5.0 out of 5 stars The Dream Team 24 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Lydon & McGeoch - pure genius. The best musician Lydon ever played with creates a sublime background for John's ever more desperate vocals. Simply a thing of great beauty and, whilst not quite matching the heights of Metal Box, this is worth five stars (Metal Box is worth six, at least).

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning End to P.I.L. Story 25 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After the experimental and improvisational albums of their early career 1992's "That What Is Not" could be considered a much more conventional outing. However, this series of heavy metal songs is far from ever being staid or boring! Guitarist John McGeoch's playing is second to none throughout, (listen to his glorious solos on "Emperor" and "Luck's Up" in particular.) Lydon's searing vocals are, as always, delivered with his usual lyrical inventiveness, making an album of thunderous power and intensity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melodious hard rock explorations 28 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album of powerful guitar driven music marked John Lydon's return in the 1990s. Lydon is assisted by John McGeoch, Alan Dias and Curt Bisquera. Acid Drops is a scorching slab of heavy metal, Lucks Up is similar, a farewell song to a drug abuser. The thrash metal vibe continues on Cruel and Covered, whilst Unfairground and Love Hope have a more eclectic mix that includes harmonica and psychedelic twists and turns. Lydon's piercing voice rides the sonic wave to impressive effect. Emperor is a frenzied throwback to his punk roots, Good Things is a type of retro electro with a funky rhythmic undertone and Think Tank has a catchy tune and almost singalong chorus. That What Is Not is a strong album of neo heavy metal, exploring various avenues of the genre. It also contains some great melodic songs with intelligent lyrics and Lydon's trademark caustic observations. This work is as good as anything he came up with in the previous two decades, including the Metal Box set and his work with Sex Pistols.

This P.I.L. album is one of the more later ones it features there last hit single "Cruel".
It starts of with a classic "Acid drops" which in my opinion is the best song on the album other good songs are "Cruel" and "Think tank" which has a catchy riff.
Although there are some songs on which can bore you, but overall a great album, difinately worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars PIL's best-ever rock record 1 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is great. Lydon's howling vocals matched with an all-out guitar assault from John McGeoch. It may not be as 'different' as earlier PIL stuff (which is very hit and miss anyway) but it's still demented in many places and almost every song is fantastic. So there.
