Faith No More chronology

We Care a Lot is the debut studio album by American rock band Faith No More, originally released in 1985 and distributed through San Francisco-based label Mordam Records. On the original vinyl release, the band is credited as "Faith. No More" on the album's liner notes, back cover, and on the record itself.

Album information

The title track "We Care a Lot" was later rerecorded (for their follow-up album Introduce Yourself) and released as their first single. This later version of the song was incorrectly listed as the original and the album Introduce Yourself was also listed as the début in the sleeve notes for some subsequent releases, such as the 1998 compilation Who Cares a Lot?. "We Care A Lot" is available in two live recordings with Mike Patton on vocals- one on the live album "Live At The Brixton Academy" and another on the "I'm Easy/Be Aggressive" CD1 Single.

The band is known to have re-recorded only one other song in the studio from We Care a Lot: the eighth track "As the Worm Turns" was recorded with Mike Patton on vocals during the Angel Dust sessions. However, a live recording of "Mark Bowen" with Mike Patton on vocals appears on the "I'm Easy/Be Aggressive" CD2 single, as well as a memorable performance at Download festival in 2009.

"We Care a Lot" is also used as the theme song for the Discovery Channel's show Dirty Jobs, hosted by Mike Rowe.

Production

The band initially started recording the album without backing from a record label and, after pooling their money, recorded five songs. This gained the attention of Ruth Schwartz (who was then forming the independent label Mordam Records) under which the band (after receiving the finances to do so) finished and released the album; it was the first official release for both the band and the label.[1]

Release history

While released on vinyl and cassette in 1985, this album would not be released to buy as a CD until 1995 in Australia (on Mushroom Records) as a pink disc for the first pressing, and black disc for the second, to coincide with the tour for their fifth studio album King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime, released that year. In 1996 it was reissued on CD, vinyl and cassette in the UK and Japan with slightly modified artwork, one being a purple disc.

Critical reception

The album received mixed but favourable reviews. Select magazine, while also mentioning the roughness of production, said that the music is inexorable and "a lustful marriage of mutoid metal and dancefloor verve that owed nothing to anybody".[9] Allmusic made repeated reference to the absence of future front man Mike Patton and criticized Chuck Mosley's vocals, calling him "often off-key, fairly monotonous, and colorless", but credited the album for having "lots of attitude" comparing it to early Public Image Ltd works.[8]
