Leading metal and rock website Blabbermouth has given Faith No More’s Sol Invictus a 10/10 review.
The review is an encomium and here’s the choice cuts:
“These guys have the benefit of road wear and multiple side venues (Mike Patton, especially) to give them a new perspective. Better yet, they have unrestricted freedom, and this is why “Sol Invictus” is not just a mere reunion album. It’s fucking incredible.”
“”Cone of Shame” is one of the most experimental pieces FAITH NO MORE’s yet written, and the payoff for the skulking weirdness leading off the track is another explosion of rock excellence.”
“Mini-epic “Matador” likely to go down as one of the band’s finest hours and certainly the most ambitious song FAITH NO MORE’s ever written.”
