Notes:
Angel Dust was released as a follow up to The Real Thing in June 1992.

The first Japanese edition contains the bonus track "As The Worm Turns".

The South Korean edition was stripped from 13 tracks to 10 tracks, omitting the tracks "Caffeine", "RV" and "Crack Hitler".

On 29th December 1992 Faith No More released "I'm Easy / Be Aggressive" as a single in Europe. Due to its success they repackaged the album to include "Easy" in most markets on 29th January 1993, this did not include North American territories.

Two versions of the song were recorded and both are found on different versions of the repackaged version of Angel Dust based on the label which released the album. The first version of "Easy" opens with the dialogue "turn the lights out baby" and "this one's for the ladies in the house". This version was used on all London Records / Slash Records releases of the album in the UK and Europe, South America and Australia (828 401-2, 3984 28200 2 and POCD-1111).

The second version of the track omits the dialogue and contains heavy synth in the intro for the song. This version features on Liberation / Slash Records releases of the album found in Australia. (D30953 and TVD93378 / RMD93378). This second version was used on the German single of I'm Easy by London Records / Slash Records / Metronome and was referred to as "I'm Easy Cooler Version". It was also used for the US and Canada's singles "Easy" and "Songs To Make Love To" on Slash Records / Reprise Records. "Easy" was never added to the US and Canadian versions of Angel Dust.

The 1993 repackaged Japanese edition contains both the bonus track "As The Worm Turns" and "Easy".

In 2003 Kerrang Magazine listed the 50 most influential albums of all time. Angel Dust was number 1.

In 2008, the album was remastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs and released on double 180gram vinyl and gold CD.

In 2013, the album was reissued by Music On Vinyl on both limited colored and standard black double vinyl with gatefold sleeve.

In 2015, the album was reissued by Slash on double vinyl and CD deluxe remastered editions with extra tracks.

So, Is this the best version out there? And how it compares to the MOV version or even to the MFSL?

1) Well, the MOV was indeed sourced from the original tapes (transferred to hi-rez digital [confirmed by MOV, it was a 96/24 AD transfer] as you can see a picture of the actual 2" tapes in the inside of the sleeves), and honestly, that version is absolutely flawless sonically. Super clean (barely can hear any surface noise), the overall mix is well balanced, but somehow - just slightly - lacks the energy of the 1st UK press. I might even say that the MOV version sounds much clearer (more transparent maybe) than the 1st UK press, as they managed to get even the slightest little details out of that very old tape and transfered it to a lathe. But still, it is not how Matt Wallace and the band had imagined this record to sound in 1992. This record should sound 'hot', energetic and raw, with a little spark of compression in the mids/highs.

2) The MFSL sounds very hi-fi, but absolutely lacks any compression that was on the original releases. Also, it goes for such high prices on Discogs/eBay that there's literally no reason to go for that version instead of getting a clean 1st UK copy. Here's what Matt Wallace thinks about the MFSL version (from an interview fans did with him in 2012):

"From my perspective, as co-producer, engineer, and mixer, I was, in my own way, really distancing myself from the sonics of TRT as I felt that it was thin, over compressed, and had too much high end (although this all worked in our favor on radio and MTV). So, I endeavored to try and create a much fuller, more natural sounding record. Most noticeable is the fact that AD was recorded and mixed with very, very little compression and had a much healthier bottom end/low frequency content. We did, during mastering, add back in a good amount of stereo buss compression which was my intention all along. Mobile Fidelity Labs did release a special edition a couple of years ago wherein they used our source master 2 track, stereo tapes to create a version that had very little stereo buss compression. It sounds more 'hi fi' and/or 'professional' but, unfortunately, isn't the original intention of how we wanted that record to sound."

So to answer the question: to my ears, 1st UK press is the 'best' version out there, even if it is a bit flawed by not having all the tracks recorded for the album (and also containing that another 45RPM disc which is kind of odd). Do you miss anything by not having this and owning only the MOV version? Not at all. I think the MOV is just great (spread out to four sides instead of two, comes with poly sleeves, and also the printing is far better than any originals), and considering the price (like 25-30 EUR'S) it's really a steal and you should go for it - unless you're not a super big fan who wants to have the best and the 'truest' version out there that reflects the vision of the band. So, if you're looking for a version thats the closest to how the band intended 'AD' to sound, this is the version to own.

I bought an original pressing on LP when this came out in ‘92 and it was crackly as anything.

Just got this and man I wish all reissues were this good. MOV really ticked every single box from the packaging to the thick, flat vinyl to the sound, OMG the sound. What a soundstage. Really brings Roddy Bottum's keyboards and sound effects out of the murk. Ronipop speaks the truth - there is more midrange action than the remastered CD reissue from I think 2013? - I listened after to compare. Midrange seemed a little flat after listening to this pressing. If you're a fan of this one of a kind masterpiece, & want it on vinyl, buy this one.

This was bought from Amazon on May 14, 2020, for those interested. It is a flawless pressing, so I would imagine it's no different in sound from the other MOV pressings.

Sounds like garbage and has WAY too much audio mashed onto each side (25 minutes / 30 minutes) and you can hear it. The Mobile Fidelity pressing is definitely the way to go and worth the money.

Sounds better than the cd. More dynamics and air, while the cd sounds a bit more compressed. Almost identical to the original EU version of the vinyl as well. The MOV has a bit more mid to the EQ than the 1992 version that opens it more up. MOV knows how to make quality pressings from the best sources available. Only hatch here is that the version of Easy is the orchestrated one. The cd has the better version of it. That makes me keep both.

I second what everyone has been saying. MOV really knocked it out of the park with this one. Super quiet vinyl... not a click, pop, or tick to be heard. And the mastering is superb.

Sold my previous 2015 Slash/Rhino European reissue which sounded dull and compressed. Bought this MOV pressing and it sounds amazing, highly recommended. YES!

Add me to the list of happy owners. MOV did once again a great job.
The records are quiet, flat and heavy.
Artwork is thick and nice (also a bit too glossy for my taste).
And the music sounds very good, loud but not fatiguing at all.
A must-buy!
