Didn't heard it, yet. But I heard about it. They say it's relative "punky"?

Yes, "Rebell Yell" is cool! :D

I wouldn't call the album very 'punky'. It's typical Billy Idol stuff. No obvious 'ballads' either, though, so there's no new Sweet Sixteen or Eyes Without A Face on it. What it really lacks is the catchy song which 'makes' the album, which it could be remembered for. As I understand it, Scream has been released as the first single. Good choice, similar to Rebel Yell in style, but again, without the 'classic' potential. Solid work, seriously, but the tough guy act is really getting silly for a man of nearly 50. Whether it's enough for a comeback, I have no idea.

Billy Idol, eh? Wasn't he the guy with that song 'White Wedding'? That's about all I know of him. Well that and I heard something about him shaving his pubes because he can't stand them turning grey. :P

Sorry, but I don't believe you've never heard any of the songs I've already listed, or for example 'Flesh for Fantasy' which is very well-known, too. If you really think you've never heard of them, it's just because don't relate those songs to him - you've listened to them for sure.

Exactly. It's the guy that you will hear in a gay bar right after George Michael. ;)
