I'm going through a re-evaluation of some Killing Joke albums right now.  Now that I've finally gotten around to Extremities, I was wondering which of these two beloved industrial metal albums people prefer?  Currently, I prefer 2003.

I've heard Pandemonium but not the other one. I must resolve that some time.

Both are great albums, but Pandemonium is my favorite from the band (with Night Time a close second). One of my favorite industrial albums too.

The same. I might have listened to the other one at some point in the past, but probably only once, and I don´t remember it. I´ve started writing reviews of Killing Jokes discography a few months ago, so I´ll get there some day. I´ve only finished the review for album one and two so far Tongue.

Pandemonium was the first Killing Joke album I listened to though, so it´s a special album to me, although I never felt it was a perfect release. I´m a big fan of the three 80s synth albums (yeah even...that one) and Extremeties...

I've heard most of them.  I still have to check out the last few of their early catalogue and Democracy.

Yesterday after comparing some of the albums, I've found my favorite Killing Joke album to be Extremities.  Reasoning is simple: it's the most Killing Joke album.  It's a raw mix of industrial rock, industrial metal and post-punk with a little room for the electronic of their late-80's career, is dominated by a careful mix of catchy industrial melodies, punk attitude and raw noisy atmosphere.  No one facet rules over the other, but it all represents Killing Joke's history both past and future.  I find the other albums to be at least a little monotone in construction, but still good.

I'd say Killing Joke is my favorite industrial rock/metal band, but that seems a bit weird to say since I'm not into a lot of industrial rock.  I still have a lot of growth to do in industrial music (admits to never hearing a full Rammstein album), but with my appreciation growing and growing, I'm seeing the whole genre in a new light.  Finally getting around to The Fragile thanks to my dedication to explore the genre.  But for what industrial I'm familiar with and its strengths, traits and weaknesses, my favorite Killing Joke album is easily Extremities.

I am most a fan of their recent releases (post-KJ 2003), although I love some songs from the eighties (including Eighties!).
