CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

What it definitely is, however, is a cohesive and strong effort that can stand up with some of their best.

In its more ill-judged moments, Elysium feels like the duo parodying themselves; sad, as it leaves the record with the unfortunate honour of being the second worst Pet Shop Boys album 

54
Pitchfork

They've settled into being elder statesmen of pop at a time when pop has little use for elder statesmen, and they're off-puttingly bitter about it.

50
Under The Radar

Elysium finds them sounding once again like proverbial fish out of water, only with far less aplomb.

50
PopMatters

Elysium is woefully short on what Tennant and Lowe do best, which is disarmingly sharp pop songs that stick in your head but also leave you thinking afterward.
