Journey to the End of the Night is the 13th studio album by The Mekons. It was released on audio CD on 7 March 2000 by Quarterstick Records. Out In The Night" – 3:31. Last Week Of The War" – 2:59. City Of London" – 4:02. Cast No Shadow" – 3:03.

The Mekons have always thrived on musical contradiction, reveling in their clashes instead of diluting their collective influences, realizing that it's less interesting to play it safe. However, there is little evidence of this inclination on Journey to the End of the Night, perhaps their most straightforward album. Long-time fans looking for the fire of their most impassioned music may be suspicious: for once the Mekons sound like a band getting older, but this isn't a bad thing. On Journey, they avoid the sort of jarring juxtapositions that made previous collections more difficult.

Formed in 1979, this British group began as a punk band, but Journey to the End of the Night, their first full-length release in two years, retains few of those roots. Experimenting with a blend of folk and alternative sound, the Mekons bring melancholic, brooding melodies to light. Unfortunately, the album's new material falls short of the expectations one would have of a band with such history. Although the songs on the album each have a distinct sound, a few tracks seem out of place.

Out In The Night" – 3:31. Ordinary Night" – 3:19. Power And Horror" – 2:42. Something To Be Scared Of" – 2:38
