Credit Where Credit is Due

Everybody loves the old Billy Idol classics (if you admit it or not) but it is little known that he put an album out in '93 that opened to horrible reviews, Cyberpunk. The only single to release to radio off of Cyberpunk was Shock to the System, which is the worst song on the album. The album has long been an underground sensation, you can still hear Heroin and Neuromancer mixed in night clubs. This is by far my favorite work that Billy Idol has ever done and, in my opinion, is VERY underrated. It is rare that you find an album that you can listen to from beginning to end. If you take Shock to the System off, this album flows from beginning to end without a hitch. One song or another always ends up in the mix just about every time I make a play list. Enjoy.

(this is not the album version, it is a mix)
