The reactions to Pet Shop Boys' new single, "Love Etc.", have definitely been very positive. It is being acclaimed as the duo's best single in many years and it is even receiving high praises from people who admit to not being fans of Pet Shop Boys.
The song has been praised for being very subtle, dark and minimalistic and yet being very addictive. A number of reactions have also noted how the reciprocal love between Xenomania and Pet Shop Boys is made very clear in the song.
Some of the best moments in the song that people have pointed out include the stadium-chant glam chorus, Neil Tennant's ageless voice, the tingling synth line, the observational lyrical style and the ravishing melody.
Listen to the song and read some reviews.
