AllMusic Review by

Faith No More's 1992 homnevideo, Video Croissant, is a collection of all of the band's promo videos from 1988-'92. The tracklisting in different countries varies slightly (for instance, the rare clip for "Everything's Ruined" is only included on copies outside the U.S., while "Easy" is featured on only a select few), but for the most part, it's the same. The group has been responsible for some of the early-90's most imaginative clips, such as the fish-flopping finale of "Epic," the war-based "A Small Victory," and the disturbing imagery of "Midlife Crisis." You'll also find a few clips with FNM's original vocalist, Chuck Moseley (88's "We Care A Lot" and "Anne's Song"), the never-before-seen "Surprise! You're Dead!," the colorful "Falling To Pieces," and a great performance of "Caffeine," taped live on the defunct U.S. show Hanging With MTV. Between the videos are short (and often humorous) clips, such as strange shots of the band early on, guitarist Jim Martin bungee-jumping, and interviews.
