5.0 out of 5 stars An Ugly/Beautiful Masterpiece April 16 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bungle Rocks!! July 15 2004
By Patty G
Format:Audio CD
Mike Patton is a God, and anyone who disagrees has already been brainwashed by mainstream media. This album is over a decade old and it is still the best damn thing in my collection, with Fantomas a very close runner up. It only gets five stars because I can't give 27. Mr. Bungle forever!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I will never get tired of this record. Never! June 25 2004
By stu
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the album that changed my life April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An acquired taste April 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

While I believe this is a fantastic album (for its time)...
...it certainly pales in comparison to Disco Volante and California which are the bands 'masterpieces'... Read more
