King's X - Ogre Tones 9/27

Ogre Tones

Judging from the sample clips, this should be their best album in years!!!!

Hopefully it will be much better than the last 2, which have both been terrible.

Agreed. The last 2 have not been their best work. Some experimenting that didn't work. Ogre Tones is shaping up to be a return to form.

There are no dates yet, but they are supposed to be touring Oct-Nov this year. No word on next year.

From the clips it sounds like their best album in a long time. I haven't bought a King's X album since Tape Head, but I may have to change that and pick this one up!

I finally got it and...it's a little below average for KX. Definitely better than Manic Monday and Black Like Sunday, but not nearly as good as Tapehead or Bulbous. Would be a much better album if they trimmed 3-4 weak tracks off.

There just seems that there is hardly any riffing any more in KX music and it seems like the writing is Doug-heavy. Alot of this album sounds like Pinnick's solo stuff. However, it definitely has more of the "KX sound" than the previous two.

Bottom line: not a bad album, but definitely nothing special. The kind of album that is just good enough to make you want to eject it and listen to some of their older stuff.
