4.0 out of 5 stars good in its own right! 17 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
i can't believe all the fuss there is over this isn't all that different to the previous 2 albums-melodic pop with an edge,as for jaz saying about singing in tune he sang in tune on nightime and even more in tune on btats!!!!apart from the song "america"which is way too commercial for me all the rest are cracking tunes with excellent rythyms and not as poppy as people will tell you-it's just good wouldn't do if all their albums were the same anyway.i can listen to any of their albums and see it for what it is-stop labelling bands!

5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally Underrated 4 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
There has always been much argument amongst KJ fans as to whether this should have been a KJ album at all or a Jaz/Geordie side-project. I couldn't care less really. I just think it's a great album, though I don't think it's ever really been received that well. I've been a Killing Joke fan since 1981 and I don't think they've ever done anything as moving or beautiful as some of the songs on Outside The Gate (except for Exile and Goodbye To The Village from BTATS). My Love Of This Land, Tiahuanaco and the title track Outside The Gate (now there's a powerful song) complete with it's plaintive piano/acoustic guitar outro, are just sublime. This re-mastered release doesn't really add much to the original release except for the previously unreleased Mayday which has gone down as one of my favourite KJ tracks. The one downpoint to this release is that it doesn't have Stay One Jump Ahead: Extended Mix on it. It's a shame that this album caused KJ to split and cause so much bitterness. But KJ wouldn't be KJ without such tensions. Ignore at your peril!

4.0 out of 5 stars Definately a grower 7 Feb 2008
By M Evans
Format:Audio CD
A very strange album, and not immediatley accesible, but after several listens I've decided I do like this album. It's aged very well, it's quite atmospheric and sticks in your head for quite a long time afterwards. The only song I'm not keen on is The Calling which is a bizarre rant of a song with little melody to it. Not in the same league as Night Time or Brighter Than 1000 Suns, but a very inventive album and hugely underrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten & unfairly maligned classic 6 May 2008
By Mick L
Format:Audio CD
There is much dislike for this album. Joke fans will know that it was meant to be either a Jaz Coleman solo album or Coleman/Walker album but the record company insisted on it being released as Killing Joke due to the high production costs. However, Killing Joke lovers should not disregard this CD as it fills an important dvelopment gap between Brighter Than A Thousand Suns and Extremities.

Brighter is for me Joke's worst album - dull eighties twaddle with songs that are hard to distinguish between (although the new CD with the proper mixes on it is superior to the previous release.) All of the eight original Gate tracks are different in style to each other and very interesting to experience.

"America" kicks off the album and Coleman's left wing sympathies shine through in this critique of US values and attitudes. "I can survive the rat race honey" he declares in a repeated verse and the song finishes on "Showbiz and Hollywood still shouted out - America." Such a song points towards Age of Greed on Extremities in which Joke take this anger to the logical conclusion. There was little on Brighter Than A 1000 Suns that signposted any such intentions.

"My Love of This Land" is a beautiful song of nostalgia for the England of youth; "Memories of gentlemen and cricket fade away in the hot summer" evokes in the mind times gone by when, as children, we had beliefs in our nation that have been since soured by world politics and cynicism.

Yes, "Stay one jump ahead" has rap (and yes it is Wham style rap rather than Tupac) but this lasts for about 20 seconds and in terms of the album flies by. Attacks on paying for healthcare and the encouragement to own property are dealt with in a way that makes up for any shortcomings in the track elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad at all! 10 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Yeh, why not?! A complete contrast to the early 80s output, but still satisfying. The bonus tracks make this release even more worthwhile. Think of this album as quite progressive, and very dissonant in places (outside the gate springs to mind).
Think of the release as something more like a Jaz/Geordie side-project and you will not be dissapointed. In some ways, this release is quite similar to BTATS, so, if you liked that, why not try this?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough with Commonplaces 18 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm so tired in continuing to hear "Outside The Gate" is the worst Killing Joke album I'm beginning to believe it myself.
If you evaluate any Killing Joke album on a mere instrumental skill and brilliance you are completely missing the point on what KJ have been and of their enormous importance, not just on a simply musical viewpoint.
Maybe the arrangements, the quality, the originality, whatever, on this album are not up to the ones in the others (although in my ignorance about playing instruments I don't agree at all) but taken as an overall thing, "Outside" is a portray of the world, dateline 1988, as any other KJ album has been.
Okay, part of it is centered around criticism of American culture and society, but any "smart" sociologist/philosopher, darn intellectual should listen to it 77 times befor even thinking to write an "essay".
The lyrics of "America", "Stay One Jump Ahead" and especially "Obsession", deliver a fiery forecast of the recent times in a straightforward rage. Just listen to "Obsession" and look a bit back to see in perspective what religious fanatism and economy-obsession have "produced" recently.
Only The The's musical genius has been able to convey with such mood and intensity the blindess of religious fanatism and tension as opposed to a true search for God (mostly in their 1986 release, "Infected", and the subsequent "Mind Bomb", from 1989)
Besides, the album, together with the masterpiece "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns" and their "commercially succesful" "Night Time", with all their pop-flavored "travesty" is the perfect platform to welcome aboard new listeners and fans which does not like heavy hard-rock/metal treatments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much maligned and underrated.
Excellent and thoughtful lyrics, plus a host of extra material on this re-release make this a worthy addition. Ahead of its time.

5.0 out of 5 stars mixed bag but...
Tiahuanaco gives the album 5 stars alone. My love of this land another fine tune. Admittedly far too poppy album overall.

1.0 out of 5 stars A logical progression, but an unsatisfying result
Apart from the occasional flourish by guitarist Geordie, this was more of a Jaz Coleman solo album than a Killing Joke one. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars For (very) devoted fans only!
The closest thing to a turkey that KJ have ever produced, I would only recommend this as the last album in the collection, worse than the rather uneven effort Democracy. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother!
This isn't Killing Joke. It is Jaz Coleman indulging his symphonic tendencies but with terrible synths. Geordie's guitar is poorly produced and the songs are weak. Read more
