"for some reason, its trendy to say this album is disappointing, and that the band hates it themselves, but thats not true. the band has hard feelings about it only because it was a tense time period within the band.
the songs are good. good old stooges- and ramones-influenced punk rock. better than the other 1977 albums by the clash, sex pistols, and wire. up there with the ramones and the damned's debut. the production is fine. It's similar to the first album, except that there arent any slower creepy songs like feel the pain or fan club. but its not a different style. If you really like the debut, you'll really like this, simply because brian james wrote almost all the debut album, and he wrote almost all of this album. ignore the reviews that say this is a disappointment. because its not. This album's music has withstood the test of time unlike the pistols or the clash. you can hear where the offspring and other later punk bands were just ripping off ideas from this album. great album. buy it."
Lot of could of been's. Awful production hurts.

"Ok, so the cd isn't all that great, but there are a few essential tracks on it and a few could be greats. My three personal favorites are the trash cover of the Beatles "Help", arguably the best thing on the CD and "Alone" and "Creep(You Can't Fool Me)" were the best two off the original album. While "Politics", "Strecher Case", "Sick of Being Sick"(which was turned great on the sessions CD) and "You Know" all had potential. The main problem with the CD is Nick Mason's production which is horrible(rumor has it he didn't know what the band really wanted) and the new edition of Lu didn't add much(although he did a much better job with Public Image Limited a little while later). Right before the album was released Rat Scabies was kicked out and after the album was released the band temporarly broke up and disowned the album. However, they have released worse items(Phantasmagoria and Anything come to mind) and it could actually be less accessable and harder than their first but the production really hurts it."
Bah and add a half star

"I dont see what the problem is besides maybe the lyrics of dont cry wolf and who got the production credit . Other than that nothing to be ashamed of. Worth it alone for the b-side cover of help and the bonus single sick of being sick"
