I write this to contradict that of our friend from the Czech republic and give this record some of the gravity it deserves.
OK, commercially Killing Joke never achieved the sales of some of their contemporaries, but in terms of importance, this album serves to bring you examples of why they were as important as PIL, Gang Of Four and a number of other undersold bands of the day.
You may well be better served buying their individual albums, expecially the first three superb releases, but this should serve you if you just want to dip your toe in their icy dark water.
From the abrasive beginnings, Killing Joke went on a journey into some dark and wonderful places. From the searing 'The Wait', Wardance' and 'Requiem' onwards through 'Empire Song' you feel unsettled yet drawn into their world of terrifying reality.
It's worthy of note to understand that without Killing Joke, there would be no NIN, 'Come as you are' would never have been written (hear Eighties) and many of Depeche Modes darkest moments could not have taken shape.
These tracks well and truly stand the test of time. If you're not convinced, buy it, then the recent 25th anniversary live album and enter their world. You will not be dissapointed.

Format: Audio CD
A decent but imperfect introduction to the world of Killing Joke, concentrating on some of their more abrasive material (especially on the earlier tracks) rather than their more accessible stuff, which could be misleading to the first-time 'Joke' listener.
This is more of a generic overview of the Joke's material between 1979-1990 rather than a greatest hits / best of collection (they only had one real hit with Love Like Blood, which made #16 in 1985).
The omission of great tracks such as Are You Receiving, Complications, The Wait, A New Day, Rubicon (and absolutely nothing from the great Fire Dances album) is surprising. Perhaps this was through lack of space although there are a number of somewhat limited tracks here, such as Butcher, Exit and Unspeakable, which show KJ at their post-punk musical extreme. A double-CD compilation would have done proper justice to their generally fantastic work.
Nevertheless, with gems such as Turn To Red, Follow The Leaders, Love Like Blood, Eighties and Wintergardens all present and correct, this is certainly a pretty good place to start.

Killing Joke are very much underrated in my opinion and this compilation serves as an example of how powerful their music could be. It covers their early to middle period with a selection of mostly album tracks (they weren't really a singles band).

Their early post punk material is excellent mixing tribal drums, catchy bass lines and intense blasts of guitar noise to dramatic effect. Geordie's guitar playing is just incredible and I've not heard anything quite like it anywhere else. These early tracks have an intensity and atmosphere that really impress.

The mid eighties period showed them flirting with the charts and making more commercial and accessible music. Although not as powerful as the early period it did result in the rather excellent "Love Like Blood" which was probably their biggest "hit". The compilation ignores the unpopular "Outside the gate" album but that's no loss.

By the late eighties they'd become more aggressive placing more emphasis on the guitar once more. This style led onto what they've been doing for the last decade or so leaning more towards metal than alternative rock.

It's an old compilation and a more comprehensive career spanning collection is probably overdue but it does cover, in my opinion, their best period. My only criticism is that there are no tracks taken from the "Fire Dances" album which is a shame as it's one of their strongest releases.

Killing joke I thought, I remember them. I liked them back in the day when I wasn't too sensible and in an age when everything seemed more simple. Yeah I'll have that I thought and it was well worth the purchase. ALL OF THE OLD STANDARDS ARE HERE. I think Empire Song was my fav, back then so I still slant towards it again.
I'll tell you the stary about how I ended up buying this album. I was actually looking through the latest charts; don't ask me why I was doing this; I am not a supporter of modern stuff or the crap they now come out with on radio 1. But I noticed an album by Killing Joke in that chart and not selling too badly either. I wondered what it would sound like since I remembered the old band but thought I had bought an album or two and purhaps a single (Empire Song) but that was about it. Anyway I bought the album, enjoyed it then went on to buy a few more of the old albums which are now available as downloads and are a lot better quality than the old LP's.
Try Killing Joke and you might pleasently be surprised.

Killing Joke ARE the Eighties,so much so they even recorded and released a song about the decade! Probably authorized by the Joke,a great start to this with 'Turn to Red 1979' and taking you for a journey thru all the crucial 80's post-punk favourites! 'till the end track,being 1990,and what more by ending this on 'Age of Greed' at over 7 mins. Perfect. Nice price!..Oh and Jaz..there is not going to be any "Nuclear WAR" HA!
