3.0 out of 5 stars THE SKETCH BEFORE THE MASTERPIECE., 27 Jan. 2005
This review is from: The Real Thing (Audio CD)
I recently bought this album again and i have to say that aside from SUPRISE YOUR DEAD, and EPIC this album has not stood the test of time. it is a album of its time the 80,s.
forget faith no mores first three albums as they have nothing much in common with the sonic masterpieces of the schitzophrenic angel dust or king for a day fool for a lifetime.
a great introduction to the mainstream for mike patton but ultimatly his influence and his potential were not used for this album. so my advice is check out angel dust first then king for a day fool for a lifetime then album of the year and finally this one.

An album doesn't have to be a masterpiece to be good. 9 times out of 10, a "masterpiece" is just an overrated good-brilliant album anyway.

Angel Dust was their peak, technically, and probably creatively. Everything thereafter was limping downhill. This was the album that really broke through for them, and in my view, is one of the greats of its time. The cover of War Pigs stands out, but there are no weak tracks...

i'm listening to this a lot all over again and to say it hasn't stood the test of time is bananas. i think it would be fairer to say it was waaaay ahead of its time.
