This review is from: King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime (Audio CD)
I understand what some reviewers are saying when they dislike the album becuase it is a bit of 'Faith no more' mixed in with 'Mr Bungle, but is that such a problem? Mr Bungle is classic music as well. Its true that Mike Patton does scream alot and some of the lyrics are very strange eg. during 'ugly in the morning' Patton screams out 'Dont look at me, im ugly in the morning' about 10 times in a row. But he does it so well that you cant help but get drawn in by it. The album has so many absolutely mind blowing songs. It starts off with 'Get out' which is full of energy and i love the drumming on it. 'Richochet' is just a beutiful song, and so is 'Evidence. There are Many hard and agressive songs such as 'The gentle art of Making enemies', 'Cuckoo For Caca', 'Ugly In The Morning', 'Digging The Grave', and 'What A Day', all of which are fantastic and really make we want to just jump around. One of my favourites is 'King for a day' its just truely amazing, it builds up slowly and beautifully into an amazing climax then gradually dies down. It all ends with the wonderful song 'Just A Man' which is a nice calming note to end on. Lets just say your getting your moneys worth here. People say this was Faith's worst album, it just goes to show how much was expected from this tallented band.
