Type O Negative has delivered either death-metal's first progressive rock concept album, or it's "Good Vibrations"... or maybe both. Either way BLOODY KISSES is one of the most alluringly weird albums in the history of the genre-an hour-long ode to break- ups and suicide that mixes acoustic guitars and synthesizers with metallic power chords, and lush choral harmonies with a lead vocalist who sounds like he died sometime before the recording process began. That last bit is meant as a compliment; if you're going to attempt an eleven- minute suicide dirge like the title track, you better be either Leonard Cohen or dead, and Type O's Peter Steele has a bit of both in him.
