After being such a huge King's X fan since their first release in 1988, this cd was met with a little reserve after their last two cd's ended up being minor dissapointments. What a relief to open this cd up and once again be mesmerized by the elements that make this band one of the best in the world. Keep in mind that this is a slightly different King's X, lyrically. Ty Tabor really wears his heart on his sleeve on this cd, and the band is much better for it. The music once again sounds fresh, and the band doesn't sound like a retread of their old selves as on 'Tape Head'. The songs deal with heartbreak (She's Gone Away, Charlie Sheen, and Bitter Sweet) and questioning faith and life in general (Fish Bowl Man, Smudge and Marsh Mellow Field). Every song on the disc is a keeper and the band sounds sharper instrumentally than they have in years. Ty Tabor hasn't done this many solos since their self titled effort of '92. The disc ends with possibly the best track (Move Me, in two parts), questioning God and asking for a sign to reaffirm one's faith. Much darker than past cd's, but a very moving experience, none the less. Now if one could just figure out the odd phrases between each song in Japanese and German...

Great producers are seasoned with time. If you don't believe me, listen to the arrangements and sonic quality of the self titled record, Dogman, and even Ear Candy. All done by different producers, but have a common thread.....EXPERIENCE! Now, listen to Tape Head, recorded and produced by Ty Tabor and King's X. Unless you're thick headed, you will notice the lack of experience on that record. Think about it; the band is in full charge for the first time in their career. Which brings us to "Please Come Home Mr. Bulbous", the 8th studio release and the 2nd time the band is in charge of writing, recording, and producing. This record is a giant step forward for King's X. They are much more aware of the tasks at hand; Ty is getting mighty handy at the console and the drum sounds are far and away better than on Tape Head. Yes, Ty Tabor will be on the list of great producers very soon. As for the songs on 'Mr. Bulbous', that's a personal thing. Some fans will love them, some will say they dwell on the negative, but most will dig the music simply because it's King's X. Highlights include, 'She's Gone Away', which deals with love lost, the beautiful 'Bittersweet' and a fine single called 'Marsh Mellow Field'. Let's get something straight, this is not, I repeat, NOT Gretchen Goes to Nebraska. Mr. Bulbous is dark, and it's also melodic; it's light and it's brutally heavy at times.......it's King's X in the year 2000, and it's the beginning of a very beautiful thing.

I must say that this new cd by the greatest band in the world, is very, very good indeed! Despite the fact that some fans didn't care for some of the recent albums, i.e. Ear Candy and Tape Head, which I think were excellent (especially Tape Head). I must say that I am very proud that King's X has gone back to their original sound with the three part harmonies, i.e. "Move Me" parts 1 and 2. Also, there is more guitar work on this album from Ty than ever before and its very reminiscent of their self-titled release. I also think there is a lot of influence from Ty's side project Platypus (mainly in the guitar riffs/solos). Every song on this album flows together just like "Faith, Hope, Love" and "King's X".
I am very proud to hear the soul and faith searching and strengthening lyrics again on a King's X Cd. If you have heard this yet you need to get it now because you won't be able to pull it from your cd player!

I didn't remember a note of this album the first time I finished playing it. Almost no big hooks, fuzzy production, few soaring vocal harmonies, et cetera, et cetera. But, like many good albums, _Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous_, revealed to me its attractive musical trimmings slowly over time. I really like this CD. While it does in ways seem to be a continuation of the groove dominated sound of _Tape Head_, this release is also darker and heavier. The bass-heavy production seemed weak at first, as rock gets its kick from a balance of trebles and bass (but try telling that to the kids and their sub-woofers, neurhg) - however, I later found that the gritty, rumbling grooves of the album fit nicely with the thick bass-dominant sound.
Outstanding grooves are omnipresent on _Mr. Bulbous_, attributable to the band's amazing synergy and great writing. Take the opener, "Fish Bowl Man". It opens up the album with a sigh of feedback before the main rhythm comes together. Here, Pinnick's bass takes random stabs through the gruff rhythm and Gaskill's odd-time beat is strangely hypnotic. Mm, groovy sauce! The tune is not just groovy, it's quite uncanny: the weird (and catchy) chorus, the spooky spoken-word bridge, and the reflective metaphorical lyrics.
A highlight among highlights is the guitar sunshine and fantastic layered vocal arrangements of a tune titled... "Charlie Sheen" (?huh?). I also really like the soaring guitar hooks of "She's Gone Away", which also has an outstanding, boiling solo soaked in a bluesy juice, placed atop a groovy groundwork of deep-toned rhythm. The 10-minute "Move Me", split into two tracks, pulls all the stops - heavy duty riffs, psychedelic guitar, and freewheeling rhythm.
