Yin & Yang my review

here's my quick review of the new Wobble & Levene album, as submitted to Amazon....

for a long time fans have wondered what would PIL have sounded like if the original line up had continued working together- Yin & Yang is your answer
A mixed bag of tracks that are exciting & challenging- FORGET X Factor - this is what real musicians sound like when they are working well together
Yin & Yang is the opening track, hardcore lyrics, great melody & wonderful guitar work
Strut is a great instrumental track to jam along to
Jags & Staffs is the Geezer's track- 9 minutes of musical ecstasy, everytime I listen to these tracks I think of Public Image Ltd at their best but the album is so much more than a PIL album (if not in name, definitely in its feel)
Mississipi is a track to play whilst driving in ya car in the sun, a happy, easy listening tune
Within You Without You is a very floaty (dare I say it, hippy, drug chilled tune)
Back on the Block is an instrumental that could have come from the Metal Box era- one of the greatet albums ever made in my opinion
Fluid is an example of what Wobble has been doing over the last decade- Dub, with a decent bit of brass to add a different level to his work
Vampires is an interesting sound, IT's NOT a reworking of the bootleg track that has done the rounds down the years- it changes the mood of the album, just when you think you know how the rest will sound, this one sits you back up paying attention, not letting you fall into a Dub stupor
Understand could be the single release of the album, a reggae feel with a great vocal performance by Nathan Maverick
then the album finishes off with Understand Dub- says it all really!
Overall this is an interesting album, very well worked & put together- not predictable & certainly different to what other artists are putting out- grab a copy, it's worth every single penny. Wobble & Levene are legends- this proves it
