"If you liked Public Image Ltd. when they were good (with Keith Levene & Jah Wobble)..but thought they could be a little more "out there" and perhaps more "cheerful and fun" without John Lydon's insistant whine..this album is for you..a document of when punk/dub/experimental/pop stuff meshed into one...this album is a complete listening experience..and what a joy it is..all the tracks are highlights..especially "pineapple," "today is the first day.." "betrayal," "dan mcarthur," and the HILARIOUS "dreak lock don't deal in wedlock" with don letts of Big Audio Dynamite fame..BUT IT NOW..It's priced to sell like hotcakes!"

"I probably would have liked this more in 1980 than now. Wobble effectively establishes a personna - a fun-loving cheerful guy with a sense of humor who is musically playful. It is at core very different from PIL's style of dour serious pseudo-artistry.
There are good moments on here. "Betrayal" is very catchy and punchy, and actually prefigures the sound on the great "Full Circle" material he recorded a bit later with Czukay and Liebezeit. "Blueberry Hill" is odd but rocks okay in a PIL-ish way, with Wobble playing "The Suit"'s bassline behind the Fats Domino song as he warbles it. It's a lark. "Not Another" is one "stolen" from the PIL reels, it's a version of "Graveyard". "Tales From Outer Space" is a well-grounded ditty, fun stuff. Side 2 and most of the bonus tracks are slighter though.
Wobble completists may enjoy this - I think casual PIL fans might enjoy it even more though and find an entry point here into Wobble's music which I think in the end is the best thing to come out of PIL.
