Customer Reviews

It was simply recorded *way* too loud and as a result, listenability suffers.
Jonathan D. Worth
This CD from Dug is good, but it's going to probably take you a few times listening to it to fully digest some of the things that he's doing.
Chad Stewart
The lyrics to most of the songs on this album are real, beautiful and personal.

I made sure I listened to this cd a few more times before I wrote my review...'cause I was pretty sure what I initially thought about this record would not last. Doug Pinnick is far and away my favorite musician. And having listened to him for oh so many years now....I've learned that so often his and King's X's material just keeps growing on me the more I listen to it. Such is the case with Emotional Animal. Pinnick's lyrics are always very personal and equally thoughtful. If you were to go through the entire King's X catalog(along with Poundhound), you can hear it all unfold like his autobiography, early on with his beliefs in religion and eventually evolving into belief in himself. Emotional Animal is the latest chapter and is in fact one his best efforts. My only reason for not giving it five stars is simply because there is one or two songs that didn't do much for me and quite franky, I think he missed greatness on a couple of others by stopping too soon. "Wrong" is a one minute a capella melody that is so rich and so good. Could have been the best song on the cd. But it's over before you can say "Great song!". "Mr. Hateyourself" is also a nice groove that ends way too soon. Other than that, just a great, great record. "Beautiful" is the one I can't stop singing. Other highlights are "Crashing", "Change", "Missing", and the atmospheric "Noon". Also check out "Haven't Been Here Before", which aside from "Beautiful", would be my second favorite. There are also two bonus songs found when played on your computer, "Saturdays" and "Die". "Saturdays" is fantastic. It's a shame this record will undoubtedly not be heard by the masses. It deserves to be.

Any King's X fan knows that the two albums Doug Pinnick released under the Poundhound moniker were nothing but absolute solo discs that allowed him to explore different aspects of songwriting and offer his great legion of fans a more personal side of his music. Emotional Animal is still a solo album; it just got released under Pinnick's own name (except that he likes to spell his name as dUg rather than Doug) and he is still the man responsible for everything on it. As with the two Poundhound discs, he has written all lyrics and music, played all instruments with the exception of drums, and even recorded and mixed the album on his own. Before going into the details, I have to point out that the production on Emotional Animal is incredibly tight, with great sonic quality and sound separation. You'll hear various elements popping out from all different angles at various times with great dynamics. It's really awesome.

On Emotional Animal, Doug Pinnick continues to use his solo albums as a medium to push his music into unexplored directions. Although the album does share some common themes with the Poundhound records, this one is less groovy and more experimental. The songs are forthright and do not emphasize Pinnick's amazing multi-vocal harmonies heard on King's X stuff. On the contrary, Pinnick opts for a more profound musical statement by disregarding standard songwriting formulas, and forming a solid hybrid of rock, funk, grunge, alternative and pop. His voice is still among rock's most soulful ever and his lyrics are extremely personal.

If you are here looking at this review, then you probably already know that dUg Pinnick, who recently changed the spelling of his first name from 'Doug' to 'dUg' (emphasis on 'U'), comes from the Texas group King's X. If you know that, then you're probably a fan and if you're a fan then you definitely don't let other people tell you what what you should like! So, reviews probably don't mean much to you! :-)

But, from one King's X fan to another, here are some thoughts and reflections on dUg's new album.

I've always throught of Doug as the heart and blood of King's X. As such, his solo music is kind of like King's X unleashed. Those of you familiar with his PoundHound albums will recall the deep, grungy grooves that he gets into, the massive low-end and the unchecked emotion that pours out. Well, with no less heart (in fact, if possible, more), this album is a ton more sophisticated sonically and a bit more beautiful and rounded in terms of the music itself.

The songs themselves are works of art with all of the low-end you would expect, more rich beauty than we're used to and some absolutely beautiful vocal harmonies (my personal weakness). dUg achieved more varied sounds throughout the album this time around and his legendary voice always finds that nerve that leads right to your ears to your heart.

The engineering is tremendous. I have no idea how this was done, but the sound spectrum is completely utilized producing richness that is unlike anything I've ever heard in an album of this kind. Sounds are always popping out from different directions and dUg's voice is doubled with a stereo separation that makes it sparkle like a diamond.
