    I hate all synthpop actually but I really loved the song Minimal, it has good beats and is dreamy it's not like the other songs on this album. I don't like Pet Shop Boys but Minimal is a really awesome song.

  1. "Fundamental" is the sound of the Pet Shop Boys reborn, and mindful of the important role they fill in the pop family.

    [An] underwhelming collection of moderately sweeping, mildly elegant arena pop. [Jun 2006, p.108]
  3. Fundamental is the thinking person's electropop album of 2006 so far.
