Ranking elders of UK synth-pop alongside Depeche Mode and OMD, Pet Shop Boys carry themselves with a rare elegance, wit and style beyond what even those esteemed groups can touch. After debuting with a clutch of mid-’80s transatlantic pop hits (“West End Girls,” “It’s a Sin”), Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have long since transcended those times by continually refining their brand of thinking-man’s dance music, becoming British icons and nurturing one of this country’s most dashing and devoted cult fanbases. Released this spring, Super marks the group’s astonishing 15th link in a chain of one-word albums notable for their quality and consistency; over the years they’ve also branched out into ballet (The Most Incredible Thing) and a 2005 recasting of landmark Russian silent film Battleship Potemkin’s score. Tours of the States are considerably less frequent, and are simply not to be missed by anyone bearing more than a modicum of culture and taste.
