When it comes to songs, there's short and then there's too short. Still, it's a gas while it lasts.

Pink flag is a collection of short punk tunes, not all of them are great but its so short it will never make you wait.

From Sandrof1969 02/15/2018 19:19
Questo disco è una deflagrazione, un'esplosione di irruenza punk per una musica che tecnicamente proprio punk non è; canzoni mediamente di due minuti suonate con perizia, i Velvet Underground capitati in piena era punk, più o meno…

Very good. I immediately understood why this was influential.

A great album, wildly original, there is still nothing quite like it to compare to.

There isn't much to be said about this record other than it's an important landmark for punk

Pink flag, is one of those albums that would still be hailed as a masterpiece if it was released today. Wire obviously decided that the songs were going to be as long, or as in this case, as short as they need to be. One verse/one chorus is enough. It's punchy, energetic, and is still wonderfully fresh. Personally, I prefer, chairs missing, but this record is probably slightly more important and influential. A benchmark record.
