With Melissa and Don't Break The Oath being the two of the best albums in metal history, does anyone have a liking towards their later albums? I feel like Time is the best thing they did down the road and it's still a heavy rotation album for myself.

Great timing, as I've listened Mercyful Fate a lot past couple of weeks.

Melissa and Don't Break the Oath are classics, no doubt about this, DBTO being my favorite Mercyful Fate album. However, I really really like almost all their material, and honestly, I think Time and 9 are marvelous albums, damn near perfect heavy metal albums. Dead Again a bit lacking, but not bad really. Call me crazy, but one of my favorite MF song is "Church of Saint Anne" from 9.

Those new Metal Blade represses are really good, so go get 'em if you don't have already!

9 is also excellent heavy metal to me, don't understand why it doesn't get more love. And yeah, church of saint anne rips as fuck. Pretty much all of those songs get stuck in my head from time to time.

Love all the albums to death, but "Time" is for me the best record after the reunion.

I highly agree with that Negative Plane quote.

9 all the way.
Almost all songs are classic MF ,memorable and fully inspired.
After that, 'Dead Again'.Fantastic horror atmosphere.

All Mercyful Fate is good Mercyful Fate.

I was surprised when I heard the later albums. Didn't understand the hate they were getting at all.

Because liking 80's Mercyful Fate is a trend.

"In the Shadows", "Time", "9", in this order. "Into the Unknown" and "Dead Again" are all right, but don't have any outstanding songs in them...

Hm. I haven't bothered with anything after the fist two. Might have to change that. Seeing a lot of votes for Time and I've been seeing that LP all over the place in stores here.

Time is completely worth buying. It really is that damn good.
