Customer Review

on 4 August 2001
This is the first album that FNM recorded with their new singer Mike Patton and what a breathe of fresh air he was compared to Chuck Moseley. On this album Mike Patton injects all the songs with his nervous, strangulated vocal style that compliments the music. My favourite tracks are "Underwater Love" "Falling To Pieces" "The Morning After" " The Real Thing" and there's a blistering cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs". I have to admit that I hated FNM when I first heard them on the radio, but I remember listening to the track "Epic" and that haunting piano solo at the end of the track stuck in my mind. This was a band that had the power and excitement of hard rock but the attitude of the music prevented them from being lumped into the HEAVY METAL category. There is just one instrumental on The Real Thing, "Woodpecker From Mars" and some will find it a bit manic but its only a FNM freak-out. Its funky, its heavy metal, its soulful, its all these things and much,much more...one of the most memorable and innovotive albums of the last decade. Its....The Real Thing.
