5 stars This album does not sound like a prog album. It sounds like a bunch of albums strategically peiced together with little bits in each song. I had a time figuring out whether to give it five stars or not only because I wouldn't say it is prog. But this album is so great that there is no way it could ever get below five stars. Many people think of Mr. Bungle and they think of Mike Patton, but honestly, Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn have had just as much to do with Mr. Bungle as Patton. "Slowly Going Deaf" is actually Sleep Part 1, parts 2&3 are on "Disco Volante," all of which are by Trevor.

The songs on this album are each different then the others. "Dead Goon" has one of the craziest bass lines ever, Trevor has said that no bass player in their right mind would have created it (their drummer did). It goes from a creepy circus thing to a less creepy circus thing to a dark and sinister, suspenceful intro to a crazy parade; and that is only the first few minutes. "Stubb (A Dub)" begins with a sort of 80's ballad thing, then moves into a a evil funky fill, then a bunch of other pieces that I really can't discribe to well.

This is a very unique album, but well worth every penny you'll ever pay for it. You will begin to suffer from Bungle addiction before to long if you don't watch it. This music may be different in its own respect, but it is some of the best music that can be bought.

Spanky | 5/5 |
