Angel Dust


One of the most demented discs ever released on a major label, Faith No More’s follow-up to their epic megahit proves that that wasn’t it. Mike Patton screams, whines, croons, flings bodily fluids everywhere, enlists Kurt Cobain’s anarchist cheerleaders to cheer on a sadomasochistic sex act. The rest of the band throws together death metal, funk, easy listening, everything up to and including the kitchen sink. Of course, they close things out with straightforward covers of the theme from a movie about a male hooker and a Commodores classic (the latter a bonus track, admittedly). All that and hooks, too!
