  • I seriously cannot understand the one star reviews (Especially if you’re a “fan”)!! First: there’s about a 15 year gap between Abigial I & II – how could they possibly sound the same?! Second: why would you want them to? That would be repetitve and boring. Maybe the real reason for some of the low (and hostile) reviews of this cd is because it reminds them of a time when they were young. A time they can never return to and ultimately a reminder/realization that they can’t live they way they did as a reckless youth and have become bitter and cynical…but why take it out on poor King?! Saying Abigail II is not as “good” as the first Abigail is like being angry that Iron Maiden hasn’t written another “Run to the Hills” or AC/DC not recording another “Back in Black” album… Abigail II is a present to his fans and as a fan I appreciate the gesture. I realize that not everyone is going to like A2 but I don’t think it should be given a one star – especially by a fan!
    Now that I got that out of my system…
    What makes Abigail II so enjoyable (for me, anyways) is the detail of the story is more intricate than the original. And the music was much more sinister this time, helping to create great visual effects in one’s mind. There are plenty of great themes and melodies throughout the entire cd. A previous reviewer stated the contrary but maybe he wasn’t paying enough attention. The songs do take a few listenings to really grow on you (pretty much like most of his work) but the reward is there for those willing to keep an open mind.
    King really put a lot of thought and effort into this project and I’m very pleased with the results. I recommend this release to any and all King Diamond fans. Definately an album you shouldn’t be without!
