This Week's PSB Survey
According to Wikipedia, "cognitive dissonance" is the mental discomfort experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values. I can imagine certain albums causing something akin to cognitive dissonance if the album is tremendously unlike what the listener was expecting, either because (1) its style is so much unlike anything that artist has done before, (2) its advance singles or leaked tracks are very much unlike the rest of the album, or (3) it strikes the listener as quite different from what he or she had previously read or heard about the album from others. In light of this, which Pet Shop Boys album -- if any -- caused you the greatest "cognitive dissonance" (or something like it)? [313 votes total]
