I guess if your going to buy into the idea that it's an evil spirit twin then the idea of the spirit taking the form of an older version of it's self doesn't seem very far fetched

What about it makes some of you rate it so low?

The only thing about this album I would remotely rate low is the production (sound).  Those songs sound the way, I believe, they always should have on Deadly Lullabies.

For a long time I didn't care that much for Abigail II, it was just kind of a meh album for me. But lately, in the last month or so, I've been listening to it a lot more and its really growing on me, especially Broken Glass, Mansion in Sorrow, Slippery Stairs, and Miriam. I think that's what really sets King's music apart from a lot of bands, that the more you listen to it the more it really grows on you and you discover a lot of the nuances in the compositions. What else can I say; King Diamond fuckin' rocks  :king:

It's my least favorite album, but Spirit is one of the greatest King Diamond songs.

Hell yes it is, I think Abigail 2 was a very fitting and worthy sequel, i think it might have been better than the original,  i personally like the NEW KD stuff (2000s+) better than the 80s even though Conspiracy and Fatal Portrait were masterpieces IMO

I think there's something wrong with my hearing, because I can't understand why everybody is so crazy about Spirits. For me it's just another song on KD´s least great album.

Omo, Spirits is awesome live, way better than on record. I think both Spirits and Mansion in Sorrow are great live tunes.
Like, whatever.

Crap album with one absolutely fantastic song ("Spirits") and one pretty decent song ("Slippery Stairs").

It strikes me as funny that most people that LIKE this album don't mention "Spirits" as a favorite. Makes sense since "Spirits" is very atypical for the more monotonous and generic (sorry, "organic") KD sound of late that half the fanbase seems to prefer. I prefer the more progressive varied sound of the first 5 albums, and as such these two songs are more my cup of "tea".

On a side note, though, and in all fairness... This album has some of the beast lead guitars on any KD album since "Conspiracy".

The first half of the album is very good!
And the second half is even better in my opinion ;)

But i am no fan so long time. so i have not really expectations of the album.
If you listen King diamond from the begin, and every album you buy when it comes out,
you probably look the album on a different way, than that all albums were already existing, and buy som random album.

I have to say listening to this album a lot more recently and it's definitely creeping up the list  \m/

some will find it a heresy, but i actually like it more than part1 (Mike+Andy+Hal sound fantastic here)...it's up there with The Eye for (my favourite).
