It says 'Least Favorite' not which ones suck.  ::) :D:

Least favorite:

Voodoo
The Spider's Lullaby
Abigail II

I know which ones are my least favorite because I always have KD albums in heavy rotation save for those three. I listen to them, but not too often.

1. The Puppet Master (except during December)
2. Abigail Live (since deadly lullabyes came out)
3. Graveyard (although about 90% of it is great)

Wow, some of you people need to listen to The Graveyard again.  It is quite possibly King's finest work.  His voicework is the best of any album IMO and the atmosphere is CREEPY.  I mean, come on!  The first 3 songs proper are "Black Hill Sanitarium", "Waiting" and "Heads on the Wall"  ALL CLASSICS!

And then he nonchalantly throws in "Sleep Tight Little Baby" and "Daddy", which are 2 of the creepiest and catchiest songs in existence.  Marvelous stuff.  Oh and "Meet Me at Midnight" has a killer riff as does "Trick or Treat".  And King goes absolutely nuts at the end of the excellent "I Am".  And another completely killer riff surfaces in "Lucy Forever"

The Graveyard is an all-time classic.

Least Favorite. I take that as the 3 I listen to the least often which would be
Abigail 2
The Grave Yard
The Puppet Master

However When I do grab one of these 3 off the shelf, I remember why they are better than most of the shit by other bands out there....They really are good albums in their own right.

Damn! My least fav. albums as well. I thouht I'd be the only one. I just dont understand when people mention Voodoo as one of their least favorites.

House of God is one of the best KD albums!

Can't believe how many said HOG... it's my all time favorite! MASTERPIECE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Abigail II as well- awesome album, so very underrated it's not even funny.

my least favorites would be: The Eye & The Graveyard. Both are good, but not up to the level of the rest of them imo.

The only albums I didn't care for were
1.) Abigail live
2.) Voodoo

I can't believe a good portion of you guys dislike Puppet Master. I love that album. To each his own I guess.

1: Abigail II
2: Conspiracy
3: The Puppet Master

I can`t understand that somebody ranks Voodoo low either. I think it is possibly the best album together with Abigail. Truely a
masterpiece in my eyes. It is so unik compared to all the other albums, yet it keeps the kingfeeling I love. But that was of topic.

this is purely based on which ones I listen to the least, not which I like the least:

abigail live
the spider's lullabye
the graveyard

since deadly lullabyes live came out, I don't think I've listened to abigail live even once.

I have to say the new one for all 3.  This is the first time in all of these years that I did not like a new King Diamond CD.  We were all a little dissappionted to say the least.

1. Conspiracy
2. Abigail II
3. Voodoo

I don't know why people have "House of God" in this list. Personally, I love that album. I guess it's just individual tastes.

1. House Of God
2. & 3. ..uummm... don't really know, love the others so much.

But I'm still missing Spider's Lullabye, The Graveyard and Abigail II, which seem to be quite unpopular albums. House Of God has a bit weaker overall feeling, though some tracks (title song, Catacomb, This Place Is Terrible) are a few of KD's best. Strange, this computer got real stucky now while I'm writing this message. I guess it finds it so blasphemous to say something bad about King's music..

But it is funny how tastes differ, 'cause in my opinion the new one is like equally good as Abigail - which is VERY much to be said, Abigail is such a divine piece of art. The new one really blew my mind.

Try hard to get the "Graveyard" and "Spiders Lullaby".  Order them if you have to.  Those are two of his very best!

I'm still in the process in getting all his cd's. I'm buying 1 a week. So far I have 5. To be honest, I think so far the Spider's Lullabye even though I don't like the mixing and production, I like it the best so far. The Puppet Master is terrific too and like it more every day. I just got the House of God and I'm blown away by it. I just got that today.
The Eye has it's moments but at times it can be just medicore. I was a little let down on it...and the story in it isn't that interesting to me.. The opening track is one of his best though. Conspiracy is a pretty good album. That was the first cd I bought a couple years ago from him.Not that impressed with his new album Give me your Soul...Please. A couple songs in the beginning is good but the rest of the album is produced well but is very lazy in the songwritting and just bores me. I guess I need some more listens.

Next on order for me is Abigail. I can't wait to get that.

The Graveyard and Abigail II, are clearly my two least liked ... after that it's hard to pick.  I guess I'd go with The Fatal Portrait, because in all honesty I know that disc least of all, and have never really been drawn in to it.

Every king diamond story is unique, but my least favourites are.. hmm this is hard. well maybe

1 fatal portrait because it has no storyline but the songs are good no doubt that.
2. Spiders lullaby. couple killer songs. not full concept but still good
3. there aint no other ''weaker'' cd so i have to put Abigail II here.

Its hard to to say something bad about king diamond / mercyfull fate albums because they all so unique and killer
