All Music Guide - Greg Prato
X's 1987 release See How We Are saw the band hook up with new guitarist Tony Gilkyson, who replaced original member Billy Zoom. Since the two guitarists had a similar style (punk and rockabilly), Gilkyson fit in quite well. Instead of returning to their previous producer Michael Wagener, the group enlisted the help of newcomer Alvin Clark, who merges the punk sound of X's earlier work with Wagener's glossy approach. Included as the title track is one of X's all-time best ballads -- proof of how beautiful and affecting John Doe and Exene Cervenka's vocal harmonies can be. Also featured are the anthemic rocker "4th of July" (written by ex-Blasters and sometimes X fill-in ...

Also featured are the anthemic rocker "4th of July" (written by ex-Blasters and sometimes X fill-in guitarist Dave Alvin), and the standouts "In the Time It Takes," "I'm Lost," and "Surprise Surprise." Although they were still penning fine tunes and giving great concerts (as evidenced by the 1988 live set Live at the Whiskey a Go-Go), X would take several years off after wrapping up the tour for See How We Are, not issuing a new studio album until 1993. [The album was re-issued in 2002 with five bonus tracks.]

    Outstanding as Usual

    X returns with new guitarist Tony Gilkyson to fill what many fans believed would be an enormous hole left by Billy Zoom's departure. Fortunately, Gilkyson more than meets the challenge. His classic rockabilly and alt-country licks seem to open up X's sound in surprisingly refreshing ways. From the pop tear-off of "You" (which is as good or better than anything from the period by a female vocalist that was getting regular radio rotation), to the hard living "I'm Lost" and "In The Time It Takes"; add the beautiful rocker "4th of July" written songsmith Dave Alvin, and the perfectly arranged and performed "See How We Are" and you've got an American band sounding at once fresh and yet fully mature. The extra material on the Rhino release is a treasure, especially the great cover of Dylan's "Highway 61" MOONHOG REVIEW
