    With your love for hollowbodies, I should have pegged you as a Killing Joke fan!

    They are no less relevant these days. Still in regular rotation for me...

    Great spark, fire, and light right out of the starting gate, though they've guttered a few times in the past decade.

    As a Killing Joke fan since Turn To Red came out in 1979, I think their last 2 albums are among their best.

    I actually think their genius. I like all the albums. I have all the albums.

    The s/t debut, what this for, Revilations, and Fire Dances are all great, not a weak moment in any of them. Tried a few later cuts, couldn't get into it. Any post 1985 stand outs?

    I love it when people stay with, and allow a band to grow and evolve.

    Opinions may differ and thats fine - but since the question was asked, here's what I think is a standout from their most recent release. The tension and release, and dramatic build up make this a potent blend of their core sound and yet brought forward into new turf at the same time.

    Their 90's albums Pandaemonium and Democracy are pretty good, especially Democracy imo.

    OK - here's a real treat: A preview of a new track in the works - to further respond to the question of what to look forward to post 1985?

    Pandemonium is one of the most overlooked albums of the 90s. IMO.
