What are the rest of you talking about this effort rules

"Okay anyone that listens to Solitaire off this release and still thinks that Lydon is not an incredible singer is just plan wrong. As Rolling stone said when they named Lydon best male singer for the Flowers of Romance release" he is truly the scarest sounding singer ever" Tie me to the link of that is just plan awesome. Okay this isn't the sex pistols they went away this was an attempt to make a new sound and this record made dancing cool for the aging punk in me. It was smart edgy and clever and yeah scary...Hey this is not a love song is a classic laugh at the whole make a love song and make a hit industry that Lydon tried to destroy. If you love music for the art and the evolution of a genre then you should love PiL and this record. Their best efforts are in order CD(I bought it as Album), this one here, and Flowers of Romance"
These are not love songs

"This is not the death of PiL that many fans are calling it. There are some great songs here. "1981" is cool - great drums, great lyric , reminds me of the Flowers of Romance album, which i love . "Tie me to the Length of That" has a spooky Vincent Price vibe to the lyric and vocal, and a welcome return to a hooky bassline. "The Order of Death", despite being featured in an episode of Miami Vice - uuuugh - is one the best Pil songs ever, its chants of "this is what you want, this is what you get" becoming more and more bitter and sarcastic the more they are repeated. Even the then-current Brit-funk experimentations of "Bad Life" and "This is Not a Love Song" cannot hold them back. They have an undeniable energy, despite their somewhat dated sound. This is, after all, 1983. And a sight better than Kajagoogo or A-ha."
Johnny Rotten * Genius

"This guy (Band PIL) John Lydon.
Musical genius in the way Captain Beefheart was/IS.
Listen to the strain in Solitaire!
Very MODERN , like Television's-Marque Moon......Great sound."
