During the late eighties/early nineties King's X produced some of the most influential, innovative and commercially unsuccessful albums around. Now, after the slightly disappointing "Welcome Home Mr Bulbous" they have truly returned to form. This is certainly their best album since "Ear Candy" in '96.
During these 45 minutes we are treated to classic King's X (Believe, Yeah, False Alarm) and a couple of surprises (Static, Skeptical Winds), and what a treat it is.
My advice is that if you like your rock intelligent and slightly different, try this album even if you've never heard of them.

This is probably one of the most difficult albums I've ever reviewed. Why? Because it is so different. King's X here have mixed Dance, Soul, Jazz-Funk and Heavy Rock to produce something that you'll either love or hate (sometimes depending on your mood). Starting with the excellent Believe we are immediately greeted with a drum loop which leads into soulful heavy rock recalling Lenny Kravitz. Manic Moonlight next is more straightforward but still with a dance style drum loop and simple guitar riff. Skeptical Winds features Doug Pinnick speaking the lyrics over a dance-funk style of heavy riffing and drum loops. Perhaps the best track though (the one that for me works the best) is Vegetable which is a great mix of Jazz-Funk and Heavy rock riffing. This recalls 'Defunkt' (the group that was a precursor to Living Colour) or if you like a cross between Jamiroquai and Led Zeppelin. A very bold effort which sometimes works sometimes doesn't but mostly gets it right.

here they are back and now they mix in some bizarre samples, loop bass lines and riffs trip around all psychedelic. The songs are still huge and catchy. very good and original but not quite up next to their very best and usually very original albums. Still good and funky.

If you're reading this, you are probably already familiar with King's X, one of the greatest underground bands in rock/metal for the last 15 years or so. I have been a fan since Gretchen and couldn't wait to listen to this when it was first released.

This gets 4 stars overall, despite the fact that the album contains some of my very favourite KX tracks. The strong songs on this album are extremely strong and match up well with any KX material. In my opinion, the standout tracks are Believe, Manic Moonlight, False Alarm and The Other Side. The last of these is simply brilliant and these 4 songs alone justify the purchase.

This is not a perfect album by any stretch and must have represented a bit of an experiment for the band - note the drum samples which introduce most of the songs. In all honesty, there are a couple of turkeys on this - Static & Skeptical Winds. I could almost see what the band was trying to achieve but, in my humble opinion, they failed.

Fear not, though, if you are a KX fan - you should certainly add this to your collection and the same applies to any serious music fan who can appreciate original rock/metal. Special mention as always goes to Ty Tabor who remains one of my most revered guitarists - his playing is unmistakable and typically tasteful.
