Definitive Edition
Robert Carlberg | Seattle | 09/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Fred Records edition of the classic 1981 "Killing Time" album is the one to get -- the sonics are the best these admittedly scrotty tracks have ever sounded. It includes all six bonus tracks from the RecRec 1993 re-issue, plus an additional two 1981 live tracks, for a total of almost 64 minutes. Add to that, Fred tells us in the liners, "at the correct speed and pitch and without added reverb" for the first time.

Musically, I probably don't need to tell you this is the epitome, possibly the apex of the Downtown NYC sound of the 1980s -- raw, wicked, uncompromising and unapologetic. Grapple with it."

"This is probably what The Magic Band - circa Trout Mask Replica/Lick My Decals Off, Baby - would've sounded like if they'd hired Arto Linday as an additional guitar player and tried to be punk.A couple of corrections to the reviews below :1 - this album was recorded in '81, not in the late 70s, so they were right in the thick of the No Wave movement.2 - this is not a "Bill Laswell production". He was just a member of the group. In fact there are no production credits on the album, so I think it's safe to assume that it was "produced" collectively by the group."
Power PUNK Prog!

"Killing Time is an absolute power prog masterpiece of writing and playing! It is interesting in that some people call this punk and some progressive. It is complex, musical mastery with exceptional musicians with prog backgrounds. It is interesting to me as well that the sheer anger and fury with which this record was made is right in keeping with the energy of the punk-rock movement of that time... but nobody is breaking their instruments here (smile)! Contrast in to Playbak80 by Daevid Allen. Dark complex and forboding. Excellent spin!"
