About this album

Fundamental is the sixteenth album, the ninth of entirely new music, by the British band Pet Shop Boys. It was released in May 2006 in the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, and Canada, and was released in late June 2006 in the United States. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at number five on 28 May 2006. In the US the album peaked at #150 selling 7500 copies in its first week. As of April 2009 it has sold only 46,000 copies in the US and 66,000 copies in the UK. Fundamental earned three GRAMMY nominations at the 2007 Grammy awards for Best Dance/Electronic Album and Best Dance Recording with “I’m With Stupid” and 2008 for Best Dance Recording with “Minimal.”

The album was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and Trevor Horn and it features eleven new Pet Shop Boys compositions, and “Numb,” written by Diane Warren (Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe originally planned to have “Numb” be one of two new tracks on PopArt, but opted instead for “Miracles” and “Flamboyant”).

    FreeMHZ, natsumana, you're just reading my thoughts :-) I also mean that this album has too many ballads. But this album is for me better than "Release" of which I thought that they're already at their end (not only because there were almost only ballads there, but also because of the sound and harmony, comparing e.g. to Nightlife). At least I stopped thinking that this is the end. My favorites here are: Minimal, 20th Century, Integral, Luna Park (played it also working as bar pianist)

    It's also apparently a fairly political album. Subtly done, of course, otherwise it wouldn't be PSB...

    First Pet Shop Boys album I ever owned, and the reason I now love them! This and the 'I'm with Stupid' single.

    Great PSB album. May not touch their absolute classics but is still a damn great album. Way better than Release and Yes for example.

    Is hard to find any work inteligent and creative as it was... Simply original and singular in music.

    Sodom, what a track! If only the record label would have let them relese this as a single I think we could have seem some great mixes (and mix titles!)
