The Ideal Copy is the fourth studio album by the English rock group Wire Mute Records released the album. The person who gave this album 1 star because it's too 'repetitive' should realize that the only song that he does like 'still shows' is the most repetitive song on this album. Anyway, I absolutely love this album, and not just because I love the band. Every song on this album is unique and very well-composed. Although I don't care much for 'Madman's Honey' all the rest of the tracks are wonderful, including the many bonus tracks (the amount of bonus tracks equals that to the original album)

154 is the third album by the English post-punk band Wire, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music) on EMI imprint Harvest Records in the UK and Europe and Warner Bros.
