Rating: 9 Weird story, I don't know if I like it or not. I do love the album though.

Rating: 8 Interesting album, with a lot of variety and even some spooky balladry ('Christmas' and 'So Sad'). The only thing i can say negatively here is that King Diamond's vocals prove a little weak, but that's probably an 'age' thing.

  Hmm... this album has some decent moments, but overall, it's not really a patch on say, "Abigail" or "Them".

Rating: 9 I now rate this above Abigail, which can get too chuggy, sometimes. It's on par with Them and Conspiracy, which I also rate as perfect albums

Rating: 9 Undoubtedly his best work since "The Eye", this album blows his post Eye albums out of the water with songwriting and atmosphere. I'd put this in the category of his most under rated work along with Mercyful Fate's Time album.

I share the same regard but it's currently rated at an 8.5 which is pretty darn good.

Oh, I agree with the rating, I just wanted to make sure this album got more of the ass kissing it deserves, always felt it to be a bit under rated, mostly when people say KD never really did anything worthwhile after The Eye- I point to this album, and even House of God as well.

The reason people refer to 'The Eye" as the last album worth having is because well.........it is. He has milked the same album to many times and its boring as shit. When bands take those long hiatuses and 7-8 years later they come back energized sounding fresh again(Exodus:Tempo of the Damned,Immortal:All Shall Fall example). That is a good thing because you can only do so much without just changing the lyrics and playing the same music from the Fatal Portrait, Abigail and Conspiracy era. If you are dropping albums year after year then It just becomes a formula. If King Diamond isn't going to bother with trying different approaches outside of that formula then what you get is an uninspired band playing basically the same thing with each time not as good as before. People get that heard it all before feeling. Newer fans didn't get to hear Abigail when it was fresh out of womb. Those of us that did hear the slope down that began with "Conspiracy" more times than not stopped with "The Eye".
