Remastered version. 'Metal Box', PIL's second album, arrived in stores in 1979, packaged in a metal can modelled after a film canister. The expensive album, slightly re-sequenced and refitted with a traditional sleeve, was re-released the following year as Second Edition. The 11-minute 'Albatross' opens the proceedings, centred upon powerful bass punctuated by spiky guitars. 'Poptones' brings Lydon's vocals to the forefront of the mix as he delivers an elliptical lyric about being driven into the woods and executed while the tune in question plays on the car radio. Far from a cheerful album, Second Edition highlights some of wobble's most expressive bass playing alongside lydon's patently off-kilter vocal style and aggressively anti-social lyrics.
