In many ways, More Fun in the New World marks the end of X’s classic run of albums. It’s the last truly great X album. The last one produced by the Doors’ Ray Manzarek. And, as the band’s first true stab at commercial viability, the last record to sound uncompromised. Indeed, More Fun exists as a sort of bridge. It’s not quite as dark as the group’s first three records, nor is it as unabashedly cleaned up as what came later. X tried on a few different pop moves in the ’80s, and depending on your perspective, More Fun is either the weakest of the band’s classic records or the best of their commercial period.
