After the monolithic Absolute Dissent (hey, where are the rest of the tracks, eh?), the original Killing Joke continue to lay waste to their peers with MMXII. For those who were mad about the production values of Absolute Dissent, you will be pleased to know that this album is a much more textured and well-oiled machine.

The two biggest comebacks are in the form of increased melodic singing from Jaz, and more keyboard presence. MMXII seems to be an interesting blend of their Brighter Than A Thousand Sun sound, along with the heavy sound they've had on Pandemonium. This album came fast and I didn't really know what to expect after Absolute Dissent, which is probably one of my favorite KJ albums now (yeah, its loud. doesnt bother me *shrugs*).

Pole Shift is a great slow burner, starting with atmospheric synths that build to a mid-tempo riff with Jaz crooning along in good fashion, until it kicks in hard and the track explodes. You know what comes next. Very Floydian song in a wierd way and an awesome start.

Fema Camp is kinda the "Endgame" of this album. Good chug-a-long riff with a shouty chorus. End Game is much better if you ask me but Fema Camp is still a fist pumper. Paranoid lyrics are an obvious nod to present day concerns.

Rapture. I will get this out of the way now. Its the first song I heard on this record, and it remains the best. Practically one grinding riff for 4 minutes. This is what Killing Joke is all about (at least since Extremeties anyway), pure supercharged post-punk riffing. This is the darkest song on the record by far. If you didn't like the last three albums, why are you still here? Rapture is an instant killing joke classic!

Colony Collapse and Corporate Elect are good.

Along with Whats This For...! and Pandemonium, this is probly my favorite CD of theirs. You got the original band members once again, so there's a plus, the music is very angry, yet has a bit of hope in some songs so its not all bleak. Quite worthy of an album about the end of days. A bit shorter then the last record it packs a much larger punch in my opinion. Its amazing to think about, these guys are in their early 50's an age when a good number of artists either milk the reunion gigs or put out average to crappy material yet this bands last four records are probly just as strong as the material they were putting out in the early-mid 80's, and still infuse the music and lyrics with meaning and originality.
if your a long time Killing Joke fan this CD will not disappoint!

And that's exactly what's happened here. Lineup changes and long breaks nonwithstanding, Killing Joke consistently makes a case for being the best band in the world, in the sense that a band is a team of people that need each other in order to be their best. No one in Killing Joke is a star. Jaz can talk for weeks non-stop, yes. Geordie's guitar choices (chordally and sonically) are unmistakable, and the rhythm sections on every album have always served the music well.

HOWEVER, this particular lineup (the "classic" lineup that lasted a mere three albums in the early eighties before splintering) truly needed to reunite, NEEDED to record Absolute Dissent, NEEDED to tour again.

This urgency translates to MMXII, albeit tempered by familiarity. It's a better sounding album than Absolute Dissent. The songs are just as good, if not better in some cases. The magma stirs, the poles shift, the winds howl. Blessed be.

KJ return with a superb, inspired album that continues in the direction set by the previous "Absolute Dissent" but cleans up the production and further cranks up the songwriting brilliance. Overall, this is a more melodic, less thrashy album than AD; yet, it remains bone-crushingly heavy. Coleman's monotone, yet passionate vocals make almost every song an emotional, draining affair. The guitars shred and combine with the keyboards (more prominent than in AD) to create an impenetrable wall of sound that has a remarkable thickness, yet allows enough room for Coleman's chant-like vocals to slice through the mix like a cold electric bolt. Coleman's melodic gifts are in full force -- almost every tune is memorable, with terrific hooks and unpredictable twists and harmonies that raise this band and this record far, far above the competition. As others have pointed out, this is an almost perfect synthesis of the tunefulness of "Brighter Than a Thousand Suns" and the heavier sound that they returned to in the 90s and 2000s. This unique combination of melodic brilliance and shredding heaviness is uniquely KJ -- is there any other band that pulls this off with such uniqueness and force of will? Great record from a band that has no peers.

Can't say enough about the most innovative punk band that's stood the test of time. KJ have been at this since 1978 and have always made records that challenge the norm. Everyone from from Dave Grohl, to Prong, to Metallica, to NIN, to Ministry owe their sounds and sensibilities to such a band. And the new record doesn't disappoint! I'm so glad to see that KJ are now producing new music about once every to to three years now. And they still manage to sound original while still keeping to their roots as the forefunners of the industrial/punk/metal genre. Also, was lucky enough to see them tour this record and their last over the past few years and for a group of close to late 50's/early 60's dudes, they still rock out on stage like they were the young band I saw close to 20 years ago.

If you've never heard Killing Joke before and if your roots are in the dark metal/funk punk/industrial genre, this is well worth checking out to see how it all began.
