FAITH NO MORE / We Care A Lot [1985]

After ditching Courtney Love, California alt. rock band Faith No More went from a really shitty singer to just a shitty singer (Chuck Mosley) for the recording of their 1985 full-length debut We Care A Lot.
Blending metal and synthy dance music with a California punk rock attitude, early FNM showed signs of being a promising music act that would stand apart from the rest.  It's not just Mosley's snotty, monotonous vocals that hold the record back but the rest of the band haven't quite refined their writing skills just yet making for plenty of sloppy patches.
