Killing Joke [2003] [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
It's best to takes notes as lead singer Jaz Coleman calmly reads a list of provisions "Put on your masks/And animal skins" because Killing Joke's second self-titled album is about to take over. Moments after Coleman's stoic opening, Geordie Walker's guitar chugs into action and awakens Killing Joke's most threatening juggernaut of an album in years. Bass players Youth and Paul Raven are both back although Youth's stint in the group looks to be temporary and Dave Grohl guests on drums, perhaps paying the Joke back for adapting the killer riff of "Eighties" for Nirvana's "Come as You Are." Grohl's drumming is suitably intense and tribal when need be, while Andy Gill's ...

It's best to takes notes as lead singer Jaz Coleman calmly reads a list of provisions "Put on your masks/And animal skins" because Killing Joke's second self-titled album is about to take over. Moments after Coleman's stoic opening, Geordie Walker's guitar chugs into action and awakens Killing Joke's most threatening juggernaut of an album in years.

Grohl's drumming is suitably intense and tribal when need be, while Andy Gill's production miraculously makes sense of the band's thunderous sludge. Still the Coleman/Walker partnership is the star of the show as they play off and push each other like a doom-and-gloom Jagger/Richards. It sounds like Coleman is sitting in the dentist chair with one of those little vacuums sucking out the words on "Total Invasion," while Walker patiently waits his turn to blast out his own brand of stately mayhem. "Asteroid," "Blood on Your Hands," and "Loose Cannon" are all highlights with the band sounding as inspired as when they started, adding the advantage of years of interaction, and "You'll Never Get to Me" presents a brand new shimmering and yearning angle to the group. While Killing Joke's discography has more than its fair share of awkward and overly ambitious albums, they've once again returned to the fury and focus of their classics.

    Awesome

    An exceptional record -- track for track, and as a whole -- on par with their best. Only cred snobs will think that Dave Grohl isn't a perfect fit with the alumni. His playing evokes the quickness and creativity of Martin Atkins, the tom-filled wall of sound of Geoff Dugmore and the relentless power of Paul Ferguson. You'll find Jaz and Geordie are at their symbiotic peak and having both Raven and Youth around to keep things together is pure joy. Andy Gill's production harkens back to the sound of "What's THIS For...!" in that it takes its cue from Youth's recent work and adds a little separation and definition. Picking standout tracks isn't easy but "Total Invasion", "Seeing Red" (hints at "the Wait"), "You'll Never Get to Me" and the first single "Loose Cannon" will all do as a sample of this outstanding release. Waiting seven years between releases isn't what you'd hope for but at least they repay their fans' patience by the quality of this work.
