    Agreed. October Rust close second.

    Gong to see to All Hallows Eve in two weeks for a TON tribute.

    Okay.

    I know that y'all and most everyone else choose World Coming Down as yer #1 Album. But that has never been my #1 for Type O Negative and I figured out why:

    I don't like the song Who Will Save The Sane?

    In fact, I dislike it. In related fact, it is the only TON song that I dislike. And whilst the rest of the album is about as perfect as it gets, that tune definitely mars the overall experience for me.

    So! In the spirit of Autumn and INCLUSION (which I'm sure Peter Steele would appreciate), I am going to listen to Who Will Save The Sane? over and over and over and over again this season, to force myself to like it.

    That is all.

    Couldn't wait til October, eh?

    Hmm, that is NOT the one song out of Type O's catalog that I would expect to hear that about. I don't like some of super short, chaotic, industrial type songs, but "Who Will Save the Sane?" is pretty classic gothic Type O.

    I put October Rust and Dead Again ahead of World Coming Down in my rankings.

    Dead Again is fairly weak, by TON standards, IMO. Halloween in Heaven, Some Stupid Tomorrow, and the massively overlong These Three Things bring it down. But Ode to Locksmiths, Hail and Farewell to Britain, September Sun and Tripping a Blind Man are primo TON

    WCD is my fave, but I do agree the 1-2 tag team of Everyone I Love is Dead and Who Will Save the Sane is where the album dips in quality. But damn does it pick up with the title track and my fave Creepy Green Light arrive and never falters henceforth.

    October Rust was my 1st TON and will always have a piece of my heart. But the bullshit noise track and talking intro and outro are dumb. I dont like My Girlfriends Girlfriend or the Cinnamon Girl cover.

    I'm comin' 'round on Life is Killing Me and has been my most played TON album since Dead Again ran out of steam.

    These Three Things is one of my top 5 TON songs. Profit of Doom and September Sun are also up there. I think I like every song on the album.

    I wore out Life is Killing Me when it came out. Seriously played it around the clock. I think I burned out and never recovered. It doesn't hit the same anymore. I'm gonna take the NAD approach and play it repeatedly.

    Wolf Moon is one of the most underrated TON songs.

    Song is great. Who doesn't love a song about eating a girl out on her period?

    apparently to Peter Steele (RIP) it was a thing. never tried it myself

    The 28th day
    She'll be bleeding again
    And in lupine ways
    We'll alleviate the pain

    Unholy water
    Sanguine addiction
    Those silver bullets
    A last blood benediction

    It is her moon time
    When there's iron in the air
    A rusted essence
    Woman may I know you there?

    Hey wolf moon
    Come cast your spell on me
    Hey wolf moon
    Come cast your spell on me

    Don't spill a drop dear
    Let me kiss the curse away
    Yourself in my mouth
    Will you leave me with your taste?

    Beware
    The woods at night
    Beware
    The lunar light

    So in this gray haze
    We'll be meating again
    And on that great day
    I will tease you all the same
