In July the Pet Shop Boys release Electric, an album with a strong dance emphasis produced by Stuart Price: "It's called Electric because that's what it is - electronic music that we hope is exciting." The album went on to receive widespread critical acclaim. Q Magazine praised the release and said “With Electric, Pet Shop Boys have succeeded spectacularly”.
