Faith No More are a brilliant band. I will give them that. But they are definitely an acquired taste. Bands like Nine Inch Nails, Tool and their ilk owe a huge debt to Faith No More, who were doing it way before those bands thought to rip these guys off. Songs like The Real Thing and Absolute Zero are the blueprint that those bands used as model for theirs, and I'm really surprised that not a lot of people call them on that. Those bands went on to make millions, while Faith No More kind of just fell off the face of the Earth. Boo hoo hoo. Whatever. Anyways, the recently reunited group announced a shit load of shows over in the U.K., and to help promote it Rhino cooked up this 2 CD compilation of the creme de la creme of all things Faith No More. The Hits (From Out Of Nowhere, Digging The Grave, Epic), the Misses (R 'N' R, Ashes To Ashes) the B-Sides (Easy, Das Schnutzenfest, This Guys In Love With You) and the Unreleased (New Improved Song, Sweet Emotion). Pretty ecclectic collection of tunes. It's cool they threw the Chuck Mosley stuff in there too, as he was a huge part of the Faith No More sound. Check this compilation out if you're a Faith No More fan. Worth the cost for the booklet alone. From Rhino Records.
