''On its own terms, Super succeeds brilliantly. Price, who has also done great work for Madonna and New Order, is adept at highlighting the core values of pop veterans while adding a contemporary edge. Every track sounds punchy, urgent and laser bright. Inner Sanctum was produced with Berlin’s cavernous Berghain venue in mind, and you can tell. Undertow and the up-all-night war cry Burn are gleaming technopop juggernauts.
In tandem with Electric, Super makes listeners who heard Elysium as a farewell rather than just another stop along the way feel rather foolish for thinking that age (Tennant is 61, Lowe 56) could wither the Pet Shop Boys’ commitment to pop music. You wonder, in fact, if these two albums with Price were partly inspired by a desire to rebut the idea that dancefloor pop is something you outgrow, a narrative arc they probably find trite and depressing. It may be a coincidence that the sentiments of the album-closer Into Thin Air – one friend or lover trying to persuade another to flee a bad situation and start afresh somewhere new – echo those of Two Divided Zero, the first song on their first album, but it’s certainly telling. Escapism, adventure, reinvention, companionship: the qualities that drew the Pet Shop Boys into pop in the first place entrance them still. They remain, now and forever, the pop kids.'' (TheGuardian)
