The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether, given the likely downsides (such as fewer shows and 
venues, and higher ticket prices) they would like for the Pet Shop Boys to 
embark on an "orchestral" concert tour. And the response that received the 
largest number of votes was:

* ""Yes, and I probably would attend, even if I had to travel a long 
distance and/or pay a lot more for tickets," chosen by 43.2% of the voters.

To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at

button in the navigation bar.

My new poll for the week ahead was inspired by a good deal of online 
discussion among fans shortly after the release of the Boys' most recent 
album, "Elysium." Many fans were commenting on the previous album that they 
thought it was most like, with "Behaviour" and "Release" being the albums 
most frequently mentioned in this regard. So I'm wondering what *you* think. 
Of course, every PSB album is unique, but if you HAD to pick a previous 
studio album that you think "Elysium" most closely resembles, what would you 
choose? And do you think this similarity is a good, bad, or "neutral" thing? 
Thanks so much to Alexey from Russia for suggesting this question!

And thanks to everyone who voted in last week's survey! I hope you all have 
a very safe and happy week ahead!
