Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the one and only, FAITH NO MORE,
This review is from: The Real Thing (Audio CD)
There is great music and great music that changed the way that I felt about music, Faith No More are one of the bands that changed the way that I felt about music, they really were one of those unique bands that just had that something special about them that I just can't fully explain.
I first bought this in about 1992, so I was a fairly late fan, although I had heard the singles Epic and From Out Of Nowhere on their original release, it was this album that really got me into Faith No More, it was also great timing as not long after I bought this, the equally brilliant Angel Dust was released (talk about musical heaven in such a short space of time). Like I said I can't explain exactly what that special something is about them but you know that you really really like a band when you have to have every official album that they have ever released.
This album is as good as perfect, there is not one track on it that I don't like and I can also say this about Angel Dust and the underrated King For A Day Fool For A Lifetime. Although I like the first Faith No More albums with Chuck Mosely on vocals, it is these with Mike Patton on vocals that is Faith No More at their very best. Although I miss Faith No More, I am glad that they quit when they did as it just makes them more special to me and I always got the feeling that they were making music that they wanted to make and not to be a mainstream success which is another bonus.
If like me you like all types of heavy metal and for some reason you have never heard of Faith No More, then I urge you to check this and the other Faith No More albums I have already mentioned, because like me it might just change (in a very good way) the way that you feel about music forever.
