..meant that right after being widly introduced to the mainstream, with a rocking, yet somewhat commercial( by there own standerds), the band pulls a complete 180, and releases a dark, menacing, and distorted follow up that seemed to concentrate more on pleasing thier fans artistically, as opposed to watering downthier music further to sell records, which I admire in bands.
The only problom that occured when this happened is that when Primus did it , supprisingly, thier album was a hit, sold tons of copy's, and remained a fan favorite, at the same time, wheras when faith no more released Angel Dust, it cost them thier fame. Which I find kind of strange because it means that the band's commercial downfall by the charts, was thier masterpiece by thier fans.
But enogh about me going on about how such a great album that got such great reviews, was the end of the bands huge fame streak, and actually start discribing that album.
First of all, this one takes a couple of listens to before it actually starts to hit you with it's greatness, first of all, when i first put it in my cd player, and turned it on, I thought that I had actually fast forwarded to the album's halfway point, which I guess is the only slight low point of the record(that and the disturbing lyrics of Be aggressive). But after a couple of listens, it starts to sink in( it also helps to look at the lyrics).
lastly I would probably not reccomend this album to you unless you've heard Primus, Mr. Bungle(Mike Patton's Psycotic side project), or other Faith no More. But if you have heard these bands, then I would reccomend giving angel dust a shot.
Yes, that's interesting, but tell me, WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THIS YET!!!!???
