is in fact the single greatest hard rock album ever recorded.

I disagree in that I think Ear Candy was thier last shot at "big time". That record was MADE to be more accessable to the masses. (i.e. mississippi moon). Dogman is probably my favorite KingsX album though.the 'Dogman' album was really the beginning of the second phase of King's X. They were moving toward a more straight ahead rock sound even on the 'King's X' album, but 'Dogman' really brought it home. Huge Brenden O'Brien production who was just coming off big success with STP. King's X were definitely trying to break into the mainstream and I think it was kind of like their real last shot at going big time.
Agree 100% on all points......Dogman is my favorite King's X album, why they are not a household name in the rock genre is beyond me. I sure hope the next generation will rediscover them. They are criminally underrated as a band.
Nah, not at all.......Sorry. Huge King's X fan here, and I cannot agree. After Out of the Silent Planet, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska and Faith Hope Love, Dogman was a tremendous disappointment. While I concur that Ty does get some great tones on it, Dogman pales in comparison to King's X first three albums, which I felt was their best and most creative work. Dogman was the disc I was counting on to bring them back after their mediocre 4th album, and it was clear in my mind that something had gone horribly wrong with their musical direction. Thankfully Ear Candy had much of the old sound on it, and that was pretty much the last time they wrote & recorded any songs in that great original style.
I'm just the opposite. Dogman was my first, and the next one I got was Faith Hope Love, and the difference was so startling, it took a long time for me to get used to it. I didn't like Ty's tone on that one at all, way too thin and "Stratty". I like it now, but Dogman's still better.Sorry. Huge King's X fan here, and I cannot agree.
