5.0 out of 5 stars King's X Are Back To Their Best With "XV"!! 18 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
I managed to get this CD a few days ago, a few days before release. I am a massive King's X fan and have been for 20 years now. Anyways, down to the nitty gritty.
With XV, Dug, Ty and Jerry have come up with a masterpiece. On first listen you are mesmerized by the impact of first song PRAY.....a song about all things religion, the actual music harks back to the first two albums, Silent Planet and Gretchen. Then if you can catch your breath we have BLUE, which is a little bit mellower but a great song all the same. Third song, REPEATING MYSELF is the first song of XV to feature Ty on vocals, just beautiful lyrics to a beautiful song. Then we get back to the ferocious ROCKET SHIP, which is a major highlight of XV, this reminds me of the Dogman album, quite dark and very heavy, I love it! JULIE has Jerry singing, and this is a major surprise in the sense that it holds itself up with the other songs on the album, definitely not a filler by any accounts! This is a song Lennon would have been proud to have written! Next up is ALRIGHT, the first single, and we're back to King's X of old, catchy lyrics and great harmonies. If the label got the right marketing with this single this would put King's X at the top where they belong! BROKE is just a great song, Dugs singing is fantastic, bluesy and soulful at the same time, the na na na's are just one of the standouts of the song, it has just everything, a great surprise! I JUST WANT TO LIVE has Ty back in the helm on vocals, this song wouldn't be out of place on Tys solo albums. This song just gets you thinking about life and how lucky we are compared to alot of people in the world. MOVE to me is, if there was a favorite on the album this would be it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebratory return to form..! 28 Jun 2008
By Lexx
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yeah, I'm like a lot of the other reviewers and long-time fans of this band: Great classic run of albums on Atlantic, until the limp Ear Candy and then the departure to Metal Blade and indie-metal obscurity.
Then last year, the word got out that King's X were working with production-god Michael Wagener, and I started to get quietly hopeful that this LP would be the one to return them to the status they held at the end of the uber-Grunge 'Dogman'-era, where they totally destroyed the competition at the Woodstock revival festival. Indeed, anticipation increased when I saw the promo photographs that preceded this release - the band, clad in leather and denim, looking like they KNOW this LP is going to rock.
Now, for the first time in ages, we have a King's X LP that is cohesive, focussed, and succinct. Many of the previous albums felt too noodly and experimental, despite having numerous moments of potential. Perhaps sometimes a band just needs time off to experiment, before they can come back with a bang, and I think that's what's happened here.
'Pray For Me' starts the LP off with a barnstorming Doug opener, that sounds like a gospel tune in some monumentally rocking evangelical prayer meeting. Next up is a couple of Ty tunes - beautiful and well-composed, but without sucking the air out of the album, and then back to some Doug-heaviosity with 'Rocket Ship', and the album pretty much alternates from Doug to Ty, as usual.
For me, the standout track is the seismic 'Move'. Another grooving Doug track, with a stratospheric chorus accompanied by a monstrous grunge riff: it contains the kind of Doug-style passion I haven't heard since maybe the first LP. Listen to the last 30 seconds - I would bet that Wagener made the band sit down and study their early albums to recapture the vibe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done KX 5 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I held off buying this 'till a few weeks on from release; I am a long-time KX fan, and was not happy with (OT)Ogre tones, their last effort.Somehow it didn't fit together as an album, even though some songs were great.

This time they have delivered a really quality package.The biggest change to me is that the order of the songs, the album as a whole, works so well. The songs themselves vary greatly but it all fits together.The way in which the songs run into each other a bit keeps the confident pace up through the album.It is way better produced than OT as well.

Fave' tracks? 'Blue' and 'Free'.So very Kings'x yet (and I know this is controversial) so much more listener- friendly than previous efforts.I am proud to be a fan of the band after hearing this right through 3 or 4 times (not jumping around the cd).

This is a very fine piece of work and a pleasure to listen to.Well done Doug, Ty and Jerry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly a return to form! 30 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Just been listening to this album - it's good. I parted ways with Kings X a few years back after Ear Candy - which was a good but not great affair. Please Come Home Mr Bulbous was awful, I don't know what happened to them there.....
This seems to contain a little more passion & warfare. The lyrics and vocals have more depth & the playing has a lot more fire. It's not Dogman but it's more than I myself expected.
A terrible review but I do think that if you liked early Kings X them you won't be disappointed with this

5.0 out of 5 stars Kings Reign Supreme 23 Jun 2008
By gingerguru VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I think it's important to start the review by putting this latest release from King's X into context. This is, I'm fairly sure, the band's 12th studio album, their debut record being released all of 20 years ago. This shows just how durable the band have been and the vastness of their musical creativity over that period.
The album sort of carries on in the same vein as Ogre Tones, although I would suggest the band sound even fresher on XV than they did on the last release. Michael Wagener has produced again and this time round he's done a better job, as if he's now got a better grasp on the band's vibe.
What we have is a fairly mixed bag of songs. Pray, Alright, Go Tell Somebody & Rocket Ship are all pretty up tempo and straight ahead rockers. Alright is particularly catchy and does remind me of the band's earlier and, perhaps, more exuberant days circa Gretchen & Faith Hope Love.
We also get the usual Ty Tabor led tracks of which there are three - Repeating Myself, I Just Want To Live & I Don't Know. These are typical Ty tracks of the ballad variety and stack up well against his best songs with the band and from his solo albums. Repeating Myself is a quite stunning song with some beautiful vocal harmony lines - a real highlight on the album. As a first, we also get a track with Jerry (the drummer) taking lead vocals on Julie. This is another very strong track with a heavy Beetles hue. It's also very reminiscent of the material on Jerry's solo album which is surprisingly good by the way.
If you get the extended version of the album, you'll get 2 bonus tracks, Love & Rockets which has a great chorus and No Lie which is bluesy and great fun. These make a total of 14 tracks which provides a pretty generous and varied offering.
