Alternative (1995)

"Hey, Headmaster" And now deeper into the native habitat of the wild fan: some 30 so-called b-sides from the Pet Shop Boys. I actually spent a lot of time with this, enjoying it very much, parsing good from weak and kind of studying it like a book. For some reason related to my introspective behavior and the way I listened to music at the time, I made shorthand of my impressions by reducing it to track numbers when I wanted to use it as source material in a mix tape. So disc 1 choices would be 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 15; for disc 2, 2, 3, 6, 7 (the above referenced "Hey, Headmaster"), 11, and so forth. It may have been close, but I counted better than half of the songs as good. If that's damning with faint praise, then so be it.
