Four years later after “The Eye”, King & Andy with new members of the band dish out “The Spider’s Lullabye”, an a-typical Diamond album, which might be the strangest story line King has put out. Musically, it sounds very similar to many different Diamond songs. Herb Simmonsen’s guitar playing wouldn’t catch my attention until “Voodoo”, and La Rocque is brilliant as ever. Not an epic album, most of the songs, with the exception of the last four, are all self contained stories. But I always felt that “Lullabye” was a follow-up to “The Eye”. The “eye” is mentioned in “From the Other Side”, which leads me to believe all the songs are related experiences of other people, just like “The Eye”. I’m sure a lot of Diamond fans might have been disappointed, but it really isn’t that bad. Certainly not to be overlooked!
