A few listens and you're in, the crashing choppy metal beginning track "Absolute Dissent"'s characteristic anthem onwards. "This World Hell" can substitute track one only the vocal texture is changed, full on speed and message. "In Excelsis" is really a well used latin phrase and the notoriety makes the track easily repeat in your mind. "European Super State" starts like a VNV Nation track and then moves in a bit more guitar direction.
This album shows its rawness and is not overly sped up like today's bands who took KJ's influence. In "End Game" one can't help hear some Lemmy in this apocalypse. "The Raven King" is an obvious tribute to fallen bassist Paul Raven; it sounds most like the "Adorations" era. "Ghosts of Ladbroke Grove", the last track is true to form for the older fans with its slow sludge.
KJ is not going away, neither is the Apocalypse. Over all these years the sound of KJ has not changed. It brings up the question of whether you really want it to? For neu über fans, a deluxe double edition includes ten covers and one remix of their earlier songs. A definite buy for those who like power industrial rock.
