There isn't much to be said about this record other than it's an important landmark for punk
Good, but the songs are way overlong!
Call it "Art Punk" call it experimental whatever, can't polish a turd in a genre that is pretty musically uninteresting to my ears. Wasn't around for this countercultural movement, maybe punk would have made more sense to me. I suppose it's influential to Brit Pop and therefore some of the 90's bands I do like but this on it's own isn't something that is particularly enjoyable to my ears nor is something I'll revisit past my requisite "3 listens before making a judgement" After trying Ramones, Sex Pistols, Television, and Wire, I suppose punk is not for me.
Favourite track: "Ex Lion Tamer" ; "Strange"
In my mind, this is possibly the best punk album ever released.
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.
Punk rock, Post Punk, and Art Punk all at once. Ahead of its time.
∆ is ∞
Pink Flag is an album almost any punk enthusiast should love, and one that even non-punks should be able to get into.
Too Many Songs! (That's not a bad thing)
