It's not one of my favourites, but it's a good record, a great line up and have really nice songs, such as Angel of Light, Witches dance, among others. The tittle track is great too. If you are beginning to listen to Mercyful Fate, look for the 80's records.

Amazing album from an amazing band. The Mad Arab, Time, The Afterlife, Witches' Dance and one of my all time favourite songs Lady in Black are the highlights of this album.

HASH(0x9279c018) out of 5 stars The best Mercyful Fate album 24 Jun. 2006
By Doom Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of all, let me say that I am a stone cold Mercyful Fate/King Diamond fan and this is the album that started it all for me. Unlike one reviewer who states that only the metal classics (even as an old head I think that "classics" are often subjective) deserve five stars, I'll give five to any album which has SERIOUSLY moved me. I'm not saying that there aren't "classic" albums but please, think for yourself.

Now lets rewind to me at the age of 14. I bought this album and was ,for lack of better words, "TOTALLY FREAKED OUT!!" Now it's true, I was 14, but this album still has a similiar impact on me. Now I was SO scared by the absolutely haunting guitar melodies, the excellent lyrics and King's voice (which is NEVER off even for a second on this album in my opinion unlike some others) that I sold it back to a store. I had heard Metallica, Pantera, etc., at that time but just didn't know how to react to this.

A couple months later however, I still had the songs in my head every day and realized that I LOVED the album even though, and actually because, it terrified me, and I bought it once again.

From then on I became a Mercyful Fate and King Diamond FREAK and now own everything King has ever released except his VERY rare releases with THE BRATS. Now I know that this is heresay to any metal head who says that only the CLASSICS deserve five stars, but I think this album beats Don't Break the Oath (heads' gasp) In the Shadows, Melissa, hell, I like this better than all of King Diamond's solo releases as well.

If you wonder why ask yourself this question: HAS ANY ALBUM EVER ACTUALLY SCARED YOU? I love the heaviest music, Cannibal Corpse, Pig Destroyer, Behemoth, Immolation, etc. All that stuff is much heavier, and yes, much of it has gory lyrics, but none of it is actually HAUNTING. We are talking chills down you spine and psychological horror more than gore type metal. If it hadn't been for this album I never would have become fascinated by the occult,withchcraft, horror movies, just about everything DARK I am into now.

The opener "Nightmare By Thy Name" has a chorus that sounds to me like it was performed by satanic priests in a dark basement. "Angel of Light" peaks at the point where King proclaims "I will make a second deal with the prince of the light..." and as I listen to it right now this still strikes me as what should be the theme song for the late Anton Lavey's Church of Satan. "Witches Dance" is possibly my favorite song on the album, the first 30 seconds or so complete with the bells "of doom" still makes the hair stick up on the back of my neck. "The Mad Arab" led to my reading the Necronomicon and then all of H.P. Lovecraft's work who is now my all-time favorite horror author. "My Demon" is simply sinister: at this point King is drawing the listener deep into the abyss of his beautifully demented mind. "Time" as one other reviewer rightly said, is simply magnificiently creepy. "Lady in Black" is perhaps the most EVOCATIVE song on the album, really makes the listener feel that he is in a gothic garden on a misty day witnessing a dark apparition. "Mirror" is a very heavy song too. All in all, the album just mesmerizes me still and has led to me seeking out creepy music from all genres, bands like The Goblins, Comus, Van Der Graaf Generator's Pawn Hearts and, of course, the great Celtic Frost.

But most of all, for all those heads who can't handle King's vocals, (even I admit that at RARE times they bug me) for whatever reason I really think they are right on the money here and so you might want to give it a listen.

They say there is a thin line between madness and genius, well KING is probably a genius and DEFINATELY a madman and has a vision all his own. Plain and simple, this is the album which led me towards the darkside in all things, and never shall I return...

HASH(0x91599750) out of 5 stars ALL FATE WORTH OWNING 23 Dec. 2004
By Sealed Fate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
i personally prefer mercyful fate over any of king diamonds solo material.not that his solo stuff is bad,far from it,i just feel that the fate stuff is "darker" and a bit heavier.i am also not a huge fan of the "concept" album,which most of king's albums are...

anyway,the cd in question is incredible.very catchy,heavy everything you would expect from mercyful fate.in order of preference,i feel that this album is just behind the first two classics and IN THE SHADOWS.this album is full of inspired songwriting and playing.well worth your TIME(sorry for the pun...)

HASH(0x91d43b94) out of 5 stars "Why do I feel like I've been left behind?" 22 Dec. 2000
By Huntsmæñus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the reunion of Mercyful Fate in '93, it seems the boys had so much fun back together, another album was therefore released. "Time" is a pleasant surprise. it's very basic in its approach. It's not meant to be a "Don't Break the Oath"-type release, but just a simple heavy metal album that get's its point out with trying to impress us. D'Angelo does a nice job of filling in for Timi Hansen. But the biggest surprise is Snowy Shaw. After rumored to not have actually played the drums the King Diamond album, "The Eye", and missed the studio session for Fate's "In the Shadows", fans finally get to hear Shaw perform. And the drums do shine! And this is the only Diamond/Fate album he's on(except for the Mercyful Fate mini-Live disc, "The Bell Witch"). Shermann and Denner are brilliant as ever, and king, well, he's the King! Songs such as "Nightmare Be Thy Name", "Angel of Light", "Witch's Dance", "Time", and "Mirror" really stand out. A nice basic metal for old school headbangers.

HASH(0x9107e3d8) out of 5 stars Listenable and satisfying. 9 Oct. 2000
By sauerkraut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Time is a pretty good album from Mercyful Fate. The musical direction of the disc is hard rock with a gothic atmosphere. There's a total of eleven tracks, and I find all of them to be listenable and energetic. The musicianship is proficient, and the songwriting and production are good. King Diamond does a cool job with the vocal duties. He is a distinctive, dramatic, and versatile vocalist. The guitar playing is tight, and there are some nice riffs and solos throughout. The songs that I like the most are "Nightmare Be Thy Name," "Angel of Light," and "Witches' Dance." "Nightmare Be Thy Name" sports a cool guitar riff. The CD booklet contains individual photos of the bandmembers and the lyrics to the songs, too. Time is an album from Mercyful Fate that I don't mind listening to. Worth a listen.
