Because of negative reviews on this record, I was hesitant to buy it. Finally, I decided to take a chance. Being unable to find it locally, I took a trip to F.Y.E. One of those 'you name it, we got it' places. (...) Granted, this is not King Diamond's best. It is not exactly "Them," "Abigail," "Conspiracy," or even "In The Shadows." But let's be fair about this. No matter how good any artist is, not every single record they make can be their best. There are elements that make this record worth listening to. It has Andy's great guitar techniques as well as King Diamond's creepy harpsichord techniques. The lyrics are fairly intense, and the record flows well. Granted, King Diamond has written better stories than Harry's fear of spiders. But one thing that is not missing (even in this weaker story) is King Diamond's captivating technique of showing his characters losing their sanity. (...)If you are a King Diamond fan, you will not want to miss this record. Alright, maybe you only want King Diamond's best. (Well, they are 'Abigail,' 'Them,' 'Conspiracy,' and 'In the Shadows.') But I suggest that if you are hesitant to spend the money, that you at least borrow this record and test it, rather than ignore it. This is truly an underrated record that you will miss out on if you are moved by the negative reviews. (...)

Four years later after "The Eye", King & Andy with new members of the band dish out "The Spider's Lullabye", an a-typical Diamond album, which might be the strangest story line King has put out. Musically, it sounds very similar to many different Diamond songs. Herb Simmonsen's guitar playing wouldn't catch my attention until "Voodoo", and La Rocque is brilliant as ever. Not an epic album, most of the songs, with the exception of the last four, are all self contained stories. But I always felt that "Lullabye" was a follow-up to "The Eye". The "eye" is mentioned in "From the Other Side", which leads me to believe all the songs are related experiences of other people, just like "The Eye". I'm sure a lot of Diamond fans might have been disappointed, but it really isn't that bad. Certainly not to be overlooked!

Most remasters nowadays are complete rip-offs. Usually it's a quick way for the record company to make an extra buck. Most of the time, the sound IS NO better than the original, in fact worse, due to over compression and just having the volume turned up to the point of compression. Well, ladies and gentleman, let me say, this remaster of the GREATLY underrated The Spider's Lullaby by King Diamond is one of the BEST remasters I have had the pleasure of hearing! In fact, it's more than just a remaster: I would bet my King Diamond collection that this album had some remixing done as well. Good remasters can go only so far, but on this remaster, many things are fixed sound wise. The double bass and percussion is MUCH more powerful sounding, no longer a flat, squishy sound that the original had. That was my biggest complaint of the original release. Guitars are slightly heavier sounding (and a MUCH better tone), keyboards are more upfront (as it should be on a KD release), the remaster doesn't have compression, the volume wasn't jacked up high, the bass is now actually audible, and the production all around is no longer flat and dull sounding. No, this is one of the BEST REMASTERS I have ever heard. If you own the original, this is definitely worth buying again, take my word for it. And for those of you who HAVEN'T head TSL, and hadn't done so because of the bad reviews, well trust me, this isn't the same album anymore. The songs itself are just as good as the albums before it, it was ALWAYS the production that held this album back. Highlights include From the Other Side, The Poltergeist (best song on the album, and one of King's BEST songs!), Moonlight, The Spider's Lullabye, and Eastmann's Cure (ALMOST as good as The Poltergeist). Do yourselves a favor and check out this MUCH IMPROVED version of King Diamond's most underrated album. You can thank me later!

This album was made after Diamond's five year layoff from his solo band due to various reasons, and it is a very good comeback. It was made right after his outstanding comeback CD's with Mercyful Fate ("In the Shadows" and "Time") and carries a distinct MF heaviness, imo. Unlike most KD albums, this disc does not have an album long story (although it does have a few songs that go together to form a short story), but that does not detract from the quality of the songs or the heaviness of the music. This is, imo, one of KD's heaviest solo discs. I like the album all the way through, but the standouts for me are From the Other Side (one of the best KD songs on any album, imo), Dreams, and To the Morgue. If you like King Diamond and/or Mercyful Fate, this is a disc you should definitely buy.

Not as intense story wise as some of his earlier efforts but so far King has yet to put out a bad disc.He"s phenominal and a top notch musician,front man, and story teller. Lets not forget those he surrounds himself with. Andy Laroque is one of the greatest guitarist of our time. Unfortunately because real metal is basically overlooked King and his cohorts will never get the attention they truly deserve!
