Favorite Albums - Almost Made It (20 music items)

"God bless the late/great Poly Styrene, one of the most original and individualistic leaders in rock history, for releasing this whacky, wonderful piece of danceable punk rock into the world. She envisions a world obsessed with consumerism, disposability, and a profound lack of authenticity, and manages to make all of her volcanic polemics sound like cartoony riffs. What a loss it was when she passed away at 53 to breast cancer in 2011, but this album keeps her fierce-but-feminine mystique and un"

Led by the volcanic Poly Styrene, the opera-trained daughter of a Somalian father and a Scottish-Irish mother, the group merged conceptual brilliance with inventive rhythms. It's hard to overstate how muc"

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Obsessed with the modern world and plastic in all its forms, Poly Styrene was one of punk’s most intriguing bandleaders. X-Ray Spex back her witty, phlegm-laden singing here with British punk’s most cartoony riffing. Standout track: “The Day the World Turned Day-Glo”"
