Thread: thoughts on the new Marcus King record?

1. I'm really enjoying it - it's a bit easier on the ears than his prior stuff

2. several of the songs themselves, and Marcus' guitar tone, sound an awfully lot like the TTB and DT.

I need to listen some more the first album grabbed my by the juju right away. This one not so much. I miss the rough guitar edge but maybe I just haven't found it yet.

Thanks I wasn't aware he had one out. Going to check it out.

I like it a lot. I know he was using Tele's more in the studio on this one. It's got a good "feel" to it. Dave Cobb is a master.

Boring, unoriginal, derivative. He sounds like a Warren wannabe.

And when he doesn’t sound like DT he sounds like Warren.

He’s definitely good but he definitely needs to get comfortable on his own skin

But, if I gave up on a young Kenny Wayne Shepherd for being derivative, I would’ve missed seeing a fantastic guitar player growing into what he is today. So, l stick around.

But yeah, he needs his own style.

I think he sounds a lot lik ehmself, especially in his singing and songwriting, which is very personal and very strong.

exactly

I don't think anyone sounds like Marcus vocally especially for his age. I do hear influences of Derek and Warren but it isn't like he's copying their chops. The MKB is another branch of the ABB that music needs right now.

I just listened to it.

He's GREAT!

Like it. Heard him with Lesh in Mobile, great.

I agree. I also can't stand his voice he makes JB of WSP actually sound like a great singer.

Just got it yesterday - listened twice today and I like it.

Heard live versions of many of the tunes and liked them. New disc is on the way.
I like him and the band
I agree with those that say he has his own sound
He borrows from others, including Derek and Warren, but who doesn't?

Looking forward to seeing him again in November

He is a monster guitar player.

The new record is good, “Goodbye Carolina” got stuck in my head so badly that I had to stop listening to it for a bit.
