King's X: Ty Tabor (vocals, guitar); Doug Pinnick (vocals, bass); Jerry Gaskill (drums, background vocals).
Recorded at Hound Pound Recording & Alien Beans Studio, Texas between December 1999 and January 2000.
This, their second album for Metal Blade, finds the Texas band sounding more confident and relaxed than previously. The songs here are slower and heavier, denser and fuller than King's X's characteristic metal; for instance, the opener, and overture, "Fish Bowl Man," slips from a dissonant intro, to subtle beauty, to slow churning power and back.
Allowed complete creative control, and using its own recording studios and production know-how, King's X has created a small masterpiece. The stress-free atmosphere in the studio created free flowing easy songs sounding more than the sum of their parts, such as the Beatles-esque "She's Gone Away." Never a band to bow to commercialism, King's X isn't afraid to add snippets of spoken-word poetry to "Fish Bowl Man," or pen a gorgeous shimmering tune titled "Charlie Sheen." This album contains accomplished songwriting, beautiful melodies, three-part vocal harmonies and a huge full sound beyond the capabilities of many five- or six-piece bands.
