Elysium

I remember thinking that Elysium was an attempt to make a Behaviour of the 2010s, but not really succeeding at that (according to fan reactions, it didn't).

In a way it shouldn't be weird in a cognitive dissonance inducing way since it is "Behaviour@2012" to my ears so it's not like it's deviating from that at all, but since it was still quite hard to swallow at the time, I guess it's my answer.

RE: Elysium

This got my vote. I was expecting something different, laid back, but not elevator music - imo.
I rarely play it & although there are a couple of tracks I really like,the rest leaves me cold.Especially Winner!!!

RE: Elysium

I said it in a previous thread: ballad album ELYSIUM is when the Pet Shop Boys became Phil Collins. Nevertheless it has fine songs like Invisible, Leopard Skin, Leaving, A Face Like That, Everything Means Something, Give It A Go...
Hold On really sucks (sorry).
