Public Image Ltd – Second Edition 12″ Vinyl 2xLP

$24.99

by Public Image Ltd

The second album from JOHN LYDON’s post-SEX PISTOLS group is widely considered to be their magnum opus. Combining such diverse influences as krautrock, dub, post-punk, and the avant-garde, Second Edition is four sides of harsh and uncompromising, yet danceable, music. While not the immediate influence and sensation that Never Mind The Bollocks was, this record is certainly John Lydon’s finest artistic achievement.

“a near-perfect record that reinvents and renews rock in a manner that fulfilled post-punk’s promise(s) to a degree rivaled only by Joy Division on Closer.” —Pitchfork

“It’s a hallmark of uncompromising, challenging post-punk, hardly sounding like anything of the past, present, or future.” —AllMusic
