I'm not sure why I participated in that second Pet Shop Boys discography rate, as I knew from the outset that I'd probably loathe more than half of the songs. I didn't participate in part 3, you'll notice. I think I wanted to rate Very, and thought I'd at least give the other albums I hadn't heard a go. Big mistake; they weren't my thing at all. But I did actually listen to the songs. Well, there were a couple I skipped part-way through, because I thought they were so bad, but it would have been fewer than five songs. The Whole Story was the first Kate album I got, and I hated 'The Dreaming' at first/used to always skip it. It wasn't until I got The Dreaming, 3 and a bit years later, that I grew to appreciate it, in the context of its parent album. I was reluctant to get The Dreaming, actually, because of my feelings towards the title track on The Whole Story. If there were a sizable chunk of casual fans participating in this rate, it would make sense for 'The Dreaming' to barely scrape the top 50, as it's hardly an accessible track.
