Faith No More's 2nd album with Mike Patton behind the microphone was the album that truly set their place in the pantheon of rock history. I love all the bands albums (barring the early years with Chuck Mosely) but this album really sums the band's penchance for weirdness amongst their great songwriting sensibilities.
There's quite a variation of sounds in this album, with a huge range of influences and styles. 'Caffeine' feels somewhat bi-polar, lulling you into a false sense of security before blasting you with untempered rage, 'Mid-life Crisis' was somewhat of a brooding radio hit for the band (though, not quite as much as their cover of the Commodore's 'Easy' - which is also featured here). 'Be Agressive' is a funky, cheerleader lead(!) song and 'A Small Victory' has a authentic oriental feel thanks to Roddy Bottum's great keyboard work.
Well worth looking into for fans of dark, heavy rock. I highly recommend!
