~ Release group by Faith No More

Wikipedia

The Real Thing is the third studio album by the American rock band Faith No More. It was first released through Slash Records on June 20, 1989. It was the first major release by the band not to feature vocalist Chuck Mosley. Instead, the album featured Mike Patton from the experimental/funk band Mr. Bungle. On this album, Faith No More continued to advance their sound range, combining thrash metal, funk, hip hop, progressive metal, synthpop, carousel music and hard rock, along with what has been described as "a black sense of humor".

On March 2, 2015 a deluxe edition containing previous unreleased tracks was released via Rhino Records/Warner.
