Gretchen Goes To Nebraska was my introduction to this fantastic rock group. Over my head" is a beautiful anthem that never wears out. This 2nd album is the first in a series of stunning releases from the trio.

It seemed inconceivable that Houston's King's X would ever top the brilliance and originality of their debut, but 1989's Gretchen Goes to Nebraska did just that, taking their unique sound to unprecedented heights of invention and inspiration. With its interweaving vocals, ominous bass riff, and sitar flourishes, the dark "Out of the Silent Planet" truly sounds not of this earth.

King's X have created a spiritual, metallic masterpiece with their second record. Unique in its time, this is a record of rock n’ roll that is very dark, moody, and catchy. "Over My Head" is the band's defining song, and with good reason- it is a memorable soul-metal spiritual about the greatest thing there is- music! Other songs on here range from soft ballads like "Summerland", "The Burning Down" and "The Difference", to anthems like "Fall On Me", my personal favorite "Don't Believe It", and also questions about life like "Mission", "Pleiades" and "Send a Message". Gretchen has a great mixture of softer songs and hard rockers, and the melodies on here are unforgettable. Lyrics set the mood on songs like "Mission", with its talk about hypocrites in the church, and "Pleiades" with talk about existence but creates more in the dark context of the atmospheric music then any words ever could; one truly feels transported to outer space in this tune. All of the before mentioned songs build upon Out of the Silent Planet's mix of pop and heaviness to a better result, each song is more consistent and more full (not to say that the debut was a bad album, far from it). It is interesting to note this albums influence on the upcoming grunge scene also, as one listen to "Out of the Silent Planet" will easily recall Alice in Chains. "Everybody Knows a Little Bit of Something" is the sole stumble, the song that sticks out like a sore thumb to me. Overall, Gretchen is a great listen and a very spiritual one; it creates a world where you feel like you are traveling through space hearing angelic voices that I...cannot explain. Pop metal at its best, this is the template for future King's X records and the pinnacle of their career.
Kings X should be a bigger deal. They should be talked about in the same reverence as Rush with a wider audience. But they are not, but those in the know can take solace in the fact that a band like this can still thrive on a cult following. This is their masterpiece. A spiritual metal album a rare thing but one that deserves all the praise it gets. The first time I heard this band was catching their performance at Woodstock 94 on MTV, so I was late to the party on them. But it's one of the reasons I miss old MTV I'd never hear a band like this today on "music television".
