Type O Negative's last album October Rust left a bit more to be
desired with alot of fans...some say it was a bit too commercial (how
Type O could really ever sound "commercial" is beyond me though).
Others (like myself) just didn't like it as much as Bloody Kisses...
but I know that if bands keep putting out the same album, it gets
boring, blah, blah...
Anyways, here it is...finally, the long awaited new Type O Negative
album...(and yes, it is better than October Rust) World Coming Down
proves that bands put out much better albums when no one from their
record company is making suggestions of how it should sound *cough*
*cough* and the band can retain all of their musical intergrity.
This album is Type O all the way...there's plenty of doom and gloom,
great vocal effects...slow downtempo songs...
lyrics about the dead, lost love, and addiction...
(the usual cheery stuff you expect from Type O Negative), and what
would this album be without the references to sex?
There seems to be less guitar on this album..overall, maybe it's just
not that loud in the mix..but the keyboards seem to be driving the
songs more this time around...
Some of the songs sound like they could've been on Bloody Kisses,
"Everyone I love is Dead", or "World Coming Down"...but overall the
album is different, it's more of a mix of their past albums, with
some new stuff thrown in here and there.
There's really only one band that could sound like Type O Negative...
and one way to descibe their sound...
(what Black Sabbath would sound like if they were playing while
slipping into a coma).
If you're heavy into Type O Negative and goth music in general, I
highly recommend a band from England called Paradise Lost, they
are a killer goth band, but get no exposure in the U.S...for some
reason...anyways, check out "Draconian Times", and "Icon".
