I haven't heard House of God (got the reissue coming this week) or Graveyard.

1) Abigail
2) Them
3) Fatal Portrait
4) Conspiracy
5) The Spider's Lullabye
6) Voodoo
7) The Eye

I have to mention that Abigail, Them, and Fatal Portrait are interchangeable. There have been many periods where Fatal Portrait was my favorite (I so love the way the vocals were arranged on that album, the solos from Michael and Andy, the catchy songs).

Here is my top seven as of today:

1. The Eye
2. Abigail
3. Voodoo
4. The Puppet Master
5. Them
6. House of God
7. Conspiracy

Hmmm, ALMOST the same as my earlier post! Except that The Eye is back at top, which doesn't surprise me, it was the first KD album I heard.

Ok, after MANY listens these last few month, I must admit I made a pretty big mistake:

I believe that Abigail 2 is no longer the "second worst" KD album ever! In fact, it's one of King's most underrated. I would now say, that Abigail 2 is better than either GMYSP and The Graveyard, ONE of the reasons being that there's more of King's higher pitched vocals. Also, Matt is a much better drummer than Darren Anthony was on The Graveyard. In fact, ALL the musicians on Abigail 2 could smoke the guys playing on The Graveyard. The Mindstorm guys as a whole are not better than the current KD lineup, HOWEVER, those guys made Voodoo, and THAT album can stand toe to toe with The Puppet master, which says something. AND the ONLY bad thing I could say about Voodoo is John Luke Hebert drum work wasn't excellent on that album or HOG. Matt Thompson IS a better drummer AND he truly is the third best KD drummer, behind Mikkey Dee and Snowy Shaw (though Snowy didn't have much of a chance to prove himself on the Eye, as the drum pads severely limited his playing AND you could tell he was held back a bit. We all got to witness his TRUE playing on Time, AND THAT was some talent there!)

Fixed ! :)  Although I still believe 'The Graveyard' is also very underrated as well . King did some of his most intense/emotional vocal work on 'The Graveyard' IMO . :king:

Me too for a long time ....then I played the remaster recently and it is boosted as far as dynamics and clarity .  If you have it , play it and see if you notice the difference . The original is awesome but the remaster really set my stereo system ablaze ! \m/ :king:
