24 karat gold pressing !New Numbered Limited Edition Mini-LP-Style Packaging! Peaked at #10 on the Billboard 200 chart. Worldwide sales of 3 million copies to date. Contains the hit singles 'MidLife Crisis', 'A Small Victory' and 'Everything's Ruined'. Co-produced, engineered and mixed by Matt Wallace (Blues Traveler, Maroon 5). Mastered from the original «, 2-track, 30 i.p.s. master mixes. MFSL engineers were quite impressed with the dynamic range and natural tonality present on the master tapes. When compared to previous versions, the new MFSL GAIN 2 mastering is much more dynamic, and reveals detail and subtleties not heard on other versions. This new MFSL Gold CD allows the full dynamic range to shine through, giving fans the chance to hear this album the way it was heard at Scream Studios, where mixing was expertly performed by Matt Wallace and David Bryson.
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

Top Customer Reviews
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

The CD opens with "The Land of Sunshine" an interesting track, the vocalist not only can do various voices and an insane laughter, this song is a rather nice song that just encourages toe tapping. Caffine is a preety good song, but does not top the next track "Midlife Crisis" which contains the chorus "You'r perfect, yes its true, but without me, your only you." which is a great qoute from a great song. RV is by far a very interesting track, in fact the song is more of a joke, its a light piano tune, with the first person narative of a middle agged trailer park trash. Smaller and Smaller is a good song too, a bit more heavy (If my memory serves me right, I have not listened to this album in ONE whole day.) then the others, Everythings ruined is also a good song, same with Malpractice, but the mellow but pleasent Kindergarden over shadows the last three, but I will not kid you, I love the song Be Agressive, because the chorus actually features a group of cheer leaders, well cheer leading. A small Victory is another nice pleasent song, the last three were all good to, but not as good as some of the others.
In my opinions the songs that you will keep skipping back and forth too are: Land of Sunshine, Midlfie Crisis, RV, Kindergarden, Be agressive, and Small Victory.
How ever the other songs are good also. Overall I strongly suguest this to all.
I bought this album in '92 on the day it came out, having owned only a handful of heavy music that caught my ear (metallica, etc). Angel Dust opened my eyes to sounds and emotions that I'd never heard or imagined, helping me realize that music isn't just a commodity for bobbing your head but an artistic form as complex as any other. It inspired me to learn music, and more importantly seek out fresh sounds independent of marketing. Connections with this album are immense: John Zorn, Boredoms, Naked City, Secret Chiefs, Mr. Bungle, and even modern jazz like Louis Sclavis when listening to the progressions. Of course there are better albums, but along with Nirvana, this is the most important landmark of rock music in the last 20-30 years.
Today I own over 600 albums, trying to absorb every sound around the world and include my own, and I consider this album to be the main cause. Of everything I've heard since, nothing has affected me as much.
