Faith No More

The 90s Crossover throne is in firm hands: Faith No More are viewed as the founding fathers of the genre. They have invented it alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers and pushed it into higher spheres. Their album "The Real Thing" was something completely new when it came out, a mixture of Pop, Hard Rock, Metal, Funk and Psychedelic. This eclectic combination exploded (in a good way, of course) in people's ears, and not least thanks to singer Mike Patton, the record left an indelible mark.

In 1992, "Angel Dust" was a veritable atom bomb of an album. It topped everything we thought we knew about Crossover so far. The group's blend of very different musical styles became even weirder, the material more complex yet still easier to grasp - an incredible balancing act that stood the test of time. No doubt, "Angel Dust" is a definite Crossover masterpiece. With a middle finger salute, Faith No More released more records like "King For A Day ... Fool For A Lifetime" and "Album Of The Year", but what shall we say? Their take on various musical genres remained explosive - impressive stuff of unbelievably high quality.
