The Flowers of Romance is the third studio album by English experimental rock band Public Image Ltd, released on 10 April 1981 by record label Virgin. The first studio album recorded following the departure of founding bassist Jah Wobble, The Flowers of Romance found PiL delving further into an experimental sound. Flowers was recorded mainly by singer John Lydon and guitarist Keith Levene, both of whom made heavy use of percussion and various tape and processing effects.

Incidentally, Public Image Ltd were actually an incorporated company. This professionalism was a big fuck-off to punk’s chaos that had camouflaged how lead singer John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten, the former lead singer of the Sex Pistols) was being ripped off by the Pistols’ manager, Malcolm McLaren, financially and emotionally. The Flowers of Romance spat at their critics with intensity and twisted clarity. In Phenagen, Lydon stubbornly intones, Empty promises help to forget/No more, no more/Repair the damages you made/Amen, amen, amen, amen. He massacres the Mass as only a Catholic can, and the record’s pain might be a form of expiation, cathartic confession of damage done.

The Flowers Of Romance is the third studio album by Public Image Lt. released in the spring of 1981 by Warner Bros. Records in North America and Virgin Records elsewhere. With bassist Jah Wobble long gone from the band, and drummer Martin Atkins splitting his time between PiL and another band, Brian Brain, drums and percussion became the primary pulse of PiL’s music, replacing Wobble’s trademark reggae-influenced bass of the first two albums

As opposed to the axis of throbbing bass and guitar slashings of Metal Box, The Flowers of Romance is centralized on razor-sharp drums and typically haranguing vocals. No dubwise grooves here - bassist Jah Wobble was kicked out prior to the recording for ripping off PiL backing tracks for his solo material.

The Flowers Of Romance. Percussive 1981 album, recorded as a stripped-back trio. Includes "Flowers of Romance". PiL) (PUBLIC IMAGE LTD). The new Japanese import SACD of Public Image Ltd's THE FLOWERS OF ROMANCE has restored my faith in the format absolutely. This is the best sounding SACD I've heard since the Can discography. For this technology to hit its fullest potential, it requires music with a certain amount of space, music that uses silences - and, with the exception of the closing track, this album delivers that in spades.

Flowers of Romance then is a tricky album to pigeonhole. It features none of the features that made Public Image such a viable and strangely successful band, Jah Wobble is gone, instead leaving Keith Levene to take over any (extremely) minimal bass parts on the album, thus marginalizing Levene's own impact on the album, losing his influential and key sound, the wiry guitar of Metal Box. It does however feature all the things that make Public Image a great band, John Lydon's incandescent vocals somehow manage to seem enraged, twisted and blase at all times, his lyrics seemingly being. Flowers of Romance sounds utterly out of time with everything else in 1981, yet it fits perfectly in place amongst some of the other great releases.

Public Image Limited turned out to be a collapsing entity. First to go was bassist Jah Wobble. Rather than find a substitute for Wobble, the band soldiered on with drummer Martin Atkins banging his way to immortality
