Anyone familiar with Patton's other band, Mr. Bungle, will feel that "Angel Dust" is an album that would seem more appropriate for Mr. Bungle than Faith No More, but it showed the variety of styles that this band could play. Sadly, this would be the last album for eccentric guitarist, Jim Martin, with the band, but he is in fine form along with Mike Bordin, Patton, and the others. All of the tracks are great, but my favorites include "Mid-Life Crisis" which might be the only real close commercial track on the album, "Crack Hitler", "Be Aggressive", which has cheerleaders and is an ode to oral sex, and "RV" which is a hilarious song, partly because Patton sings it in a white trash type of voice. His range on this album is incredible. The album ends with a version (instrumental) of "Midnight Cowboy", and considering that you hear all kinds of stuff on this album like organs, choirs, cheerleaders, etc, it seems appropriate.
You will probably not like this album on the first listen, unless you are a weirdo or a Mr.Read more ›
"Midlife Crisis" is the closest thing on this record to a "normal"-sounding song, normal being a relative term in Faith No More-land. A funky bassline, a menacing low-register verse rap, grand guitars and keyboards, and a twistily catchy chorus with Patton's voice weaving in and out. "A Small Victory" is strange, the melodic keyboard strains at times almost reminding me of Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" (? ), "R.V." is an absolutely weird piano-based song, sounding like a jester thumbing his nose at you, and the end track, the "Theme from Midnight Cowboy", comes out of nowhere, in character with the rest of the album.
There are fewer moments of sheer exhilaration and instantly appealing songcraft on Angel Dust than on its predecessor, The Real Thing. But Angel Dust is still one of those albums you can never finish exploring, and come back to time after time.

Worth it for collectors who can't find the original releases. Easily 5 stars for the content, but this review reflects the overall lack of any real remastering of the album tracks... Read morePublished 4 months ago by B Brown

Genius. Mike's voice changes here, from the nasal teeny bop that we loved in The Real Thing to his full deep voice in most of the songs of this album.Published 6 months ago by anavic
The album is still awesome. But, I really just wanted the original album, without all the extra live versions and covers. The CD itself is no longer cool looking. Read morePublished 6 months ago by CapnZ
