Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 106

ARTIST:  King's X
ORIGIN:  Springfield, MO (United States)
TITLE:  Dogman
LABEL:  Atlantic Records
YEAR:  1994
GENRE:  Heavy Metal/Hard Rock
NOTES:  I had always heard a lot of great things about King's X.  The couple of songs I had heard from soundtracks to that point certainly had not done anything to change that impression.  Unfortunately I have always found this album a little underwhelming.  There is certainly nothing musically wrong with it.  The trio are terrific musicians.  However some of the songs just fall a little flat.  There are some damn good songs here and the performances are very impressive.  It just seems that the sum of the parts is not as great as the individual parts.
