"Ogre Tones" is the eleventh full-length studio album from hard rock/progressive rock band King's X. It was released in 2005, and is their first record for InsideOut, which is a label that is devoted to progressive music (other InsideOut artists include Ayreon, James LaBrie and Riverside).

Reception[edit]

Greg Prato of Allmusic gave the record 3.5 stars of 5, saying that "While there are a few catchy tunes — especially the album opener, 'Alone' — for the most part, riffs 'n' ranting play a prominent role here." He also said that "not all of the lyrics hit the mark", citing a line from the song "Bebop" which apparently quotes "Tutti Frutti", by legendary rock singer Little Richard.
