Release is the eighth studio album by the British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys, originally released in April 2002 via Parlophone Records.

Release saw Pet Shop Boys introduce a more organic sound to their music with the use of guitars, piano and percussion instruments, rather than relying purely on sampled and electronic soundscapes. “The Captain” saw the band live on the tour supporting this album and it was the most “acoustic” orientated version of PSB seen to date.

Perhaps this change in musical direction impacted the commercial appeal and sales of the album, however “The Captain” regards this as one of the strongest PSB albums in their catalogue.

The album showcases some really strong songs such as “Home and Dry”, “I Get Along”, “Birthday Boy” (which is a beautiful ballad), “London”, “Here” and “The Night I Fell In Love”.

The album sounds fresh and different from their previous albums, allowing the melody and singing to shine through without the full instrumental backing that is prevalent on their previous albums.

Jodi Linscott, an accomplished percussionist, who has toured with Elton John, played on the album together with ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr. “The Captain” thinks that the addition of these two musicians in particular to the albums recording help lift the songs to another level.

This much overlooked album is well worth revisiting again – another classy album from this wonderful duo, Pet Shop Boys.

Check out the tracks:  Home and Dry”; “London”; “I Get Along”; “Birthday Boy”; “Here”;  andThe Night I Fell In Love”.

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