Deciding to expunge the the few remnants they had of their 'funk' repertoire, 'King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime' marked the recolonisation and reconstruction of Faith No More and they delved deeper into heavy metal, hard rock and even lounge music. There is no better example of their newfound rolling aggression than on tracks such as "The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies", "Ugly In The Morning" and "Digging The Grave", all of which features such forceful blasts of punk energy and screaming. I also believe that when you listen to tracks like "Get Out", "Ricochet" and "Cuckoo For Caca" you can hear the very blueprints of nu-metal being drawn up. But it isn't always heavy; you get the latin tinge of 'Caralho Veador' and such superb ballads like "Take This Bottle" and "Just A Man". The sheer diversity of genres and tempos defies expectations with such wit and panache. 'King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime' completely reorientates your musical landscapes which will completely change your way of thinking about music forever.
