PUBLIC IMAGE LTD / 9 (1989)

From avant-garde art to pop to dance… I have to give Lydon credit for having a career so diverse but this incarnation of PiL leaves me bored and unsatisfied.  It’s a half-breed dribbling poodle, not a pedigree wolf with bite that it used to be.  It’s almost the same line-up as the previous album which was a first for the revolving door band, and while it's better than that previous effort it's still sub-par for the PiL name.  Expect bland pop tunes that no longer stand apart from the norm, with the exception of Lydon's voice.
