Failure is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles that was active from 1990 to 1997 and from 2014 onwards. They are often compared to other alternative rock bands from that time that were similarly labeled as "alternative", such as Nirvana and Soundgarden, but are distinguished by their meticulous attention to textural sonic detail, inventive use of guitar effects and signal processing, and the overall expansive sound design of their later albums.

Failure's 1996 space-rock masterpiece, Fantastic Planet, didn't receive considerable recognition at the time, but certainly has since. Meticulously self-produced in a ng studio, the result sported an innovative sound with a palpable sense of the tinkering behind it. Layered, moody dissonance was balanced brilliantly by dynamic melody and rhythm. The Heart is a Monster doesn't quite leave the impression mid-'90s Failure did, but despite less experimental approach and cleaner digital production, it's still a compelling listen.
The Heart Is a Monster. Obscure Nineties alt-rockers prove they deserve their cult. Since their breakup in the late Nineties, Clinton-era alt-rockers Failure have gone from overlooked coulda-beens to cult heroes, numbering Tool and Paramore among their admirers. The band’s first album in 19 years justifies their rep. Spacey and sprawling yet packing plenty of guitar muscle, The Heart Is a Monster picks up where 1996’s Fantastic Planet left off (literally: Both albums contain several numbered Segue tracks).

The mood of FP has been (mostly) preserved, but as others have noted, its darker, ie if FP was the kaleidoscope of brilliance brought on by the opiate binge, THIAM finds that brilliance channeled into the harsh aftermath of addiction. time to hear it all over again!
Failure arrived in the early-to-mid-'90s as one of the more promising bands in rock, but after recording their breakout 1996 album Fantastic Planet, the group members went their separate ways. Now, nearly two decades later, the band is set to return with a new disc titled The Heart Is a Monster. The trio will release the album on June 30 via INgrooves Music Group's INresidence division. Frontman Ken Andrews states, "Trying to follow up Fantastic Planet was a bit daunting
there is none more exciting than Failure. With The Heart Is A Monster, their first new LP in 19 years, the band steps right back into their sonic rock groove which made their 1996 Fantastic Planet an indie classic. From its over an hour running time, meticulous song structures and soaring vocals from Ken Andrews there is nothing on The Heart Is A Monster which sounds out of place, as it feels like the correct natural progression for the band in 2015
