5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Stupid July 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
FNM was around for so many years that it would be [silly] to compare this to their later works(at least during the first listen).For Vomitgod's sake,I should hope they got better.I personally LOVE this album.When I bought this, I was just looking for decent music.What I found was FANTASTIC! Chuck may not be remotely as talented as Patton, but he definately has a style and charisma.He has a kind of a punk rock cool. Hey, Patton was a fan before he joined.Most fans of typical bands resent the new guy, but because most of FNM's fans hopped on the bandwagon after "Epic", and a few more literate people with the stuff on "Angel Dust", that reaction is reversed.To the average listener, Chuck's the new guy.In that sense, neither he nor the rest could ever possibly compete.I purposely approach this record pretending that I never heard the rest.There is a real straight line through the different albums leading to the FNM you're familiar with.Newcomers should try this one out first(be careful,it's dark). If you have an open mind, check out this brilliant work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut album from a great band. September 18, 2008
By N. Hall
Format:Audio CD
It's puzzling why this album never got a domestic (USA) release on CD, only vinyl and cassette. If you want a CD of this album, you have to import the Australian disc, hence the slightly higher-than-normal pricepoint. Anyway, on to the music.

Contrary to many of the reviews offered here, "We Care a Lot" is actually pretty good and it IS comparable to the band's much later, 4th album "Angel Dust." WCAL is much better than FNM's second record, "Introduce Yourself" and features prominently many of the things I love about FNM-- dark & sinister lyrics and music, for one. Another thing I love about FNM is that they constantly reinvented themselves with each and every record and touched on almost every music genre known to man at one point or another during their 15+ year career. WCAL isn't as experimental as AD, but it is most definitely just as dark and features some of the band's best keyboard work of their entire run. Jim Martin's crunching guitar is also front and center here, and that's no bad thing.

It's too hard to pick highlights on WCAL because each and every track shines in it's own light. The band was getting a long very well at this early point in their tenure, and it shows in the music with each and every member contributing equally to the sonic landscape. Of the 10 tracks on WCAL, 2 are instrumentals. "Jim" is an acoustical piece played solely by guitarist Jim Martin, "Pills for Breakfast" is a full-band effort slightly foreshadowing what would be heard two records later on The Real Thing's "Woodpecker from Mars." Two more of the tracks, "We Care a Lot" and "As the Worm Turns" would be re-recorded on later FNM albums for whatever reason. The title track was re-recorded for the second album, "Introduce Yourself," with altered lyrics and a faster tempo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old but good January 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Faith No More album I ever got, and I still only have it on cassette tape, but it's one of my favorites. 'The Jungle' is one of Faith No More's best songs. This album has some great music and creepy lyrics. It's not comparable to say, Angel Dust, but it's still Faith No More doing what they do. It has the original version of We Care Alot, which I prefer over the Introduce Yourself version. Mosley's vocals take some getting used to, especially if you were introduced to FNM via Mike Patton, but they definitely work with the music. If you can find this one it's definitely worth picking up.

4.0 out of 5 stars This was it. March 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Well, it's not worth 100 bucks, actually no album is worth that much. And people think its internet piracy thats making people not buy albums. Well anyways I got this album way back when I was about 15. It's got more of a garage, under produced quality, which I kind of like, plus shows a bands growth later. If you look at it with a fresh light, as it's something different and anyone into Faith No More should be into something different. Anyways, I recommend if you know a friend with it, borrow listen to it or something.

This album (being the first of the band) is an excellent tilte and a rare one. You cannot find more originality in a band and We Care A Lot from Faith No More is just a kick-ass album. If you are a Faith No More fan like myself, you know what I'm talking about. But if you are not a fan, I highly recommend it to anyone who had a real good time in the 80's. Once again, great album!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars THE TRUE FIRST ALBUM April 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Most people and music critics would like you to believe that 1987's Introduce Yourself was Faith No Mores first album the truth is that 1985's We Care A Lot is the true beginning for this great band. Released into a time when 80's pop ruled the world and the only rock going was some lame hair metal this album was very refreshing and nearly 25 years later still sounds great.

Featuring original vocalist Chuck Mosley this album has four real stand out tracks, the title track We Care A Lot which is different from Introduce Yourself's version but is no less scathing in its attack on multi millionaire musicans who would like you to think that they are trying to heal the world. The brilliant Mark Bowen (who was once the guitar player for the band) is probably the best track on the album and is still played live today, The Worm Turns, which twists one way and the other and will have you coming back for repeated listens, Arabian Disco is also a great track.

Whilst Mosley is definitely no Mike Patton his style really suits the music on this album. The early sound of Faith No More would go on to influence a host of bands and sometimes their work with Mosley is overlooked which is unfortunate. As Always Roddy Bottum's Keyboard playing is a real highlight.

Whilst this album seems to be forgotten about and can be hard to track down you would be doing yourself a disservice if you choose to ignore it.
