Public Image Ltd. - Metal Box

The Review

I have never been quite sure what I think of Public Image Ltd. There are some potentially great tracks on this album I just can't help feeling they would have been better with someone other than John Lydon singing them. It's not that I don't like Lydons voice I think it worked great for the Sex Pistols just not here.

I only realised this was my problem with the album when I found myself picking an instrumental as my favourite track.

Favourite Track: Graveyard

Why Does This Review Exist?

I am working my way through Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time list and reviewing each album.

  • Each album is listened to only once.
  • The album is used as background music while working so how much attention I pay to it will depend on what I am doing at the time.
  • I do no research about the album or the artist.
  • The review is a one off, one moment opinion that may change with further listening.
