Digitally remastered edition of the Gang of Four's second album. They were one of the most challenging and impressive bands to emerge from the British punk scene, railing against organized tools of politics and power disguised as entertainment media. They wanted to point this out to people, wanting to make listeners think about the world around them. They did this in a style of their own with a semi-violent delivery used to grab the listener's attention... and boy did it work. The music on "Solid Gold" is almost an almighty row coupled with their thought provoking lyrics. This unlikely combination actually crafted tunes that are often catchy and danceable. This special reissue includes the tracks that were released in between this and their third studio album, the "Another Day Another Dollar" EP that includes the hit "To Hell with Poverty" and live versions of "Cheesburger" and "What We All Want". The New Wave at it's highest brilliance.

of the time. It doesn't. A more accurate statement is how we act changes how we think. Thought is unverbalized speech and not a tangible thing, It can not cause things. Enough philosophy though. This album is awesome. Much darker than Entertainment! musically, but also more varied. This one two punch is one of the best ever. Solid Golid is highly recommended with the brilliant Another Day/Another Dollar.
The material's less intricate than on the preceeding LP, and the lyrics maybe a bit less sharp, but they still sound great (infused here by dub reggae, and PIL's bass-driven meanderings). It's must-hear and it rocks and swings hard. The bonus tracks here are quite worthwhile, and I think the live version of "What We All Want" is quietly massive.
