Product Description

Amazon.com

An amazing album, Angel Dust unfortunately has limited appeal, although perhaps "unfortunately" isn't the right word; the record's oddities are also what make it such a fascinating listen. "Land of Sunshine" is a rocker with a foot-tapping rhythm punctuated by insane laughter from vocalist Mike Patton, whose distinctive voice and frequently disturbing lyrics drive the album. To call it hard rock does Angel Dust a disservice; it's far more musically complex than such a label implies. There's the funk-influenced "Midlife Crisis," the ballad "RV" (a bitter monologue from the point of view of a middle-aged discontent sitting in his trailer), the hard-edged claustrophobia of "Smaller and Smaller," and the rock-married-to-electronic-organ "Be Aggressive," which includes positively inspired cheerleader chants on the chorus. Impossible to classify but incredibly entertaining (there isn't a single boring moment on this album), Angel Dust is well worth picking up. --Genevieve Williams

Let's go back to the time that this album was recorded. You are a band that has been around, even to the point of being on your 2nd lead singer in Mike Patton. Your last album was a surprise breakthrough mainstream hit thanks to the surreal song, "Epic", which broke into the Pop Top 10 and the video was constantly on MTV. Your band seems destined to break out and become a major commercial star. So what do you do? You release an album in "Angel Dust" that was so commercial unfriendly that you kill any chances of being pop successes. And what is wrong with that you ask? Nothing - it is just a gutsy move to say the least by this band that has influenced all kinds of "nu-metal" bands these days (none are as good as FNM).
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.

...asks Mike Patton on this, easily the most underrated album of the '90s - it is light years ahead of it's time. I bought this album when it was first released in '92, being 19 years old and already a pretty big fan of FNM, but nothing on earth could prepare the listener for this, and eight years later it still hits you like a sledgehammer. Quite simply, the most emotionally draining, mood altering album available. Genres collide, ideas explode and hooks crash together, and still it sounds as cohesive as a classical piece! Anybody who seriously thinks that Korn, Slipknot, etc. are the epitome of heavy music, get your head out of the sand and realize it was done as a masterstroke almost a decade ago, rendering all newcomers redundant. In my 900+ album collection, covering everything from jazz to country to classic rock to "alternative" (or whatever that means today) and back again, this astonishing, indescribable album is one of the top ten, an amazing & unforgettable journey from start to finish. "Angel Dust" is Faith No More's, not to mention heavy rock's, finest hour.

Faith No More. Three words guaranteed to provoke some sort of response, either a numb-brained "oh yeah, the hip-hop metal band", or an informed "the very eclectic gentlemen musicians". Having garnered an international reputation on the back of 'The Real Thing', the pressure was on the band to deliver an album of literally stadium proportions. And they did, but with a superbly oblique sense of humour, and an amazing mastery of melody. Starting with the sinister circus dance of 'Land Of Sunshine', complete with fortune-cookie/Church of Scientology lyrics, and ending with an inspired cover of the theme from the film 'Midnight Cowboy', Angel Dust never once ceases to amaze and enthrall in equal measure. Mike Patton (without doubt the most talented vocalist of his generation ; how many opera singers can also do grindcore growls?) displays his supremely capricious style with a personality unique to music, and it would be a fair assessment to say that Faith No More would be half the band they are without his prodigious creativity. Not to take away from their collectively fantastic musicianship, but Mike really brings the songs to life. 'Caffeine' displays the then-revolutionary song structure taken for granted these days by the 'nu-metal', but none of the new faux-psychos (the nearest would be Corey from Slipknot) can quite match Mike's unnerving appeals to 'relax, it's just a phase', nor can they open up such a song into the multi-dimensional masterpiece that it is. But Caffeine is nothing compared to the following track 'Midlife Crisis'. Quite simply genius.Read more ›

Faith No More isn't Faith No More if it plays by the rules, so as a follow-up to the platinum hit The Real Thing, the band cooks up this minor art-rock classic, whose song topics and music are about as difficult as they come. It's not even fair to categorize Faith No More as alternative rock -- the term is too mainstream for *this* band.
"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.

It's on "Songs to Make Love To," an EP that was released after Angel Dust. It was never on Angel Dust.
