Saturday Night Album Rock - Angel Dust - Faith No More

Angel Dust is the fourth studio album by American rock band Faith No More, released on June 8, 1992, by Slash and Reprise Records. It is the follow-up to 1989's highly successful The Real Thing, and was the band's final album to feature guitarist Jim Martin. It was also the first album where vocalist Mike Patton had any substantial influence on the band's music,[4][5] having been hired after the other band members had written and recorded everything for The Real Thing except vocals and most of the lyrics.[6][7][8] The band stated that they wanted to move away from the funk metal style of their prior releases, towards a more "theatrical" sound.[9]

Angel Dust is Faith No More's best-selling album to date, having sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide. It also debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200, making it the band's only top-ten album in the United States.


An often overlooked album...one of the great albums to play on vinyl in my humble opinion. Also great on a good set of headphones.

1. A tour-de-force if there ever was one ... one of the greatest alt-rock 90's albums for sure (nt)
