5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 14 April 2001
By Keefaz
Format:Audio CD
This, along with Angel Dust, is the pinacle of FNM's output. It includes a wide variety of styles (wide, even for *this* band) and contains both FNM's most melodic and heaviest tracks. I think many people who slate this album assume it must be second-rate as Jim Martin isn't on it. Pah! The guitar playing throughout is incredible--in fact, the best of any of their LP's. 'Last To Know' is one the most majestic songs ever sung by the superb Mike Patton, and there are loads more really excellent tunes here.
If you like Angel Dust, you *must* get this album, it's as simple as that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best.. Album.. Ever... Almost. 23 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
You would think that after giving The Real Thing and Angel Dust to the world that the quality of FNM's output would start to slip... well think again. This album stands out from it's predecessors due to the stellar guitar stylings of Mike Patton's, Mr Bungle cohort Trey Spruance. He gives the band's sound a fantastic makeover and it was a pity that he didn't produce more music with FNM.
From the fantastic chugging guitar-fuelled vengeance anthem "the Gentle Art Of Making Enemies" to the lifting, gospel based "Just A Man" via the sordidness incarnate "Evidence" there is not one bad track on this album, much like The Real Thing and Angel Dust. Albums don't come much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars in my top 5 albums ever..... 19 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If anyone compares this or ever considers comparing this as a soundalike to Mr.Bungle don't trust them ever again. I also am a fan of Mr. Bungle and they don't sound like FNM one little bit (except for Patton's vocals).
This is by far their best work and it shows with tunes like Evidence and King For A Day.
Some compositions are beautiful, melodic, some eerie and create certain emotions and some just pound the crap out of your brain. Every one likes a good dose of aural brain-pounding!
Heres a track by track review:
1.Get Out;A rocker, fast and incredably catchy.
2.Ricochet;Damn good tune, mid paced, catchy, and amazing vocals.
3.Evidence;my favourite FNM tune, just magnificent. a slow jazzy number which justsucks you in.
4.Gentle Art Of Making Enemies;slightly mental, damn good song, speedy.
5.Star A.D;slow jazzy song with a sax solo.
6.Cookoo For Caca;hmmmm...do you with to heara more mental song(if one exists! maybe Mr.Bungle)
7.Carlaho Vohador;slow sleazy ballad,soft on the ears and a good song none the less.
8.Ugly In The Morning;starts off normal........ends with Mike Patton sounding like he's choking on his own phlegm......don't let that put you off though, its a good song!
9.Digging The Grave;the immediate single, catchy, punchy rock song.
10.Take This Bottle;another slow soft one, brilliant chorus, brilliant vocals, brilliant song.
11.King For A Day;like a depressing downward spiral, creates strong feelings. starts with "this is the best party i've been to.." ends with "don't let me die with that silly look in my eyes". Amazing song and atmsophere.
12.What A Day;Short,sweet,heavy and a damn fine, catchy song.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Untouchable Statement 6 Feb 2009
By Pablo K
Format:Audio CD
A truly incredible album. One of those records that completely reorientates your musical landscape, which instructs you in new ways of sonic pleasure, which conditions your way of thinking about music forever.

Expunging the last remnants of 'funk' in their repertoire, this album marks Faith No More's colonisation and reconstruction of metal, hard rock, and lounge music. There is no better exemplar of rolling aggression than 'The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies', no more satisfying screaming that on 'Ugly In The Morning' and few superior blasts of punk energy than 'Digging The Grave'. Mike Patton's unique lyrical skills infuse 'Caralho Voador' and 'What A Day'. The sheer diversity of genre and tempo, which also bears his stamp, confound expectations with wit and panache.

But the joy of 'King For A Day...' is that it exceeds all these specific moments of brilliance. It is a manifesto on rock-metal, a statement of what is possible that noone will ever really touch. The bands who claim to be inspired by Faith No More are all pale shadows, farcical attempts at mimicry.

Once you know 'King For A Day...' it will not be hard to understand why. Faith No More themselves could never remake this sound. They had to do something else, something equally brilliant. No, this is a truly unique album, born of a moment that can never be reclaimed. That is what makes it perfect on its own terms. Accept it, live it, love it.

Essential cuts: 'Ricochet', 'Evidence', 'The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies', 'Caralho Voador', 'Digging The Grave', 'King For A Day', 'What A Day' and 'Just A Man'.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER MASTERPIECE 3 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Forget all the reviews you here about this album which are accusing it of being a mix between FNM and Mr Bungle. Just because FNM have dared to be different again, people instantly criticise them. It would great to see Korn or Limp Bizkit produce something so different and unique, but that just wouldn't happen. King For A Day... is an album which contains no duff songs and a great range in musical styles from the sheer heaviness of Cuckoo for Caca and What a Day to the mellowness of Evidence and Caralho Voador, this album has it all. In my eyes it is the peak of an illustrious career from the rock godfathers of them all. Anyone expecting 14 songs written to the same format should look elsewhere but if you've got half a brain or any common sense you will know that something special was produced in this record. Any FNM fans without it are missing the pinnacle of every album they made. It contains the good aspects of all the others, and don't get me wrong, I love every FNM album. Instead of releasing the Greatest Hits album, they should just have re-released this. Ricochet is the best piece of music ever written by anyone or anything. A real rock classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars best rock/metal/alterative/thrash album ever
Remember buying this circa 1995. It divides opinion like pretty much nothing else -either 1 or 5 stars. Don't understand people who give 3 or 4 stars. Read more

When "Big" Jim Martin left Faith No More somewhat acrimoniously, there was a school of thought at the time that the band would die out. Read more

I was dubious of this album. I had thought that this album would suffer greatly from the lack of Jim Martin.
