Here are some of the latest reviews of the We Care a Lot deluxe band issue which was released today.
Revisiting songs like “Why Do You Bother,” “The Jungle,” and “As the Worm Turns” (one of my personal favorite FNM songs) plus hearing the extra stuff for the first time was well worth the listen. Definitely check it out if the extent of your FNM knowledge stops at “Epic”; these guys have so much more to offer than just that.
Even today it remains an outsider album, a kind of mutant take on hard rock. which flirts with experimentation and dance (Arabian Disco). Fans who only know their more recent catalogue might be in for a surprise.
Same as above – same review by Graham Reid but gets the Recommended Reissue tag
While We Care A Lot can’t match the heights Faith No More reached with Mike Patton at the helm, it’s an important time capsule showing their early potential, and a must-have release for completists wanting to hear the early building blocks of the band’s inimitable, genre-defying sound.
“We Care A Lot” was and is, of course, a pretty great album. It was and is a great piece of music, it was wild, bold, crazy, full of rough edges and to this day that’s why it is quite unique.
