Customer Review

on 15 November 2005
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.
