To sum up, this is The Real Thing (Original Mix) - Fort Arkansas - The Real Thing Faith No More's most accessible release with Patton, The Real Thing (Original Mix) - Fort Arkansas - The Real Thing none the worse for it, as the songs are very consistent throughout and there are no real weak ones. It's brought down by Patton's often grating performance and the fact that there isn't much variation compared to what they'd later do, but overall I'd nominate it as Faith No More's best release, and every fan of alternative metal owes it to themselves to get it just to hear what started it all.
The Real Thing (Original Mix) - Fort Arkansas - The Real Thing it is, though, is nine tracks of pure genius. I like how the guitar is worked out throughout the album, as it is not always the main focal point.
It often serves as a layered filler, with a lot of solo work. The guitar is pushed into the background to serve as a special effect. Maybe ambience? I think the bass is very, very important to Faith No More. The bass work stands out in every track, which I love. The way the guitar and bass bends around the drum work is quite nice as well. Everything Mike "Puffy" Bordin does back there never stands out in a negative aspect. Alright, now to Mike Patton. Why is there so much hate for his vocals?
His voice might be light but he packs a powerful punch. People can listen to falsettos see Judas Priest, King Diamondgutturals see Devourmentand raspy screams see Darkthrone, various black metal bands. Come on people, experiment a little. After having this album for a very long time, I decided to write down my thoughts on it. Holy crap this is horrible. Sure, there is the odd tid bit of metalness Lets Wait Awhile - Janet Jackson - Control and there, but if Faith No More were to be added to the archives based purely off this album, they would have been rejected.
I hope to god that their The Real Thing (Original Mix) - Fort Arkansas - The Real Thing records where far more metal then this, if not, there is some heavy hypocrisy in the house The guitar Best Thing I Never Had - Beyoncé - Best Thing I Never Had this is pretty crap, if I do say so myself.
It is generally your funky, generic alternative rock riffs, down tuned. No solos or anything remotely impressive, typical of alternative rock. The bass work is actually the only saving grace on this album. Seeing as this band is influenced by rap and funk more than anything else, this is quite an important feature and thus they needed some proper work. The drumming is okay; it only really fills in for what is necessary but the fact that he is drumming in funk style gets points as it is rhythmically complicated.
The vocals. Find a cat, hold its nose, and then pull its tail really hard so it yells out a loud, nasal noise. The bassist and drummer are the only redeeming factors in this band and in all honesty they should have hired better musicians then the two jokers that is their melodic section. Just so you know I have no idea what sort of musical interest you have to possess to actually like this as it is just pig squeal. Hell, I love 70s funk George Clinton ftw!
Alternative metal. I didn't like it before, Holding On To Life - Little Jimmy Dickens - Country Music Hall Of Fame despise it even more now.
Seeing Faith No More here on the archives, with high reviews, somehow gave me hope Don't make the mistake I did. This is alternative metal at its most horrific, blasphemous best. Rapping vocals, lame riffs, and a whiny clean voice. Sounds good, doesn't it? Hearing the opening to "From Out of Nowhere" gave me a bit of hope. A decent riff, interesting keyboards, could this be it?!
Alternative metal's creators actually did it right? Whiny, terrible clean vocals enter quickly, ruining what could have been good. The synth stays prevalent, but too much so. Never is it used to the effect of bands like Finntroll for great leads, or Mirrorthrone for symphonic goodness.
It is used for cheesy, simple, synthy sounds no other way to describe it. In all, the synths here would fit in snugly on a rap album. The guitar does what most would probably refer to as "tough guy riffing". Simple, distorted power chords, arranged for the sole purpose of adding "heaviness". Nothing experimental or avant-garde about it. I can't fault this much for production. Everything here is fairly clear, including the bass, which is rare, so Harmonium Hard Mix - Melog - Harmonium (File) points are scored for that.
Another thing that warrants a few points is the fact that the bass actually seems to be doing something at most times. This IS alternative metal at its high or low. Metal with a strong hip hop The Real Thing (Original Mix) - Fort Arkansas - The Real Thing.
So, let me break this down simply: Decent at times, but usually weak riffs. Vocals that alternate between rapping terrible rapping at that and a whiny sounding clean voice. Drumming that is simplistic and does nothing more than keep the beat. And keyboards that are worthy of rap. My advice to the average metalhead- avoid this. If track one doesn't immediately turn you off with the cheesy synth and whined vocals, track two will, with its dreadful combination of the aforementioned vocals and rapping.
