The most 'listenable' album – easy entry level listening.,

Whilst I like all of Pil's back catalogue, some of it can come as a bit of a surprise if people are expecting anything like the Sex Pistols from John Lydon. He was desperately trying to avoid that. Sometimes earlier on, he maybe tried too hard, and that could alienate a lot of listeners.
'Album' is a nice, tight album with some very 'hummable' riffs and tunes on it. The production was strong and the remastering lifts it even more. If people haven't listened to Pil before but are interested, this is a good album to get first. It has some of the poppier elements to it, but also some of Lydon's typical droning vocals, and word repetition that might stand you in good stead to go looking further back through their work.
