      Disadvantages

      Compilation (2006).

      I'm not fond of best-of or greatest hits collections, as I always prefer to hear songs in their original album context to gain a more accurate impression of the band's quality, but this cobbling together of much of Faith No More's finest material can't really be argued with, though everyone who listens will inevitably have a couple of bones to pick.

      The distribution is uneven, which makes sense considering the band had its stronger and weaker albums. The first three songs make for a strong opening, repeating the opening trilogy of the band's classic album 'The Real Thing,' led by Jim Martin's great heavy metal guitars, Mike Patton's distinctive whine and Roddy Bottum's majestic keyboards, and after this the tracklist turns towards the band's more experimental years with great picks from the 'Angel Dust' and 'King for a Day' albums.

      I could easily over-use the word 'classic' here, but many of these songs are staples of nineties rock. The collection takes a slight downturn towards the end as it focuses more squarely on the band's softer side, but this is perhaps necessary given the energetic sprawling of the first half. Fans of the band's early material will be disappointed as it's hardly given any representation whatsoever, and the collection also excludes the band's more extreme experiments, but for newcomers and those looking for an easy and convenient way to own most of the band's hits, this can't really be faulted.
