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.
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.
