Brighter Than A Thousand Suns: -
Prior to this recording, Killing Joke had banished itself to one of the far corners of the globe, anticipating an Armageddon that never materialised. When it returned, it set itself a fast and furious work pace that would beget a number of superb albums, which reached their apogee in BRIGHTER.
Unabashedly the most commercial release in their catalogue up to this point, BRIGHTER is a paean to Man's courage and persistence of vision, as well as a reflection of his folly: the destruction of his communities ("Goodbye to the Village"), the pillaging of his neighbors ("Sanity"), and the emasculation of his environments ("Wintergardens"). Melodic, majestic-sounding guitars dominate throughout, while poised and powerful rhythms and synthesizers help to strike home these stinging indictments. BRIGHTER stands as a grand and glorious achievement.
