The trail of Public Image Limited is littered with brilliant shards of song, and GREATEST HITS is the perfect introduction to the band's varied sounds. This collection covers PIL's early nods toward punk rock--in "Public Image," where singer John Lydon's snarls, "You never listen to a word that I said"--and several bite-sized chunks of SECOND EDITION's disturbing art-rock. The disc also features the band's stunning flirtation with dance-chart success, "(This is Not a) Love Song," and their smooth transition into alternative rock ("Seattle"), and beyond ("Warrior.")
With stops along the way at two of PIL's best songs, "The Flowers of Romance" and "Rise," GREATEST HITS touches on nearly all of the band's high points. "Don't Ask Me" even caps off the record with a cheerful admonishment to be sure to recycle! This from the man who wrote "Death Disco" for his dying mother and swore, in "Home," that "Better days will never be."
