Album Review

On his first two solo outings, 1998's Massive Grooves From the Electric Church of Psychofunkadelic Grungelism Rock Music and 2001's Pineappleskunk, King's X leader Doug Pinnick pulled a bit of a blunder. No, the error wasn't anything musical, but rather, in the marketing: both releases were credited to the alias "Poundhound" rather than Pinnick's real name, resulting in only hardcore King's X fans knowing about the releases. For his third solo outing, 2005's Emotional Animal, the bassist-turned-guitarist has opted to finally go by Doug Pinnick.

Interestingly though, Zeppelin rarely bubbled to the surface in the varied and rich sounds of King's X (who over the years have touched upon similar styles by everyone from Queen to Sly Stone). Other detours include the gospel sounds of "Equal Rights" and the bare-boned "When You Gonna Come." In addition to his seemingly non-stop touring schedule with King's X, Doug Pinnick has plenty of leftovers, which provide worthwhile material, as evidenced by Emotional Animal.
