Sometime between The Flowers of Romance and this record P.I.L. imploded. P.I.L. had finally shed the noise and experimentation and took a turn for the pop. I guess it’s understandable if fans of the original line-up ditched the band at this point, but, despite its radio-friendly aspirations, this album seriously rocks. Sure the abundance of raging solos aligns this record the band’s hair metal counterparts, but Lydon’s vocal style and the overall arrangements keep the punk rock vibe alive.
