Editorial Reviews

Still proving that gothic metal need be mordant and humorless, New York's Type O returns with their sixth album of misanthropy, high drama and perversion with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Towering frontman Pete Steele is still the band’s focal point and his lyrics are more grotesquely hilarious than ever. Musically, Life is pretty accessible, eschewing much of the brutal, thrashy heaviness of Type O's early material. "(We Were) Electrocute" is a sleek, electro-pop homage to 1980s New Romanticism that showcases Josh Silver's funeral synth lines. The adrenaline-fuelled soft-rock rush of "I Like Goils" comes on like Andrew WK in a vampire cape. And "Less than Zero" finds Type O Negative revisiting one of their more surprising influences, the Beatles, as a sitar cuts through the eerie gloom. --Louis Pattison

Dark, Moody, Happy, Uplifting, Rock, Goth, Industrial, Catchy, Kitschy, Playful, Poetic, Silly; all this and more rolled up into one CD. Though I don't skate directly into the hardcore Goth music culture, I enjoy flitting about the edges of the genre and sampling what looks to be tasty offerings.
I thought that Type O Negative was strictly for heavy Goth aficionados, but I was wrong. If you like rock or industrial or both, you will probably like this CD also. Type O Negative's Peter Steele manages to blend all these different variations and inflections into a mix that doesn't deny any of its origins.
The first song, "Thi13teen" is a short instrumental, only one minute and not worth much mention as it is mostly an introductory piece. Following it is "I Don't Wanna Be Me", which is so darn catchy it's addictive. Fast and fun, I find myself singing this ditty in the halls at work.
"Less than Zero" uses a sitar in its hypnotic melody, with dark and gross lyrics that talk about snot and poop, pus and blood; all combine to form another of my favorites from this CD. I love the grinding of the guitars in combination with the relaxed sounds of the sitar and a bit of added conga drums to spice up the exotic flavor of the music.
"Todd's Ship Gods" is more about remembering what Father told you, bringing to mind how big adults were when we were little, and how whatever they said was taken for granted. I'm sure this is just my interpretation, but I like the song nonetheless and found that despite rather moody lyrics, the tune has an uplifting quality that is subtle but undeniable.

The extra tracks really make this disc a good reason for old school Type O fans to come out of the shadows. A far cry from the commercially pleasing "October Rust," but more depth and variety than "World Coming Down," this disc is a long awaited gem. Again, Type O Negative preserves their neo-gothic sound while mixing in elements of metal, rock and new age/industrial.
Notable tracks include "Nettie," "Anesthesia" and "Drunk In Paris." The highlight of the second disc (or of the whole album) is the "Suspended In Dusk" track from the import version of "Bloody Kisses," and the "Out Of The Ashes" mix of "Blood/Fire" from the Mortal Kombat Soundtrack. These two are a must have for Type O fans, conveniently added to this two disc set, as well as the spine-chilling intro to the second disc. Bravo for Type O!

i can count those cd which i loved from start to finish, on one hand. Life is killing me makes no exception, it's just 75 minutes of sheer gothic/groovy/doom/punk goodness. TON makes a jaw-droppingly (does such term exist?) organic music that meanders through all the above mentioned styles (and then some) and still comes out as in-your-face, remarkably tight music. jee, i almost forgot about the lyrics!
well just like the music, they also range from doomy lyrics about loss and despair, to happy-go-lucky downright hilarious (try the exquisitely 'macho' , "I like Goils"), more than a mere passing nod at punk (Angry inch) as well as tunes in the purest heavy metal vain such as "i dont wanna be me". this is greatness from start to finish and i'm even tempted to place it above "Bloody Kisses" because TON never sounded that good and catchy. well at least not for a whole straight 75 minutes!
for all of you cynics out there, this album is for you! Thank you, TON, for a blinding return to form.

**This review is intended do give the specifics on the EDITED VERSION of "Life Is Killing Me."***
When it comes to edited CDs, they went the easy route with this one. The first thing you must know is that the edited version only has 13 tracks, as opposed to 15 tracks on the normal version. The songs "I Like Goils" and "Angry Inch" have been removed altogether, rather than being edited for language. Of the remaining songs, only "Less Than Zero" is unfit for radio airplay. Thankfully, the editing on that one song was done very smoothly, removing the objectionable words completely while leaving the backround music intact. Type O Negative songs have had some sloppy "bleeping" edits in the past, so I was pleased to find that the edits here were much more smooth and unintrusive.
And as far as what was left IN, here's a general overview for the conscientious buyer. The title track leaves in the word "a**," and the edited track "Less Than Zero" leaves in the word "p*ss" (although the other "worse" words in that song have been edited, as mentioned earlier). There are no objectionable words beyond that. There are definite thematic elements, however, that may not be for the squeamish. Edited or not, this album focuses heavily on death and anguish. There are songs that examine revenge and suicide, so be prepared.
This is just to let people know what they're getting. I, for one, loved this album and thought that all the themes were dealt with in a beautifully artistic way. Type O Negative has a mastery of melody that never gets in the way of their heavy metal stylings, and they're in rare form on Life Is Killing Me.
That's basically it for the edited version. So if you're one who buys edited versions, make sure you realize that you're only getting one song that's actually "edited," per se, and you'll be missing out on two songs. It's STILL an amazing album, STILL worthy of five stars... just know what your getting.
