Your post-GMYSP favourite KD albums!
« on: September 06, 2007, 07:44:44 AM »
I know that this has been done before, but I am interested to see peoples choices now that we have had time to digest the new album.

You should vote on all 12 studio albums. Also, list the year that you started listening to King Diamond and the first two albums you ever heard, so that we can see if peoples taste is in any way influenced by the time and circumstances of their....enlightenment. :P

I started listening in 1990. First albums: Abigail & The Eye.

"Them"
Conspiracy
Abigail
Give me your soul...please
The Puppet Master
The Eye
Voodoo
Fatal Portrait
Abigail 2: The Revenge
The Graveyard
The Spider's Lullabye
House of God

I started to listen KD 7 years ago with House Of God! It was love at first sight! In true love there is no wrong or right! :D
Then I bought 'em all in this order:
"Them"
Abigail
Melissa
Conspiracy
The Eye
In Concert Abigail
Fatal Portrait
Don't Break The Oath
The graveyard
The Spider's Lullabye and Voodoo the same time
Into The Unknown and 9 the same time
The Bell Witch
Time
In The Shadows
Dead Again
The Beginning
Return Of The Vampire
And of course Abigail 2, The Puppet Master, Deadly Lullabyes And Give Me Your Soul... Please!
But again sorry, I still can't decide which one is my favourite!

I started listening to king 4 years ago. I started with The Graveyard


I'd say Give Me Your Soul... Please definitely steals #1 for me. I have ultra respect for stories that come out of the blue with a solution that I wasn't expecting.
Other than that, it's hard to rank the albums, Every album that I love I love for different reasons. Each album has something that the other one's don't. but I'll try anyway

GMYSP
The Graveyard
The Puppet Master
The Eye
Conspiracy
Abigail
Them
House Of God
Voodoo


if more bands could be that

started listening to King/MF in spring of '94. The Eye is my favorite and I really can't rank the rest....I like them all pretty much equally.
Lady, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave the store....

Ya I more or less started then also, but not until recently I started get all the KD cd's. I still have 3 to get, but so far my list is:

Voodoo :king:
The Spider's Lullabye  :king:
Abigail  \m/
Give me your soul please  \m/
Conspiracy  :fingers:
The Puppet Master  :D
The Eye  :)
House of God  :cool:
Abigail II  ::)

Still have to get:
Them ( just ordered)
The Graveyard
Fatal Portrait

I don't know if I will get the live albums or those ep/compilation albums before I start checking out Mercyful Fate cd's. Not a huge fan or live recordings.

I'd probably have to rate the albums like so:
"THEM"
Conspiracy
Abigail
Fatal Portrait
House of God
Voodoo
GMYSP
The Graveyard
Spider's Lullabye
Abigail II
The Puppetmaster
I can't rate The Eye because I still haven't gotten to hear it  :'(

First saw a picture and article on KING around 1981, became a fan and saw the video for THE FAMILY GHOST (MY FAVORITE SONG BY KING) when it came out in 1987. First album bought was THEM when it came out (I couldn't find ABIGAIL for a few years in my area).  Favorite list goes like this

GIVE ME YOUR SOUL...PLEASE ( SO GOOD I BOUGHT A SECOND COPY FOR FEAR I WOULD WEAR IT OUT)
THEM
HOUSE OF GOD( THIS ONE FIGHTS FOR 2ND PLACE DUE TO THE SUBJECT MATTER, I PLACED THEM AT 2 FOR SENTIMENTAL REASONS.)
EYE OF THE WITCH
ABIGAIL
THE SPIDERS LULABYE
VOODOO
CONSPIRACY
ABIGAIL 2
FATAL PORTRAIT
THE GRAVE YARD
THE PUPPET MASTER

In acuality , after the first 2 I can't really say the list is rock solid, it depends on my mood for which story. I didn't list the live album for they are in a world of their own. OH and as for Mercyful Fate everyone knows by now my favorite is 9.


I CAN'T GO TO HELL...SATAN STILL HAS THAT RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST ME.
