NME were never Faith No More’s greatest fans back on the day but they have given Sol Invictus an 8/10 review in their latest issue.


The UK music weekly only affords the album a small corner in its review section and the review itself is a little focused on the past. But they do say:

“With their first album in 18 years, the San Francisco band have managed a rare trick – Sol Invictus sounds like they’ve never been away. From the blusey title track to Motherfucker’s frenzied talk of smallpox blankets and cattle-brained conformity, the absence of original guitarist Jim Martin is soon overshadowed by just how focused this record is.”
