Never Mind The Bollocks is totally worth having on keepsake vinyl. So much has been said about Punk and so many boring rules have been laid - hearing this, the Grandaddy of them all, it's apparent what a punk rule breaker even this is. Far from being sloppy or inept Never Mind The Bollocks is taut with riffing focused energy and very, very tight. This is not contrite lazy indie rock or any other impenetrable alt/snob rock derivative but a totally lucid, ferocious 1970s Rock Album with a set purpose and a unique, amazing sound. Chris Thomas, Roxy Music's producer, heard the future of rock and roll in the Sex Pistols' raw demos and steered the band into sonic timelessness. There's no denying the producer's role here - this album has power for the ages because it is both professional sounding AND real. Of course the band gets credit - all of them. As John Lydon later sang with PIL: "Anger is an energy". 'Tis indeed. This album remains an absolutely exhilarating rush many years after it was first recorded and vinyl was the way it was meant to be heard. The packaging of this vinyl re-release is identical to the original, right down to the 'Sub-Mission' sticker on the back and blue xerox-style inner sleeve. Five stars, easy.
