I don't know, it changes from time to time...

2 years ago abigail would be on the top, last year maybe Them, now I'm listening more to TPM, voodoo and The Eye..

every month my favourite album changes, so i can't rank the albuns \m/

 1. Fatal Portrait
 2. The Puppet Master
 3. Voodoo
 4. The Eye
-- --------------------------------these first 4 favorite albums are so good none of the other's can touch em'.
 5. Abigail
 6. Conspiracy
 7. Them
----------------------------------these 3 albums are classic King but still nowhere near the above 4 albums in my opinion
 8. House Of God
 9. The Graveyard
10.Give Me Your Soul Please
11.The Spider's Lulaby
12. Abigail 2

I really don't like these 5 albums to be honest except for a few tracks here and there,I suppose I could make up an album of 8 songs from these 5 albums.

Them is a great album,but to me The Puppet Master is so much better but we all have different opinions,I can see why you prefer Them to The Puppet Master,but as far as the subject matter I don't think singing about puppets is much different than singing about grandma and a cup of tea ha!

King's stoires are insane,he is the ONLY metal artist that can pull off singing about these kinds of things and he makes it look twisted and insane while if somebody else tired to do it,it would be cheesey.

In my opinion The Puppet Master towers over "Them" in quality but again I do see why you prefer "Them",both great albums.

You know what, with that said, I think your 100% right. King can make stories that are insane and twisted. And the PM is just that. I'm gonna give PM another go its been years since I did, and I'll have you're opinions in mind. There is alot of opinions on here that say the PM is the best, I've been wrong once. We're cool yeah?

Hey DirtbikeDave917,yes of course we are cool my friend,just having some good converstions in here right? Them is still a great album,I didn't mean to make out The Puppet Master that far ahead of "Them" as they are both great albums.

 Its only my opinion that The Puppet Master is better,but I do think "Them" is a great album too,thats why I can see why you prefer it better. If we all had the same opinions it wouldn't be much intersting I guess ya know? Not trying to change your mind of course,but do listen to The Puppet Master,its ok to still have the opinion that "Them" is much better than The puppet master but its an album for all King Diamond fans to enjoy.

Hard... really hard...

Abigail (simply a masterpiece, front to end)
The Puppet Master (also a masterpiece, great story, great music)
House of God (I simply love it... can't help it)
The Eye (songs like the trial \m/ awesome)
The Graveyard (first cd i remember singing along, i was 5 :D)
Abigail 2 (I don't understand why it's on the bottom with most, i love it)
The Spider's Lullabye (too bad only last few songs is a story, but the story surely is great! this cd has KD's most crap number on it though)
Conspiracy (don't listen to it that often, but great cd)
Voodoo (same as with conspiracy)
Them (same as with conspiracy-voodoo)
Fatal Portrait (simply because I barely listen to it, it's a great cd though)
Give Me Your Soul... please (music is great, lyrics ruin it for me, too simple)

Slight changes...
1. abigail
2. puppet master
3. voodoo
4. HOG
5. the eye

rest about the same

^ Seems like you're very into Voodoo at the moment. It's fascinating album yet it's among my least favourite KD albums nowadays. The atmosphere and the story are creepy and cool.

It's amazing how much KD fans don't like Voodoo as much as others, esp. when they rank Abigail 2 above it. I think it's the second best KD album, after Abigail. I believe it has part to do with the speed of the album, it's the most thrasy KD album, and that may turn some listeners off.

Indeed, it is a bit trashy, that's what I like so much about KD, every album has a different genre and is never the same :)

1. Abigail-I love the rest of the discography but it's going to be hard for King to ever beat this one
2. The Graveyard-King's best story by far and probably the creepiest atmosphere any of his albums have had
3. Conspiracy-For the longest time I had this ranked below Them but recently I've grown to love this more than it predecessor. And At The Graves is arguably Kings best track recorded  :king:
4. Them-Classic for sure
5. The Spiders Lullaby-I imagine if King had expanded on the story of poor Harry that this album might have given Abigail a run for its money.  But the final 4 tracks are pure gold, and From the Other Side is another classic track
6. The Puppet Master-I just recently was able to acquire this album and listen to it for the first time, and while it is very solid, I'm still undecided if it is the classic that many hail it to be.  But I must say, it is nice to see some many emotions put into it by King & Livia's performances
7. Voodoo-My first venture into King's 90's material.  Unfortunately this album is very hit and miss, but that tracks that do hit, hit very HARD. LOA House, Life After Death, and One Down, Two to Go are pure musical gold
8. The Eye-Another album I've recently gotten around to purchasing. I've been in love with the opening track for some time and was very impressed with the rest of the album so I can expect this rise up the list in the near future.
9. Fatal Portrait-Something about this album has just never clicked for me to rank it very high.  Granted, I do love The Candle, Lurking in the Dark, and Haunted is one King's creepiest tracks
10. House of God-A very solid album, but the story gets very slow in the middle. The opening and closing of the album are excellent with The Trees Have Eyes and Catacomb
11.Give Me Your Soul...Please-While I do enjoy this album, it just doesn't contain very memorable songs and the story is kind of bland.  After seeing King being haunted by Them, a little ghost girl just doesn't seem that frightening. I do love the opening track though(The Dead), it is awesome to hear Livia sing along with the creepy organ.
12.Abigail II-This album....I honestly just can't enjoy it.  It might be because I love the original and just cannot understand the drastic change in the story(How the hell does Jonathon suddenly become the antagonist?)I've tried very hard to let this album grow on me, but it just hasn't happened yet.
