The news of the formation of the band KXM were exciting. With the members Dug Pinnick (King’s X) on bass and vocals, George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob, Sweet & Lynch) on guitars and drummer Ray Luzier (Korn, David Lee Roth) I expected the debut record that came out in 2014 to be a real killer. It wasn’t a killer but it was an interesting piece of music that didn’t stick by first listen – a grower. I liked it when it came out but truth be told, I really haven’t given the album much thought in a few years. KXM also released a follow-up in 2017 called Scatterbrain, an album that completely passed me by. I didn’t know it existed until I started writing this review. Now, with a third effort out, I really don’t have any expectations at all – which do not mean I’m blasé about it – but my hope is up that they will deliver the goods this time.
