Faith No More – Sol Invictus (2015)

When Sol Invictus came out I struggled to accept it as a canonical FNM record, purely because it sounded so much like ‘X’ Mike Patton project, rather than a record from a band that I have come to know and love. But, I realised eventually (forgive me), that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? When has FNM ever done a record that wasn’t different from the last?

I absolutely loved the lead single for this album (the infinitely-marketable “Motherfucker”) but it took me a while (see above) to get into the rest, but this is a solid FNM record as any of the classic stuff.

I wonder if they’ll do any more?

Cheers!
