This review is from: Angel Dust (Audio CD)
It was 1998, and at two o'clock one cold morning in Cambridge, as a particularly drunken party was coming to a close, I asked a good and trusted friend to recommend something different to listen to- I had lived on a diet of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, etc for a long time. He simply said "Angel Dust, Faith No More" and then passed out.
The next day, I went to my favoured music emporium and purchased the record. Barely a fortnight has gone by since without it getting at least one airing, which is pretty good as I own and listen to a lot of music.
I was immediately blown away by the power and energy of this band and, being a big fan of Queen, appreciated the clever lyrics and theatrical heaviness of the whole thing. There are many twists and turns on this album- it is a ride of pure rock 'n' roll joy. Get it if you haven't already done so.

King for a day doesn't even compare, this is their ultimate masterpiece. I found KFAD to be too gimmicky and quirky.

KFAD,FFAL is the absolute pinnacle of FNM, IMHO. Angel Dust is great but not as good as The Real Thing & on a par with Album Of The Year. Again, only IMHO ;)
