Faith No More's 1997 release Album of the Year featured the talents of another new guitarist, Jon Hudson, who replaced Dean Menta Menta only toured with the group in support of King for a Day before being dismissed. Like King for a Day, Album is more straightforward musically than past releases and remains one of FNM's most focused and concise works. Recorded in bassist Billy Gould's home studio, Album of the Year would turn out to be their last studio recording before splitting up in 1997.

Like King for a Day, Album is more straightforward musically than past releases and remains one of FNM's most focused and concise works. Recorded in bassist Billy Gould's home studio, Album of the Year would turn out to be their last studio recording before splitting up in 1997. A trio of outstanding tracks -- "Stripsearch," "Last Cup of Sorrow," and "Ashes to Ashes" -- blend hard rock and pop melodicism the way only FNM can, while "Helpless" is an unpredictable composition that alternates between heavy guitar riffing and Mike Patton's tempered vocals. The explosive album opener, "Collision," and "Naked in Front of the Computer" show that the band can still compose prime heavy rockers, while other musical forms were included as well the romantic ballad "She Loves Me Not," the evil boogie of "Home Sick Home," and the Middle Eastern sounds of "Mouth to Mouth". For the gripping album closer, "Pristina," the '90s turmoil in Yugoslavia is used as a backdrop for a tale of lovers being separated due to war. Album of the Year was a fitting way for one of alt-rock's most influential and important bands to end its career.

    Great Last CD

    Every song on this CD is good. "Stripsearch", "Helpless", "Ashes to Ashes", and "She Loves Me Not" are the best. Go buy it!

    Helpless album!

    Faith No More's ALbum of the Year was disappointment! If somebody said that this is the best album of the year I said he's funny! Some good tracks you can find: Collision (much energy), Stripsearch (beautiful, slow song), Last Cup of Sorrow (strange song, definitely they have made own style), Ashes to Ashes (real hard rock song!!). But 'naked in front of the computer, mouth to mouth, got that feeling, pristina don't make impression to me!
