Album Review

Although the Jimmy Swaggart/Jim Baker crowd was quick to denounce heavy metal in general as a tool of Satanism, a number of headbangers have used metal to promote Christianity, including Stryper, the Resurrection Band, Contagious, and King's X. Quite often, King's X did so in such a subliminal fashion that they fared as well in the secular market as they did in Christian circles. While Faith Hope Love isn't quite as strong as Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, the CD illustrates the band's imaginative, ambitious nature and proved to be its commercial breakthrough. Tracks like "Six Broken Soldiers," "Fine Art of Friendship," and the hit "It's Love" may have been inspired by Christianity, but they don't force it down anyone's throat. The lyrics are never preachy or obnoxious, which explains why those practicing Judaism, Islam, or Hinduism won't find the rockers' striking blend of metal, progressive rock, and Beatlesque power pop off-putting.

Customer Reviews

Faith Hope Love

This album rocks! If you like metal, and cool guitar riffs, you'll dig this one! Just play the first song and you're hooked!

My Favorite King

If I had to sum King's X's sound up to anyone who had never heard them before, I would play them this album. Air-tight vocal harmonies, heavy guitar riffs, excellent songwriting and top-notch musicianship --- Faith Hope Love has it all! If you're a fan of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and The Beatles, you'll love King's X, and you'll dig this record. They're one of the best three-piece bands you'll ever hear.

Oh my god!

I've been a musician for over thirty years...having the chance to play and watch some of the best in many genras live. I've never seen a trio that can lock and groove like King's X!

Few hard rock bands are as widely respected yet criminally overlooked as King's X. The trio (bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick, guitarist/vocalist Ty Tabor, and drummer/vocalist Jerry Gaskill) seemed destined for the big time with their irresistible blend of melodic Beatlesque harmonies, metallic riffing, and prog rock detours, yet for reasons unknown, never truly broke through to a mainstream audience. Pinnick (b. September 3, 1950) first met Gaskill (b. December 27, 1957) when the duo was touring with...
