5.0 out of 5 stars Their finest hour 11 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
It was a brave decision of Faith No More to make an album like this one, when it would have been an easier and more lucrative option to continue the pop catchfulness of its predecessor The Real Thing. Whilst the concept of generic heavy metal was fast becoming an anachronism, Angel Dust successfully managed to be heavy and dark without falling foul of standard metal cliches.
The opening track, Land Of Sunshine is as uplifting as it is dark. It's the kind of track that you could picture a few thousand youths jumping up and down to in time with its distinctive bass riff. The rest of the album, from Crack Hitler to the single Mid Life Crisis combines similar elements. A touch eerie and unsettling in places, but still capable of inspiring the listener to want to move.
As the thrash scene was imploding on itself and grunge was catching on quick, this album was part of neither of those movements. It sounded like Faith No More and nobody else. It was to ensure that the band never fulfilled its stadium potential, but also that they have produced an album that was at the cutting edge of their genre, without falling into a genre. And that takes some doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 12 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
It was 1998, and at two o'clock one cold morning in Cambridge, as a particularly drunken party was coming to a close, I asked a good and trusted friend to recommend something different to listen to- I had lived on a diet of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, etc for a long time. He simply said "Angel Dust, Faith No More" and then passed out.
The next day, I went to my favoured music emporium and purchased the record. Barely a fortnight has gone by since without it getting at least one airing, which is pretty good as I own and listen to a lot of music.
I was immediately blown away by the power and energy of this band and, being a big fan of Queen, appreciated the clever lyrics and theatrical heaviness of the whole thing. There are many twists and turns on this album- it is a ride of pure rock 'n' roll joy. Get it if you haven't already done so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and time-tested 11 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
This album is disturbing and brilliant. Cheery doses of funky slap bass and wah-wah vamps add a kind of perverse bounce to Faith No More's sometimes ear-haemorrhaging heaviness. And I haven't heard a voice so blood-curdling and smoky-sweet in such rapid rotation as Mike Paton's on this album. That this disorienting record never allows the listener to stay in any kind of comfort zone isn't to suggest even a hint of prog-stuffiness. Where it is eclectic it is gleefully so, often to the point of parody (redneck monologue, pipe organs, and that cover of Easy to close the album). But this always adds to the twisted fun rather than detracting from it. Listening to it in its 20th year, its clear that everything that was melodically interesting and unhinged in, say, System of a Down (though punkier and more accessible), had been mastered by Faith No More years earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars genius 2 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Mention three small words to bands like the Deftones, Korn, and Linkin Bizkit, and you'll see them turn pale, act like teenagers and say we're not worthy. Those words? Faith. No. More. And Angel Dust was their masterpiece.

Compared to the major rock records that preceded it, Angel Dust shows us exactly what rock music was capable of. Compared to this, Nevermind and Appetite For Destruction are just pop records with big loud guitars.

It's a thing of both extraordinary beauty and gruesome confrontation - even the cover art is oddly bipolar : a swan arising from a lake, reversed with a decapitated cows head hanging from a hook in an abattoir. Beauty and cruelty are the two driving forces in their music. And it is never more obvious than in "Malpractice" - four minutes of cacophonous riffling that suddenly but gracefully transforms into a lengthy recreation of the Kronos Quartet performing Shostakovich.

Angel Dust shows up most rock bands for the plodding visionless dinosaurs they are. It starts with a abrasive, screaming roar of guitars before following the same blueprint as the rest of the album : disparate sections of music shift tempos and styles within the same song - sounding like several different bands welded together and fighting it out at once, whilst guitars spew forth great big crunchy slabs of riffola and roaring vocals fight for your attention like screaming hyperactive children.

Vocals veer between a soft croon and guttural screaming. Lyrics range from the surreal and disjointed ("Land Of Sunshine") to paranoid evocative urban gangster fantasies ("Crack Hitler") . Guitars pick out gentle Country & Western touches on "RV" before grinding anything delicate into rubble dust on the following, colossal "Smaller And Smaller.

Format:Audio CD
In the 80s funk metal was pretty big for a short while. Like its successor nu-metal, funk-metal was based around a blending of styles from the harder rock elements and obviously a fair amount of soul and black elements too. Of course like nu-metal it was also a scene made up mostly of rubbish bands with incoherent and often patchy sounds. Faith No More and Red Hot Chilli Peppers were the two main exceptions, and while the chillis went on to progress into stadium rock giants, FNM took a very different direction in the early 90s.

To describe this album in only a few short words is near impossible, however, dark & twisted is a reasonable summary of the overall tone. This is the second album from the definitive line-up and the first where vocalist Mike Patton's somewhat perverse influence takes forefront. Musically, Angel Dust is a lot more keyboard & synth orientated than any other album they have released, not that this makes it any less heavy. Infact it is far less commercial sounding than anything previous. It does have enough accessable moments included however.

Midlife Crisis is a great first single, demonstrating their newer sound without offending anyone too much. Follow up A Small Victory is one of the slower numbers on here led by a sweet oriental sound building up to a full on rock crescendo. Everything's Ruined is a strangely happy tune about one man's success and eventual demise. Be Aggressive is probably the catchiest tune ever written about gay sex. Easy of course needs no introduction.

But this is not one of those singles albums, there is plenty more on offer here, especially for those after the heavier moments. Caffeine is one the best songs FNM ever made and acts as a template for the sound of many bands since.
