Fundamental is the ninth studio album by the British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys, originally released in May 2006 via Parlophone Records.

This is the Pet Shop Boys most “political” album released to date and the title is a reference to religious fundamentalism. A special limited edition of the album was released with a second CD titled “Fundamentalism”.

This album marked a return to form in the eyes of the music critics and saw the Pet Shop Boys collaborate once again with legendary producer Trevor Horn. Horn brings back an orchestral feel to the songs with the use of collaborators associated with his work over the years including Anne Dudley and Steve Lipson.

The so-called “War On Terror” influences the songs on the album such as “Luna Park”, “Psychological” and “Indefinite Leave to Remain”. "Indefinite Leave to Remain" refers to an immigration status in the United Kingdom, while "Integral" criticizes the Identity Cards Act 2006.

The lead single from the album "I'm with Stupid", satirizes then British Prime Minister Blair's alliance with George W. Bush. “Casanova in Hell" is about the 18th century historical figure Giacomo Casanova, and how he immortalized himself by writing memoirs about his history of sexual seduction of numerous women. "The Sodom and Gomorrah Show" references two of the biblical cities of sin, Sodom and Gomorrah, in saying that to learn to 'go where angels fear to tread' (i.e. to sin) is to learn to live freely.

Perhaps the political nature of the songs impacted the commercial appeal of the album. Despite the lacklustre commercial success of the album, Fundamental earned two Grammy nominations at the 2007 Grammy Awards for Best Dance/Electronic Album and Best Dance Recording with "I'm with Stupid".

Check out the tracks:  I’m with Stupid”; “Minimal”; “Numb”; Integral”; “The Sodom And Gomorrah Show”; andCasanova In Hell”.

This LP record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, featuring the new 2017 remaster, pressed in Europe.
