on 11/18/2001

On the whole, not a bad disc. If you can work around the neutering of Black Number One and a couple of the slower tracks. I routinely skip that track and Black Sabbath (from the Satanic Perspective). The Black Number One track hails from the After Dark home video, as well as being the track that Mtv dumped. Mike Judge of "Beavis and Butthead" and King of the Hill" fame unearthed it for one of the "BandB" episodes, but it's a sanitized version safe for the kiddies. Check out Bloody Kisses for the whole deal. There are some new tracks on the disc, not previously aired, although I would have liked to hear their cover of The Doors' "Light my Fire" which they played live at least in Des Moines. There are also some mixes of tracks from "October Rust" and "Bloody Kisses" that got the chopjob. Those were probably intended as radio edits, but the stripping down takes something out of the song. Least Worst of is a good disc for somebody who is at least superficially into Type O, dedicated listeners will want to check out the new tracks; it's not a bad disc to have for both camps. Read More

This humbly titled collection offers up some rarities from the catalog of Type O Negative, who've managed to turn their blend of goth, metal, and alt-rock into a long, successful career. Peter Steele's preternaturally deep voice--which bears echoes of everyone from Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy to Crash Test Dummies frontman Brad Roberts--is the band's most instantly recognizable sonic element. As we move through this compilation of alternate versions and other rarities, however, it becomes apparent that the band's knack for Halloween rock (complete with ominous bass lines, creepy guitar riffs, and evil keyboards) and mordant sense of humor are equally important to the overall effect. A goth band with a sense of humor? Try song titles like "Black Sabbath (from the Satanic Perspective)" and "The Misinterpretations of Silence and its Disastrous Consequences" on for size. Type O Negative is the goth band for people who think they don't like goth.
