I’d never heard of King Khan or The Shrines before Dustin recommended this album. It was fun, but it was also all over the map. At it’s best it reminded me of a song by The Dirtbombs that was uptempo and fun and great. Unfortunately, like the only Dirtbombs songs I’ve heard, the recording quality was often pretty bad. In the case of The Ballad of Lady Godiva it was downright unlistenable. On the better tracks like Land of the Freak, I was having too good a time to care. I’d definitely come back to some of these tracks again, and maybe explore their other albums some more. But I don’t think I’d ever listen to this one all the way through again.
