The 1990's saw the return to the raw, guitar based sound, forgoing some of the more synth based sounds of the albums of the late 1980's. In fact, I DO enjoy "Extremities, Dirt, and Various Repressed Emotions" as much, maybe, as anything they'd done, they sounded kind of revitalized to me with stuff like the cool "Money Is Not Our God".....all in all a pretty good album (listened this morning!)
They took a rather extended break, which seemed to do some good as well, because "Pandemonium" has some good, early-90's grunge-influenced rockers, such as the title track and "Whiteout".....again, just listened today, don't know if I have before or not, but this is a band/era that deserves another serious listen from the BigMan!.
In 1998 they released "Democracy".....checked that one out today to bu sure, and it sure sounde like the end of the road to me......not such a good album, desperate for the "next" sound.....just didn't like it....and with THAT, I am going to stop the studio albums HERE. If you are a huge fan, clammoring for a more recent album, just ask, I'm sure I have it in this monsterous torrent, but I just don't feel like listening to ALL of them.
So, other stuff.....what have we? WEEELLLLL....."The BBC In Concert 1995", can't say I've listened. "Chaos For Breakfast", an inersting 4-disc set of singles and stuff. The live "Gulf War Dance". A live audience tape from 3/13/85. The "Sessions" collection, covering a lot of odds and ends. A self-explanatory "Singles and Rarities" (3 discs!). A live 1979 set, "The Unperverted Pantomime". And if ALL THAT weren't enough, blog-super-friend Dave Sez hs come through with some of HIS stuff, I assume it's great, we'll talk about that a bit later, his knowledge and fondness for this particular band, one which I guess maybe I need to catch up with at least a bit.......sorry, men of Killing Joke, You just weren't my thing first time around.......hate when that happens!
