The album was very well received by critics, some considering it to be their best album since Very , but its sales failed to improve much on the sales of their last two albums. The album re-entered the UK Album Chart at number thirty-two in following the album's Further Listening reissue.

The album has been noted for being more political than any other of the duo's albums to date; even the title, in one sense, is a reference to religious fundamentalism — portrayed here in a light, critical manner, which singer Neil Tennant attributes to the relatively relaxed status of religious freedom in the United Kingdom.

Specific contemporary issues discussed in the lyrics include tensions and fears in the United States caused by the War on Terrorism , addressed in songs such as "Psychological" and "Luna Park" [15] " Luna Park " being the name of various amusement parks around the world. Other songs refer to the politics of the band's home country; " Indefinite leave to remain " refers to an immigration status in the United Kingdom, while " Integral " criticizes the Identity Cards Act A statement from a band spokesman cites the issue as the reason that Tennant ceased his well-publicized support of Tony Blair 's Labour Party.

Its sound bears the producer's heavily orchestral style also present on that song , most frequently associated with the ABC album The Lexicon of Love as well as the Frankie Goes to Hollywood single " Two Tribes " and subsequent album Welcome to the Pleasuredome.

Special limited editions of the album include a second bonus CD called Fundamentalism. The disc includes remixed tracks with contributions by artists such as Alter Ego. First released as a single in , it was later included on the album Reputation. The powerful opening track "Fugitive" contains lyrics suggestive of a dialogue between a male terrorist and a person who has a close relationship with him - originally conceived by Tennant as the terrorist's sister, but later re-cast in his thoughts as either the terrorist's sister, his brother or a close friend [19] - thus continuing the political themes of the main album.

On 22 December , the official Pet Shop Boys website announced an early track listing for the album and gave a release date of 17 April with new single "Minimal" arriving a few weeks beforehand. This was quickly followed up on 23 December, when pop music fansite Popjustice gave the first review of the album. At the same time "I'm with Stupid" was announced to be the revised lead single. This was followed on 4 April , with news that there would be a limited edition of the new album that would include a bonus CD called Fundamentalism.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Sometime in the late s, rock music officially reached adulthood. The fans who grew up on rock as a wild, youthful counter-culture were getting older; they had careers, kids, fancy stereo equipment, and whole new sets of concerns.

The same went for the stars themselves: Suddenly it was natural for them to look like adults, wear tapered suits, and act like they probably knew a lot about wine and real estate. Think of Rod Stewart, Dire Straits, Mick Jagger at Studio 54, and all those California guys who grew beards and indulged in self-employed guitar-strumming on self-owned houseboats.

The British dreamed of an adult high life and the Americans dreamed of white-collar vacations, and they began to make music about those dreams. By the time Pet Shop Boys came along, pop was fairly adult, and they certainly sold adult-like pop: reserved and witty, even arch.

Funny thing about them, though: They're one of the first acts I can think of to have navigated their own career-long growing-up with a form of electronic music.
