4 stars For the best part of ........... well, since this album was released..... I have tried to really get into this band. I have bought most of their albums. But I have so far failed to crack this nut.

Gretchen Goes to Nebraska is the second album from King's X. Their debut album detonated in the scene as an elephant landing in a swimming pool and King's X became an instant favorite among music critics and the intellectual university & college crowd. Unfortunate, King's X never became a stadium seller band and that is a great shame.

The music on this album is very intelligent crafted. The songs has it's base in the world of Beatles. Add Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Rush and Pearl Jam to the mix too and you have this album and this band. All the songs on this album are great. My favorite and this is one of my favorite songs from the 1980s too is Pleiades with it's mix of Sabbath and Beatles. Other songs again are more slower while most of this album really rocks out. This trio creates a lot of noise with bass, drums, guitars and vocals.

This album with the strange album title is a great album which is both intelligent and rocking good. This is one of the best albums to come out of the 1980s too. In short; it's great.

4 stars
