Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by 1800iareyay
3 stars Much better than his first solo outing, Pranzo showcases Patton in his avant-garde genius. If ever a man could replace Frank Zappa, it would be Mike Patton. This time around, we get actual songs as opposed to vocal experimentation. The collaboration with John Zorn gives Patton focus, which he often lacks. It's semi-conceptual and revolves around the "Futurist Cookbook." Don't ask. Patton excels at creating discordant tracks, and he combines dissimialr sounds to challenge listener. "Aerovivanda" has horns that mix with the sound of glass shattering, while the opener "Elettricita Atmospheriche Candite" has unsettling violin that is joined by psychedelic guitar.

Fans of FNM, Mr. Bungle, and Fantomas should be able to digest this. Newcomers to Patton should get Faith No More's The Real Thing and Angel Dust as well as Mr. Bungle's California, as these are the easiest to get into (that's not saying much). However, established fans should pick up this album if you can find it.

Grade: C

A much easier listen than the debut Patton album.

'Adult Themes for Voice' was an album focusing around Patton's main gun, which is his voice and unique, unconventional stytle. 'Pranzo Oltranzista' is a look on his composing efforts. The album is mostly avant- garde music, with a touch of some free jazz, probably because of the presence of musical genious, John Zorn.

My favorite songs of this album are all the ones with sound effects. I find those tracks to be some of the best 'noise' tracks of any of Patton's work with ambience and sound effects and the like.

I give this album three stars because it was good, but didn't have any mindblowing stuff. It was a tolerable album unlike the debut and had some pretty good ideas.

3 stars "Adult themes for voice", the first Patton solo release was quite a display of his amazing vocal imagination and his taste for experimental sounds, but it was, in my opinion, one of the least accessible albums of all time. Many pointed the lack of conventional instruments as the cause of its min ... (read more)
