King's X lie somewhere between progressive rock and hard rock, and nowhere is that more evident than on this album. They're at their best when rocking out, as on the fast, acrobatic "Moanjam," which occasionally reminds one of Queen's "Headlong." With the slower, delicate "Six Broken Soldiers," they veer more toward Pink Floyd territory; "Fine Art of Friendship" has a fine midtempo groove and some excellent riffs. King's X enjoy harmonizing, as just about every song includes backing vocals, or else two or more of the band members share the lead. The only problem here is that they overdo it, making what could be a series of special moments into just another effect. This, coupled with overly slick production, prevents Faith Hope Love from being a great album. However, it is good, with some fine moments that help make up for its shortcomings. --Genevieve Williams

This is the third album from King's X following "Out of the silent planet" (1988) and "Gretchen goes to Nebraska" (1989).

For me Kings X were the most original band in the late 80's / early 90's. This and "Gretchen" are real classics. From the very start the guitar and bass riffs are bold and melodic and the vocals (both lead and backing) are just sheer brilliance.

The opening track ("We are finding who we are") is melodic hard rock at it's best with great changes in timing and complex arrangements of instruments and vocals. From there it just gets better, in fact the opening 5 tracks offer as much diversity and musicianship that it just reminds me 16 years on how unbelievable it all sounded. Certainly `We are finding...", and "It's Love" were catchy enough to be listened to a larger radio audience and the beauty in "Fine Art of Friendship" and "Mr Wilson" showcased a band capable of creating new and diverse soundscapes that for me at the time were real "Wow" factors. "Moanjam" is a real out and out rocker, followed by a real highlight "Six Broken Soldiers" where again the vocal arrangements and overall musicianship have to be heard to be believed. The 9 minute plus "Faith, Hope Love" is yet another highlight, the band producing a real tension filled epic.

Overall I look back at the early 90's and whilst I enjoyed the bulk of Living Color's "Vivid" album from 1988, a fair chunk of Faith No More's "Epic" release from 1990, most of Mother Lovebone, Temple of the Dog, and subsequently Pearl Jam's first two releases ("10" 1991 and V's 1993), it is this album and "Gretchen" that I return to more often than anything else from this time period.

In the CD copy of the Faith Hope Love I have owned for 17 years, is a dollar bill signed by Doug Pinnick and Jerry Gaskill (because Ty Tabor never came out of the tour bus - he probably still doesn't). And I remember them looking at me puzzled when I asked them to sign it, but just had to explain ... it's the only piece of paper I got. It is also the only 'rock' signature/autograph I have ever possessed. I have never sought out those I admired, bought and respected. No hanging out at the airport or hotel lobby, or waiting around their second home's garden gates waiting to catch a glimpse. Except for King's X. I'd wait around after their shows with a whole host of other fans, hoping to tell them how much I loved them and that they mattered in my life. They were worth it. They required a signature. And sometimes, I just open up the CD case, and take out that dollar bill, and look at the signatures of Doug Pinnick and Jerry Gaskill covering up the founding father's visage, and remember what it was like to love a band that much.

FAITH HOPE LOVE is a far different affair than its predecessor 'Gretchen Goes To Nebraska'. 'Gretchen' tended to keep within a particular framework and its songs all had a persisting need to be heard with eachother. They complimented one another in the King's X 'sound' of 1989. The listener could tell the band was growing and expanding this 'sound' with one listen to its predecessor 'Out of the Silent Planet', far simpler in execution with less instrument augmentations. Faith Hope Love takes this 'sound' and experiments with it, sometimes with leaps, often with bounds, and with great talent and vision.

I got my first taste of King's X from the Summerland video on Headbanger's Ball off of their "Gretchen Goes to Nebraska" album. Within a week I had both that and their debut, "Out of the Silent Planet", in my collection. I remember feeling pretty antsy about wanting to pick up "Faith Hope Love" - and after seeing the video for It's Love I was even more juiced to buy it.

Super album. Certainly not flawless, but the great moments outshine the mediocre ones by far.

Like everyone below has said, King's X has that Beatlesque-style harmonizing with the vocals. But they're not in every song. And I disagree with those below who've said that there's a funk sound to the metal. I don't hear that at all. When I think of funk-metal I think of "Extreme II: Pornograffitti" or "Mindfunk". What I DO hear is a soul influence, specifically from Doug Pinnick's voice. It's not as much in the music as it is in the vocal inflection.

As for the musicality, yes, this is only a three piece band! Like Cream or Rush they don't need no stinkin' fourth member! And, as a band with such a complete sound from only three members, each player has to stand on their own - and they do. Pinnick is his standard godlike self no matter if he's playing 4, 8 or 12-strings. Ty Tabor is given plenty of room to go off on guitar (on Moanjam, watch your foot on the accelerator if you have this playing in the car!) Jerry Gaskill keeps complex time throughout (I especially love the constant time changes for the last 1:45 of We Were Born To Be Loved).

As to the low points - Ty's falsetto on Six Broken Soldiers detracts from overall impact of what should be a great song. The title track drags a bit.
