  • And being about the same age as Peter, Josh, Kenny & Johnny, I can totally appreciate the melding of the two. The love-of and influenced-by really shows up on this album, and the result is a pure winner… more “October Rust” in form and style, a bit of a departure from the funeral dirge of “World Coming Down”, a little lighter perhaps, and more musically diverse (and therefore interesting). LIKM has everything TON fans have come to expect: the cover tune (Angry Inch), the politically incorrect tune (I Like Goils), the play on words and love gone wrong tunes (How Could She, A Dish Best Served Coldly), songs of self-loathing and disenchantment (I Don’t Wanna Be Me, Life is Killing Me). Musically, TON is in top form here. As usual, Peter and Josh produced the album (can anyone imagine anyone else producing a TON album??), so it has the flavor we’ve come to expect. You know, the kind that can only be cooked up by the world’s foremost Brooklyn NYC goth metal band? The only thing missing from this album is the goof intro track… these are dear to my heart, as one of my fondest memories was the afternoon I came home to find my husband cursing the new DVD/CD player because it wouldn’t play CDs right… he’d grabbed “World Coming Down” off the TV cabinet and track 1 (Skip It) was giving him fits… I’m looking forward to seeing Type O Negative when they hit town in early August. Life is good again (even if it’s killing Peter Steel).
