Not Their Best Live Effort

carlosdev

Killing Joke is a tremendous live band, but you wouldn't know it from listening to this. The band plays like they're getting paid by the hour and rush through their songs. Vocalist Jaz Coleman sounds like he swallowed a can of sterno that he had just lit. Give this one a wide berth unless you're a KJ completist. Incidentally, the track listenings are wrong - tracks 16 and 17 are reversed. If I have a gripe with eMusic, it's that this kind of thing happens far too often. I hope that at some point they actually start reading these reader comments and start fixing track errors, time errors and that sort of thing. It's more important to their clients than I think they give credit to.

They Say All Music Guide

No Way Out But Forward Go is Killing Joke’s first full-length release since 1996′s Democracy, and the band’s third live album. Taken from a 1985 concert on the Night Time tour, it’s hardly a worthy substitute for a studio album, but it does showcase Killing Joke at their finest. The 17 tracks are split roughly equally between Youth-era and Paul Raven-era material, with most of the Night Time album being present. All of the early classics (“Wardance,” “Requiem”) are featured, as well as rarer songs such as “Pssyche.” Live versions of two tracks from Brighter Than a Thousand Suns are also included, as is a full CD-ROM of the concert on some editions. Unfortunately, most of the show sounds as if it’s been recorded in a rehearsal room, since the audience appears to be almost entirely lifeless. The bandmembers give it their best effort, however, and throw themselves into the performance wholeheartedly. The only low point is “The Good Samaritan,” which isn’t really appropriate for a live setting. Other than that, it’s a good representation of the band’s bile-and-fire approach. [The 2006 edition came packaged with a bonus DVD.] – Jim Harper
