Please Come Home… Mr. Bulbous is the eighth studio album by Americanheavy metal/hard rock band King´s X. Starting with 1998’s Tape Head, King’s X would write and self-record new material in the studio. The following album Please Come Home…Mr. Bulbous was done the same way, in a quick time frame of under two months. On Tape Head they captured tremendous energy and groove with that method. Perhaps the drawback to this approach is that you have less time to live with and tighten up the songwriting. On the other hand, on Mr. Bulbous it sounds like songwriting was a minor concern next to instrumental experimentation.
Recommended for fans of Platypus, Dream Theater, Dixie Dregs, Winger.
