2 stars King's X has never released easy accessible music.

That is why this hard working band has never got the break they deserve among the average music consumer. Which is a bit odd, because King's X do music The Beatles would had done if John Lennon had not been assassinated and The Beatles had reformed this decade.

OK, King's X music is a bit harder than The Beatles in their golden period of '66- '70, but the similarities between The Beatles and King's X are too many to be ignored. But not on this album which is a bit harder than the usual fare from this band. Tape Head contains some groovy, sophisticated Hard Rock, with the very special King's X sound.

Each of their previous albums has included one or two brilliant musical pieces. Tape Head does not have any really superb songs. You get their sound and that's it. There is really not any good songs on this album. Tape Head it Kings'X running empty.

This album is nowhere as good as their first three albums or even their self titled album. This album is King's X weakest album in their long career. But on their best; King's X blow away most bands on this planet. But ignore Tape Head if you are new to this band.
