5.0 out of 5 stars Jaz and Co. Create Another Classic! 2 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"I can't think of a single Killing Joke album that hasn't been traumatic!" - Jaz Coleman, 2012.

Well, this one doesn't break the mould! A typically harrowing album of apocalyptic visions, modern concentration camps, the destruction of human emotion, corporate corruption and the immorality of man. In short, not for the faint of heart. Mind you, Killing Joke have never been a normal band, more of a cult, and their Lyrics have always been, to some ears downbeat - though to others, a worryingly real possibility. In recent years, they've been particularly furious - in 2003 after a 7 year hiatus they released Killing Joke, Jaz's venomous vocals this time even more violent sounding than before, three albums later, and the anger is still apparent - possibly slightly less intense than it was 9 years ago, but with just as much impact.

For those who are judging The Joke's latest work on the album's single, In Cythera, don't - though this album is the second with the original line up since Youth's departure in '82, they haven't gone soppy with age, as 2010's Absolute Dissent showed. Whereas In Cythera's comparatively honeyed tones are fairly reminiscent of the 1985 mega hit Love Like Blood or

5.0 out of 5 stars Album Of The Year So Far 2 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's hard to put this into a long winding review, or to sit and try and describe each song. This musical journey is yours alone, and you will hear these songs differently to me. One thing should be said however - this is an outstanding album.

I always see Killing Joke as a band that over such a long career have always delivered in one way or another. They may have sounded different on many occasions; experimented and evolved, but they always put out consistently good music.

But this album is something else. This is their best effort in a long time, built on the strong foundation of the previous album and the 2003+ resurgence.

Killing Joke, although around for 30+ Years, may be in their best form in these later years and may have just released one of their best albums of all time. This album is a fantastic effort from a group of extremely talented musicians, and deserves every glowing review. Fans will not be disappointed.

Buy this album, keep this band going, because judging on recent and specifically this effort, we cannot show enough appreciation. Long live the joke.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review from a "non" fan 14 April 2012
By Big Jim TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I may be wrong but I believe all of the previous reviews are from folk who would consider themselves fans of the band, to lesser or greater extents. I am not. Sure I've been aware of them but never felt the need to actively go out and buy something they have produced. I have now. This album has succesfully crossed over to a "casual" listener. This may dismay fans who want to keep the likes of me out of the gang as I cannot possibly relate to what the band are about but believe me, if you feel like this then you are missing the point. I like great music. This album has great music on it, heartfelt lyrics, bombast by the ton and rocks like a b@stard. I will immediately set to listening to the back catalogue and see if I finally "get" it - only thirty odd years too late for some.

5.0 out of 5 stars magnificent !!!! 5 April 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
my twopenneth...

this album is quite simply stunning - stark, dark, beautiful and strangely hopeful.

the only complaint i have is that 'on all hallow's eve' is too short.

i have followed the band since the very early 80's and MMXII has just swept me away.

I have said elsewhere that i find it amazing that out of all the bands from my youth Killing Joke are the only ones to have survived and the maturity evident here just makes me feel doubly blessed.

i am buying a copy for all my friends

breathtaking !!!

bravo

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential listening. 3 April 2012
By Mr. M. L. Hawes VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Writing a review as a fan of over 20 years always makes life, difficult. Being partial to the band you've seen most, listened to most and loved most of all, makes it tricky to speak from the standpoint of a new listener.
However, here goes:

Killing Joke are one of Britains finest bands. For the past 30 years, they have toiled away producing albums all of which have relevance with the times they were produced in. Embodying the spirit of post punk, combining the dark shadows of Joy Duvision with the lyrical dexterity and relevance of Penny Rimbaud and then somehow finding new ground with every release is something incredibly rare in a band of this longevity.

With MMXII, Killing Joke have made an album completely in tune with the knife edge mood of the day. Social references abound, observations on the influence of bankers, corporate greed and impending climatic doom may not sound like the perfect tea time listening but really, this is a colossal work embodying the best of every wonderful album this band has ever released.

Somehow, Killing Joke have moved on, remained relevant where others have become almost parody, a tribute to their past. They know how to write motivating music, songs which you'll turn to as reference as you would a fine work of political observation and that is where my love of this band lives. In knowing that somehow, through this madness, this age of greed, this implosion of creeds, that someone out there can see things as I do.

They just keep on getting better and better.

And by the way, this is an album, not a work to break down into pieces. There is dark and light, heavy and delicate. Save yourself that money you were going to spend on a chinese takeaway or that copy of the latest Coldplay album that will gather dust in a day or two and buy something that you'll love and play again and again.
