I'd like to see some b2b reviews of that, and thennnnn... and thennnn... some IceT OG, that would be brutal. Seriously. If you get a chance, of course. Same era kind of thing.

I think audience demand is overruling you TH. It's time to suck it up and listen to some Slayer. Punk.

Can't quite stretch to that at the moment. How about this instead?


Title: Angel dust
Artiste: Faith No More
Year: 1992
Chronological position: Fourth album
Previous experience of this artiste?: Zero, unless you count the cover of the Commodores' "Easy"! Oh look: it's on this album!
Why is this considered a classic? (shrug)

My thoughts
One minute (or thereabouts in) ---- Good, great, bad, meh, still waiting or other? Great
One track in --- Great
Halfway through --- Good
Finished --- Still waiting...

Comments: Sort of surprises me with a quite proggy opening track, not really what I was expecting at all. I wouldn't be crazy about the vocalist but I wouldn't refuse to listen to him either. The music is very good though. Bit Waits-ish on "RV", mixed with some Cave too. Mm. Interesting the way it develops. I find my attention drifting as the album goes on, but I recognise there are good tracks in here. I need to listen to this again, preferably giving it my full attention.

Favourite track(s): Land of sunshine, Midlife crisis, Everything's ruined, A small victory, Midnight cowboy, Easy (of course)
Least favourite track(s): Malpractice, Be aggressive

Final impression --- To be honest, this is the first album I've listened to where I'm completely unsure how I feel at the end. I may end up loving this, hating it or just being meh about it. I will definitely have to listen to it a few more times before pronouncing my verdict on it.

Do I feel, at the end, A) I wish I had listened to this sooner
B) I'm sorry I bothered
C) I might end up liking this
D) Have to wait and see
E) Bit underwhelmed; was ok but a classic?
F) Definitely enjoyed it, but again would I consider it a classic?


C and also D

It was added on later, It wasn't on the original.

So you never heard "Epic"? I thought everyone knew that song.

Everybody with a set of ears has, even if they don't know the artist.

I just think the fact you're listening to stuff you've not heard before is an opportunity to look at stuff you wouldn't normally listen to.

Plus let's be honest, you write lots of reviews. Now I know you've not heard Close To The Edge and while that does surprise me given your tastes you pretty much know what to expect from that album. I'd much rather throw something like Funkadelic's Maggot Brain or Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica at you and say 'Now let's see what you make of this'. Obviously I'm not saying don't do Yes. I just think that this journal will be more interesting if you pushed the unknown a bit more.

Oh and if I was to write a list of 5 classic albums for you....

David Bowie - Low
Primal Scream - Screamadelica
Massive Attack - Mezzanine
P.I.L. - Metal Box / Second Edition
Black Flag - Damaged
Maggot Brain is an amazing album, this is the password to my computer haha. That must be one of the greatest guitar solos of all time.

Close To The Edge is incredible too.
