Existing comments about this CD

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 30, 2015 at 22:57
The tight, catchy songwriting from King Of The Road continues, along with an even further rolling-back of the trippier aspects of the Fu Manchu sound. Some called it a sellout, an attempt to achieve commercial success--I dunno. It still sounds like Fu Manchu, with those lazy Ace Frehley-style vocals and simple infectious riffs. The productio is just cleaner, not sounding like the music's been left in a hot car to melt all afternoon. Highlights are "Separate Kingdom," "Mongoose," "Thinkin' Out loud," "Bultaco"--really everything, but the whole doesn't give me the same buzz King Of The Road did.
