5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth buying 6 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
The whole title and packaging of this CD looks unpromising (I mean "Spanish Sessions" ???).
Don't let that put you off as it has nothing to do with Spain other than it was recorded there - this is a top-notch run through of some of their best tracks by the newly-reformed lineup.
The mixes are a bit like session versions, ie a bit raw, but isn't that what we all want from KJ anyway ? They are loud, hard and relentless !
I can't see how any fan could be disappointed with this album; buy one and play it to teenage metal fans to show them what REAL hard sounds like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic KJ 22 Dec 2008
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I just go through the first listening of this one and can heartily recommend it. It's a sampling of classic KJ tracks, mostly ones that they have played on their 2008/2009 tour. The previous reviewer describes the quality as "a bit raw" which doesn't really do them justice. They sound more like live recordings but without the audience, so if you DID miss the recent tour, this should make up for it in some way (but not entirely - the London gigs were awesome!).

The listing is impeccable. Requiem is stately, Tension is tense, Whiteout frantic, Pssyche psychotic, and Pandemonium is... well... demonic. The one track I'd take issue with is Love Like Blood, which (on the first pass at least) sounds pretty much like all the previous versions of this superb song - superb indeed, but offering nothing new. That one (minor) blip is why I didn't give the album six stars (what? haven't you found the secret "Sixth Star" button?) although it's also more than made up for by the raucous "Are You Receiving?" which is one of the best KJ tracks that I only have one version of (until now, that is).

Looking forward to the promised new album in January...

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Picking Up Even If Casual Killing Joke Fan 31 Dec 2012
By T.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a hardcore KJ fan, have all the albums, seen them many times through the decades...

This release is a sort of live in the studio re-recording of many of the bands best early songs. It was recorded during rehearsals for their reunion tour in 2008 and features the four original members (Jazz, Geordie, Youth and Big Paul).

The album has it's pros and cons...

Pros are many of the songs have a totally raw, rough, in-your-face feel that even the many live albums they've released have failed to capture. Clearly recorded in a small studio with no overdubs pretty much straight off the mixing desk, it sounds like they are playing in your living room and Geordie's guitar has never been more up front in the mix. The song selection is pretty steller, concentrating on the early 80's albums and the Pandemonium album. There's some really excellent takes on several songs (Primitive, Bloodsport and a punkish "Eighties").

Cons are really subjective - the sound *is* rough which may be off-putting to some listeners and there's what appears to be tape stretch resulting in the sound clipping and breaking in a few instances, notably during "Millenium." This album has a DIY feel to it for better or worse.

Minor caveats aside, this release comes highly recommended.
