    Bland, bland, bland. This is a very dull album indeed in my opinion. Some artists, and I would include the Pet Shop Boys, are lionized to such a degree that they seem almost beyond reproach in the minds of fans and critics alike.

    Springsteen cover ‘The Last To Die’, is a witty aside, but throbbing 4/4 dominates as the electronic legends make a welcome return to their roots.

    Throughout the record a pleasing balance of melody and repetition is maintained.

    Electric isn't quite electrifying in the way that Very and Introspective and "What Have I Done To Deserve This?" are, but nearly every track has a moment or two that ignites seemingly long-gone enthusiasm.
