Permanent Record Podcast

Brian and Sarah are your hosts for this look back at albums from the New Wave and Classic Rock genres-- albums which have earned a permanent spot in their record collection. The hosts start the discussion with a history of the album, followed by their personal history with it. Over the course of two episodes, they do a track-by-track review of the album and the videos that accompany the singles. They conclude by each giving the album a final review and rating of zero to five record adapters. Join Brian and Sarah in this fun look back at the hits-- along with some misses-- of the 70s and 80s!

Episode 4 - Pet Shop Boys - Actually (Part 2)

Finally returning for the new year, Brian and Sarah take a look (and a listen!) to the Pet Shop Boys' 1987 album "Actually."  Here the two finish up their track-by-track discussion by addressing the songs on side 2.  Also, Brian poses an excellent extra credit question and then final grades are distributed.

Part 3 (Continued): Track By Track

A track by track evaluation of the album's second side!  Which song annoyed Neil's old school?  Which song was written for Madonna?  Lots of juicy tidbits for your enjoyment!

It Couldn't Happen Here
It's A Sin
I Want To Wake Up
King's Cross

Part 4: Extra Credit Question

Brian seems to recall that "Always On My Mind" was a #1 hit for the Pet Shop Boys around this time.  Sarah explains why he didn't find that famous song on this album.

Part 5: Final Grade

Brian announces his final review and rating of the album, and Sarah follows suit. Which one of them rates it higher?  Or will they be of the same mind on this classic 80's album??
