The end of Pigsty, on Ringleader, represents the beginning of a creative nadir for me. Something is Squeezing my Skull sounded like a brilliant reawakening.His worst album ever. All You Need Is Me is his worst song ever. When YOR came out, I thought it was all over. I don’t care about his political views, but this appalling album nearly led me give up on him.
Thankfully, the subsequent four albums have all had some quality material.
I enjoy Refusal because I see it as a re-emergence. And it anticipates (in its direction) World Peace which is a great, great, record.
