商品の紹介
Rolling Stone (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "THIS IS PIL proves that the taunting weaponry of his voice is still a delight, as he drawls out sylllables like an over-the-top TV villain." Uncut (p.67) - "[A] compelling listen. It wrestles with contradictions, sets off on seas of despair, spits like a camel and kicks like a mule." Billboard (p.48) - "The nearly seven-minute 'Lollipop Opera' is equal parts nonsense and brilliance, the greatest evidence that PiL can still be a musical force taking a jackhammer to pop music's boundaries." Kerrang (Magazine) (p.53) - "The songs ride skittering guitars and pulsing, understated grooves....This is far more challenging and seditious than any number of conservative retro-punk copyists." Q (Magazine) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album abounds with aquatic metaphors, reflections of the state of the nation and even thoughts of final extinction..." Mojo (Publisher) (p.80) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[O]verall, it's simply a joy to hear Lydon in fine voice, getting stuck into thorny matters with his own unique, raw-nerve gusto, backed by a cookin' band."

Personnel: John Lydon (vocals); Lu Edmonds (guitar); Bruce Smith (drums). Audio Mixer: James Towler. Recording information: Wincraft Studios, Cotswolds (2011). Enabled by the expiration of obstructive contracts and a little income from an appearance in a butter ad, John Lydon revived PiL in 2009. Consisting of alums Bruce Smith (1986-1990) and Lu Edmonds (1986-1988), along with bassist Scott Firth, Lydon's band toured steadily from December 2009 through 2011 and released this, its first album since 1992's That What Is Not, in 2012. Those later set lists -- one of which was documented on ALiFE 2009 -- leaned heavily toward PiL's first two albums. Playing that material seems to have affected the sound of This Is PiL, though it is no attempt at replication. It's more like a stylistic evolution -- one that's easier on the average set of ears than the droning dread of the first album's "Theme" or the mangled dub of Metal Box's "Poptones." Firth's liquid throb replaces Jah Wobble's rumbling and penetrating basslines. Edmonds' flexible guitar style carries significantly less violence than Keith Levene's caustic slashing. Smith's rhythms are more intricate and musical than PiL's early thud-discoid "drummer by committee" approach. Lydon, sharp and direct as ever, shows occasional signs of softening, as heard in a handful of wistful lines laced through otherwise forceful songs like "One Drop" and "Human" ("I miss those roses, those English roses"). However, he sticks to his seething wordplay with far greater frequency. This is exemplified by the standout "Terra-Gate," a vivid rant with as much intensity as Metal Box's "Chant" ("Take what you make, what you hate, integrate, into hate, it's too late," etc.). It's one of the PiL's best albums. Just as important, it has as much attitude -- if somewhat tempered and pointed in some new directions -- as anything else Lydon has recorded. And it begins with a belch and ends with a wail. ~ Andy Kellman

レビュー
  • まさかのビッグ・ニュース! 昨年の〈サマソニ〉で圧巻のパフォーマンスを披露したジョン・ライドン率いるP.I.L.が、その来日時と同じ布陣で20年ぶりの新作を届けてくれた! ダムドの元メンバーであるルー・エドモンズがサイケデリックでソリッドなギターを掻き鳴らせば、かつてポップ・グループにも在籍したブルース・スミスがタイトで強靭なビートを叩き出し、さらに、スタジオ・ミュージシャンとしてOn-U周辺からスパイス・ガールズ作品まで幅広く関与してきたスコット・ファースが、ダビーな重たいベースでボトムをガッチリ固める。そんな強力なバックを従えて次々と言葉を吐き捨てていくジョン・ライドンは、年齢を重ねてより偏屈になった印象だ。いずれにせよ、This Is P.I.L. ! 最高!!
