    When King's X came on the scene in 1987, it was a striking breath of fresh air. Here was a new sound, melding the 60s (Sly & The Family Stone, Beatles), 70s (Grand Funk Railroad), and 80s (Metallica) into something brand new; and it was done from the perspective of believers and seekers. I remember thinking that this was a new wind of God's Spirit that was blowing across the land. Without being a utilitarian "tool" to preach or evangelize, here was the best art of its kind emanating from a believing voice. This is the kind of stuff Christian artists have been dreaming about doing for years -- impacting their culture with excellent art.

    As time wore on, this band has changed. They no longer seem to be united in philosophical direction, but the band keeps functioning as a union in the name of good art. Forget that their low end rumble was picked up on and ripped off by Seattle. Forget that these guys are old now. They still have the respect of musicians everywhere and they continue to earn respect from common music fans by consistently touring, opening for new bands and playing in front of audiences that don't already know who they are. - HM
