Reviews

  • Greg Prato of AllMusic (3.5/5) – "With Dead Again, Type O Negative delivers another album of dark tales and even darker riffs, and will reassure morose metalheads that they can still count on Steele to spread the misery."
  • Jon Eardley of Last Rites – "A top-notch production, first-class songwriting, and competent musicianship all play an integral part in making this one of 2007’s early shining moments."
