Faith No More: Angel Dust v. The Real Thing

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

I love both...The Real Thing is full of pop goodness ("Falling to Pieces") and even some thrashy metal ("Surprise, You're Dead!")...

Angel Dust is such a different beast. Despite its weirdness it always has this depressive vibe to me (then again, I bought it the week I started taking anti-depressants for the first time so it might bethat instead).

But I vote Angel Dust on the strength of "Everything's Ruined", "Land of Sunshine", "Caffeine", "Kindergarten", and "RV"....

Angel Dust isn't only their best album but one of the best ever made.

I never got the hang of Angel Dust. When I first bought it, I took it back to the store because I thought the cassette was warped (it was actually keyboards in the background). RV and Be Aggressive had too much of a novelty flavor. I don't really like Crack Hitler or Jizzlobber. There are some great, great songs to be sure: Land of Sunshine, Smaller and Smaller, Everything's Ruined, Small Victory ... but they don't really make up for the ones I don't like.

The Real Thing also contains some songs I don't dig on; Falling to Pieces is way up on that list. It has the distinct advantage however, of containing one of my favorite fifty-percents of an album this side of Abbey Road. Starting with the title track and moving on through Underwater Love, The Morning After, Woodpecker From Mars and War Pigs. I go pretty nuts whenever I hear this. I'm going to go listen to it now.

The only thing I'll say about the matter is that buying Angel Dust remains the first and only time in which a record store clerk refused to sell an album to a minor.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Friday, 4 January 2008 00:51 (nine years ago) Permalink

haven't heard AD in ages but it's the only album I've ever bought 3 times: on tape, then on CD when the tape broke, then eventually a third nostalgic copy when the other CD burned in a fire that consumed 50 of my discs. I don't think I ever listened that third copy.

Album of the Year was oddly the first FNM I heard all the way through and outside of Collision, Ashes to Ashes, and STripsearch, it's pretty boring.

Angel Dust is a phenomenal piece of art that I don't listen to that much for the same reason I don't listen to a lot of other great albums that much, which is that I don't want to wear it out for me. I pull out The Real Thing more often, since that's their great pop record (although I'm more partial to the first half). I am going to have to say Angel Dust, though.

Jeff Treppel, Friday, 4 January 2008 01:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

Angel Dust is a terrific record, The Real Thing merely a fun one. I think Album of the Year is actually pretty enjoyable the whole way through, but realise I am in a minority.

I listen to Angel Dust all the time, still, and have for so many years. just a stone cold classic. Real Thing is great too, particularly Falling to Pieces. But I never warmed to any of the later albums.

Yeah, The Real Thing is fabulous. Angel Dust is my favourite. King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime, with a bit of editing, could have been up there too.

this is a tough one because angel dust was v challenging for me as a middle school student and did a lot to broaden my musical mind

but on balance i think real thing kills it, there is not a bad track on there whereas it is easy for me to pick out flaws in individual angel dust tracks

angel dust has aged a lot better. i'll still rock out to the real thing but i don't know how i'd feel about it if i heard it for the first time now.

angel dust, no question. much more ambitious and largely successful.

patton still has that super-nasal thing going on the real thing too. was never too into that.

I think "Angel Dust" may be "better" and more "ambitious," but I would be lying if I claimed I actually liked it more for those reasons. My honest response remains that I like both equally.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 1 March 2012 20:20 (five years ago) Permalink

five years pass...

if there is one song that tips Angel Dust over the edge to me, it's "Kindergarten". jesus christ that song. the moods, the keyboards, the chorus, the staccato vocals.

i could listen to that shit on loop forever. and the guitar harmonies at the end is like...climax

the "Held back again" vocals always give me chills.....

this album I bought when I was 19 when I had started antidepressants for the first time and that combined with the sometimes depressive vibe the album gives off used to just fuck with my mood. once I got past that personal baggage this thing just wouldn't leave my player

Yeah, this was one of a handful of albums (alongside Badmotorfinger, Dirt, Psalm 69, the first Mr. Bungle, etc.) that were way too good at feeding my fourteen-year-old depressive moods and that I listened to way too much and that I've just in the last few years started learning how to approach without those associations.

Tomahawk's first record is the perfect encapsulation of what Faith No More ended with, I don't think Patton's done another record quite like it. Love "Angel Dust" particularly " Jizzlobber".

I think Tomahawk's most recent album is very good, the most stripped-down and straightforward thing Patton's done for a decade plus.

King for a Day is great but the benefits of having Spruance are also a hindrance in that he brings more of the genre-splicing of Bungle into the mix. Which isn't bad, but "Star AD" and "Evidence", while I love both, are kinda kitschy in a way that Angel Dust isn't.

There aren't really even any songs I dislike from it, but I enjoy the highs of Angel Dust more.

― Whiney G. Weingarten

The issue with KotD is that it crosses over into simple genre parody too often, which is less interesting no matter how well done those parodies might be. On Angel Dust it's more like each individual song combines several genres to create something original. The more enduring songs on King for me are the ones that attempt that, such as the title track, Ricochet and Last to Know. Something like Evidence is fun and very listenable, but not as exciting as their more experimental hybrid tracks.

kurt schwitterz, Wednesday, 8 March 2017 19:39 (two months ago) Permalink

Much of KFAD is very good but too often it's like Patton and Spruance weren't quite finished purging their Bungle-fied juvenilia. While Album of the Year isn't as good an album overall as KFAD, it's more consistently good (and I might go so far as to say that FNM, as much as I love them, never put out an album as consistently good as California).

California and Angel Dust are my only two serious contenders for best Patton album.

Let's gossip: I think it's fucked up how Mike treated Trey at the end of Mr. Bungle.

I think I'd be more afraid if everyone was in agreement re: FNM, Tomahawk, Peeping Tow, Fantomas, Mr. Bungle, Lovage, solo, Zorn stuff, et al. They're sort of designed to defy consensus.

Hey Kurt - how did Mike treat Trey? curious...

Favourite Patton:

Mr. Bungle - California - Would kill to see a documentary on this illuminating the weird tape methods they used.
Mondo Cane - S/T
Fantomas - Suspended Animation
Faith No More - Angel Dust

King For a Day... is my favourite FNM album at this stage.

Coolio Iglesias (Turrican), Wednesday, 8 March 2017 21:45 (two months ago) Permalink

The story goes: Mike wouldn't talk to Trey directly and wanted all communication go through Greg W, former Jello Biafra/AT biz dude and the guy Patton founded Ipecac with. Trey didn't want to do business through Greg and wanted to do things like they always have (they are all childhood friends). This caused a huge fight and Mike, when asked about the future of Mr. B in Rolling Stone, said some pretty mean shit about Trey.. he is a self centered egomaniac or something. Trey handled it in the press with much more class.

Trey: As time wears on you find out who your friends are, and who they aren't. Mike and I always had the best working relationship imaginable. Really, very very good and fruitful. There are other things in life we see differently. I don't think those things are irreconcilable at all. But when you get used to having things your own way, and certain people around you resist the "natural order" of becoming subordinate to you, you may start nursing resentments. Even lashing out at them and calling them egomaniacs etc. for not assuming the position. I think in my case it was too painful for Patton to realize that where there are no subordinates there is no insubordination. Like most of us, Mike tends to begin the process of deciding whether or not he can afford to discard a person's point of view altogether, rather than facing certain difficult facts of life. So to answer your question, there was never any big mess between he and I specifically. The general dysfunction coming from being expected to silently endure more and more of this emerging top-down/top-dog order-barking thing he'd taken to just ended up getting really tiresome for everyone involved. In a band, strong personalities need to know where to draw the line on this kind of stuff. Anyway, since it wasn't going to happen, I was the idiot who started to draw that line. I admit I had more emotional involvement in the process than would be neccesary for a non-robot, having poured comparatively ridiculously copious doses of my blood into the project. Patton's subsequent resentment towards me is a fairly predictable outcome. You don't stand up to him and stay off the shit-list. A bummer, yeah, but its essentially a self-protecting reflex action - something I don't really feel a need to hold against him too much. He has his way. It won't change. And after all why should it? This method works well for him overall -- who am I to question it? I dare say it's even part of his charm. (we are a nation of pathological narcissists after all!). Whatever. Really, I feel fondly about the time we spent making music together, and feel we did some great things. And, while I am diametrically opposed to it on a human level, over time I do appreciate the clarity of his cut and dry approach: how black and white it makes things. You're either in the club, or out of the club. Unfortunately, I have to say I do prefer life as an excommunicate from that kind of 'friendship'. I know he prefers it that way too. I'm sure both of us would agree it was a good run, though.

kurt schwitterz, Wednesday, 8 March 2017 22:14 (two months ago) Permalink

Patton: “We could have probably squeezed out a couple more records but the collective personality of this group became so dysfunctional, this band was poisoned by one person's petty jealousy and insecurity, and it led us to a slow, unnatural death. And I'm at peace with that, because I know I tried all I could.”

kurt schwitterz, Wednesday, 8 March 2017 22:18 (two months ago) Permalink

To be honest I would not know whose side to take on that without more inside knowledge - they both say more or less the same thing about the other in different ways (Trey somewhat more magnaminously, granted).
