Introspective vs. Observant

By Jaxson

  • Introspective

    Introspective is the third studio album by English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was released on 11 October 1988 by Parlophone. It is the duo’s second best-selling album after Very (1993), selling over 4.5 million copies worldwide.

    It is so named because “all the songs, although it’s a dance album, are introspective”. Perhaps the biggest change in Pet Shop Boys’ sound evident on this album is an increasing attention to orchestration using real orchestras, particularly on the Trevor Horn-produced “Left to My Own Devices”, which took months to produce.
