Introspective (2018 Remaster) [1LP]
The group’s 1988, third album has sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide to date and was the first to feature production by Trevor Horn, whose lavish orchestrations marked a new sonic direction for PSB. House Music legend, Frankie Knuckles created the mix of “I Want A Dog” while “Domino Dancing” was recorded in Miami with hit producer Lewis Martinée.
‘Introspective’ also saw Pet Shop Boys introduce a new approach to the format of an album and its respective singles: each of the 6 tracks on the album’s original track-listing is over six minutes in length, and they were later edited to fit the more traditional format of a seven-inch single.
“The idea was to have an album where every track was a single. And in fact five out of the six of them were, because ‘I’m not scared’ was a single for Patsy Kensit, or rather for her group Eighth Wonder”, says Neil Tennant.
