    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite artists of all time.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking band. Or artist.
    • 8/10 - Great sound, great songs, great albums.
    • 7/10 - Very good, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. More than a few songs you like. You'd entertain the thought of seeing them live if they were in the area. Or still alive.
    • 5/10 - They're okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to listen to.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There may be a song or two, or an album that you dig, but you'd rather listen to other stuff.
    • 3/10 - Not very good. You will more likely than not turn the station if they come on the radio.
    • 2/10 - Pretty crappy.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - In the running for worst artist/musician of all time. You would rather take a cheese grater to your face than listen to this.

Pet Shop Boys is just good pop music. I can't exactly consider myself a massive fan, but I'll happily concede they have made a lot of great songs that I can't imagine anyone disliking.

Although their heyday were the 80s and early 90s, I think it's commendable that they have mostly kept up the pace, and actually made some really good stuff all the way up until recent years. Here are some examples not mentioned by the OP which stuck to their early stuff:




And of course, there's the brand new collab with Soft Cell:



I don't really think you can argue with any of this, and can't help feeling my 8/10 is set a little low.
