Nightlife is the seventh studio album by English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was released on 8 October 1999 by Parlophone. After the release and promotion of their previous album, Bilingual, Pet Shop Boys started work with playwright Jonathan Harvey on the stage musical that eventually became Closer to Heaven (at one stage during the writing process, the musical was given the name of Nightlife)
Pet Shop Boys – Nightlife. Label: Parlophone – 35012-2, Sire – 35012-2. This limited version of the "Nightlife" album has an extra CD with b-sides and remixes.
Nightlife is a loose concept album - more of a song cycle, really - about nightlife (naturally), a collection of moods and themes, from love to loneliness. In that sense, it's not that different from most Pet Shop Boys albums, and, musically, the album is very much of a piece with Very and Bilingual, which is to say that it relies more on craft than on innovation. Depending on your point of view, this may not be such a bad thing, since Pet Shop Boys specialize in subtle craft and masterful understatement.
On October 11, 1999, the Pet Shop Boys release their new album, Nightlife, which includes twelve new songs. The songs are variously produced by Craig Armstrong, Rollo, David Morales and the Pet Shop Boys themselves. On one song, In denial, Neil duets with Kylie Minogue. In terms of its theme, the album reminds me in some ways of one of those Frank Sinatra albums from the Fifties like In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning.
Only 19 left in stock (more on the way).

Pet Shop Boys CD Nightlife NUOVO SIGILLATO 0724352185726. The whole album is a story of relationships, some straight, some not, including a cameo from Kylie about a fathers struggle with his sexuality. I would recommend it to any open minded music lover, very well written, with a good mix of music styles and content. by beardmore754028 Jan, 2007. good condition and fast delivery well pacelled up. I just wanted some old pet shop boys cd as i have just got back in to them ass I was into to them in the 80's. Best-selling in CDs. See all.
Of course, one shouldn't expect a Pet Shop Boys album to open like a Jansky Noise/ VVM soundclash, but the rococo blandness of "For Your Own Good," which relies heavily on samples from Rollo's Faithless project, sets one up for the mightiest disappointment since the lonesome evening you discovered that you couldn't perform auto- fellatio. Yeah, Nightlife has tracks that you could play on the radio, and then there are those that should be played only to those willing to be subjected to the utmost degradation and dehumanization. How else are we supposed to describe the computer- as- metaphor conceit of "Happiness is an Option" (as though emotions were selected in the preferences dialog box of the human mind) or the undying irritation induced by "Vampires.
