Killing Joke’s seventh album Outside The Gate is a little bit of an outlier in the band’s discography. For one thing, the non-Jaz Coleman members of the band are in many cases either not present or marginalised. And for another, the post-punk is mostly jettisoned in favour of synth-pop. My my. Reissued on picture disc vinyl in an edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 16th December 2016This album started out as a solo project for Jaz Coleman collaborating with Killing Joke guitarist Geordie but the record company got hold of the uncompleted demos and decided to release it as a Killing Joke album to cash in on the name. Jaz had to finish the tracks in a rush and we can therefore safely assume that the album is not as complete as he intended it to be. Having said that I actually enjoy this album - it's a little bombastic and pretentious but this only adds to it's charm. The lyrical subject matter covers a wide range too.
