King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This album doesn't sound anything like FNM's other albums, but that is a good thing. The presence of Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance is felt on this album, as are many more Bungle influences, especially on Star A.D and Caralho Voador. Patton reaches new cacophonic heights, screaming and gurgling (see Ugly in the Morning) and soulfully crooning (see Evidence). He shows of a diversity seldom seen in music. Billy Gould is excellent on bass and Mike Bordin does some challenging and diverse drumming. The keyboards aren't around as much on this album as they were on previous releases. All in all, an excellent album. My personal favorite tracks are Digging the Grave, the Gentle Art of Making Enemies, Cuckoo for Caca, Ricochet, and Just a Man.
This album has it good sides and bad sides: It is very heavy rock but some tracks are too weird: Star A.D., Cralho Voador, Take this Bottle. They are too slow tracks for this album. This is very rough album! The best tracks are definitely slow tracks Evidence and Just a Man. Fast Tracks, The gentle Art of Making Enemies, Digging the Grave, Get Out, WHat a Day, Ugly in the Morning are good live songs!
