)After a three year hiatus, King James return with their second album to date. Consisting of the same core members made up of Jimi Bennett (lead vox)And(Rex Carroll (ex-Whitecross)Guitarist Rex Carroll, ĎThe Fallí features Scott Banks (bass/vox) with skin being split between Dave Geer and Michael Feighan.Produced and recorded by Rex, helped out by one Tim Bushong (Lovewar/The Channel Surfers)The overall tone of the album is tight; showcasing some superb musicianship.Both the drums and bass mix well together, forming a solid platform upon which Rex builds.Compared to the bandís self titled debut album, ĎThe Fallí adequately realizes the pent up raw intensity of sound that ĎKing Jamesí hinted at. It has taken me a few spins to appreciate this disc, however, I cannot help but feel that this sound is a little dated and that Jimiís vocals, whilst passionate,donít always hit the mark.Overall though, a good album.Ah, now that's more like it. Heavy and crunchy, the way metal is suppose to be played. Even Jimi's vocals are heavier, with a bit more bite than on the self titled debut. Rex Carroll and Jimi Bennett are still on board, but Robert and Tim jumped ship a long time ago.This one had been released by a number of different record companies.
