Brighter Than A Thousand Suns (CD)
Riding high on the success of "Night Time", Killing Joke hired, on behalf of the record company, producer Julian Mendelssohn to lend Jaz Coleman's latest apocalyptic notions a slightly poppier sheen, something the band was never too happy with and finally attempted to resolve twenty-odd years later by releasing a new version of the album with several restored mixes. Chris Kimsey had emphasised the guitars and rhythm section over the synths and freed Coleman's voice of some of the reverb. Personally, I'd rather got used to the original version and even kind of miss the reverb-drenched vocals that somewhat added to the heroic, almost Nietzschean quality of the music. Thus depending on one's preferences, it may be not be a bad idea to hold on to the original. Bathed in washes of keyboard, here the instruments barely stick out individually, instead they contribute in equal parts to a rich tapestry of mostly undefinable but always fascinating walls of sound, a circumstance that led detractors to accuse the band of selling out.
