Second Edition

Public Image Ltd. - CD - Rating: 9/10

I always liked P.I.L. much, much more than The Sex Pistols. I’ll concede that most of this record is just self-indulgent noise making, but it works for me. I love the driving bass lines which, to me, are very reminiscent of dub reggae. The guitar is all over the place and noodley but, in the end, it just creates a nice layer of ambient noise over which Lydon can scream, chant and holler. This disc is the one to put on if you want to annoy your square neighbors… or any neighbor for that matter.
