Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 7 October 2010
After the commercial break through of Night Time and it's massive single 'Love Like Blood', the pressure must have been on to move forward with a more commercial sound, yet that in itself must have driven the band towards certain doom.

The internal strife of the mighty Killing Joke is well documented and forms their lifeblood in creating so many classic works.

I would certainly place Thousand Suns very much in that category.

One of my first ever CD purchases, the sound glistened from the speakers with the synth drums and more polished keyboards providing those soaring moments that were the backbone of Night Time.

Sadly, both Sanity and Adorations, the two big singles on the album just fell short of the top 40 and as a result, the album was bought predominantly by existing fans. However, the album is full of standout Killing Joke mid term classics: The two singles are superb and the flow of quality extends right up to the bonus tracks, Goodbye to the Village and on.

So, not a standard bearer like their earliest and most recent works, but still very good indeed.
