One of the much better hits albums of Legend band
on 12 May 2010
Here is yet another greatest hits album from Faith no more, after at least three others in maybe less than ten years. Not that they don't deserve it- they are one of the most vital alternative rock bands of the last twenty years or more. Around the end or big stadium rock and glam hair metal, when most bands were posing and pouting here came this band with their evolving very unusual mix up of funk, rock, prog, tribal drumming, new wave and punk elements fused into a unique style just thier own. Along with bands like Red hot chili peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Jane's Addiction, Living Colour, King's X and a handful more they created a new more open-minded modern fresh and relevant rock metal sound.
Of all the Ninties rock and metal bands, this one always remained unpredictable, strange, mad, but also put out many very catchy amazing songs which always pushed musical boundaries, as the band blended in all of their individual musical interests and ideas.
This collection has a list apaprently chosen by the band, with many of their best tunes over their existence and for collectors and fans the draw is definately the extra disc of rare tunes and hard to find B-sides. There were two that I had never heard which were well worth getting it for as well as a number of the album tunes being remastered to a different quality than before. Very good collection comemorating a modern legendary rock band.
