  • Summary: The third album for the Pennsylvania hard rock band was produced by Alex Newport.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 18 out of 20
  2. Negative: 0 out of 20
  1. In the past two years, Pissed Jeans has stewed in its own formidable digestive juices, and the result is a bold leap forward into hip-deep sludge.
  2. King of Jeans successfully consolidates these two strengths, harnessing the earlier record's sometimes directionless fire-extinguisher splatter into shake-appealing rock action, and cohering Korvette's ramblings into a more complete picture of wage-slave misanthropy and alpha-male inadequacy.
  3. The sloppy rockers sound frozen in grunge time on their third release, and it works incredibly well for the dipso punks.
  4. Simply put and strongly stated, King of Jeans goes beyond charting Pissed Jeans’ position as the Deans of Denim--it places them front and center as one of the best and most ferocious guitar bands out there.
  5. This isn’t a pop record--despite the humor, it’s still bleak, intense, and uncompromising.
  6. It is this contrast between the mundanity of the everyday life, personal vanities and dissatisfactions of a bunch of self-styled "young adults" and the terrific roar and hyperbole of their dirty, dark riff-laden music that provides the neat twist in Pissed Jeans' tail and gives this album its extra frisson.
  7. Pissed Jeans's jokes aren't yet falling flat, and their balls-to-the-wall throttle has hardly been tamed, but King of Jeans sees the band for the first time failing to avoid passages of power-chord monotony and instances of off-target ridicule.
