4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER ONE?!!! 15 Nov 2010
I gave this four stars, simply because the music is first rate. At this juncture I don't know whether the tracks contained on this two CD set are remasters or original mixes. It matters not.

If you don't own these songs by now - CATCH UP! This is great stuff from the heyday of American alternative metal. It's easily up there with RATM, Living Colour, Prong, Ministry, Mordred, Jane's Addiction, Fishbone, Mr Bungle etc, etc, etc...

However, I think yet another 'best of' is pushing things, particularly as the last one in support of the band's reunion was a fitting epitaph. Why do it again? And so soon after the last one?

In summary - great music, but ultimately a pointless release. We have been here before - Six times now! It would be nice to see a remastered Region 2 DVD for the music videos and 'Live at Brixton Academy'

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an underrated group! 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
While I can understand the annoyance some fans have with the release of yet another 'Best of' album, for the price on here (currently 3.50 as of 3/1/14) it can't be beat. I ended up investing in two copies - one for myself and one for my friend who has yet to listen to the album. I already own a previous greatest hits album (that feature's Edge of the World, Anne's Song and We Care a Lot (live version)) and the 5 pack album set (where the Real Thing album has a fault causing the CD to switch off after the intro to Zombie Eaters!).
For my money this album is well worth it, as you get 39 excellent songs on two discs. Anyone new to FNM (I'm a recent convert - thanks to hearing the brilliant track Epic on a local rock radio) this is an essential purchase if you don't fancy trying the individual albums instead. My personal favourites being Stripsearch and Ashes to Ashes. This band is so immense it is difficult to really pigeonhole them in to a set genre of music, as literally they can play any sort of music. I admit to being more of a fan of the Mike Patton version rather than the Chuck Mosley version (As I dislike his style of singing), I still reckon there isn't a weak song to be found on this album. Patton is an amazingly versatile singer and the musicianship is excellent - the quality of the studio albums are brilliant.

In summary; even if heavy metal is not your usual genre and you happen to hear a track by FNM that piques your interest, give them a go - invest in this album and within no time you will be a convert, like me. I feel that as a group they really do not receive the recognition they deserve, with more praise being heaped upon Nirvana (and the personality of Kurt Cobain) and their influence to modern music than they possibly warrant (this is not a 'diss' of Nirvana by any means!). FNM played a diverse mix of music and had their own distinct and influential sound that predates many modern bands and has rarely, if ever, been bettered.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid music 27 April 2012
By james p
Great album, I bought this album to widen my knowledge of FNM. All good songs, however the album could have been put onto one cd. War Pigs cover is a highlight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best comp so far--but FNM really just needs a box set 20 Sep 2013
By Barrettbowie - Published on Amazon.com

Faith No More were one of the most awesomely forward-thinking and criminally underrated "alternative" rock bands of the 90s. Despite their influence and sucess, however, their messy, fascinating discography has yet to be properly curated, anthologized, remastered, and presented in the form it deserves (i.e. there really needs to be a multi-disc, chronological box set that collects all of their albums, singles, B-sides, live cuts, and outtakes into one gloriously eclectic package.)

Until that day arrives--and yes, it may never arrive becasue of the obviously dwindling market for CD collectors like me--this is the best package available.

Here's a quick breakdown of what you get: 5 (worthy) cuts from the Chuck Mosley era, 6 tracks from The Real Thing, 7 from Angel Dust, 4 from King for a Day..., and 3 from Album of the Year. And yes, the schmaltzy, glorious covers of Easy and I Started a Joke are here as well as 12 B-sides/outtakes/live cuts released over the years on Japanese 7-inches and/or the original Who Cares a Lot? compilation. I think there's also a Kerrang! magazine disc rarity too (see what I mean about their messy back catalog?) The bottom line is that you get mostly everything that has previously been issued on the other earlier compilations (Glaring omissions IMHO, include "Be Aggressive" from Angel Dust and the two weird, wonderful other covers on the "Songs to Make Love To" EP.)

There's no evidence to my ears of remastereing, although this might be a case of crappy remastering that has reduced the dynamic range, or inherently poor quality of the original recordings (I think this is especially an issue with everything up to and including the Angel Dust era). Ultimately, I would say the audio quality is overall acceptable if not spectacular.

Order came in quickly and perfect condition, price was great.

This 2 disc set is a very good collection of songs, some could have been omitted and better ones added to make this collection perfect. Anyway highly recommended.
