Ear Candy now dates back some 10 years as the band's 6th studio release from 1996. This album has immediate appeal for both existing fans of the band and others into rock/metal in general.

The album kicks off perfectly with Train with its chugging guitar riff setting the tone for the whole album which has a slightly back to basics feel in places.

Other standout tracks are the lively Sometimes, Box, Mississippi Moon & Lines In The Sand (both led by Ty Tabor), Fathers (a very personal song from Doug P) and the simply excellent Life Going By which is an immense album closer. American Cheese is also worth a mention as a quirky Ty led tune with heavy Beatles influence.

with 13 tracks this is a substantial offering with great diversity.

The production (by the band themselves) is fine and I think the intention was to create a fairly live and, at times, raw feel. The songs by their very nature didn't demand a complex muti-layered approach and this has given the sound immediacy and directness.

As ever, this little known trio from Texas has produced another very strong album. A must for the discerning rock fan.

From the opening chords of The Train , through to the fade on Life Going By , this album has kept me hooked since it was first released . All the boxes can be ticked in terms of the classic King's X sounds that have always defined the band - BIG riffs ( The Train , Run ) , melodious harmonies ( The Box , Mississippi Moon ) and Doug's smoky vocals standing head and shoulders above most current singers ( Picture , Sometimes ) . That's without mentioning the fact that the track Life Going By , last on the album , has been consistently voted favourite song on King's X websites . So , get this album - you're in for a treat !

It quite literally is Ear Candy, another fantastic album by King's X. With well written lyrics and excellent music to go with it, this is a great hard rock album.

This was a slight different change for them, shedding much of their known themes, concepts. These songs are much more regular in theme and lyrics, but as tunes really originally crafted anf hugely infectious. They are jus treally great summer time positive vibe funky catchy riff filled rock tunes. A great feel good, very thoughful album. Different.
