Phil Posted May 12, 2015 Share Posted May 12, 2015 What makes Sol Invictus, Faith No More's first album in 18 years, so extraordinary is not only how comfortably it fits into the band's discography, but also how economical it is. So many veteran bands overcompensate on record, but Sol Invictus clocks in at a sharp 39 minutes. It's lean and to the point, taking listeners deep into Faith No More's twisted world, and it doesn't let up. Its playfulness and aggression intermingle to the point where it's hard to tell the two approaches apart. For all the strengths of the album's first two singles, the gleefully profane "Mother******" and the dramatic "Superhero," Sol Invictus' rewards are even richer the more you delve into the deeper cuts. http://www.npr.org/2015/05/10/404672919/first-listen-faith-no-more-sol-invictus#playlist -- You can stream the entire thing at the link above! It's so good. Quintessentially Faith No More. Favorite tracks thus far are definitely "Matador", "Motherfucker" (fuck censorship), the first single track "Superhero" that's been out a while and "Sunny Side Up".
