Killing Joke - Brighter Than a 1000 Suns (1986) Retail CD
Truly,this is THE great artistic statement of the 20th century.The creation of "horror-beauty" (as Mr Coleman himself referred to it) was the exclusive domain of Killing Joke. This,the last album recorded by the great Joke line-up of Coleman/Walker/Ferguson/Raven,was the culmination in creating 8 years of experimental music.Jaz said "this is the sound we always dreamed of." Make no mistake - this is emotionally the most intense record in history;brilliantly explosive,it oozes the panic sensations of the nuclear age in which it was written.Killing Joke crafted their music by this time,andmore… the fusion of Geordie's formidable guitar and Jaz's keyboard atmospherics has to be heard to be believed. The opening "Adorations" is a microcosm for the entire album.The authority of the Joke's classic rhythm section cannot be denied.Over this we hear the great guitar pioneer Geordie Walker,who moves from devastating riffs to chords of breathtaking beauty,effotlessly.Jaz's vocal style here is perhaps the most conventional of all,but he finds terrific melodies and lyrically this is pure art.The title "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns" refers to Sanskrit accounts of of vast nuclear exlosion in pre-history.Every song here is a classic,but particular mention should be made of the haunting "Love of the Masses" and the epic "Rubicon" that closes the vinyl version of this astonishing album.If you own but one CD,make it this one.It will change your life.To this day I have never heard anything better.
