What the fuck? Holy shit. Whoa hell. Umm, huh. Pretty cool. Structure is not. Sounds and textures are everywhere and they're weird. Listen to it, definitely. It might redefine music for you.

An album that is certainly unique, and there are definitely some enjoyable parts. But the worse parts really drag the album down, and altogether it's too meandering and minimalist for me to enjoy. I don't hate it as much as similar albums (Deceit and Suicide come to mind), but it's still not something I can envision myself listening to again. I guess overall this type of post punk is just too artsy and high brow for me.

I'm not sure I can dig this. Which is weird, because I love Suicide. Hey, it has its moments, but it feels like it's trying to be dark and brooding, and there's moments that come across as incredibly cacophonous, but the high moments made it a decent listen.

Still not sure what to make of this. Sounds like loads of people playing different songs at once. Quite mental. Beyond good and evil is a great track mind. File alongside trout mask replica, which is the only other album that springs to mind when I hear this. I don't think they quite created what they wanted. The rhetoric is better than the execution. PiL probably hit the mark better with metal box.

I don't think I understand it yet. There's a few good songs on there and some nice piano playing mixed in with some of the bat shit insane recordings, but other than that, it's hard to get into it.

A bad acid trip. This album ventures out into pretty frightening territory, while combining a vast variety of musical style. This is a complex nightmarish psychedelia. Listening will cause you to become tense, lost in darkness, paranoid.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS RECORD WHILE ON ACID!

'Y' is one of the most experimental, groundbreaking and revolutionary British albums to have emerged onto the music scene. The music on this album is truelly revolutionary - it is an agit-prop recording par-excellence which integrates elements of jazz, funk, rock, dub and classical music in the most primordial, intense, touching and vibrant of ways. The key tracks are 'Thief Of Fire', 'The Boys From Brazil' and 'Time We Are' which are full-bodied and aggressive slabs of dissonant funk, epileptic tribalism and vocals as ethereal as Buckley's and as ferocious as Beefheart's.

The sound on 'Y' remains as relevant a soundtrack for the human race in the year 2011 as it did on its release in 1979.
