Album Review

Longtime King's X vocalist/bassist Doug Pinnick steps into the spotlight via his very first solo project, Poundhound. Whereas his fellow bandmember Ty Tabor's solo album (Moonflower Lane) is more about sunny melodicism and songcraft à la the Beatles, Pinnick's album Massive Grooves from the Electric Church of Psychofunkadelic Grungelism Rock Music is a "darker" affair that stresses the importance of the almighty groove. Pinnick has always been one of the most groove-heavy bassists of rock, no doubt due to the use of a 12-string bass and an influence from funk music. While King's X-like vocal melodies do crop up on the tracks "Soul" and "Love," other songs like "Shake," "Music," and "Darker" are more straightforward, hitting you on a gut level. Massive Grooves deals with the not always pleasant topics of alienation, loss, and regret; "Friends" discusses several of Pinnick's real-life "friends," one who "cuts himself to numb the pain," another who is "going to die in jail," and a third who witnessed his father murder his mother as a youngster. But by album's end, Pinnick has resolved some of his issues, as evidenced by the soothing, subtle gospel sounds of "River." ~ [The CD was also released with a bonus track.]

This is a great cd. My Personal favorite songs on the cd are jangle, shake, music, and blindeye. It's too bad the second cd is terrible.

One has to wonder

Just why X, and thus Dug hasn't reached the acclaimed status that they deserve. I suppose the financial hardships of not hitting the big time led both he and Ty to their solo projects, which I think is a good thing and probably only makes their X albums even stronger. This effort by Dug has a lot of good qualities to it; his voice, the rhythm, the song crafting, it's all there. However, as Dug is no slouch on guitar, he's lacking something in the production that just misses a tad bit. Maybe it's the overdubs of his vocals more than even Enya does, who knows. But, all in all, I liked the album.

Hey

This album has some good lyrics, wish it had a greater popularity on itunes though
