50th Anniversary reissue with gatefold sleeve + bonus tracks as DL. A hugely influential album cited as the embryo for punk, grunge and beyond.

A thinking man's rumination on alienation, the album is a game of two halves; side one tackling the thermo nuclear threat while side two traces riches to rags alienation in everyday London.

First of a trio of ground-breaking albums that steered the band from the Blues into a heavier, more prog-based sound and a true reflection of their much-praised live sound.
