 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Danse Macabre (book)
Danse Macabre is a nonfiction book by Stephen King on horror fiction and United States pop culture.
But DANSE MACABRE, his book-length essay on horror in pop culture, is like the seed-bed of everything I later came to dislike about King: a rambling conversational style, half Aesthete and half Reg'lar Folks and inauthentic as either; shameless name-dropping and boosterism; and a relentlessly middlebrow worldview powering the vehicle.
Lazy, jokey and even bad writing fills DANSE MACABRE from stem to stern, King trying to be both hip and square on every page; a completely unsatisfying compromise that reads as awkwardly now as office-workers must've looked in their tie-and-jeans ensembles on the first Casual Fridays.

 The Faint: Danse Macabre Remixes - PopMatters Music Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-23)
Danse Macabre Remixes is, well, a remix album, obviously, collecting new versions of every track from The Faint's third studio album Danse Macabre.

Danse Macabre dripped in paranoia, and it was that distinct, '80s-style paranoia felt by anyone who wasn't a Reaganite capitalist/neo-conservative during that decade.

 The Faint - Danse Macabre : Tapefuzz.com Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-23)
My impression of Danse Macabre based on the first 30 seconds: these guys are just a cheap novelty act, too talentless to have their own style, so forced to co-opt a smarmy, kitschy shtick abandoned long ago--one of the tackiest ones they could have chosen, I might add.
Danse Macabre surely shines too brightly for most people to find it anything but fun and infectious.
The only reservation I have is that Danse Macabre seems to bear a certain shallowness that I can't seem to pin down very well.

 THE METAL OBSERVER - Review - DANSE MACABRE - Matters Of The Heart
As their album "Eva", that has been released last year, was simply excellent in that Gothic Metal-style, DANSE MACABRE simply use that buzz they have to release a brand new mini-CD, especially cooked for you.
On the menu, you have first a remastered version of the track "Danse Macabre" (weird choice by the way, because there were better potential singles on "Eva"), a decent new track called "And I Bleed", three nice remixes of "Danse Macabre", "Oblivion" and "Trojan Horse", and finally two video tracks.
The first one is a video clip for "Danse Macabre", quite average, but views of the band together with a dancer, which is really Goth and could make you laugh, even if graphically speaking that's a good job.

I don't quibble with this factual error, or that questionable judgment; my main problem with DANSE MACABRE is that its tone - a blowhard holding court with tiresome anecdotes and self-important pronouncements, and falling in love with the sound of his own voice besides - began insinuating itself into his later work with depressing regularity.
When Danse Macabre first came out I was in the middle of a "Stepehen King Period," of sorts, having taken it upon myself to finally read the books of this author whom so many people had raved about for a few years.
Various bits and pieces of Danse Macabre have stuck in my mind over the years, but only in the most basic sense, such as King's description of the EC horror comics of the fifties, and I recently found myself tracking down a used copy due to a renewed interest in horror.
