AllMusic Review by

The idiosyncratic San Francisco outfit gets a well-deserved overview in this comprehensive retrospective, which spans "We Care a Lot," from their sophomore full-length, INTRODUCE YOURSELF, and "Ashes to Ashes" from their final ALBUM OF THE YEAR. One of the most musically adventurous 1980s independent bands, Faith No More brightened the pre-grunge era with slices of raw rock like their version of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" and the pomp-and-circumstance rap of "Epic." Their eclectic '90s output is represented here by cuts like the cheerleader funk-metal of "Be Aggressive" and the brooding R&B of KING FOR A DAY's "Evidence."
