There's NOTHING like getting the band back together. There's a new energy, a renewed sense of purpose.
I'm really pleased with the new Faith No More album "Sol Invictus', their first new studio album since 1997. "Superhero" has so much familiarity like a madman soup of nearly every previous FNM album wrapped into one song. Holy moley, if only this album went to #1 kids would riot. "I'd like to pull your wings off" in "Cone Of Shame" seems fitting. This is a genre bending album that you can't put down. Mike is as sharp as ever, as is the band.
There is the due elation in "From The Dead", there is purity, dark humour, and release. "Rise of The Fall" is a perfect centrepiece. Standout track for me is "Matator". It has a wonderful prestige to it, like a hint of '95s 'King For A Day'. A special mention of track "Motherf*cker" - is truly wonderful. There is no doubt you are enjoying the finest once again from one of our favourite bands of all time.
