The Kings’ seventh album release The Longest Story Ever Told is fittingly titled, as the longest running track on the album about “still rocking and rolling,” and is driven by jumpy piano chops by Sonny Keys and Peter Nunn. Lead singer David Diamond kicks off “Nowhere to Go” with a high-pitch howl for this road trip jam, while songwriter-guitarist Mister Zero brings classic shreddage. “A Rose for Your Stone” is steeped in Americana vibes with a welcome surprise accordion that lull the listener into contentment. An instant classic for the power pop believers and rock & roll fan.
