Killing Joke - Outside The Gate album


Size MP3 album: 1209 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1250 mb.

Outside the Gate is the seventh album by English rock band Killing Joke. It was recorded between July and August 1987 and released the following year in June 1988. The album displayed a shift in style for the band towards a fuller synthpop sound. Tensions within the band surfaced during production in Berlin.

Outside The Gate would have worked if it wouldn’t have been a KJ album, simply because Gatherers seem to have too many expectations from such a band. Granted everyone has their preferences and try to justify why some records are more representative to what is considered the KJ sound than others, and opinions are quite divided on Gate. This is one of my all time favourite albums, not just of Killing Joke but of anyone. It takes a few listens and is of its time sound wise but those riffs! I actually went back to this when the remaster came out expecting to be dissapointed but fell in love all over again.

But within Killing Joke's repertoire, "Outside the Gate" is probably the biggest hidden gem. Invisible to the popular music world and disregarded even by many hardcore KJ enthusiasts, this incredible album is, in my opinion, one of their best. Since it is rather difficult to find, this was the last KJ album I added to my collection, and boy was I disappointed that this album has been around since 1988 and I didn't pick it up until 13 years later.

America" is Killing Joke's first single from their seventh studio album, Outside the Gate. It was released by . Records on April 4, 1988. America" was the first official single by Killing Joke to be produced by members of the band, due to the departure of producer Chris Kimsey. The song was first released as a 7" single with "Jihad" as the B-side

I like all Killing Joke albums and this is in my top 5. It isn't really like the rest no, but that's why i like it. And i heard it after most of the others too so i was pleasantly surprised. Title track is bloody amazing. Lovely tunes. Lovely songs and very lovely singing from Jaz the growler. Also just bought EVERY reissue picture disc for Xmas. orse!

Long time KJ fan since my simultaneous discovery in 1984 of S/T (Malicious Damage) 1980 and “Night Time” 1984.After having been somewhat disappointed by the washed out Geordie riffs and mellowed bass by Raven from BTATS, which was an obvious attempt from the execs to bring forth the digital synth chords to craft a more mid-80s post-dust melancholia, “Outside The Gate” is something which I consider to being an anomaly, an easily avoidable mistake, and almost an insult to pure Gatherers. One would have thought that after a few years of hefty releases before mellowing down with their commercial attempts of BTATS that the KJ would have done and subsequently “passed” that pop phase, but “Gate” proved otherwise. A band in top form with one of the greatest lineups of their career (Big Paul & Raven have always been overlooked in history books) should have taken a hint when the record company forced what would have been a Jaz Coleman solo outing (backed by the Jokers as supporting band) to be promoted & sold as a KJ product, leading to Big Paul being fired (and his original drum tracks erased from the mix) and Raven going uncredited for the few tracks he did lull through (& then leaving the outfit). Imagine if you will Led Zep firing John Bonham & John Paul Jones fired during “Houses Of The Holy”.“Outside The Gate” would have worked if it wouldn’t have been a KJ album, simply because Gatherers seem to have too many expectations from such a band. Granted everyone has their preferences and try to justify why some records are more representative to what is considered the KJ sound than others, and opinions are quite divided on “Gate”. Some simply state it`s rubbish to be avoided while others claim it doesn`t deserve the harsh reception it did. Upon my own first listen of the album when it originally came out, I was never able to sit through two songs, simply feeling that whatever this record was supposed to be, it simply did not meet my own needs of the time. Even when trying to go through it decades later, I still find myself unable to get passed the fact it was marketed as a KJ record.My personal suggestion is not to listen to this record if you haven’t been exposed to KJ beforehand. If wishing to experience “Outside The Gate”, start off with “Night Time”, move on to “BTATS”, and then try to sit through “Gate”. If you are a Gatherer and still want to add this one to your collection, I simply can state that this is KJ at its most sterile, lifeless, and somewhat pretentious, as it was principally intended as an offshoot attempt rather than a group oriented effort. Definately not for everyone, to say the least!

I DISAGREE! This is one of my all time favourite albums, not just of Killing Joke but of anyone. It takes a few listens and is of its time sound wise but those riffs! I actually went back to this when the remaster came out expecting to be dissapointed but fell in love all over again. Drama, tunes Geordie and Jaz. Brilliant.

Today I heard it the first time... I realy like it, because of it's unexpected, experimental, nearly proggie sound. Ok, it's not Killing Joke as we all know them normally... But, so what? miret, 33rpmPVC.de
