Product Description

Product Description

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

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

Faith No More's 4th (I belive it was the 4th.) album, while I heard it did not sell as much as their previous album "The Real Thing" I must say if you like good music purchase this CD, for it has a great price, and can keep you listening over and over.
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.

While Mr. Bungle is rightfully respected as a more original and musically groundbreaking band, the significance of Angel Dust in popular music is incredible. Preaching to a choir of underground musicians is a far simpler task than taking the pop structure of 3-5 minute songs and verse/chorus to a new level without bowing to the media, audiences, critics, or expectations.
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.

When Faith No More released this album back in 1992, grunge was in full swing, gangsta rap was on the rise, and most of the hair bands that had dominated mainstream music were getting started on their resumes. Thus, there was much going on that might have resulted in this album getting overlooked. As a result, most of the music-listening public lost out on what might be the greatest modern rock album, one that weaves between genres effortlessly, and takes the listener on a very dark trip through all sorts of demented minds and situations. FNM's sound on this album has been aped countless times, but none of the imitators have come anywhere close to the soul of this album, however dark it may be. It is known that there was internal turmoil taking place when the band was recording this album (mostly between guitarist Jim Martin and the others), and FNM was being pressured to follow up the hugely successful "The Real Thing" with another groundbreaking record. In my book, they delievered an album infinitely better than its predecessor, and sadly, not even closely rivalled by the FNM albums that came out after it. The opening track, "Land of Sunshine", forces the listener to examine the nature of true happiness, and suggests that the line between joy and senility might be rather thin. "Caffeine" is an angry trudger, "Midlife Crisis" is a foot-tapping, pseudo-rap boogie, and "RV" addresses the benefits of white trash parenting. "Smaller and Smaller" is tribal and atmospheric, "Everything's Ruined" is a jamming little tune that compares child-rearing to investing (with predictably disastrous results), and "Malpractice" weaves a dark yarn about a person whose greatest thrill is to be operated on.Read more ›
