Read the full story of how FNM created this album in our 25th anniversary article, ANGEL DUST 25 | MAKING THE ALBUM.

'This is tightly constructed noise on the grand scale that bellies its simple metal calling. It's loud, it's aggressive and, like any rock record worth its salt, it excites at the most instinctive level. Their time has surely come.' - Q Magazine

'Imagine "Never Mind The Bollocks", produced by Brian May, if Steve Jones had grown up on Sabbath and King Crimson rather than The Faces. Pomp rock motored by punk disgust. Symphonic bombast, scrofulous with detail. Visionary venom, misanthropic majesty, grotesque grandeur Aesthetically and philosophically, "Angel Dust" is profoundly, putridly offensive, but I keep coming back to it, like a scab.' - Melody Maker

  1. I was 15 and recovering from a serious motorbike accident when Angel dust came out my first day upright I wheelchaird my way out of hospital to the nearest music store to but the album. Combined with copious amounts of pain meds and a fair variety of recreational substances this album helped me through my recovery and teen angst ridden years that followed. Thanks for the soundtrack to some difficult years
