I don't understand what people dose not like in this album.
I always thought it is great!!!!!!!! When it was released i was listening to it every day for a long time. And it was one of my favorite. I still think about it like a great album. I like it very, very much. As for the story(maybe because i am not native english or american speaking) i (for a long time )couln' t understand why abigail was a mother to herself, and onlt hereon on forums i think i understand it now :fingers:
The album is beautiful. And it also has one of the most sinister intro i think. But my favorite intro now is THE DEAD \m/ And Give me your soul is one of my favorite albums ever :D

I suspect the reason that some folks don't care for Abigail II is that it doesn't have the same overall sound as the original Abigail does. that, and maybe a lot of Mikkey Dee fans would have preferred to see him on the album. I'm only guessing though. I think the album is great....I remember how I was really impressed with the 'family tree' part of the insert and how it showed the familial connections between the various characters.

I am surprised by this!  I always heard people say great things about Abigail two.  Now the new CD by King GMYSP
I know is not a very good one judging by the comments I have heard so far.  At the college station where I play metal me and my co-host always play a ton of King and MF.  But with the new CD people are calling up asking for us to play the older stuff and not any of the new stuff at all.  Which has never happened before!

Having been a huge King fan since the early Mercyful Fate days and buying each and every new King release since Don't break the oath, I can honestly say that I do not feel that it was necessary to continue the Abigail storyline. The original masterpiece should have been left alone. I am sure that many hours of thought and storyline were worked on by King, but I rather have the original Abigail story left back in 1987.  :king:

Give it time. SOme of King's newer music is way ahead of it's time.
In ten years your tastes may change enough to appreciate these albums.
I dont bitch about King's new music if I don't get it right away. I put it down for awhile and give it another listen in a couple years.
But Ive been a King fan for twenty years so my experience tells me that eventually I will like every album. It took me 19 years before I could appreciate abigail 1. relax!

Despite some discontinuity, it stands up on its' own very well. Terribly overlooked. There are some more than decent songs and themes executed here. Another top notch product of the 21st Century...

The production isn't to my fancy, but other than that it's truly great.

I like it. It's not as good as the original, but that's a pretty high bar to set anyway. He's had worse albums in my opinion.

I've only listened to the 30 second samples on Itunes, but it sounds good to me.

I think that there is a big difference in tastes though between the people who started as early KD/MF fans and people like me who caught on later. GMYSP was the first King Diamond album I ever listened to and I love it. I am also really enjoying The Puppet Master which I just bought. Conversely, I am not so big on The Eye or Them (although The Eye is growing on me). I think that King Diamond has improved everything about his music over time and as such I am thinking that I will enjoy Abigail II.

I love Abigail II
I love every single song from that album(Even Mommy!!)... Everyone ever said to me it was not a good album, then I decided to listen myself. When the intro started, I thinked it was cool... Then when started 'The Storm', I was like "Holly shit, that is amazing!!!"

The way King sings "Would it be romantic dinner, or slaughter of a lamb?" Is fatastic!!  :king:

I love this cd! I think it has some Killer riffs. I love Slippery Stairs. I mean I like all of this cd but on this song its awsome how it sounds like the notes are almost out of time,I do not know if im saying that right but its this off beat sound like the guitar and drums are almost off but their not,LOVE IT. GREAT CD I FEEL. One more thing. Anyone know if Andy was playing his Caparison Horus on this here cd?
