What 2 Killing Joke albums would you like to see them play live and in their entirety?

Fire dances had some of the best Geordies riffs it would be interesting if they would play ANYTHING from that album (maybe besides frenzy which they played on 03-06 tours ) \
I would love to hear a lot of new stuff in setlist AD and MMXII why ? \
Because they still are making great stuff and they could easily fill half of the setlist with the new ones play some evergreens so all gatherers would be happy .

Night Time? Nah. They played lots of Night Time songs in the past. There are live versions of 'em available on the various concert releases, with the exception of "Multitudes" and "Europe". I don't think it would sound great if those songs are played almost 30 years after. They'd have to be severely downtuned because Jaz doesn't have the vocal range he had back then. Downtuning sucks. Fire Dances live would be interesting, but I fear the same might apply. \
Speaking for myself, nothing beats the show from Hammersmith on New Years Day 1984 when it comes to Fire Dances songs played live.

Democracy and Extremities. And trust me, there are no better choices.\

I'd also pick BTATS but it might sound bad due to the same reasons Amalgam pointed out.

I wouldn't vote for EDVRE because Martin Atkins made such a huge mark on the sound of that record. Okay, "Money" can be played allright, but that's not really a very strong track anyway. I think it's quite boring. But a song like "Extremities" or "Age of Greed" had Martin Atkins all over the place. As much as I like Big Paul's drums, I think his style is quite a different kettle of fish.\
If they play any tracks for the sake of set-list variation: Great! But without Atkins (and Raven!) it won't be just as good.\
My advise: Buy "Inside Extremities" for the live CD. \
\
Revelations? YES! Back in 2008 when they did their reunion gigs I thought it was a pity they chose to play songs from Pandemonium rather than from Revelations. It would have been so awesome if they'd played the same set like they did when they last played in the original line-up (Brighton Top Rank, February 1982). I think that Revelations songs like "Chop-Chop" and "Sun Goes Down" sound still very fresh today. I'd prefer those over anything from Pandemonium (but that's just what I think. I know there's people who think Revelations sucks).
