4.0 out of 5 stars Warts And All 17 Oct 2011
By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
18 months into their continuation - and Public Image Limited issue their second live set : 2009's "AliFe" covered the first few dates of their first tour in seventeen years in a fledgling, tentative reading of some of the material : this covers what is hopefully the end of their nostalgia period. Within this is no song - barring the solo colloboration with Leftfield "Open Up" - less than 22 years old. But what songs.

The lineup offers little in the way of continuity with the pervious PiL eras, being most of the band that toured 1986's "album" and made 1987's under-rated (and expensive, long deleted) "Happy?", alongside permanent alumni and visionary John Lydon. The production, and sound of the band, as well as the performance is tight, immaculate : possibly the best band Lydon has ever worked with - as songs such as "Open Up" become so much more than a three minute electro romp and become, definitively, a PiL classic. The guitars are precise, the playing is note-perfect, but spirited. This may not be the nostalgic vision of PiL many of the purists want, but it is a band that lives and breathes the songs and performs them with a commitment.

On this set mind you, PiL offer a clearly warts-and-all performance : the band are plagued with tehcnical problems in "Religion", and "Home". "Home" stumbles and falls to pieces before our ears as Lydon berates the clearly wayward sound and the band - unable to hear each other - struggle before capitulating to the elements. Gremlins are fixed by the fouth song, "Albatross" and the band pull out a strong, and worthy set.

John Lydon's new PIL is a vibrant band - a bunch of old dogs determined to demonstrate that they are still capable of performing new tricks.

This performance is full of energy and anger - anger, because Lydon is clearly displeased with the sound quality on stage during this performance, which actually makes for quite an amusing listen as he rants at the poor technicians. How many bands have put out such 'honest' warts 'n' all performances?

Spread over two discs (just!) we get the best of the PIL back catalogue delivered with energy, passion and drive. Lu Edmond's bass lines are sublime and Lydon's vocal delivery attacking. His banter between songs is also great fun.

If you're a fan, add this to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Si So 23 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After watching their stupendous set at Glastonbury 2013 l eagerly bought the most recent live album.However l am mildly disappointed This should never have been released as the band cannot hear each other which by their own admission meant a sub standard performance..The sound balance is quite poor,with the three musicians all a bit under recorded compared to the vocals.The drums at times sound like a toy drum set and on some tracks the bass is not audible at all..It is a double CD but the 2nd CD has just 3 tracks on it..The whole project is a bit farcical from start to finish and does little justice to the fine band that is PIL

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Performance - After a Point 8 Dec 2011
By Robert Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The last reviewer was right when he says the sound is an issue. The first two tracks are terrible because the sound engineer didn't mix properly and the band cannot hear themselves. Lydon is ropable and swears in frustration, imploring whoever is responsible to fix the sound immediately. This is done during the track marked "break" and from then on things improve dramatically. Lydon has a great rapport with the crowd and seems intent on making up for things by putting in a cracking vocal performance. I defy anyone to listen to this and tell me he has lost one iota of his vocal prowess. The band is pretty good actually. A little bass heavy but that suits the military pulse of the music, and remember Jah Wobble's prominent bass lines ? Oh yeah, and whoever is playing bass here does so with greatest respect. Sample "Warrior" from the downloads. Fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience PIL live 23 Aug 2012
By SLAYER - Published on Amazon.com
Contrary to a previous review , who seems to think this is a studio album, it is a Live recording.
I think it is interesting as you get an irate Lydon, at the beginning, and a full concert experience.
S*it happens

1.0 out of 5 stars Holy crap 7 Oct 2011
By P. Wynia - Published on Amazon.com
Who listened to this recording and said "hey, let's release that!". An awful recording is somehow made even worse by crap arrangements and a terribly unrehearsed band. I have no problem with a money grab, but I'd rather be A&M left with nothing than someone stuck with this.

Buy "Live in Tokyo" instead, back from when the band was relevant, interesting, and worth listening to.
