      King Diamond's second live album (2004).

      With a discography as diverse and conceptual as King Diamond's, attempts to compile a collection of the 'best' songs is always going to be difficult, but the band makes a valiant effort with this live set-list recorded on the tour for 'The Puppet Master.' To promote that new album, the band obviously chooses to perform several of its songs in place of old classics, but it was such a good album in any case that this doesn't present a problem.

      The set opens with a selection of songs from the classic 'Abigail,' clearly an admission by the band itself that it hasn't recorded anything quite comparable in the decades since, and after this follows a well-chosen mix of classic cuts from "Them," 'Conspiracy,' 'The Eye' and the more recent 'Abigail II,' seemingly ignoring the comparatively forgettable releases from the 1990s altogether. As most King Diamond albums follow a conceptual story, the songs are arranged well to avoid the narratives clashing with each other too badly, not that fans familiar with the plots would care anyway.

      It's to the band's credit that the new songs from 'The Puppet Master' opening disc two are greeted with as much enthusiasm from the crowd as the later old-school classics served up for encores, and it would be difficult to top this as a King Diamond live release.
