Exremities, Dirt and Various Repressed Emotions

Killing Joke - CD - Rating: 8/10

It took Martin Atkins pounding drums to knock some sense back into Jaz Coleman. The band conscientiously returned to its more brutal side to atone for Outside the Gate. At the time of its release, this CD was ranked as one of the band’s best, but it hasn’t aged that well. There are a bit too many nods to the industrial rock bands that KJ inspired and the record seems dated. Still, if you were a fan of industrial, you will like this.
