Book M by secret chiefs three but sure we might as well be wanking off to that bird who was out of our league but we rode anyway (this never happened to me personally but it definately has to some you travellers).

I picked up Bloody Kisses in a charity shop 5 years ago, having never listened to Type O Negative before. I remember enjoying Christian Woman and (Black no. 1?) but I was fairly unimpressed with the rest of it. I actually can't remember any other songs from the album other than Kill all the White people, which I thought was shit.

I'm surprised to see this album rated so highly. Must give it another go.

I gave the album another listen earlier, well half of it. I should have used different wording earlier, it's not that I think it's shit or unimpressive - I just don't get it.

Good riffs yes, and most excellent guitar tones, great drum and keys sounds, Steele's voice sounds unreal on one track but, then on the next is like tribal gang vocals and I just don't understand what's going on. My brain keeps trying to make a connection between christian women and kill all the white people  :laugh: There's a variety in there for sure, and maybe it will click one day but I'm in no rush to listen to it again. I will check out the second half tomorrow just for fairness sake.

It's an odd one as it stops and starts a lot. Riffs jump and change and songs veer off in a new direction with no warning. Its actually a mess in that regard.

Funny enough, people were using these exact same sentences when they were shitting all over Machine Head's - The Blackening when it came out  :laugh:

Try the digipak version Giggles, more consistent in tone.

I think that's just a playlist of the original album tracks, but you'll get the idea.

Great shouts with October Rust & The Fragile, although I'd rate The Downward Spiral above the latter.

Jaysus, even picking a top 2 is nearly impossible. Gun to my head possibly Anathema - Judgement and Paradise Lost - Draconian Times. And yet, I haven't listened to either of those albums in over 2 years easily. I completely burned them out.

At various turns I could have Dirt, Puppets, Justice, Disintegration, Ultra, Rust in Peace, any of the first few Sabbath albums..... Ah balls, sher tis impossible.

No wait, the best tracks off  the Use Your Illusion albums in one compilation. Ya, that's it.

Great call there on Anathema - Judgement..a stunning piece of work..

Judgement is indeed class. It also really hammers home how shit the last few are.

Aye, think I only listened to a few minutes of The Optimist and it seemed to be the pinnacle of that direction they were heading i.e. very bland. That being said, I enjoyed at least a coupla tracks off all the later albums but the filler was very dull.

Hvis Lyset Tar Oss


Or

Townes Van Zandt s/t


I don't think I've ever made it through a Type O song. Embarrassing stuff if someone walked in and I was caught listening that.

Yeah the albums from 2010 onwards stuck to the same template and they started to run out of road, thought The Optimist was pretty woeful. The doom era was great. But from Alternative 4 to A Natural Disaster - that's a pretty damn good run of albums.

If I had to pick one itíd be Sepultura - Schizophrenia (I wore the tape out), or possibly Arcturus- The Sham Mirrors

Also, whatís wrong with Live and Dangerous? Itís a class live album
