What a brilliant re-mastering. It now sounds like a real band playing real songs.

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).

Of all the PiL albums, this one probably comes closest to being the most conventional of all.

In the space of 14 years, PiL went from being an experimental, abstract group to a full-on rock band, resplendent with John's trademark cutting vocals.

This is a good album, full of biting lyrics, choppy chords and distinctive choruses. I personally prefer the 'Death Disco' - era band, but this is well worth a listen as it is one of their most accessible albums.

The jury remains out on the cover design!

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.

The usual fantastic, amazing, weirdo and powerful music of the great PIL! I bought all the remasterized CDs and the sound is much better, clean and clear. And the New covers and internal parts in the case are just great! Amazing music with Johnny Lydon! More metal than other CDs.

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.

A purely brilliant album from start to finish. If you call yourself a Punk and you don't own this album you're really just a boring sad hippie.
