It's been too long since the Pet Shop Boys last released a stonker of a album, but the Trevor Horn produced Fundamental has been touted as the one to bring the wilderness years to a close. It's a shame then that lead single "I'm With Stupid" seems to miss the mark.

While the theatrical intro of moody ballad "Numb" gives us a glimpse of the drama we've been missing, it's "Minimal" that really excites.With a sleekness that recalls New Order, it bangs out an electro pulse that even Tiga would be proud of.

But forget everything; as far as classics go, this album is all about final track "Integral". Blistering its way through 4 minutes of power pop, this is PSB returning to their finest, with punching choruses and breakdowns aplenty.

Granddaddies of pop they may be, but they aren't ready for the disco retirement home just yet.
