazing, never would have thought it could be better than the original CDs. I watch/listen to this about once a week during my off time while driving a truck. Ok thats all.

This is the Pet Shop Boys on their Fundamental Tour in 2006 in Mexico. I saw them a couple months earlier in Minneapolis and it was the best concert I've ever been too. And I've seen Madonna in 2006 and 2004. Great songs, great performers, and I'm telling you - you should buy this if you are a fan of PSB..

I saw this concert in nyc at radio city music hall and was greatly suprised. I had not intensely followed the boys since the 90s and I fell in love with them all over again. the lighting, music, choreography and backup singers were incredible. The concept with the moving light cubes looked simple at first but really enhanced and benefited the performance. a must buy for any fan of 80s and 90s and now dance/pop/elelectronic music.

Format: DVD
The 1980s' most enduring pop act have always refused to slump into irrelevance, weathering the sneers of rock snobs who dismiss them as camp ironists. Despite recently embracing their old nemesis, the guitar, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe remain unapologetic champions of the joys of pop, allying thrumming club beats with timeless songwriting craft to make something moving and lasting out of the allegedly disposable.

If you are a PSB fan, as I have been since 1986, then this is a must have. I was at their concert in DC a month before this was filmed. A lot of their songs from Minimal are performed as well as such classics as "Heart", "It's a Sin", "West End Girls" and many more. Backed by Sylvia Mason James, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe give their fans what they ask for, good music and a good time.
