You're not seriously suggesting that the Pet Shop Boys are the greatest pop group of all time, are you?

Actually, no. I'm only suggesting that they're one of the greatest pop groups of all time, as well as my own personal favorite contemporary recording artists. Someone can regard a certain artist as his or her own personal favorite while conceding that there are other artists just as great or even greater.

Then again, at least as far as I'm concerned, there aren't many greater than the Pet Shop Boys.
