The Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction is a place where the aches and pains of banality can be relieved. Vices, insecurities, stupidities cured. A little bit like Disney world but with lipstick, cynicism and wit. (Chris Corner, Postwave.gr) The Sneaker Pimp's Chris Corner hit North American shores last year when Metropolis released his first two efforts under the name IAMX. Kiss + Swallow and The Alternative garnered a lot of media attention, while he recruited new fans on his near capacity tour dates. Ready to continue with the invasion he began, IAMX is poised to release his third album, Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction, onto the eagerly awaiting masses. The album builds upon his previous releases with his ideologies and sociological confrontationalism. He deconstructs not only society's whims and downfalls, but his own as well. I love you, I hate you, me, myself, and Mr X coming from the opening track makes the listener uneasy and attentive to what he has to say. The 11 track album is a monument to behold as it welcomes you to the Kingdom Of Welcome Addition.
