5.0 out of 5 stars WET ME STRIDES 24 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this Killing Joke cd singles collection totally by chance,just bored and browsing.Obviously I have heard the name but up until this point never heard a note.Well from the moment Nervous System the first track kicked in I was quite simply floored by the immediacy of Joke.Blown away.
Musically,brilliant.Lyrics,amazing.Jaz Coleman within two songs rushed straight into my all important[though completely redundant to you]top five frontmen.There is a rather bitter,unfair review here calling this comipilation a cynical cash in,that review is shortsighted and unfair.And selfish.Not everyone has their whole catalogue already,not everyone was born in the 60s.Singles Collection is a GREAT readymade introduction to Killing Joke,i for one can already see an obsessive purchasing of previous work.Anything that opens up avenues for people to welcome and enjoy music they have not come across before should be encouraged,this is what helps bands build a legacy.
Oh I certainly don't mind a band who have worked hard on good work getting a few quid and from where I am standing with my little knowledge have not maybe received the credit due.To my sensibilities Joke should be a stadium band.
A great cd that I am happy to have taken a punt on and you will be if you are considering it.They just don't make bands like this anymore,bands that have something to say,bands that sound important,like they mean it.
I have written this only after reaching track 10 on cd one,a track called Eighties.
Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction for Newcomers 2 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
A good overview of Killing Joke's catalogue is long overdue. For a band who've been around for along as the Joke, and tried so many different styles over the years, there's been a real lack of good compilations up until now. Before this, your best bet for a KJ comp would have been the solid, but pretty flawed Laugh? I Nearly Bought One! which featured most of bare bones essentials but very little else (plus it abruptly ended at about 1988, leaving off all their other work) or the frankly terrible For Beginners which, although musically great, featured very few of the songs that would constitute any other 'Intro' album. Now we've finally got something to cover that - The Singles 1979 to 2012. Firstly, as the name suggests, it covers the bands entire career and doesn't just stop after the 80's like both of the previous comps, so it's pretty thorough. Also they haven't given into temptation and cherry picked the best singles from their long and illustrious career... here we've got every single they've ever released - warts n' all. Not that there are many warts - the last few tracks on disc one, the singles from their Synth-Pop period (Brighter Than A Thousand Suns and Outside The Gate) still divide opinion but otherwise they've got one of the most incredibly constant discographies I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the 3CD one 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is exactly what the title says: all their singles (including a non-single track as well "Ghosts of Ladbroke Grove (in dub)" and to the fans it doesn't add much to their collection except for CD3 which is a treasure box of rarities. All the tracks are absolute gems. Even the "rough tracks" sound so good that could have been on an actual album. Pity we don't get "transient place" nor "ibuy", nor "intellect featuring violin" which can all be found on the super deluxe edition (if you have around £250 that is) and this can only be found through the pledge site. We couldn have done with one version of "Money is not our God" (here we get the full version and the radio edit) and replace one of them with "transient place" which is really impossible to find otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Compilation and Career Overview 18 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this expecting to enjoy about half the tracks - I love all their early eighties material up to and including the Love Like Blood era. BUT after a couple of listens I feel that disc 2, the more modern music is easily equally as good. This whole set works as a superb Killing Joke compilation which covers their evolution over the last thirty-something years and is very listenable from start to finish.

One negative : The 2 tracks off "Outside The Gate" are pretty awful - unlistenable glossy mistakes. I have no idea who they are supposed to appeal to....

Wonderful artwork and packaging too. Mike Coles is a genius artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect 30 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The lads should have started this package with 'Turn to Red' or 'Are you recieving' from the debut 1979 E.P.,instead of the not so heavy 'Nervous system'. Great to see 'Birds of a feather' on this C.D. from 1982,somehow that song would not have seemed right should they had added it to 1982's 'Revelations' album,the song is more in line with the 'Firedances' album,but is an added track with the B-sides on the live album 'Ha!'. Note that you have the original 'Adorations' single on this and not the recent mix from 'Brighter than a thousand suns',as this is my personal favourite. All we need now is the 'Joke' to release the 1979-2012 B-side collection,starting with 'Almost Red'. More cash for them and perfect for their fans! For this now,i say "Well done lads" for many years of different styles. This sure is '1979-2012.

Surely one of the most underrated of the post punk bands. Consistently very good albums and great singles.

Just a great selection of songs from a truly innovative band. I don't have much of their stuff pre-pandimonium so this is just an ideal stop gap till I do.
