Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
By switching from Atlantic Records to the smaller Metal Blade label in 1998 for their Tapehead release, King's X was finally able to call their own musical shots without having to worry about coming up with the "big crossover hit." Their second release for their new label and eighth overall, Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous, shows that this veteran band still has plenty of gas left in the tank. If you're a fan of the band's heavier and slightly darker direction of recent times, then Mr. Bulbous is for you. Although it starts off with one of their weaker album openers, "Fish Bowl Man" especially when compared to such stellar past opening cuts as "We Are Finding Who We Are," ...

Although it starts off with one of their weaker album openers, "Fish Bowl Man" especially when compared to such stellar past opening cuts as "We Are Finding Who We Are," "Dogman," and "Train", King's X quickly picks things up where they left off with such outstanding melodic heavies as "Julia," "She's Gone Away," and the mysteriously titled "Charlie Sheen." While most prog metal bands of the late '80s/early '90s have struggled with their musical direction by the dawn of the millennium, King's X remains true to their longtime vision with Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous.

    Mr. Bulbous-May It Never Burn-out

    Mr. Bulbous to me did start out as a dissappointment, but, to be a true KING'S X fan you must understand their style and passion of each song written, KING'S X are a 3-piece band of atrtists. Jim Morrison was an artist and supposedly everything he ever did was great. I've seen KING'S X 3 times in my life and will see them 2 more times in August; to understand KING'S X is to see them live and see how they ''engulf'' your senses of being three men who have prevailed over a decade with their ''artistic'' ability and their own brand of rock-n-roll. Bulbous was different than Tape Head as was Ear Candy after Dogman. If your looking for the same sound album after album, you might as well stick to listening to Poison, 'cause KING'S X are artist's not a band of posers that have died out. The first time I seen them in Springfield,MO (where they are originally from) they played Goldilox and did not sing one word, they asked about 25 concertgoers to come up onstage to sing, the ages ranged from 13 to 45, they didn't know the words from ''commercial'' airplay, they knew it from being true KING'S X fans. Long live the best band in the world.

    Mr. Bulbous...Well Worth The Listen

    This album features some of Ty Tabor's heaviest guitar work since Dogman and the songs are full of great hooks. On 'Fish Bowl Man', Doug Pinnick and Ty Tabor vocally complement eachother beautifully, from hypnotic verse to explosive chorus. 'Smudge' combines very cool, spooky sounds with an emotionally moving refrain. 'Marsh Mellow Field' with knock you out with gigantic drums and guitars. There are also plenty of softer sounds on this record, making it an all-around hit.

    I was disappointed

    I want to start out by saying that I consider King's X to be one of my favorite groups. They rank in the top ten. I was eagerly awaiting this album. After Tapehead wowed me, I was expecting more of the same. Not more of the same music, or more of the same sound, but more of the wow part. King's X has with few exceptions, never failed to impress me. This album is one of those exceptions. I've listened to it about five times now, and I must painfully admit that not one of the songs has reached out and grabbed me. Yes, the songs have started to grow on me, but I've yet to find myself humming one of the melodies, or jamming to one of the riffs in my head. Lyrically, this album is as deep as any other King's X release, but musically I think it falls short. In many cases, the odd timing that I like so much about their music sounds forced, as if they said 'Hey, people like when we have weird chord changes, let's make an album full of them.' Don't get me wrong, I'll still listen to it, but it will not be in the King's X top 5. Anyway, I was disapointed. Well, the CD is repeating for the 6th time, so I'd better go. I give it 2.5 stars
