Night Time is my favourite Killing Joke album. This is their 5th recording and was released in 1985. Very in tune with that time period, it's a very rhythmic rock album, The bass and drums are definitely front and center. Includes the singles "Night Time" , "Love Like Blood" (which is probably their best known song), and "King and Queens". It also ends with the awesome track "Eighties" . Essential.

HASH(0xa0095a80) out of 5 stars Diehard fans will want to have this remaster that's different enough. July 1 2008
By Sambson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Alright I'm listening to the bonus tracks as I write this, mainly in response to people who're claiming there's no point in adding them. The Kid Jensen version of "Eighties" is auditorily and structurally entirely different than the album version. On the KJ version the guitars only sound double tracked, rather than the album quadruple track, the guitar effect is much milder with a completely different pan ratio; on top of it being a different mix, and not having made it to the mastering process. And folks; I've only addressed the guitar sound. The KJ version is shorter because it is an entirely different recording of the song. He doesn't sing the ending the same (even laughing on the transition back after the guitar solo, where he sings a rather long 'Ahhhhhhh' on the official version), and the band end it cold rather than the fadeout we're used to hearing. The drum, bass and backing vocals are sonically completely different than the album version; with drums sounding like he's not even playing a snare (only toms & cymbals), the backing vocals are ethereal and spaced out, rather than pronounced distinct voices and the bass is so thin you'd think he was playing one of those crappy Kramer basses that were so ubiquitous in the '80s' (no pun intended). There's also the odd sample when all the instruments come in after the guitar intro, that could either be a percussion sample from the drums or the keyboard. The KJ version is way more like a great demo than a professional recording; perhaps why this wasn't the album session, No? Not to mention that you're getting several previously unreleased tracks (New Culture, All Play Rebel), several obscure B-sides (Blue Feather, A New Day & The Madding Crowd) as well as the alternate mixes (Eighties, Love Like Blood, Kings And Queens). Those of you who expected 37:24 of groundbreaking material that would turn NIGHT TIME into a miraculously different album will be disappointed. Those who're bigger fans of their chaotic raw material won't like the remaster anymore than the original release. Anyone who's just using NIGHT TIME as a divider between their Echo & The Bunnymen and Midnight Oil collections doesn't need to purchase this either. But people who're serious Killing Joke fans, that enjoy their commercial side, as much as their extremities, will want to have this remaster. Five stars for the product (style is a personal taste issue). [PS - Love Like Blood Gestalt Mix is much less lush, with a crisp and crunchy maximum gating effect all over it, keyboards mixed to the back, as well as dubby dropouts at the 2:00 mark, the 3:00 where they drop the entire first half of the chorus, and the 4:10 vocal dropout till the end. And for the record, Geordie's Dub of Kings And Queens is actually longer than the original; has a different intro (more like what you'd hear them play live, than the pitched down drums of the original) and plenty of hot new flanging phase on the guitar choruses, more prominent keyboards (which echo out the ending rather than a cold drum ending) and a post-guitar solo dub dropout. Different enough to own.]

HASH(0xa0095ad4) out of 5 stars Best Album of the 80s April 5 2011
By Dave - Published on
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard Eighties on the new wave radio station way back when this came out I was hooked. I rushed out and bought this album and later got all their domestic and import releases I could get my hands on. This band was totally unique and played with an intensity that no other band could match. It wasn't punk (some of their earlier stuff is moreso), it wasn't heavy metal (some of their later stuff comes closer to this category), it wasn't new wave (they'd do that in the next couple albums and it almost destroyed the group), it was just plain cool. This album creates a creepy goose bump inducing vibe throughout. Its a brilliant combination of Geordie's crunching guitar (a completely different sound than anything else going on at the time), some really haunting keyboards in the background and Jaz Coleman's unique doom and gloom yet intelligent and thought provoking approach to vocals. The bass and drums are rock solid. They're not trying to play as fast and loud as they can, they keep it spare with a very cool and spooky effect. There have been other artists who try to create a sort of horror movie gloomy vibe with their music (mostly goth and metal and most of it cartoonish a la Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper) but this is the best that's ever been made and totally unique. Night Time was my favorite as a teenager when it came out and almost 30 years later, I'm a middle aged guy with a kid and a mortgage and I still get a huge thrill out of putting on the headphones and cranking up songs like Darkness Before Dawn, Love Like Blood and Kings and Queens. You can't blame Nirvana for ripping off Eighties, its one of the great rock songs of all time. This version is cleaned up and with a ton of extras, just a great bargain. Way ahead of its time and it has never aged at all (unlike virtually all music from the 80s), Night Time is one of the 5 best rock albums of all time in my book. Even the album cover still looks great all these years later.

HASH(0xa0095f0c) out of 5 stars Evocative and Primal! May 9 2010
By Nadine - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album contains some of the most powerful and mesmerizing music that I have ever experienced. Killing Joke were/are so influential, unique and fit into a category all of their own. They are the sound of our throbbing, tribal heart, the soul of the warrior and the cry of the masses. Paul Ferguson drummed this group into the ethers, and I will always be grateful for the conviction and potent vigor that they imbued their music with. It never ceases to animate my spirit and strengthen me. It hearkens back to an atavistic beat of the collective human soul. These bards are timeless! Thank you a million times over, Killing Joke!
HASH(0xa30352e8) out of 5 stars Eighties started it all for me... Feb. 29 2008

When I first saw this video on MTV, yes, on MTV and it was worth watching back then, it kick started it all. At the time though, I bought a 33 1/3 EP of it, and ended up with a copy of Fire Dances. A few years later I bought a copy of this, and here are my thoughts (just the original songs, nothing on the remakes, etc. everyone can hem and haw about them, they are just remixes, I see no need to comment).
Ok, what is not to like about this album. Definitely not so much like the first two albums, but much better than the Outside the Gate, this album has just enough, not too much of anything. The guitar is great, just pounding when necessary, otherwise great droning riffs, that spike and crash, they are perfect. Next is the tribal bass/drums combo, and and I think the bass stands out just above, and they tumble well together Add the chanting and grunting, again what is not to like! The Eighties riff made me want to pick up a Gibson ES295 and learn those riffs!

Classic Killling Joke, a must for the collection. If you only get one or two by this band, this is in there with their first release as the best. Typical 80s mix, so I'd like it if someone like Steven Wilson would lend his ear to a remix, but the mix is the only weak point. The songs are classic for the genre and period, not to mention some of the best work by KG and tribe. This period of KG was a particularly good one in general, and this release contains some of the extra tracks that tell the story of the time.
