The original CD release of this album was appalling, thin, weak and lacking punch, a very poor representation of this seminal album. The remaster corrects this, delivering a very well balanced mix that shows the great talent and freshness that Faith No More brought to the rock world at their peak. The second disc collects some odds and ends that are all worthwhile, though it's a shame the classic Perfect Crime from Bill & Ted is not included (Sweet Emotion, an early, rougher version with different lyrics is).
It's a shame we've had to wait 25 years for justice to be done to the album on CD (the original vinyl was fine... it sounded like THIS in fact), which has probably cost FNM the recognition they deserve amongst younger generations as the band that reinvented and reinvigorated "Heavy Metal", opening it up to a wider audience and creating the space in which Nirvana, Soundgarden, NIN etc could grow. Hopefully a new generation of fans will discover it now.
