2 stars So I heard a lot of talking about Mike Patton, and how great he is... well, he is great! He has a fantastic voice, incredibly powerful but also very beautiful when needed, and he is incredibly creative and has that amount of insanity any good singer must have. So where to start with Mike Patton's work? I thought of the three most well known bands, Faith No More, Fantomas and Mr. Bungle, well so Faith No More is alternative rock, hmm... Fantomas is metal and probably too hard for me, so why shouldn't I start with Mr. Bungle? Avant-Garde sounds cool! And it does sound cool, but, the problem is the density, the complexity and the heaviness of the songs, while you can make it through for the first 4 songs quite well ("Slowly Growing Deaf" is amazing), "Egg", the 5th song, is a perfect example to resume this album, it is tiring, annoying, dumb and very very hard to follow, and, from now on, all the tracks sound incredibly boring, sure they all have catchy choruses, but they are so tiring and long! I consider it to be impossible to give full attention to the last track, you're just so tired and it just sounds like a directionless jam. This could be exceptional, if they had make the best out of this, but it just very hard to take this as an album.
