    Yin & Yang is an earth shattering 45 minutes of street urchin dub punk that not only reveals This Is PiL for the anti-climactic milquetoast sham that it was, but re-establishes the true soul of Public Image as it was originally intended by the vast sum of its initial parts.

    A weapons-grade blast from start to finish. [Jan 2013, p.113]

    Should these two musicians choose to continue their professional reengagement (and here's hoping they do), jettisoning the vocalists and second-rate John Cooper Clarke monologues in favor of the noisy anti-pop skank they helped invent might yet yield wondrous results. Less talk, more skronk.

    Wobble and Levene reunited for this brightly lit, muscly rock collaboration. [Dec 2012, p.79]

    Ying & Yang, ultimately, just sounds a bit matey. [Nov 2012, p.61]

    It is a pretty good document of Wobble’s and Levene’s still-sharp chops on their respective instruments, but not really a whole lot more than that.
