After hearing this for the first time, i was really disappointed. See - the first thing that i heard by FNM was "King For A Day..." and this one didn't sound much like it. But that's exactly the point - none of their albums really sound similar to each other. "King..." was more chaotic, while "Angel Dust" was the type of album which was supposed to provide "Epic #2" (cover of "I'm Easy" written around 1992 came very close, but its not included here), but didn't. In a retrospect, it pissed off a lot of people, since it sounded nothing like "The Real Thing" and had less emphasis on rap and more on rock. This one features plenty of heavy songs (Jizzlobber, Smaller & Smaller, Malpractice, Caffeine) as well slow and mid-tempo rock stuff (Everything's Ruined, Midlife Crisis, Kindergarten, RV). Not to say that there are no missteps (i don't see much point to an instrumental Midnight Cowboy at the end and some of the heavier songs don't sound too exciting). But, all in all, this is a good example of how FNM were able to create an album in a style different from the previous one and really take it to a next level, even while losing mainstream popularity and some fans in the process.
