King's X more often.
Of course, I tend to think most of those page views were already "the converted." By that I mean, people who are already fans of the band, and who don't need to be encouraged to go to a show, or pick up the latest release. As much as I love to connect with those folks, that's really not gonna help the band.
In all seriousness, they're a band you should check out, if you haven't. I did find myself thinking I should offer up good places to start with the discography....
Now, I can ALMOST say "anywhere." I think their catalog is that good, and that strong. That's one of those absolutely not helpful things to say in a situation like this. I understand that, so...I offer my five favorite King's X albums.
(I'm sure fans will think I'm crazy with this list...everyone has their favorites right?)
Number Five - Black Like Sunday
Black Like Sunday, Danger Zone, Working Man, Finished, Bad Luck
Number Four - Tape Head
Groove Machine, Fade, Ono, Ocean, Little Bit of Soul, Higher Than God
Number Three - Ear Candy
The Train, Sometime, Looking for Love, Mississippi Moon, Picture
Number Two - Dogman
Dogman, Pretend, Black the Sky, Fool You, Complain, Cigarettes
Number One - XV
Gretchen?!?!" Yes, in many ways Gretchen Goes to Nebraska is King's X at their best, but for me, personally, I've loved the way the band has evolved in the 2000's. On this, their most recent album, the melodic sense has remained strong, but the groove and heaviness has just become more pronounced. The band feels more powerful than ever, to my ears.
Pray, Blue, Rocket Ship, I Just Want to Live, Move, Go Tell Somebody, Love and Rockets (Hells Screaming)
Now, this list is clearly biased to the latter half of their career, which shouldn't be construed as to say I don't like their early albums, because I damn well do. It's also striking me right now that my favorites of their albums all fall around the mid-to-late 90's, when I discovered them. I suppose that's true of any music fan. You like what originally drew you to the band.
The Best of King's X. It's a good set. I'll always recommend getting the full albums, but it would give you a really good overview of what the band is about, including a classic tracks like King, Goldilox, Pleiades, It's Love, Black Flag, Lost in Germany, and a truly epic live version of their signature track, Over My Head, recorded at the 25th Anniversary Woodstock Festival.
(Yeah, some of those linked videos are ridiculous...it's was the 80's)
This is a GREAT band, and you could do worse than give them your ear for a while. Plus, with the current situation with Jerry's health, and cancelling the tour, it'd be nice to see a few scheckles find their way to this very deserving group of artists. So, please, buy the albums...don't pirate them.
