King's X
Live All Over the Place (Metal Blade Records)

By: Mike SOS

Hard to believe, but after 23 years of underground accolades with minimal but effective mainstream exposure, the veritable hard rock workhorse known as King's X have yet to release a live album. Until now, that is, as Live All Over the Place chronicles a plethora of live shows (some dated back to 1994) on a twin disc collection guaranteed to put you in the crowd of the Texas trio's captivating gig. Featuring an acoustic and two electric sets chock full of quality rock performed with all the skill you'd expect from Ty Tabor, Doug Pinnick, and Jerry Gaskill, the 25-track album is as close as you can get to the band responsible for such rock staples as "Over My Head", "Dogman", and "Summerland". Want to experience being in the front row at a King's X show without leaving your room? Live All Over the Place flawlessly delivers that experience, with some surprises (like a jam on Hendrix's "Manic Depression" with Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam) to boot.
