King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime (1995)

EW's GRADE
C-

Details Lead Performance: Faith No More

The title of this abrasive, disjointed, and overwrought album may be more apt than the band intended. When they wax subtle, their virtuosic musicianship seems to get in the way, and when they rock out, their angst sounds calculated. The result: archaic progressive-rock fusion, oddly out of step with the times.
