If you are already a huge King's X fan like me, then you will have been looking forward to this new release with some trepidation. The last two releases were Black Like Sunday and the live album, the former being a collection of rehashed old demos. This made for an interesting listening but an album of brand new material would have been preferable.
I have now listened to Ogre Tone a good few times and I am pleased to say the band have returned with a crowd pleaser. This is certainly helped by using a producer outside the band in Michael Wagener who has produced some great rock albums in the past for various acts. The overall sound is undeniably King's X but with a contemporary twist.
The best songs seem to come in the first half of the album, the opening five tracks are all very strong. "Bebop" takes a few listens to get into and the elvis-inspired lyrics will surprise. "Honesty" is another of Ty's great solo ballads, very simply recorded on acoustic with great trademark vocal harmonies. If I have a criticism with the playing it would be the sparsity of Ty's solos which, given the current trends in rock,I expected to be plentiful. Somehow, however, he still manages to impress. The rest of the band are as consistently good as ever with Doug impressing with some powerful notes.
Overall, this gets 4 stars. Had the second half been as good as the first, I would have given it 5. Shame about "Sooner or Later" and "Open my eyes" - neither are particularly pleasant to listen to. Maybe they'll grow on me over time.
If you are a fan, do not hesitate in purchasing. Let's hope they come over and play in England again - these songs would be great live.
By the way, the album includes a "new" version of Goldilox from the band's very first album. It isn't much different - a few vocal embellishments and the guitar sound on the solo is a little more cutting. The songs remains one of their classics.

As a long time King's X fan I thought maybe their best was behind them. I bought this album to be a completist - I have everything else they've released. Having lived with it for a while, I feel like shouting at myself "oh ye of little faith!"
Ogre Tones is, quite frankly, monstrously good. Its their best album since Dogman and candidate for my album of the year. After the lukewarm albums of recent times Ogre Tones is a significant return to form. All the essential KX elements are in place: Doug's savage bass, Ty's soaring harmonies and nimble guitar work, Jerry's rigid drumming. But this time around they've written some stunning songs, not just a batch of riffs.
In "Alone" they've delivered their most likely hit in years. There are big rock monsters like "Hurricane" and "Open My Eyes" to please fans of the downtuned guitar. There are Ty accoustic wonders like "Honesty". And, most importantly, there is a recording of "Goldilox" that does that rarest of things: it betters the original.
Doug Pinnick was 55 this year. You wouldn't know it, as this is one of the sprightliest rock albums of 2005. King's X, my friends, are BACK.

King's x hardly need an introduction, they've been around now for nearly 35 years, and with it, hardly a line-up change in all of that time; an unusual aspect these days for any collaborating rock band. "Ogre Tones" is the first effort on the highly respectable 'Inside out' roster and it is perhaps a slightly below par album for a band with such a high standing back catalogue. Despite this, "Ogre Tones" is still a decent album full of the deft funk, soul and progressive aspects in they're always sincere interpretation of the genre.

"Alone" is a rather catchy number to open with, but it is not followed with an equally brilliant track with "Stay", this song is simply uninspired and fortunately a very short one. "Hurricane" is a better than average incubus, whilst "Fly" returns back to the charismatic and deep rock style that usually works best for the band. "If" is a great song and notches-up the standard further. "Bebop" then, is nothing too special and doesn't really go anywhere. Then comes "Honesty", and it is a fantastic accustic number and cut from the album.

"Open my eyes" is another bland excurision into formulaic hard rock; whilst "Freedom" has a bit more personality and swank to it. "Get away" is another great song that slows the tempo slightly into a tuneful appartage; "Sooner or later" is a lengthy prog affair and rather amazingly the longest effort by far at only a modest seven minutes., No other song on the album eclipses the five minutes mark. "Mudd" is a passable rock number with no real elevating aspects to it. "Goldilox (Reprise)" is a lesser interpretation of the original song on the debut album. "Bam" finishes the album and it is unfortunately a load of rubbish.

A great return to really great form here, heavier than recent and the quality of songs and the whole album is hugely impressive. These songs are some modern rock classics, still funky but catchy and as good as many 'legendary' rock or metal bands out there now. This is a really great new direction and still holds their identity while stretching them in new ways. Very original, catchy, rock, funk heavy grooves. Nice.
