About this album

Behaviour (Behavior in the original US pressing) is the fifth album, the fourth of entirely new music, by the UK electronic music group Pet Shop Boys. It was first released on October 22, 1990. It was also released in Japan with an additional CD3.

Although a popular album among fans, in the context of Pet Shop Boys’ other albums, Behaviour differs in production value. Harold Faltermeyer was hired on to produce the album at his “Red Deer” studio in Munich, Germany. Because they were dissatisfied with the available digital synthesisers and samples, Pet Shop Boys wanted to use analogue synthesisers. Faltermeyer was a good choice for producer, as he happened to be an expert on analog equipment. The result was a Pet Shop Boys album different from both the previous album, Introspective and the 1993 follow-up, Very. In places, the album expands upon the synthpop genre with flavours of guitar pop ballads, as with “This must be the place I waited years to leave” and “My October symphony” featuring guitarist, Johnny Marr. Later, singer Neil Tennant would reflect on the different style of Behaviour, “It was more reflective and more musical-sounding, and also it probably didn’t have irritatingly crass ideas in it, like our songs often do”. Tennant later reflected the album was inspired by fellow synthpop group Depeche Mode’s album Violator, which was also released in 1990.

As with most of the group’s albums up to 2001, Behaviour was re-released as Behaviour/Further Listening 1990-1991.

    Didn't fully appreciate this album when it first came out but now I think it is one of their best.

    Didn't fully appreciate this album during my first 'PSB Phase', instead playing a lot of Very, but lately it's just clicked with me, and it's currently helping me through a bit of shit time, so that's nice! There's nothing these two can't do. Beautiful.

    Subestimado disco de los Pet Shop. Es tremendamente elaborado y sin tanta floritura bailable.Para escuchar.

    A great album of songs plus an imaginative sound, possibly their best work. (With 'Very' a close second) Relative perfection.
