If im not mistaked , the first public image ltd compilation released in 1990 , having purchased this with the high expectation , i was left pondering as to why there was such an awful sax playing along during THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG a far cry from the origianl version i rememberd in 1983, sounding more like relax by frankie goes to hollywood in places .
RISE sounds like a 12 inch remix version , not the original 7 inch version released in 1986 and so i wonder why the record company decided not to inform the buyer of the different versions on this cobbled together compilation when it was released .
The first five tracks appear to be the originals from arguably pils most interesting and creative period before they appeared to fall victim to the eighties record producer . awash with synths and overdubs .

Do yourself a favour and purchase the albums between 1979 -86 or better still buy the JOHN LYDON - THE BEST OF BRITISH .... compilation .

Mystifyingly, Public Image Limited are still underrated to this day. John Lydon's more famous band, the Sex Pistols, are still given more attention, but this, in my opinion, is a lot more innovative and expansive. Also, the other musicians, such as Keith Levene and Jah Wobble, were far more talented musically than the 'musicians' in the sex pistols.

From the outset, John Lydon was determined to create something unique and original, which he did with aplomb on songs such as 'Public Image', in 1978. It is worthy of note that PiL's first album was being worked on even before the Sex Pistols had split - such is John Lydon's drive and vision. However, track two on this album is definitely one of the stand-out tracks, 'Death Disco'. This is an irrestible slice of disco fused with punk fused with lord knows what else! It honestly does sound like nothing else! Lydon's distinctive and sinister sounding vocal compliments the music perfectly, and the whole thing is executed marvellously.

'Careering' gives off more sinister vibes, sounding oppressive yet compulsive, but most importantly, like nothing else which surfaced in the post-punk era. Track six is yet another fantastic song, 'This Is Not A Love Song'. For a man who was supposedly so inaccessible during the punk era, this is a mightly infectious song which is actually quite perfect for dancing to. Lydon's vocal is also distinctive and commanding. What a shame that so few have investigated music as excellent as this!

'Rise' features some great lyrics, great musicianship and strong vocals from Lydon. It is often forgotten just what a great songwriter John Lydon is, but this proves that he is extremely accomplished, and also original.

I have come late to John Lydon et al through PIL's most recent and superior album This is Pil; the title 'Greatest Hits, So Far'. PIL get better as time goes on and so does this album, so that by the time they get to track 5 things start to warm up. The Warrior is, in my opinion, a contender for PIL's best track to date, with lots and lots of energy. Worth owning but not before buying This is PiL first.

Public Image Ltd were a band who passed me by at the time of their original recorded output apart from "Public Image" which I bought on 7" vinyl and still own to this day and is undoubtedly one of the greatest singles ever released. It's a stunning fusion of aqueous bass and wind tunnel guitars allied to Lydons sneering perspicacious vocal. Why it's taken me so long to investigate them further is something that even I can't fathom but I've remedied that by purchasing this neat summation of their career and it's a very fine CD although a handful of tracks are flaccid bass heavy cod funk workouts. "Memories", "Careering" and "Warrior" are all guilty of this lazy approach.
The early material is based exclusively around those burbling fluid bass lines and skeletal guitar arrangements." Death Disco" which is about the death of Lydons mother is catharsis through music, his vocal is at the very edge of ragged yet it's carried along by the protean music. It's a brilliant track. "The Flowers of Romance" centres on tribal drumming and coarse stalactites of violin. Startling bursts of brass punctuate "This is not a love Song" which is essentially that phrase repeated over and over again yet is a wonderful song, love song or not. It also boasts an irrepressibly funky bass line. "Rise" almost enters pop territory thanks to its sing along chorus while the guitars have a commercial sheen but its last minute with Lydon screaming "Anger is energy" while distorted noise wails around him thankfully adds an acerbic edge. "Home" has a guitar solo of all things is still a compelling mix of heavy duty percussion and sudden bursts of exotic far eastern walls of sound.
