Video technology has sure come a long way. All you need to do is view the collection of Faith No More's videos, most of which were made earlier this decade, to prove that point. Yet, there are some bright spots here, like the uncharacteristically high-budget clip for "A Small Victory" and a mock short for "Falling to Pieces." Yet, if someone's going to collect your videos, uh, why did they put like the worst ones first? The video for "Midlife Crisis" is one of those smoke and mirror monstrosities, all orange and blue light, a big old cross as the backdrop with a guy being drawn and quartered for the "storyline." And there's more: There are 12 more videos featuring rats ("Epic"), men in (bad) drag ("Easy"), Jennifer Jason Leigh ("Last Cup of Sorrow") and four previously unreleased performances, which can't be all bad. Or can they? I'll clarify: Loved the band, hated the videos.
