Falls down on the niche side, but niche is excellent, as is this album.
The majority of the album was recorded in Berlin during October 1985 with returning producer Chris Kimsey. The track "Victory" was recorded months later in Spring 1986, along with "Ecstasy" (the B-side to the Adorations single release), produced by Stewart Levine. The last track to be produced was "A Southern Sky" in August 1986, produced by Chris Tsangarides.
The album, with the exception of "A Southern Sky",was originally mixed by Chris Kimsey. However, E.G Records requested that all of Kimsey's mixes (bar "Twilight of the Mortal") be replaced with new mixes by Julian Mendelsohn for more commercial appeal, against the wishes of the band. It was these replacement mixes which were ultimately released, with prominent reverb and the guitars and rhythm section generally mixed lower. Some songs were significantly altered, such as extending "Victory" from its original 4 minutes to over 7 in the style of a 12" remix.
At the request of Killing Joke, Chris Kimsey's original mixes were restored when the album was reissued in 2008. The reissue also features bonus tracks, including the B-side "Ecstasy". The verse riff from "Ecstasy" was reused on the track "Obsession" from Killing Joke's next album, Outside the Gate.

Dont forget to tell her it also sounds like
22 Faces by Garden of Delight, Baby Come Back by The Royals (she probably knows this one from 1966) and Life Goes On by The Damned.
