PROPA PUNK ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Kiss This (Audio CD)
May I just say if you dont own a sex pistols album...buy *KISS THIS* and NOT *Never mind the b**locks*, becoz it contains ALL 12 tracks from NVTB and 8 extras...for the same price!
The album is split in 4 sections..
STAGE 1:THE SINGLES
1.Anarchy in the UK - 10/10 -legendary punk song...so explosive with Rotten at his best.
2.God save the queen - 10/10 - Infamous song with great guitar riff...something that will go down in history books.
3.Pretty Vacant - 9.5/10 - Probably their most "pop" song...but listen out for the chorus! ( Va-c**t!)
4.Holidays in the sun - 9.5/10 - Another great song with a famtastic intro
STAGE 2:THE B SIDES
5.I wanna be me - 8/10 - Quality sounds poor but the song is still real gritty...very early pistols material.
6.Did you no wrong - 8/10 - Another good song...oroginally before Rotten arrived
7.No fun - 9/10 - Infamous for being played at winterland as the last song the band ever played live....."Ever feel like your being robbed?"
8. Satellite - 8.7/10 - Another early song with a great guitar riff...about the early satellite towns they toured
9.Don't give me no lip child - 9/10 - A cover of a Dave Berry song...Jones played with the wrong guitar strings but it sounded so good that they kept it.
10.(I'm not your)stepping stone - 7/10 - Doesn't appeal to me...worst on album in my opinion.
STAGE 3:NEVER MIND THE B**LOCKS
11.Bodies - 10/10 - One of my favs....Steve Jones is at his best here...also the only track that Sid Vicious probably appeared on....
12.No feelings - 9.5/10 - Glen sed it was their most "rock n roll" record....Rotten stands out as superb.
13.Liar - 8/10 - I fitting track wrote about their weasal manager
14.Problems - 9/10 - Simple track....still great.
15.Seventeen - 9/10 - A two-minute thrasher about the feelings of being 17 and not giving a f**k about anything
16.Submission - 8/10 - A slower than usual song to p**s off their manager again.
17.New york - 10/10 - Pistols on top form with an attack on the New York scene claiming to have created punk.
18.E.M.I - 10/10 - Fantastic track about being dropped by their record label....guitar riff is SO catchy...u gotta turn up the volume for this one!
STAGE 4:POST ROTTEN
19.My way - 7.8 - Sid vicious on vocals...he is poor trying to copy Rotten...but the song itself is famous within the punk world..
20.Silly thing - 10/10 - Paul Cook and Steve Jones on vocals..about Maclaren or Vicious...this shows that maybe they could have continued without John but it wasn't meant to be....
The album has 20 tracks on...not 18 like advertised...ENJOY!

Great review, you certainly know your stuff. I always thought Sid was a cop-out. Original 4 pistols were the best.

Glen Matlock wrote nearly every song here but gets no credit at all. Sid didn't play a note on bollocks, he couldn't play bass AT ALL and was a cartoon character they could have well done without. The biggest mistake they ever made was getting rid of the songwriter, how bloody stupid can you get.

Totally, 100% agree. Sid was a waste of rations and did them more harm than good.
