    I have recently become addicted to listening to Public Image Ltd - Metal Box, to the point where I listen to it walking home from work, listen to it in the gym and then listen again on the walk into work. I am utterly smitten by the 'sound' of the album (I would be more than happy if it was instrumental).

    The poll is 4 of my all time favourite records - all released between 1978 -1980. I was born in 1971, which means that John Peel mananged to positively influence a child of 7-9 years old to love some edgy, some might say, negative sounds.

    I absolutely love all 4 of these albums and could not contenance being parted from them. i permanently have ripped to both my mobile phone and my MP3 player (just in case of battery issues).

    I think I might be a little obsessed ...

    I have a Devo album, and a few singles. PiL were good too, I have "Paris in the Spring" (though I haven't listened to it in about 12 yrs!!!!). I had Metal Box in the Metal Box, but I don't seem to have it any more. Odd that....:sad:

    OT - If your location (In A Rut) means what I think it means - The Crack is actually one of my favourite albums of all time - it is also an album which I never leave the house without.

    Doesn't count as post-punk. Post-pub at best, I think

    It does. You're the only person ever to notice it.

    Fantastic band - I still have pristine 7" singles. Something That I Said is so intricately connected to a point in my life that it makes me cry!
