Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Formed in 1991 from the ashes of Brooklyn-based shock-metal band Carnivore--a band that used to hurl animal entrails over their gleeful audience--this retrospective proves that even the darkest of goth metallers can develop a sense of humour. Type O Negative are to Goth metal what U2 are to epic rock--pompous ironic, and quite fond of songs a few minutes too long--and as this greatest hits and remixes collection would suggest, The Least Worst Of Type O Negative seems eager to highlight Type O's sepulchral dark sense of humour. It's there on the opening "The Misinterpretation Of Silence And Its Disastrous Consequences", which consists of 39 seconds of complete silence; it's pretty evident on the tongue-in-cheek B-movie perversions of "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend (Cheese Organ Mix)"; and it positively permeates "Hey Pete"--a horrifically butchered take on Jimi Hendrix favourite "Hey Joe" that goes "Hey Pete/ Where you going with that axe in your hand?" And elsewhere, there are pretty enjoyable covers of Black Sabbath ("Black Sabbath") and Neil Young ("Cinnamon Girl"). Although sensitive listeners should be wary of Type O's 12-minute speed-metal-cum-orgasmic-prog-anthem "Unsuccessfully Coping With The Natural Beauty Of Infidelity", which--laugh-wise--might just outstay its welcome. --Louis Pattison.

Only Type O Negative could release a compilation of songs that wasn't the best of, but the Least Worst of. This puts you in the frame of mind that dark humour and sarcasm is what the ever looming Pete Steele and his Merry Men are all about. The clinky tune of Black #1 and the cute harpsicord had to be a must on this collection, as well as the bouncy 'Girlfriends' tune, but the album is also backed up with the gloomy cover of Black Sabbaths 'Black Sabbath', showing the roots of TON. A larger number of the tracks do sway towards the deeper side of their recordings, missing the highly amusing and meaningful wails of Pyreta Blaze from the previous album, so if you're looking for a nice relaxing medial state then you're off on the right foot so far. Oddly enough, through the darkness of the sounds and lyrics, this album has a feel good factor and can really get you in the mood for a good night of illustrious moshing.

Over the years many bands have attempted to do a 'best of' album... but Type O have come up with the best title Least Worst Of. You can get the sarcasm. I own all of the band's albums and I am going to avoid any sense of bias.

One of the things that have shaped TON's reputation, is front man Peter Steele's wit. So the first track makes that perfectly clear. Actually most of the album contains various radio edits of songs and all of the best-loved songs are here. From the grim and emotive sense of loss 'Everything Dies' and 'Everyone I Love Is Dead' to the ambient sarcasm of 'Christian Woman' and 'Black No. 1'. Some are remixed such as the 'Cinnamon Girl' track, which is quite refreshing.

But what I loved more about this particular offering, was the unreleased material, from the insane take on Hey Joe, using the lyrics of a man seeking revenge on his girlfriend. 'Black Sabbath (from the Satanic Prospective)' is basically the same song as the famous cover version that TON recorded for the NIB Black Sabbath tribute album. But Pete uses his songwriting genius to do the song from Satan's viewpoint.

The material from the World Coming Down sessions could have easily fitted on the album itself. All three are gloomy in their own way. The last one calls upon the band's environment of Brooklyn capturing some personal element to the lyrics. Its also worth noting that two of the songs also call upon the contribution of Paul Bento through cat-scratch solos and sitar usage. And just to add the finishing touch, the keyboard note from the end of the infamous Origin Of The Feces is used to round it off.

If you're a Type O fan, you should own this, because its Type O and is their best of (not being compared to the 'Best Of' album released in 2006). If you've never come across this band, this album is a step to understanding the band's material right up to World Coming Down era. Worth the fun!

You know those days when you just want to be left alone to feel miserable and enjoy feeling sorry for yourself? Well, this is the perfect soundtrack to one of those days! Nice and dark, quality gothmetal with a touch a humour (I know that can be hard to imagine!) Standout tracks are the Neil Young cover Cinnamon Girl and the gloomy Stay Out Of My Dreams, but the mess of Hey Joe lets it down . Play this on a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon and take pride in being a miserable git !!!

What makes TON such a great band, is that you can see these guys when it comes to recording a album rather than decide what direction they want there tracks to go in they just mess about and see what happens.
The result of this is one of the best goth-rock albums made, athough there are some let downs on the album (as with most albums) one track stands miles above the rest and in my opinion is highly underrated and one of the greatest and most accomplished songs ever, of cause i'm talking about 'Everything dies'. The track blows me away everytime i play it, it's the most dark and twisted song ever. So much i'm going to ask for someone to play it for my funeral.
Cinnamongirl is also a great much more fast pased track which really gets you recovered as it's the track straigh after everything dies.
