Download the rarities
on 3 June 2009
We'll never agree on what the "best" tracks are will we? I mean Faith No More have so many styles, singers, lead guitarists and the like that we will not agree on what is their best.
And therefore there is a little joke in the title,as befits a band that was never overly serious.
Personally, I am dissapointed that there is very little Chuck Mosely fronted FNM (2 songs + 1 on the Bonus disk) as the Introduce Yourself album in particular was brilliant. And Chinese Arithmetic was my favourite track.
So let's not argue about what SHOULD be on here. Let's marvel at the fact that someone has seen fit to include a couple of REAL RARITIES.
"Sweet Emotion" (not an Aerosmith cover) was only available on A Kerrang Flexi Disc and would have fitted easily onto The Real Thing - yes, it is that good. And New Improved Song (featuring Chuck Moseley!)was only available on a Sounds 7" and was again of a quality that could have made it onto either of the first 2 Chuck fronted albums - These are real rariries and never before available on CD. So Thank You whoever saw fit.
Download these tracks and save yourself the cost of buying all the other songs you already own.
Or buy for the first time and revel in the twisted genius that was Faith No More.
Their like may never be seen again on such a large stage.
