King's X
CD Reviews
Ogre Tones
Review by Josh Turner
This has the angst-ridden riffs they're famous for as well as majestic melodies in the vein of The Beatles. There's no doubt as to where they're from or whose been influencing them lately.

XV
Review by Gary Hill
The latest disc from King’s X, this is no real shocker, but quality material. It’s focused on their usual blend of catchy, yet unusual arrangements of hard rocking music.

Jelly Jam - 2
Review by Gary Hill
Included in the prog section because of the line up (Ty Tabor (King's X John Myung (Dream Theater) and Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs), not necessarily the music, this is the second release from Jelly Jam. Frankly, if you don't have the first album, pick that one up first.

Review by Gary Hill
What a wonderful surprise this one is! I had never been very familiar with King's X, so when I got this disc from King's X drummer Gaskill, I wasn't' sure what to expect.

Dream Theater - Falling Into Infinity
Review by Gary Hill
There are those who feel that Dream Theater is not a progressive rock band. However, this album contains many factors indigenous to progressive rock.

Carmine Appice - Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill

This set has some killer music. It might not be quite metal, but it might be.

Platypus - Ice Cycles
Review by Gary Hill
The second release from Platypus, this is good fun prog with a classic rock edge. At times it is Floydish, at times Dregsish, but all with this particular group's style all over it.

Tribe After Tribe - M.O.A.B. - Stories from Deuteronomy

I’ve got this one listed in progressive rock because a lot of it reminds me of the space rock of Hawkwind.

Ty Tabor - Moonflower Lane
Review by Scott Prinzing

After King’s X parted ways with their manager/producer, Sam Taylor, after their eponymous fourth album in 1992, it was only a matter of time before their Lennon/McCartney-esque pair – bassist Doug Pinnick and guitarist Ty Tabor – found additional creative outlets in solo and side projects.

I was so anxious for this album's release that I actually downloaded a copy (legally, of course!) before waiting for it to appear in my local record store.

Various Artists - Pure Fire - The Ultimate Kiss Tribute

KXM - Scatterbrain
Review by Larry Toering
In 2014, KXM debuted with a very hot album, and the follow up (Scatterbrain)  is an even better release. In fact, I included it in my MSJ top 2017 album list.

Various Artists - Sin-Atra
Review by Gary Hill

Featuring hard rocking adaptations of Frank Sinatra songs, this is kind of a mixed bag.

Various Artists - Thriller - A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson
Review by G. W. Hill

I know the title says this is a “metal” tribute, but I question whether the person who gave it that title knows what “heavy metal” is.

Carmine Appice - Ultimate Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill
An album like this could be a tricky venture. Essentially the concept is a series of songs with the same basic core band.

Platypus - When Pus Comes To Shove
Review by Gary Hill
Combining elements of many `70`s styles, including prog, in a fresh mode, When Pus Comes To Shove is a strong work that should really hold up to the test of time.
