5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Greatest "Live" Albums Of All Time January 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are a lot of people who don't know about Type O Negative's sense of humor and take them way to seriously. "Origin Of The Feces" is the album for those people. This live album is up there with NOFX's "I Heard They Suck Live".
"Origin Of The Feces" is actually better than their studio album "Slow, Deep, And Hard" which is where all the songs are from, except "Hey Joe" and "Paranoid". The crowd is quite hostile toward the band, persistently shout out negative comments, and throw beer bottles at the band members. The crowd alone makes this album worth listening to along with Peter Steel's comebacks for their insults. The most hilarious part of the album is when Steele announces they're playing their last song and the audience breaks out in applause for the first time.
The songs on the album have the excess trimmed off and are executed more clearly. Steele's voice comes across more emotional than any of their other albums, much deeper in the slow parts, and rougher during the fast parts.
It was a really big disappointment when I heard this was a fake live album. I had my suspicions because the music was to clear and well played. I also knew a crowd could never be that clever and humorous. But the fact that it's fake still doesn't bother me and the album was worth every penny I paid for it and then some. Type O Negative's humor is genius, but maybe I could be mistaking it for a lack of talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is an amazing live cd June 8, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
if you liked "slow, deep and hard", then you can't go wrong with "Origin of the feces". This is where type-o negative started. It's Peter at his best, dark and moody. I would definatly recomend this album to even the newest type-o-negative fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pete has a bad day... February 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
There is some debate over how "live" this album actually is. Some claim it was recorded in the studio. The liner notes say it was recorded October 31st 1991 at Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.
However it was recorded, Pete Steele and the rest of Type O Negative were having a bad day, and couldn't be happier.
Early in their career, the band were largely misunderstood, alienating the undeserved right wing following Steele's previous band Carnivore had picked up. They simply weren't hardcore enough for the skinheads. At the same time, the Gothic crowd who later championed the band, were scared off by the double kick drum flourishes, and thrash outs in many of the songs, but at the same time were drawn in by the melancholic, introspective lyrics, the theatrical vocals, and the doom laden keyboards and dirge-like arrangements.
Right from the start, the band are taunted with chants of "You suck, you suck!" but continue to play anyway. The jeers continue through the first song, originally titled "Unsuccessfully Coping With The Natural Beauty Of Infidelity", but more popularly known as "I Know You're F**king Someone Else". And the song winds it's way through pipe organ Gothicism, acoustic sections, hardcore singalongs, a Scottish accent, and thrash metal kick outs. It sounds a mess, but is an incredibly listenable epic.
The between song abuse between Steele and the audience is a treat, as are the moments when it all goes wrong. Third track "Gravity" breaks down completely, and in something reminiscent of Bad News or Spinal Tap, the band has to stop for an apparent bomb threat. "I guess this ain't your lucky day, huh? Let's just get this over with," mutters Steele as the band returns to the stage and blasts through a raucous version of "Pain".

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny as hell as well as musically great June 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is Type O's infamous fake live album, and the band couldn't be having a better time. Peter Steele's responses to the (fake) crowd's insults are ingenious. It's also interesting to see how they rearranged the songs from Slow, Deep, and Hard, at least if you already have that album. As the album progresses, you get to sit through a twisted cover of Jimi Hendrix' "Hey Joe" with words like "Hey Peter, where you going with that axe in your hand?", as well as a split up version of Xero Tolerance, and of course the classic "Unsuccessfully Coping...". Also, the cover of Paranoid at the end of the album (which they didn't try to make sound live) is amazing and one of my favorite Type O songs ever, I don't know what's wrong with the people who don't like it. It's more in the October Rust (I'm listening to that right now) style. Sadly, despite all these good things about it, I had to give it 4 stars because "Der Untermensch" is excluded and that was one of my favorites from Slow, Deep, and Hard. Also, the CD is a bit short (by Type O standards at least) to be worth full price, not to mention that almost all the songs are already on another CD. Most of the songs aren't played all the way through. If you already have all the other Type O albums though, by all means, go for it. It's entertaining at the very least. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars ok lets get this over with July 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
well ill be honest...the original cover art for this album kept me from buying it for five years but when i finally did...i was not dissapointed and any true Type O fan will not be either. The other reviewer is correct tho this is not a true live album...but i have seen them live and this is a good representation of that experience. Its hard to call this one goth because the Carnivore element is still in there a little bit...kind of an 80s guitar sound.But the classics from Slow Deep And Hard sound great "live" on this CD. Including the mysterious and sudden english accent towards the end of " kill you tonight",rumored in the Massachusettes area to be a poke at Al Jougenson's faux british accent, but I dont believe that really.Trivia aside buy this one it is well worth it, especially without the original cover art hahahahah

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Type O albums
One of the best Type O albums. Peter's tongue in cheek humor of self loathing is a refreshing take on their later albums.
