4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Stars for Simply being Killing Joke and Colsey, 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Singles Collection 1979 - 2012 (Audio CD)
Killing Joke is in my top 3 music for desert island prison music (Motörhead and Tom Waits are the other 2). While they have certainly hit some duds over the years when they hit the mark it is decimated. So when this project was announced, and was noted that Mike Coles was designing the package I took note.

All of these songs have been somewhat easy to find with the internet. So I wanted this because it's a proper format done by the band. But Mike Coles was the mastermind artist behind all of the good Killing Joke art. Being there from the beginnign some of his work is iconic. He has an eye for detail and loves packaging.

There is a über elaborate packaging that is incredible but I could not justify that amount of bread. So I opted for this version. It's a scaled down, consumer friendly version. So what gets cut? Artwork unfortunately but you can't have it all.

This is actually a good representation of Killing Joke to the newcomer. It covers the full career and even includes a few stinkers just to show how bad it got (Beyond the Gates). Some of the rarities should have been A-sides. Of course there are others that aren't here. But you can't get it all and maybe there will be another version.
