The Fall Of Because, Tension and more. 8 tracks 36:31. If not quite as remarkable as the band's gripping self-titled debut, What's THIS For. showed that Killing Joke could maintain their frenetic, doom-wracked intensity while experimenting with their already strongly established style. Jaz Coleman's vocals go through even more treatments and tweaks than before, chorus shout-alongs swathed in deep echoes, hidden behind Geordie Walker's punishing riffs and the steroid-driven rhythm section.
