Black Like Sunday
When most bands go into their chest of old recordings and re-record old unreleased material, it is interesting but mostly cack. When KingsX do it, the result is one of their best albums in years. Some of the material here is from before the band even existed. There is something pretty impressive in the fact this material has never even been released. It demonstrates clearly why KingsX has always been considered a muso band. While occasionally producing material that might have broader appeal, like ‘Over my Head’, most of their material is not the easiest to get into. All of it, even their most recent stuff, is worth it, given the time. This trio are some of the most impressive rock musicians around and come across like a more muso version of Rush. This is an excellent CD from an excellent band. It should sell bundles, but it wonít. KingsX are the perpetual best kept secret of the hard rock world.
