  • Because of negative reviews on this record, I was hesitant to buy it. Finally, I decided to take a chance. Being unable to find it locally, I took a trip to F.Y.E. One of those ‘you name it, we got it’ places. (…) Granted, this is not King Diamond’s best. It is not exactly “Them,” “Abigail,” “Conspiracy,” or even “In The Shadows.” But let’s be fair about this. No matter how good any artist is, not every single record they make can be their best. There are elements that make this record worth listening to. It has Andy’s great guitar techniques as well as King Diamond’s creepy harpsichord techniques. The lyrics are fairly intense, and the record flows well. Granted, King Diamond has written better stories than Harry’s fear of spiders. But one thing that is not missing (even in this weaker story) is King Diamond’s captivating technique of showing his characters losing their sanity. (…)If you are a King Diamond fan, you will not want to miss this record. Alright, maybe you only want King Diamond’s best. (Well, they are ‘Abigail,’ ‘Them,’ ‘Conspiracy,’ and ‘In the Shadows.’) But I suggest that if you are hesitant to spend the money, that you at least borrow this record and test it, rather than ignore it. This is truly an underrated record that you will miss out on if you are moved by the negative reviews. (…)
