Overview

Compiled in preparation for Faith No More's 2009 reunion tour, Rhino slapped together The Very Best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection, yet another Faith No More greatest-hits collection that doesn't quite hit the mark. This time, the material is divvied between two discs: a disc of their 18 best tracks and a second disc of B-sides and rarities. The main problem here is that the set doesn't seem aimed at any particular audience. The B-sides are targeted to hardcore fans who surely own the songs on the first disc already, and any newcomers will probably be scared away by the severity of the rarities. If you are indeed new to the Faith No More world, your best bet is to pick up the band's first two albums with Mike Patton, (The Real Thing and Angel Dust) for a starting point. For those newcomers looking for a loose chronological history of the group, with songs by the first vocalist Chuck Mosley and a spattering of covers (which are usually great), the Platinum Collection, This Is It: The Best of Faith No More, and Who Cares a Lot: Greatest Hits provide a slightly better overview at a more affordable price.
