4 stars There's only a few albums that always works; whatever mood you're in. This is one of those albums. The unquestionable joy it expresses when you uplifted. And the wierdness and variety of feelings, when you feel blue.

The album kicks of with seaguls and the flowing of water which is Sweet Charity. A perfect example of an intriging introduction. And the ending of the record, the freaked out soundscape that fades out Goodbye Sober day is antoher example of the musical talent and composingskill of this band (by which i mean Mike Patton).

I usually look at records as a whole, and this is no exeption. Though it doesn't have a single song like the other, the variety of styles is in every aspect admireable. In my consideration there isn't a single weak track on the album. At some points the songs has some dull moments, prehaps. But! as a whole it is a flawless album that perhaps mirrors the very essens of Prog, not to fear to include all kinds of styles, the variation of the music.

California is without a doubt Mr. Bungle most overlooked album.
