|Heavier than October Rust, although the songs aren't necessarily better. It's Type O doing what they do, gothic gloom and morbid humor solidly in place. World Coming Down completes the trilogy of classic Type O releases. The next two albums are okay, but nothing the band doesn't do better on Bloody Kisses, October Rust and World Coming Down.

|If October Rust was the "sex album," World Coming Down was Type O's "death album." Even two of the three love/sex songs are about dead women. Meanwhile, Peter Steele was grieving the death his mother, and well on his way to becoming a full-blown cocaine addict. ("What kind of an asshole starts using hard drugs in his mid-30's?" he asked later.) So we get songs about all of that, and the three sound-effects tracks that depict the ways in which the band will most likely die (from drinking, smoking or coke). For me, the best songs are "Everyone I Love Is Dead," the October Rust-worthy "Creepy Green Light" and first single "Everything Dies." The title track is a massive, downcast epic of grief and self-loathing, while "Pyretta Blaze" is another ode to a (presumably live) goth girl. It's all capped off with a Beatles medley to show you there's more to the band than Sabbath and the Cure.
