    On March 23 the album Yes is released. Unlike their previous album, when the Pet Shop Boys first started writing songs for what would become Yes they had no fixed scheme either sonically or in terms of subject matter. “We ended up writing a group of really poppy songs,” says Neil, “and therefore we decided we would approach the producers Xenomania because they seemed to us like the most interesting and imaginative pop producers at the moment.” Three of the eleven songs on the final album would also be written with Xenomania: “It’s an interesting process. It stretches you and brings new things into your vocabulary.” Johnny Marr - “he famously years ago described himself as the Carlos Alomar of the Pet Shop Boys” – returns to play guitar and also the harmonica, the instrument’s first appearance on a Pet Shop Boys record. “We can’t seem to remember how we came up with the title Yes,” says Neil. “Our official story is that we may have taken it from the famous Yoko Ono exhibition in 1967 where you had to climb up a step ladder – as John Lennon famously did - pick up a magnifying glass, look at a tiny word written on the ceiling, and the word was ‘yes’. I think it partly came from that.” (Chris adds: “We thought No was a bit negative.”)

    Rolling Stone (p.66) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "On their excellent 10th album, the music leans toward the ornate, with snatches of Tchaikovsky and spaghetti-Western atmospherics enveloping the synths and house beats."
    Spin (p.94) - "U.K. girly-pop production team Xenomania bring mirrorball sparkle to alternately anxious and elated ballads."
    Q (Magazine) (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Amazed by love's arrival, devastated by its departure, Tennant never lets himself become jaded. That joyous surrender courses through the irresistible 'Pandemonium'..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]lmost every track here is a potential hit. Tennant casts a withering glance at stardom on lead-off single 'Love Etc., with its memorable call-and-response chorus..."
