i was introduced to mr. bungle via one of my friends when i was about 15 or 16 - I'm 26 now, and this is still one of my most favoritist albums of all time. This was Mr. Bungle's first major release, but it's incredibly refined b/c of years of producing their own albums and music (OU818, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, etc). It took me no time at all to connect with this album, but it took many more of my friends years to appreciate this fine work. This album incorporates about every form of music possible, in each track, so if you don't like lots of changeups, don't bother - if on the other hand, you live for the eclectic flair (and you already like forms of music such as metal, funk, samba, jazz, etc.), then this album's for you.
