Rolling Stone (10/31/96, p.70) - 3-1/2 Stars - Good/Excellent - "...The quintessential '80s act...have stuck to their guns and refused to defer to passing '90s fads. While their peers would have gone trip-hop by now, Lowe and Tennant have stayed true to their disco-pop sensibility..."Spin (10/96, pp.131-132) - 8 - Very Good - "...Tennant may be too much the cynic to buy into pop platitudes, but he's also too much a realist to think ironic detachment can sustain life. So he remains fluent in both languages--and ends up with astonishingly eloquent songs."Entertainment Weekly (9/6/96, p.76) - "The eighth album of slick-as-a-mirror-ball pop from this droll British duo relies as much on melody as rhythm or the Boys' trademark irony, making this a near-perfect album for converting discophobes to the pleasures of dance music..."- Rating: B+Q (10/96, p.160) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Where once there were gleaming surfaces, there are whistles, infectious percussion and sensual jazz chords straight from a cantina in Sao Paulo....a bold step for the Pet Shop Boys and, happily, it works almost unreservedly..."Melody Maker (8/31/96, p.44) - "...`Why would intelligent English musicians want to concern themselves with impassioned Eurodisco?...' BILINGUAL has no place in any such dialogue. The duo's ability to soil a perfectly good disco stomper by dropping in The Chord Of Mourning is well-known to fans who bought the achingly autumnal BEHAVIOUR. They've honed it to a fine art here..."NME (Magazine) (8/31/96, p.54) - 8 (out of 10) - "...they take us to a new setting...invested in some of the rhythmic knowledge of the South Americans they met on their '94 tour....Tennant's singing like a man who's reached a certain age and feels good/bad/guilty about it....seldom has their music sounded so rich..."119.8822

Alternative Press (7/95, p.102) - Ranked # 84 in AP's list of the `Top 99 of '85-'95' - "...synths and drum machines form the perfect carpet for Neil Tennant's funny and intelligent lyrics to walk over. As fey as Morrissey, but with a yearning to be Bertolt Brecht, they really did paint a true picture of England in the mid '80s....Dance music for people who couldn't dance, and had no interests in trying..."Alternative Press (7/95, p.102) - Ranked # 84 in AP's list of the `Top 99 of '85-'95' - "...synths and drum machines form the perfect carpet for Neil Tennant's funny and intelligent lyrics to walk over.

Spin (1/99, pp.116-118) - 9 (out of 10) - "...[OMD's] pitiless singles compilation is kind of inspiring. It suggests that fabulous constructions never die--they just end up occupying space in our pop landscape like great buildings..."Entertainment Weekly (12/11/98, pp.80-81) - "Not as witty as the Pet Shop Boys, as kinetic as Yazoo, or as melodramatic as Soft Cell, OMD did help birth the concept of the synth-pop duo, and at their best...sounded like a cross between Bobby Vinton and Kraftwerk..." - Rating: B0.5336322
