HIM - And Love Said No: The Greatest Hits 1997-2004 Review

by Mike Rapin

It's that time of the night where I must do a review. I am so glad I picked the one I did: HIM's And Love Said No: The Greatest Hits 1997-2004. Really, I'm with what love said.

I'm sure you all have seen or known someone in this world that you would call a criminal. On TV or in real life, it doesn't matter. The thing about all those people is that they've robbed or killed or done whatever they did to be called a criminal in person. For me, HIM was the first criminal I have heard rob someone. I was literally robbed of 30 minutes of my life. And this isn't like 'oh man, the school just wasted 40 minutes of my life at that lame ass assembly' or 'if we didn't have that meeting at work, I wouldn't have lost 30 minutes of my life.' No, this was a literal robbery of my being. Just listening to this 'greatest sh*ts' (yea, I'm that clever) robs any listener with some kind of self respect part of their life.

This entire album was just so f*cking bad. I mean, how the hell does any person stand this sh*t? How was HIM able to create a god-damned greatest hits collection? The music is terrible. The lyrics are terrible. Everything is terrible. A CD of 45 minutes of silence would be better than this whole CD. And lead singer, Ville Valo might as well just use a voice-box...

Dear Satan and/or gods of metal, please smite HIM in any way, shape or form, even if only slightly enough to break the band up or at least destroying any and all spec of music/media this band has produced. Please.

End all: do not buy this album. Don't even download it. Don't even look at it at the store. Just don't. This album is atrocious... and it's supposed to be the greatest hits. All I can say is just no...
