Review

Twenty years after their debut Please, Cubism proves the Pet Shop Boys were still going strong in 2006. Filmed at Mexico City''s Auditorio Nacional, it''s a spirited celebration of their minimalist dance-pop aesthetic. As Neil Tennant says in his introduction, "Welcome to an evening of electronic entertainment." (He''ll proceed to sprinkle a few Spanish words throughout his spare stage patter.) The full line-up features a dark-suit and top hat-sporting Tennant on vocals, neon hoody and baseball cap-clad Chris Lowe on keyboards, two singers, and two dancers--half dressed like Tennant, half like Lowe (and all will change outfits a few times before the show is over). During the 103-minute program, the duo covers most of the highlights from their career, with the emphasis on material from Actually, Introspective, Very, and Fundamental. Notable omissions include the entirety of 1999''s Nightlife and 1987 single "What Have I Done to Deserve This," but there''s no way to do justice to the latter without Dusty Springfield. Longtime back-up singer Sylvia Mason-James, however, elevates several numbers, notably "Suburbia" and "West End Girls," while Ian Mckellen provides the pre-recorded intermission announcement. The ballads "Home & Dry" (with Tennant on acoustic guitar) and the Diane Warren-penned "Numb" slow the pace a bit, but this is otherwise an upbeat, up-tempo night of music. Extras include a mini-documentary, photo gallery, liner notes by band biographer Chris Heath (Pet Shop Boys, Literally), and amusingly self-effacing audio commentary from Tennant, Lowe, and director David Barnard. --Kathleen C.
