Yes,THEM is a true masterpiece.But i always prefered Abigail,cause the whole mood is soooooo unique and the sound is way better than on THEM.And what counts most:King never released so many classix on one album again!

I'd say it's not the best, but one of the best. The best and the worst albums are easy for me to say, but putting the rest of them in order, is one of the most difficult things to do. >:D

Them is a awesome album a true blend of vocal and musical performance based upon a original theme. As far as Kings best album well that leads to alot of speculation and debate depending on how a person views the album.   If i had to rate Them against all of Kings great  works will go to say not my personal favorite but ranks fairly high due to the unique songs such as Them Bye bye missy and twilight symphony which i found quite enjoyable for various reasons.  Dont get me wrong like all the songs in some form but in a way the album didnt capture the same magic as Abigail in my opinion.  But hell i mean if anyone thinks Them is Kings best album who am i to say they are wrong.

I find Conspiracy slightly better. The guitar solos are neverending and the songs flow with great passion. Storywise, "Them" is better. But musically, Conspiracy is probalby the band's finest...
Resistance is inadvisable...

Exactly, Conspiracy is better with the guitar solos, like in A Visit From the Dead or Sleepless Night, but the lyrics on "Them" are better... Whatever, 2 great albums!

I like THEM best, with Abigail only slightly behind it.

In my opinion, The Puppet Master should have been subtitled "A Very Special King Diamond Christmas." It is great, but in the same way that "It's A Wonderful Life" is a great movie or "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is a great TV program. I can only appreciate TPM in December.

Abigail is the best album of all time IMO. My second favorite King Diamond album is probably Them, or maybe Puppet Master.

I can´t choose between Abigail and "Them" to be the best King Diamond Album for all time...but those two albums are my favourite ones!  :king:

But this must be the first time that I've seen someone say that a King Diamond album is 'Speed Metal'!

Gonna have to agree here. :gah:

I am not surprised that no one has mentioned his latest release as being a favorite.  It seems like no one I have talked to anywhere at all likes his most recent CD. GMYSP

I love GMYSP.  I think the music is quite exceptional.  However, when you pop it in after listening to PM or an 80's remaster, the production does sound a little muddy or muffled.  As a musician, the music is my number one focus, and GMYSP is very good in that department.  The story is good too, but in my mind doesn't stand up to most of the others.  Not too much really happens in this story.  It's mainly a revelation of past events, with no hooks or twists like PM, Them, or Abby.

I seem to remember that GMYSP got glowing reviews and enthusiastic raves from 99.999999999% of coven members, and I was one of them.

GMYSP is one of my favorites. I'm not sure where exactly I would place it though.

I love Give Me Your Soul...Please as well. I think it's a fantastic stand up album but not in the same league with stuff like Abigail or the Puppet Master

Beelzebub lost his time to make it, i have often considered to learn how to use Photoshop just to be able to countiniue the enquier ;P

As for Give Me Your Soul... Please i simply love it! ALOT!!!! but it can just get boring much faster than many other albums, yet i like it better than albums like HOG or Spiders Lullabye. I can understand why King was so proud before it was released cause it really is great
