When the economy finally kicks the last velvet-rope VIP down to the breadline, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe will remain in their hot tubs, counting their gold. Because no one writes better dance-pop odes to the Fallen Empire of the Feel-Good Class. The cool-throbbing ”Love Etc.” sharply skewers Gerhard Richter-collecting socialites, and the Spector-inflected ballad ”Beautiful People” is the perfect lullaby for the Blair Waldorf generation. Better yet, the hooks on Yes are as smart as Tennant’s mouth, and on tracks like ”Pandemonium,” the disco’s so primal, you could smash your bone china to the beat. B+
