Ear Candy (King's X album). The song "Mississippi Moon" is mainly inspired on the song "If I Could Fly", which King's X played in shows after they had changed their name to its definite version, King's X. The bonus track "Freedom" can also be found as a b-side of the single "A Box". It was later given a proper release on the album Ogre Tones.

Ear Candy ‎(CD, Album, RE). Wounded Bird Records.

Ear Candy is a very good King's X album, though overall not quite matching previous albums, but a handful of tracks can stand shoulder to shoulder with, if not quite their best, then the majority of material before. It's also a far superior album to what was to come over the next few releases.

On first listen, it is easy to hear that Ear Candy is a transitional album. The first time i listened to it I was misled to what the core of the record would sound like because "The Train" is always known as the "best" song. Very generic, and what the hell are they even talking about on that song? "Leave all your bags and tighten up your metal belt/You leave us all behind, you start to feel the pain." Those lyrics make no sense! There are at least five better songs on here, and they don't sound like that. Those are "What am I Gonna Do", "A Box", "Looking for Love" (great metal pop), and "Mississippi Moon". And oh yeah, "Run" is pretty good. With these songs, the band pushes their sound forward in to the realm of melodies that are friendly without losing any of their artistic integrity. The remainder is not so good, and way to happy and almost giddy for this band, similar to how Dogman was too metallic. They are great when they mix the two sounds into a polished blend, but the difference is this is mostly pop and the music is just not up to snuff. Lyrics aren't too great either on Ear Candy; "Fathers" is hilariously bad on its own. But about half of the album’s songs are great, and it remains an interesting listen for the die hard fans to seek out. Fitting album title too, it sums the record as background music that is occasionally interesting but mostly forgettable.
