The first track 'Almost Red' nearly fools you into thinking it's 'Donna Summers' disco classic 'I Feel Love' with the repetitive synthesizer sound, but then the guitar and 'Jaz Coleman's' vocals enter and you know it's something different, for me this is one of 'Killing Joke's' best tracks. Next up is 'Nervous System' which starts of sounding like 'Gang Of Four' and then again the vocals enter and you know it's not. 'Are You Receiving Me' is the third track and this starts to sound a bit more like the 'Killing Joke' that most people will know. The final track 'Turn To red' is a dub track which is the weakest of the four. Note that 'Turn To Red' has runout that just keep going on for ever, so I have faded it out in this case.

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:
If you like this you will have to buy a couple of albums to get all four of these tracks:
This one is reasonable if you want to hear tracks from across their releases (Only Turn to Red is on this one).
