4 stars This is the first King's X album I've heard, and the best description that comes to my mind for it is very entertaining. You won't get bored while listenning to this album. Very colourful, well instrumented. This is surely NOT progressive rock, but it is surely more complex than pop.

Well structured songs, never too long (sometimes too short even). There are a few progressive elements, such as instrumental passages in odd time signatures, but that's it. Vocals change practically on every song, and every vocalist has a song style. You have mellow songs for one, and more bluesy groovy songs for the other.

The thing is, this album doesn't stand the test of time, and maybe it wasn't meant to. It just puts you in a good mood, catchy melodies, no conentration needed...

Seeing as how King's X are in prog related, I gave this album 4 stars.
