Good album by an underrated band. Very raw and felt almost pop punk before we had pop punk. Serpentine was a great cut, the rest is average for this band, but good none the less.

From: macD Date: June 8, 2002 at 10:26
Fantastic uptempo cock rock. Black LEather & Serpentine should have been massive.

From: Paulo-Fernandes Date: August 31, 2002 at 8:12
Serpentineeeeeeeeeeeeee just plainly RULES :-) Awesome guitar work throughout the album

From: Steve T Date: August 31, 2002 at 9:54
I saw them support Kiss in London and they were no great shakes.

From: AOR-MESSIAH Date: January 4, 2003 at 15:05
Does anyone have the third Kings Of The Sun CD "Resurrection" ? I'd like to trade.

From: Keith Date: January 5, 2003 at 7:50
This cd has stayed in my top 10 playlist for about 15 years. I would love to see them play in a bar. They'd rock the dump. Love every track on the album.

From: Jeff Date: January 19, 2003 at 4:20
Very underated band that never got the respect they deserve. Had decent air play in Rock Radio in Canada in late 80's/ Early 90's but unfortunately Grunge put end to kick ass guitar rock..

From: Mauricio Date: February 3, 2003 at 20:50
"Does anyone have the third Kings Of The Sun CD "Resurrection" ? I'd like to trade." I have Ressurection cd. If you still want make contact.

Does ANYONE know of a site to download the song Serpentine? I can't find it anywhere! Thanks

From: koogles Date: July 18, 2003 at 12:43
A little left-of-center hard rock. Not my cup of Tetley, but good for what it is, I suppose. These guys have a bit of Social Distortion flavor to their sound, a bit too grainy and raw for my tastes.

From: stanley b Date: November 20, 2003 at 14:16
have all three cds by this band they are the best band on the face of this earth.every song kicks ass.my rating for this band is 11 out of 10

From: stan bouts Date: November 20, 2003 at 14:28
looking for video clips by kings of the sun . does anyone have any?is there a site i could download from?

From: 80sMetal1 Date: March 16, 2004 at 14:49
This is a really good, straight-ahead anthemic hard rock cd. Black Leather is such an awesome song with a catchy chorus. Serpentine's a great song, and Vicious Delicious is an original song. Better than Full Frontal Attack, where the drummer needs to be put in a straightjacket (he is just too over-aggressive).

From: Forty Date: May 14, 2004 at 1:43
Used to see this band around Sydney alot. Playing pubs & clubs.One of the best live bands I ve seen. Had a big cult following but never got the commercial success they should have.

From: Robert Date: July 14, 2004 at 11:10
One word describes this band to a tee - WICKED! Awesome band that deserved more than they got. I wish there were more albums to collect from this band.

From: dhalgren Date: July 16, 2004 at 10:15
Serpentine is one of the classics of Australian hard rock. Pity the "Kings" never made it big. Countdown has some clips of the band, if you can find them.....

i reformed kings of the sun in 1998 with original members jeff and cliff hoad. i have all available videos and unreleased songs pcpesco@aol.com

I saw these dudes when the backed up Guns & Roses, they absolutly blew the Gunners of the stage. After they finished the crowd did'nt want the Gunners to come on and kept callin the "KINGS" back on for an oncore. Go KINGS

From: Dave Date: September 5, 2004 at 7:29
illewsu a fellow Aussie , good to see you stick up for the home grown !!!!! They were pretty good and if Black Leather {what a video clip} had ever got a fair go in those days , it would have been a hit just like another home grown "The Bombers" The Worlds On Fire, which is one of the best songs to come out of Oz !!!!!

From: Mick Date: September 7, 2004 at 1:20
I recall seeing the Kings at their fav venue, the Kardomah Cafe in Kings Cross. When, they were on fire, there was not a better live band. Come back Kings of the Sun!! The rock world needs you.

From: No Good Sinner Date: November 14, 2004 at 23:55
Jeez Clix, you'll probably make a fortune out of those unreleased songs and vids! I've seen them, folks, and they're a must for any true Kings fan. Speshly the Kiss support at Carrara where a Kiss roadie furiously remonstrates with the Kings to stop playing 'Lick It Up'. Dave, i totally agree with you about the Bombers song 'Worlds on Fire'. I drove from Melbourne to Sydney with that song on constant repeat one night and i still wasn't sick of it. Wonder what happened to the singer.

From: Blue Tequila Date: January 18, 2005 at 15:30
Looks like I'm in the minority on this one. Just couldn't get past the horrible 8th grade lyrics and production that sounded like they recorded this in a garage. Most of the tunes are catchy but something seems to be missing.

From: Geoff Date: January 27, 2005 at 4:03
Blue Tequilla, don't think you're too alone here. I'm an Aussie and love the country, but doesn't mean I wear green and gold glasses for everything I see or hear. I love BB Steal, Candy Harlots, Roxus and the like, but IMO this was as average as you get. Such ordinary hard rock - no songs I liked. Glad to see they made a name for themselves and best of luck to them, but this is pretty damn poor hard rock, IMO.

From: Easyrider Date: February 9, 2005 at 4:23
Hi Y'all Well those of you with good taste will be pleased to know the guys are still making music - under their new name - THE RICH & FAMOUS - as they should be. They have one CD out already - available on their website with another on the way - check it out: www.therichandfamous.net if you dare.....

From: zld Date: November 17, 2006 at 10:10
Typical australian no-nonsense straight forward rock like Angelcity/the angels, Rose Tattoo or Screaming jets. Nice, but nothing really special. Same goes for the second album.7/10

From: Put-Put Date: August 11, 2009 at 6:44
one of the underrated bands ever this album is not so straight rocking then the 2nd one but still very good time rock and roll
