5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, 28 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Snow (Limited Edition) (Audio CD)
This is the album that many prog-rock fans have been waiting for since the last gloriously overblown concept album, but this one takes the art onto another level. At a mind-boggling 115 minutes (plus 52 minutes for the bonus disc), no-one could accuse the band of not offering value for money. My first concern was that surely the quality must suffer over these 2 hours? Amazingly, the answer is an emphatic no, with future Beard classics such as "Looking For Answers", and "Wind At My Back", this really is one of the best prog-rock albums of all time, being up there with anything Genesis or Yes have ever done.
If you are a fan of the band, you have already bought it.
If you are a fan of the genre, you need to buy this album. Even if you buy nothing else by this band, this monumental release stands up as a fantastic single body of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Return To Form!!!, 10 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Manic Moonlight (Audio CD)
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.
