This was PIL's return to form after some years of changing lineups, and questions over Lydon's commitment to the cause. The LP receives mixed reviews but if you're a PIL fan, you know this as a bright point in the catalogue, not least because it features the brilliant 'Rise' in its proper context.

The sound is epic, due to Bill Laswell's production, and the stellar lineup of musicians on hand-- including Steve Vai, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Shankar, Ginger Baker and more. You wouldn't know who plays on what from the liner notes because there aren't any. The information about who plays can be found in the books and websites related to PIL and Lydon, but even then, the truth of who did what is still... out there somewhere.

So the packaging is true to the original, except.. shouldn't this be called COMPACT DISC?

The remaster is sheeny and spiky.

Having been fortunate enough to be 15 at the time of the punk explosion the splitting up the Sex Pistols was serious bad news.
Johnny Rotten turned into John Lydon and Public Image were formed. After the first album, which I loved, I lost interest in them as they rambled as opposed to the Pistols directness.
After buying 'live at Brixton 2009' and being blown away by the power of the bass and the heavy sound, I started to delve into the remastered 2011 catalogue.
The sound is superb, the original CDs always sounded tinny and the thin sound put me off.
This is how they were supposed to sound and...........

I feel like I have found Johnny all over again !
His vocals snarl as great as they ever did and his lyrics are always antagonist and prophetic.
This ALBUM is superb and I am buying them all one by one.
I honestly believe he is one of the greatest artists of our time, very underrated by the mainstream.
Can't wait for the new album!

Whilst I like all of Pil's back catalogue, some of it can come as a bit of a surprise if people are expecting anything like the Sex Pistols from John Lydon. He was desperately trying to avoid that. Sometimes earlier on, he maybe tried too hard, and that could alienate a lot of listeners.

'Album' is a nice, tight album with some very 'hummable' riffs and tunes on it. The production was strong and the remastering lifts it even more. If people haven't listened to Pil before but are interested, this is a good album to get first. It has some of the poppier elements to it, but also some of Lydon's typical droning vocals, and word repetition that might stand you in good stead to go looking further back through their work.

Intelligent AOR - my guess is that Mr Rotten himself probably hates this cd by now as it is actually pretty good, but very much 'Rock'. The songs are well structured and played by a top notch band including metal maestro Steve Vai (Passion and Warfare, Alcatraz). 'Rise' is fantastic, and there are many surprises for those who are new to Pil. 'CD' was ahead of its time - Mr Lydon himself says that PiL paved the way for Massive Attack, but with this album you also hear the vangaurd of grunge and nu-metal about to claw its way out of the corpse of the feel good rock that prevailed at the time. 4 stars as Some songs are a bit too long and he sounds like a Dalek with the blues on 'Bags'
