Review by Nightfly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars King's X 4th album continues in pretty much the same vein as the first 3 with no real progression. In other words we still get Doug Pinnick's soulful vocals, the Beatles influenced harmonies, Ty Tabor's easily recognisable warm, heavy and inventive guitar. So it's pretty much another album of heavy rock with fortunately some great songs so we can forgive them for treading the same ground. However the title track in particular of their previous album, Faith Hope Love did see the band stretching out a bit and you can't help feeling that an opportunity was missed for a bit of progression.

The first two tracks kick off in fine King's X style with instantly memorable hooks. The World Around me has a great chugging riff complemented by excellent harmony work alongside Pinnick's lead and Prisoner is even better. Acoustic guitar alongside Tabor's trademark arpeggios and riffs and one of his most soulful solos too all contribute to make one of the albums best tracks.

Not wanting to go into each track individually, which due to the similar approach by the band to most of the material would lead to much repetition but other highlights include Lost in Germany, another excellent riff. Chariot Song is one of the more up tempo and heavier pieces and Junior's Gone Wild gave the band some much needed exposure by also featuring in the soundtrack of the film Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey. Unfortunately this excellent rocker did them little good in gaining them a wider following despite the cult success of the film at the time.

Due to the presence of a sitar Not Just For The Dead has an Indian flavour and towards the end of the album Black Flag proves to be the best track here with a killer riff and excellent vocals from Pinnick and of course those King's X harmonies. Another killer is wisely saved to close the album, Silent Wind offers nothing particularly new but is extremely catchy and memorable, though it does end with a haunting but short keyboard part.

So another very good album by King's X despite offering nothing new musically, though not quite in the same league as the first 3 but a deserved 3 stars.

4 stars When I first purchased this album, I didn't quite know what to expect. There are certain King's X titles that are commonly seen on top album lists (Gretchen, Dogman), but rarely do I see this self-titled album. On closer inspection, this album doesn't really depart much from the sound of the th ... (read more)
