Westworld is the only studio album by English post-punk band Theatre of Hate. It was released in February 1982 by record label Burning Rome, prior to the band's dissolution in 1983. It was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash.
All tracks written by Kirk Brandon.
Westworld reached number 17 on the British single chart.
Westworld was generally viewed by critics as a disappointment in comparison to the group's previous work. AllMusic wrote, "Unfortunately, [Westworld] [...] is not as consistently brilliant as the singles that preceded it". Robert Murray, in the book The Rough Guide to Rock, called it "a work [...] heavy on atmospherics, but which ultimately failed to capture the live potency upon which the band's reputation had been built."Kirk Brandon – vocals, guitar
