More Fun in the New World [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Coming off their 1982 masterpiece Under the Big Black Sun, X offered their follow-up More Fun in the New World one year later. While its predecessor won the band a slew of new fans, it didn't serve as the major breakthrough that it so deservedly should have. Rightfully, they didn't fool with their already winning formula; they issued another solid set of songs produced, again, by Ray Manzarek. The anthemic album opener "The New World" is still powerful years later, as is the absolutely beautiful ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts," which perfectly captures the paranoid feeling of Reagan's America in the '80s. X achieved new rough and rocking heights with the vicious ...

X achieved new rough and rocking heights with the vicious "Devil Doll," "Painting the Town Blue," and "Make the Music Go Bang," while returning once again to their retro '50s roots with "Poor Girl." More Fun in the New World would prove to be Manzarek's final production credit with X, who would hook up with renowned heavy metal veteran Michael Wagener for their next release two years later, Ain't Love Grand! [More Fun in the New World was re-issued in 2002 with four bonus tracks.]

    BANG

    This blazing set of unforgettable compositions should have catapulted X to the attention of the nation. We fans owe all the players in this group a debt of gratitude for remaining true to their original vision and for having the guts to make it go Bang! Having been there when X launched a live set with "We're Having Much More Fun", believe me, this is as real as it gets. Between Billy Zoom's metallic hillbilly and D.J. Bonebrake's relentless rhythms, John Doe and Exene Cervenka harmonize and counterpoint one another perfectly. Doe's voice is singularly one of the best of his generation, and foils beautifully against Exene's poetry driven anti-diva angst. This band is highly literate which puts an altogether different face on the type of music they're playing. MOONHOG REVIEW
