On his third if not sixth solo joint, King's X's king confronts insanity and technology while risking rapcore hysterics and emo confession -- the latter most uncomfortably in "What You Gonna Do?," where he laments lacking insurance and savings and money to meet his mortgage. Soon he's worrying depression might turn you atheist, but mostly he refines his time-tested funk/prog/flower-grunge art-metal amalgam -- ornate here, rustic there, swiping an insomniac staccato Chicago-via-Green Day riff in "Take Me Away From You," letting solos stretch to seven minutes in "I Hope I Don't Lose My Mind."
