Are you really into vampires? Do you think you ARE a vampire? Then this is the album for you. The third album from Type O Negative (also known as The Drab Four) is one dark, gothic album...but it's also pretty damn funny. Peter Steel sings like he's dead...it's downright creepy. The album is loaded with lyrical gems like "Little wolf skin boots/And clove cigarettes/An erotic funeral/For witch she's dressed...Loving you is like loving the dead" from "Black No.1". They take on the once sweet and innocent Seals & Crofts hit "Summer Breeze" and turn it into a song of doomsday. These guys may be dark, but they're also entertaining.
The problem is, not every song is exceptional, and the album runs ridiculously long at 74 minutes (a later version toned it down to 9 songs and may be better: a still later version added a bonus disc. Really??). As weird and fun as this can be, it can also get excruciating. Look for the shorter version, pick out the better tunes and put them on your iPod.
This is album #116 in an ongoing series.
