Type O Negative – The Least Worst Of – Review

Type O Negative

The Least Worst Of (Roadrunner)
by Scott Hefflon

Cool: Not only is this a best-of record, it’s all different edits and versions. And a few cuts here are completely unreleased. Maxing out the CD’s time, this sucker’s sexy, gloomy, and funny in that Type O Negative way. Like covering Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath” from Lucifer’s point of view and changing Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe” to “Hey Pete” (in both cases, much like everything Type O does, the songs are entirely too long for the simple joke they represent – but most Goths I know do sigh and moan and wallow a helluvalot more than most’d think necessary). And, as usual, the silky bass voice of Peter’s is used for more classic rock lapses-in-judgment than most fans require, but I seriously doubt he gives a shit. Oh, I’ve been waiting for an appropriate place to plug this: If you’re into this kinda stuff, check out the Tiamat CD with the cover of the Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil.” That‘s what this kinda of music could be…
