AllMusic Review by

It's been a devil of a time convincing some of this band's once-ardent fans that Killing Joke are back on track in a big way with Night Time, but the excellent selections for singles off the LP have been a help. "Kings and Queens" sounds like an air raid, with Geordie's gigantic guitar reverberation thundering in your ears and Jaz Coleman's full-throated hollering taking off like a firework on July 4; in fact, the whole thing feels a little like the sound you hear at the airport as you watch a jet take off, and the chorus feels like you're being led into the planet's final battle. It's great to have them back.
