It's easy to dismiss Billy Idol as a pop music sensation that faded away 20 or 30 years ago. But before he was Rebel Yelling on the US Billboard Chart, he was the singer in a real-life, British punk band: Generation X. There's nothing wrong with evolving with your art. He might still look like a parody of himself (appearing in the Wedding Singer didn't help) but his current record is clearly a new turn for him. His previous one 10 years ago was strong, but probably more resembled the old stuff from the 80s. He knows how to speed it up and return to punk form, and he knows how to slow it down but remain pure and deep. His name and hair might be fake, but his art moves to wherever the world takes him.
