This is the point in the Public Image Ltd. timeline where John Lydon decided either a) to completely forgo his punk rock roots and succumb to the temptations of pop radio, pushing his musical pallette into new and exciting places b) chorus pedals are really friggin' cool. The end result can be a mixed bag. There are a couple great songs like "Seattle" and "The Body," but there are also a few not-so-great ones. Granted, there's nothing as bad as, say, A Flock of Seagulls' pop aspirations on Dreams Come True, but, then again, can anything truly be worse than that?
