Solid Gold is the second album by the British post-punk band Gang of Four, released in 1981. Two of its tracks, "Outside the Trains Don't Run on Time" and "He'd Send in the Army", are re-recordings of songs previously released as a single in the UK. The album was issued in an CD expanded version by the EMI Records and Infinite Zero Archive/American Recordings labels in 1995, which added the songs from Another Day/Another Dollar EP. Pitchfork listed Solid Gold as 24th best album of the 1980s.

Rousing Acerbic Brittle Fiery Paranoid Reflective Self-Conscious Urgent Visceral Cerebral Confrontational Cynical/Sarcastic Intense Literate Restrained Tense/Anxious. Gang of Four's existence had as much to do with Slave and Chic as it did the Sex Pistols and the Stooges, which is something Solid Gold demonstrates more than Entertainment! Any smartypants can point out the irony of a band on Warner Bros. railing against systematic tools of control disguised as entertainment media, but Gang of Four were more observational than condescending. True, Jon King and Andy Gill might have been hooting and hollering in a semiviolent and discordant fashion, but they were saying "think about it" more than "you lot are a bunch of mindless puppets.

Gang of Four were no different. Their debut Entertainment! provided a soundtrack to the political atmosphere at the time and can even be used today as a statement, from the politician hitting "I Found The Essence Rare" to the consumer-hungry in "Natural's Not In It". The subsequent release of their second album shows King & co. still have a few things to say. Although Solid Gold still follows its past, they only do so lyrically.

Gang of Four's initial artistic trajectory (pre-reunions) can best be defined as tragic. The original lineup went on to record Solid Gold and the Another Day/Another Dollar EP, which both count as towering releases in their own right.
