Biography

1981 - August
On August 19th, Neil and Chris meet by chance in an electronics shop on the Kings Road. Realizing they have a common interest in dance music, they begin to write together. Initially they call themselves West End; later they come up with the name Pet Shop Boys, a name derived from some friends who work in a pet shop in Ealing. "We thought it sounded like an English rap ... Read more in Amazon's Pet Shop Boys Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 collection from the British duo including one new track: 'Together'. The Pet Shop Boys are one of the most commercially and critically acclaimed bands of the past 25 years. They have achieved eight platinum, two gold and four silver albums in the UK alone. This collection brings together 19 of their biggest hits, from the very first ('West End Girls') in 1985. Their songs are witty and clever, sometimes pretentious, but completely danceable and brilliant. They transcend the boundaries and appeal to all age ranges from the oldies to the youngsters.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the best from the PSB December 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this just to be able to have the dvd really. Love all the music of course, but I've already got all of it on other discs (except the one new song). Love the concert on the dvd - just a whole lot of fun. I would however say that this really only appeals to die hard fans as there isn't much new material. (Only 1 song).

4.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately, an excellent "Best Of" January 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The dramatically titled "Ultimate" does live up to its name and succeeds very well in encapsulating the PSB's "hits (and misses)" over the past 25 years or so.

One of the hardest things to get right in a "Best of" to to create an exciting and engaging audio journey for the listener rather than simply have hit after hit which may not mesh too well.

Ultimate is a real pleasure to simply put on, say in the car (recently driving from Sydney to Melbourne, 900km it ran through 3 times with me happily singing along before I switched to Depeche Mode) or while Im preparing dinner with a glass of South Australian Shiraz or Rose. The point being that the selection of tracks works really well as an audio-collection and as a representation of commercial and artistic success.

The collection of 19 tracks is skewed towards PSB's first three albums with 2-3 tracks from each. The PSB's last 4 albums only score 1 track from each. Oh well, they are hardly going to include "Numb" over "Heart".

Of course everyone will grumble about why such and such a track wasn't included and why such and such was included - (Mine: "Before" over "Bilingual"?).

But hey, 3 generations of my family love "West End Girls", "Always on my Mind", "Go West", "Miracles" and they are all obviously included.

The new track "Together" is a pleasing slice of euro-disco.

For Fans..the DVD contains a seemingly endless number of appearances of PSB on Top of the Pops and the Pandemonium Concert at Glastonbury.

Ultimately, this a superb "Best of" and that is all it aims to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Any PSB Fan March 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This two disc set is a Must Have for any PSB fan. You probably already have all the content on Disc 1, but Disc 2 is chock full of lots of television appearances and a full length concert! One note: this disc is a DVD encoded for Europe (PAL). If you don't have one already, you'll want to order a region-free player (you can get some great ones right here on Amazon).

5.0 out of 5 stars Jubilant and Straightforward July 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Ultimate Pet Shop Boys" by the Pet Shop Boys is a fascinating organized set highlighting some of the hits that represent their sound. My two personal favorites from this compilation are "Miracles" and "Together". At the time of this writing, I have not yet seen the "Miracles" video but intend to do so. However, I have seen the "Together" video and feel that it fits perfectly with the song. "West End Girls","It's A Sin", "What Have I Done to Deserve This", "Always On My Mind", "Heart", "Se A Vida E (That's The Way Life Is)" and "Love Etc" are some of the catchy musical tracks on this cd. "Ultimate Pet Shop Boys" by the Pet Shop Boys is a great selection for those who enjoy electronica, synth pop, and/or candid love songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate factor lies in the DVD June 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The price is worth it for the DVD alone. It comes with their numerous television performances and a kick ass concert at Glastonbury. What a revelation it was to watch big burly men bobbing to the electro pop of the PSBs. I was kind of expecting the LBGT crowd that throng Kylie's shows.

Those who have the earlier hits collection such as Discography and POPART should take the Ultimate CD as a bonus disc.

A great package and I find myself watching it quite regularly. And it's a blast everytime.
