Album Review

On the second album to be credited solely to King's X singer/bassist Doug Pinnick (or as he's listed on the cover, "Dug"), 2007's Strum Sum Up, you get a collection of heavy yet soulful ditties that — perhaps rather unsurprisingly — sound very reminiscent of his full-time band. This can be pinpointed to the heavy/detuned guitar riffs and multi-voiced choruses — two factors that have proven major ingredients in the King's X sound for ages by this point. Some rockers launch solo careers to display tunes that don't fit in the frameworks of their full-time gigs, but here it's probably just having too many songs to choose from for the next King's X release (or songs that were left over from the last one). Longtime King's X fans will attest that isn't necessarily a bad thing, as evidenced by such tracks as "Perfect World," "Damn It," and "Angel." Years from now, don't be surprised if fans consider Strum Sum Up a lost King's X record.

Customer Reviews

Great Album!!

I'm a long time KX fan and I've got to say this is some of my favorite material from Doug in years, far surpassing Emotional Animal in my opinion. He recruits some great musicians for this album and it shows. "Perfect World", "Damn It", and "Life is What You Make It" are stand outs.


This CD delivers what music is missing today. Balls and Groove! This Cd brings out a vibe and feel lost in recordings today. Its honest and genuine. Luv Dug and Kings X. Rock ON!

Best Ever!

I've listened to King's X for years. I have Dug's first solo record. This is by far the best ever! Dug has outdone himself and held nothing back. This beats anything I've ever heard.
