Editorial Reviews

Limited four vinyl LP box set. Super deluxe edition of Public Image Limited's seminal second album, originally released in November 1979. Housed in an embossed metal box, this edition includes rare and unreleased mixes from the recording sessions, along with B-sides and BBC sessions, a live recording from a now legendary unplanned show at Factory Records Russell Club in Manchester arranged on the day of a Granada TV appearance and exclusive posters and art prints. With all lyrics written by John Lydon, Metal Box was recorded with original PiL members Keith Levene and Jah Wobble. Original drummer Jim Walker had left, to be replaced by a succession of drummers. Metal Box came out less than a year after PiL's debut Public Image: First Issue yet it was nothing like it's predecessor. Things had changed, and so had PiL. While outside pressures mounted, PiL channeled their energies (negative and positive) into a record that would set them apart back in 1979, and indeed today in 2016. Whether it be John's powerful and passionate vocals; Keith's wailing guitar and melodic synths; Wobble's sub-disco reggae basslines; or the crashing rhythm that holds it all together, Metal Box has many strengths. The album was originally released as 3 x 45 rpm 12" singles, housed in a metal 'film' canister. As made by The Metal Box Company in London's East End; hence the name.
