Don't expect “pop” music. This groundbreaking 1979 debut album, along with works by The Fall, Wire, and PiL, announced the start of postpunk: a genre best known for incorporating other genres as seen fit. Y displays more of The Pop Group's dub influence than their later material. Yet several songs here—“She Is Beyond Good and Evil” (later a live favorite of St. Vincent), “Thief of Fire,” “Bloody Money,” and “We Are Time”—are among their best known and most iconic, instructing a new world of musicians on how to fuse elements of reggae, free jazz, Captain Beefheart, funk, and political rhetoric for their own ends.
