Editorial Reviews

The first solo album by the legendary King's X drummer, Come Somewhere gives Jerry Gaskill a chance to showcase not only his superb drumming but his lead vocal abilities as well. Jerry is aided by King's X bandmate Ty Tabor on guitars and production.

This album is full of irresistibly catchy melodies.
Mr. S. St Thomas
Enough of that... Musically this album is different from what I expected, very John Lennon guitar pop type stuff in most places.
Evan T. Gibson
A great album can be listened to in one gulp, prepare to swallow.

This album has caught me completely off-guard.

I didn't know what to expect from the drummer of one of my favourite bands in my life. It was expected that I'd buy it, but what I was buying I was unsure of. Gaskill's presence as a songwriter for King's X seems mostly evident in the songs 'American Cheese' from Ear Candy, and 'Six Broken Soldiers' from Faith Hope Love. Two songs in a nearly 20 year recording career is not a lot to go on. But his voice was always distinguishable in King's X, so I knew what I was getting in that at least.

I am a huge fan of Doug Pinnick's Poundhound albums, particularly Pineappleskunk, and I bought both of those releases when they came out. I am a later fan of Ty Tabor's solo work, having just recently purchased both Safety and Moonflower Lane. I had owned Naomi's Solar Pumpkin since its release in 1997, but I have to be honest and say that it didn't particularly floor me at the time. I took a recent listen to it, realised it was actually very good, which prompted me to buy his 'official' releases. Gaskill's album I picked up a little while after its initial release.

Since I bought it, it has not been off my cd player in weeks. I can listen to this album once, twice, or three times in a row, and have at times. I am slowly coming to the conclusion that this album has become my favourite of the King's X solo releases, though I have been an admitted fan of anything Pinnick does solo anyway. There is a certain something that Gaskill has captured on this CD that I haven't heard on a King's X album in about 3 years, maybe even longer, maybe 12 years.

The songs are mostly all acoustic based, and the heavy sections only appear when needed.

After waiting years(I think Jerry first mentioned a solo album back when Doug and Ty did their first ones)I catch my first listen to "Come Somewhere" by King's X skinman Jerry Gaskill. I wasn't sure what to expect at first. All we ever heard from Jerry in the past was "Six Broken Soldiers" and "American Cheese". First off let me say that nothing on here sounds like "Soldiers". But that's in no way a bad thing. What you get is several layers of Jerry's fine acoustic guitar playing and drumming and a dash here and there of Ty's electric guitar and subtle keyboards. A fine bake indeed. Vocally Jerry sounds pretty much like you'd expect. "A nasally version of Ty" a friend of mine once said. This is true but Jerry's songwriting is different than Ty's. The whole album has an unpredicatble John Lennon quality. There'll be a nice straight- ahead acoustic riff thing going on and then all of a sudden an "I Am The Walrus bridge" comes swirling through the speakers. This is very evident on "She's Cool". Some of the tracks have that "American Cheese" vocal melody but elsewhere this is a Jerry Gaskill that none of us have heard before. From what I can gather from most of the lyrics he's been divorced. I guess he got the kids because tracks 1 and 3 both talk about that. Bottom line is that this is a great album and is my favorite of 2004 so far. King's X does it again!!!

This is Jerry Gaskill's first solo outing. I think he feels right at home behind the drum kit singing lead vocals. Come Somewhere is his new album featuring Ty Tabor, his band mate in King's X. Tabor steps up and helps out with some exceptional guitar work and certainly makes Gaskill feel right at home. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this music sounds similar to King's X, and that is a good thing because familiarity can help you at times, and in this case I think it does.
Gaskill does his best impression of Phil Collins and Nick D'Virgillio by putting out an awesome solo album and catching everyone off guard with how good his vocals are. The King's X influences are ever-present with the hard rockin' riffs and Beatlesque sounds hovering around the fringes at all times. It is a remarkably appealing combination of rhythm, melody, and straight ahead rock with biting lyrics to get both hemispheres in your brain working.
I found the CD cover art very thought provoking. It could have many meanings dependent upon your own personal point of view or your place in life. Possibly the image of the woman relates to loneliness and baring your naked soul in a (nearly) empty room, so everyone in the world can see you totally revealed, then hopefully someone will come along and take you by the hand and show you a better way towards the light of life and living. The naked woman all curled up in a ball in a corner, looks very frightened, and she seems to need help. The picture certainly opens the door for many thoughts and ideas to the underlying theme of this project.
In "L.A. Flight," Gaskill sings about changing the pain from black to white, which is an interesting play on words and something to reflect upon.

This one has been a long time Come(ing). Jerry (the legendary drummer of the oft underappreciated by the masses, loved by musicians King's X) finally unleashes his solo work. A great album can be listened to in one gulp, prepare to swallow. While some of the latest King's X efforts have been a bit lackluster this one strides home in it's focus and overall attention to the feel as an "album". This isnt (or doesnt listen like it is) a collection of songs that jerry has had brewing over the years. It owes much in direction to the beatles and led zep (think of their acoustic guitar material). The acoustic is very prevalent here.. and for a drummer's solo album (usually the kiss of death) we are treated to a virtual lesson in song writing with conviction first, chops a very little considered component. It is solid chops wise.. but if that is all you are looking for, look somewhere else. Jerry brings a unique inflection to his vocals and lyric delivery, often choosing odd ways to break up syllables rather than get stuck in basic (and trite) rythymic patterns (ie a/b a/b rhyme patterns). The lyrics can be read so many different ways.. or not read at all, they arent required as a component to enjoy the album but are a surprising extra layer of depth to be enjoyed if you want to delve deeper than a casual listen in the car. This is a pretty mellow album with it's moments of heavier riffs... but more trippy than bangy. It almost presents itself as one long song (or story). There are a few sinister type of moments (like "crazy") but they are not full out thrash, almost more of a creeping tempo.
The CD art is solid and over all well packaged.
