While 'The The' saw Islam rising and Christians mobilising, the Poppies knew it would be American Pop culture that would destroy us all.
This was the innovative path music was taking before Oasis caused a generation to embrace mediocrity.
Stealing your riff is fine...its what you do with it that counts! Buy this and see how things should have been.

Why, oh why is this album so underrated. We never see it on lists of 'best ever albums', yet everybody I know who has actually heard it rates it as an absolue classic. Is it snobbishness? Is it the fact it contains, shock horror, brummie rapping? I dunno...
The first thing I heard by PWEI was WISE UP! SUCKER and it blew my mind. I was a metal-head back then, and although I have been on a long musical journey since those days, the appeal of this album remains undiminished. Why do I never get tired of it?
First of all, it stands up as a complete album, not just a collection of songs. There is a definite flow to the album that is almost conceptual, and although the songs stand up on their own, they achieve a special power when played in sequence.
Secondly, just listen to the sampling! Remember, this is pre-computer, the only people coming close to this level were The Bomb Squad and The Dust Brothers. But the Poppies for me were the most creative. Use DEF.CON.ONE. as an example. The Stooges, The Osmonds, Funky Town and the Twilight Zone theme all fitting perfectly into the mix. CAN U DIG IT? sums this approach up lyrically also, basically if the Poppies dug it, it got thrown in there.
Thirdly, despite the oft derided humourous element of the band, there are some startlingly mature musical and lyrical touches dotted about. The portentous THE FUSES HAVE BEEN LIT anticipates the crass commercialism of modern life, while SATELLITE ECSTATICA's commanding bassline and screaming brass gives it a sweatily claustrophobic feel. Best of all though is WAKE UP! TIME TO DIE. The outro of looped guitar feedback truly sends shivers down the spine.
I could go on forever, I love this album so much.

This album is simply superb - superb sounding guitars, sequencers/sampling and lyrics with humour and not a little irony. At times the music can almost lurch into "industrial" territory (a compliment in my view).
If I had to keep any one of all the PWEI albums I had this would be the one I'd keep. Box Frenzy is the next best with Cure for Sanity and Dos Dedos Mis Amigos fighting it out for third place.

This astounding album saw PWEI mutate from midlands fuzz guitar exponents into one of the world's leading exponents of hip-hop. Fabulous samples, way cool lyrics and some downright fabulous songs -- Especially singles Can U Dig IT and Wise Up Sucker! -- make this a landmark thta I've been listening to for ten years. PWEI never did better.

This is a great album!!! It's a shame that the Poppies didn't get the sucess they deserved because songs like Wake Up! Time to die, Def.Con.One and The fuses have been lit deserve to be top 10 hits!
Some of the songs grate a bit (but then again i have listened to it a LOT) and the short songs are a tiny bit silly (though rather cool), but overall it is a fantastic album! Don't hesitate to buy this, as you won't regret it :)
