Wow BG.... you just keep on suprising me.

What are you thoughts on King's X, btw?

I think they just keep on getting better and better, "Tape Head" being a bit of an average album (being polite here ;) for them.

Did you know that Dime was a King's X / Ty Tabor fan and their music worked as an inspiration for stuff like "This Love" and "I'm Broken"?
