Product Description

Product Description

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

(I previously wrote a very short and mediocre review for this album, so I took the time to make a better one).
One word can describe this album: brilliant. Is there a more versatile album out there? If so, I haven't heard it. Every song sounds completely different. Each song is genius in it's own right and this album is anything but redundant.
"Angel Dust" has everything you could ever want in an album. You've got your radio friendly tracks like "MidLife Crisis" (the best song on the album and possibly the best song Faith No More has ever done) "A Small Victory", and "Easy" (a brilliant cover of the Commodores song by the same name). Then we have other songs that are too brilliant to be categorized, such as the hilarious song about trailer park trash (no offence to anyone who lives in a trailer) "R.V.", and "Crack Hitler. If you're a fan of hard rock, Angel Dust also has heavier songs like "Malpractice", "Smaller And Smaller", and "Jizzlobber".
In my opinion, this is probably one of the best albums ever made. A strongly recommended album for fans of all types of music.

FAITH NO MORE. The absolutely most influential and important hard rock band of the last 20 years, this is their greatest work. Angel Dust is the most amazing thing I have ever heard and the only album that can even come close is AiC's Dirt. Korn ripped them off. Disturbed ripped them off. Mushroomhead made an entire CAREER off one of these songs (check out "Jizzlobber" and tell me that every song on Mushroomhead's "XX" doesn't sound exactly like it. I dare you.) Each band member is a virtuoso on their instruments, but Mike Patton is the real star of this recording. Effortlessly jumping from operatic wails to death metal growl to bouncy rap to hilarious hick spoken word to lounge singing, this guy is absolutely amazing. He sounds like a different guy on each song. Who the hell else can pull that off? Another key player is Billy Gould and his amazing slap bass. Roddy Bottum holds each song together with his awesome atmospheric keyboard and this cd definetely wouldn't work without him. Here's a rundown of all the tracks:
1.) Land of Sunshine: Dominated by keyboards and Patton's signature singing style, this is an awesome way to start off the album. 10/10
2.) Caffeine: Awesome time changes and complete with a monkey chant in the beginning. Good, but one of the weaker tracks. 8/10
3.) Midlife Crisis: Sick Melody, cool rapping parts, awesome drumbeat. Definetely a good pick for a single. 10/10
4.) RV: Most people that own this cd hate this song but I think it's both hilarious and one of the stronger tacks. 10/10
5.) Smaller and Smaller: One of the more death metalish songs. Sick time changes and awesome screaming. 10/10
6.)Everything's Ruined: Never lets up and has an awesome keyboard. Has the best bassline on the cd. 9/10

..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!!!!???

Faith No More, with out them many bands now adays (Papa Roach for example) would not be around. Their third (?) album, Angel Dust, is quite different then their previous release "The Real Thing." and their last (?) album "King for a Day: Fool for a Life Time" in fact at times this album could be considered a "Novelty" album. There are many notable songs on this disc, the main track "Land of Sunshine" actually features a "Conversation" between a Psychiatrist and his Paitent and has Mike Patton's mad man laguther. The track Midlife Crisis features a line that is very interesting and easy to remember "Your perfect, yes its true, but without me you're only you." amazing track. A rather paculiar track is R.V. a balad about a middle aged white trash guy.
Overall this album is amazing, and features tracks that fans of hard rock would like, and tracks fans of rap would like.
I suguest this album to all. AND! it has a great price.
