Critically Acclaimed Second Album!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 461/500!

Metal Box was the second album by Public Image Ltd, released by Virgin Records on November 23, 1979. The album was retitled Second Edition in the U.S. The album was a departure from PiL's relatively conventional debut First Issue, released in 1978, with the band moving into a more avant-garde sound characterized by John Lydon's cryptic vocals, Jah Wobble's propulsive dub-inspired basslines, and the abrasively "metallic" guitar sound developed by guitarist Keith Levene. Second Edition (Metal Box) is widely regarded as a landmark of post-punk. In 2003, the album was ranked number 461 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

"It's a hallmark of uncompromising, challenging post-punk, hardly sounding like anything of the past, present, or future...what they achieved with their second record is a completely unique hour of avant-garde noise." -Andy Kellman, allmusic.com

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Features:
• Super High Material Super Audio CD
• SHM-SACD Stereo SACD Layer
• Single-Layer Stereo SHM-SACD, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
• Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
• Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
• This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player! It will NOT play on conventional CD Players!

1. Albatross
2. Memories
