This Canadian version lists the tracks in a different order on the label than on the sleeve
They were one of the most challenging and impressive bands to emerge from the British punk scene, railing against organized tools of politics and power disguised as entertainment media. They wanted to point this out to people, wanting to make listeners think about the world around them.
They did this in a style of their own with a semi-violent delivery used to grab the listener's attention...and boy did it work. The music on "Solid Gold" is almost an almighty row coupled with their thought provoking lyrics.
Gang of Four's second album is a far more jagged affair then their classic debut "Entertainment". Solid Gold is a much more bass and drum oriented record with Andy Gill's static slashing hoving above. Solid Gold has held up as my favorite GOF album.
This album is awesome. Much darker than Entertainment! musically, but also more varied. This one two punch is one of the best ever. Solid Golid is highly recommended.
