5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you!
Thank you to the author for writing a book about my favourite band! Great to have all this information and detail in one place. Great research and written with obvious passion for both FNM and Mr Bungle. Recommended to any fan of the bands, or the genre.

This book seems to be written, published and researched by the same person, Greg Prato, whose writing credential is that he has written for Rolling Stone magazine.

This book seems to be written, published and researched by the same person, Greg Prato, whose writing credential is that he has written for Rolling Stone magazine. Prato seems very passionate about music and the musicians he writes about and must have spent hours trawling through tabloids and magazines to get the 'quotes' he references. Prato writes with warmth and enthusiasm but this is an amateurism attempt at biography/history/companion, with so many quotes from tabloids/magazines from last century after his promise at the start to 'leave no bloody stone unturned'. The silence from the musicians Prato writes about speaks volumes.

It is an interesting read but how can anyone fail to make interesting musicians and music sound boring? I would have loved to have read about how these bands developed their sound, musical influences etc. The title of the book seems misleading 'The Faith No More & Mr Bungle Companion' made me expect a different structure with more discussion about how these bands made the music they did, perhaps this book could have been broken down in two parts: the two bands and then broken down into albums, songs etc. What Prato has written is an attempt at historical narrative with very few sources/references that aren't from quotes in the media from the last century.

Not a fabulous piece of writing but reasonably comprehensive and very welcome considering the dearth of coverage of these two bands
