Er, okay? Planet X and King's X are poles apart. Are we going to compare Pink Floyd and Return to Forever next?

They don't need to be that.
Also they came 10 years before Planet X (or so). 

Excellent band all around, a ton of great songs.

Whoever missed King's X in recent years should have checked The Jelly Jam, KXM, Dug Pinnick solo, Ty Tabor solo, that's what i know, I'm sure there's more.

Planet X is great jazz fusion.  It's like comparing Bach with Run DMC.  Kings X is heavy melodic rock music with the emphasis on heavy, as we have drop C tuning on the bass.  They don't fit in any genre as they play music that dose not fit into a box.  You can't put God in a Box.  Music is feeling not Sound.

You should listen to Platypus, it's Ty Tabor with Derek Sherinian, Rod Morgenstein and John Myung.

Planet X is great music.  Instrumental heavy jazz with rock motifs.  The Jelly Jam is also worthy of your attention.  Anything Ty does is really nice.  His solo albums are phenomenal.  Jerry has two good solo albums and Dug is all over the place in his projects.  They keep busy.

When bands wait 10 -12 years to release an album, like Kings X and Porcupine Tree, the pent up demand is heavy and the fans are waiting and wondering, like they are lost in Germany.

Yeah, it makes no sense comparing bands like that. They're about completely different things. They paint with different sonic brushes on vastly different canvases. That's why I never compare bands with keyboardists as leaders (ELP, Ars Nova, Niacin, etc.) with guitar-led bands, let alone trios. They scratch different itches, and I need every itch scratched, and plenty. LOL

 @masxmusic: Ermm  You must be a native English speaker, but I thought I learned English at school; I'm a bit lost at understanding what you try to convey in your last three posts here...

thanks for that, I might have to check the whole thing out, like I said the musicians of King's X have been busy.

You may not understand your life, you may even be confused.  Listen to KINGS X and you may be happier in a few minutes.

Again, most people posting here love King's X, I don't honestly know what is your problem here?  Confused
Some people here (myself included) have listened to albums the King's X musicians have been a part of.

You very much sound like a zealot, here.

But if you want my opinion: there is no truth and god is a lure.
So, there you have it. Ermm
And I don't even want to know anymore what Kings X is about.

it feels like you're baiting and trolling. 
If you are, stop it.
If you want to discuss the music of King's X, then that's fine.
