X - Advice Please
May 06, 2017, 02:40
Watched X: The Unheard Music doc tonight about the 70s/80s punk band and would like some advice about which albums to start with.

All help appreciated

Any of the first 3 , X, Wild Gift & Under The Big Black Sun after that More Fun is a dip in quality and Aint Love Grand is their attempt at the mainstream , I really like it but I'm easily impressed by shiny glittery things . After that I don't know but given a choice of any of the above I'd go for the self titled debut

which of course isn't self titled it's Los Angeles, just given it a burst, absolutely cracking listen

Produced by and featuring Ray Manzarek I think.

Would confirm the 1st 3 lps would be the starting point.

Have heard some later stuff that sounded a bit like Jefferson Airplane.
