Format: Audio CD
For the unitiated, get ready. You've never heard anything in your life like Mr. Bungle. Featuring the powerful pipes of Mike Patton, Bungle was his pre-Faith No More band which he admirably kept going through the 90's before calling it a day. This album, produced by John Zorn and completely different than anything Bungle has done since, is a challenging first listen for the musically tame. However it is also extremely rewarding and can only do good in expanding your musical vocabulary. It also has lots of X-rated, adult only lyrics that will keep you laughing and/or disgusted all the way through. See: "Squeeze Me Macaroni" (a song about having sex with food) or "The Girls of Porn" (subject matter: obvious).

Mr. Bungle squeezes multiple genres into single songs, often switching gears multiple times within a minute. Careening joyfully from breakneck-speed horn-laden funk, to death metal guitar with doo-woop vocals, to circus music and beyond, this is not for the timid. This is only for the open minded. This is for the bored, those who can no longer handle the same damn songs on the radio all the time, the same keys, chords, time changes and instrumentation. And if you're a Mike Patton fan already, but somehow missed this, prepare to have your mind blown.

Production by Zorn is perfect. How he managed to compress all these instruments, samples, and voices together into coherant songs is nothing short of genius. The sound is gloriously crisp. This is Mr. Bungle's magnum opus.

Highlights:
"Quote Unquote" (formerley known as "Travolta" on early pressings)
"Squeeze Me Macaroni"
"The Girls Of Porn"
"My A@@ Is On Fire"
"Stubb (A Dub)"

But really this entire album flows, and cannot really be broken down into songs.

I'll add my glowing recommendation to the pile. This album is truly a marvel. When I first heard it in high school, it changed my whole perception of what a record could be. This music is so well conceived and so well realized. The production is an integral part of the compositions. John Zorn produced the album and he definitely deserves a lot of credit for its clarity of vision and cohesion. The whole record hangs together as one piece of art. I understand where the "heavy metal circus music" moniker comes from, I just don't think it quite does the music justice. There is a very prevelant theme of amorality and irreverance - a kind of R. Crumb-like nightmare-of-America kind of thing. Not just in the lyrical content, but in the musical content as well. You can hear the violence along side the flipancy in songs like "Stubb a Dubb" and "Love is a Fist" and "Dead Goon." No subject is sacred.
All of this thematic theorizing is, of course, a bunch of subjective horse feces. This music is incredible. They probably think they have outgrown it and maybe they have, but I sure haven't. In my opinion, Mr. Bungle's three records get successively better, so if you like this one, listen to others as well. Just don't expect to hear more of the same thing. I have made the mistake of trying to describe this music before. I always fail miserably. You will just have to give it a listen.
"Mr. Bungle" came out in 91'. Remember that while you are listening to it. An underground classic.

The first time I bought this CD I was sixteen. I had read many of the reviews on this site and I already had California, so I thought it was about time to give the first Bungle album a whirl. I bought it late one afternoon and eagerly rushed home to put it on. I remember sitting in my room, listening to it from start to finish. My memories of that evening are hazy, but I remember that by the time I got to the 'death sequence' in Dead Goon, I actually felt physically ill. The song ended, only to have a bizarre collage of nostalgic music swell up again to finish the album. To me this was the final insult. I had just spent $40 on this import CD which had turned out to be the most awful thing I had ever heard. First thing the next morning, I returned the CD (getting only half store credit). This is the only time I have disliked an album so strongly that I have taken it back.
Two years later, I started thinking about the album again. I could barely remember how any of the songs went, and became curious about this CD that had led me to have such a strong reaction. I downloaded the entire album (which I apologise for, guys) and slowly became addicted to every single song. A week later, I bought the album again and listened to it non-stop for nearly three months. It is now one of my favourite albums of all time.
I guess the point of my (long-winded) story is that this is an album which provokes some pretty extreme reactions. My advice to anyone who is thinking about buying this album is: give it plenty of time. At first I found the thematic content and samples a little hard to deal with, but after time I became to love the music itself so much that I forgot about those things.

Mr Bungle is an album that _really_ is like no other. Heres a brief attempt at translating the music into words. Imagine entering a dark alley on your journey home one night only to be accosted by two homicidal clowns with accordions singing Billy Idol's entire back catalogue, and rhythmically sharpening their knives. You turn to flee, only to be transported to the kind of carnival that only exists in your nightmares, in which a group of schizophrenic and dangerous eggs tie you to a carousel and demand you name all your childhood pets in order of their demise, giving time place and cause of death. Upon your inevitable failure, all your pornographic fantasies simultaneously come true, causing all the problems that might imply. And so on.
More a kind of twisted musical expeiment than an album, Mr Bungle seem to wish to cause their listeners as much trouble as possible. They certainly dont compromise here, as they run through every style and genre imgainble, and tread themes other band wouldnt touch in their dreams.
This album cries out to be bought if you like a musical challenge. Its dangerous in there though, so bring patience, impartiality, cunning and plenty of balloons.
I hope you enjoy this incredible record.
