5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 4 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
It took me two years to listen to this album all the way through, and in the 5 years since then it's barely left my stereo. Once you've got your head round this piece of Bungle genius, its awesome brilliance will never leave your brain. My favourite album of ALL TIME.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this vinyl release!!!! 26 Oct 2012
First off, I love this album! It is beyond great in my mind, but this vinyl release from Plain Recordings is atrocious. The sound level is very low and the background noise levels are extremely high. There are constant hisses and cracks throughout the album ruining the whole listening experience. So PLEASE, do not buy this vinyl!!! Stick with the original CD until someone gives this classic a proper vinyl release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Magic! 30 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
It will sound like I'm contradicting myself somewhat here but this is the least coherent Mr. Bungle album and yet also their best. There are quite a lot of frankly dull moments that should really not have been included on the album but you can completely and whole heartedly forgive them because when the album excels, it's such sublime, awe inspiring music like you've never heard before and makes Disco Volante Mr. Bungle's masterpiece.
Disco Volante was a radical departure from their excellent debut - being even more experimental. Tracks this time round are more concerned with atmosphere, soundscapes, novel orchestrations and less concerned with structure often opting for an improvisational approach - it's only when you listen more closely that you realize these seemingly improvised passages are simultaneously played by guitar or saxophone or vocals - it's all completely pre-conceived, pre notated and illustrates the time and effort that must have been put into this record.
Like Mr. Bungle's other two albums, Disco Volante is wonderfully melodic, original and inspired in the way tracks will expertly incorporate an array of musical styles seamlessly and is impossible to pigeonhole. There's a heavy flavour of free form jazz here but as this is Mr. Bungle, you also get techno, metal, grindcore, cartoon music, seaside pier keyboards...the list goes on. I'll concentrate my review on the good stuff...
Chemical Marriage is a little gem and combines some of the free form jazz flavour, end of pier Hammond organ colour and eerie atmospherics. Great vocals by Patton here.
Carry Stress In The Jaw is very jazzy with improvised sax and vocal passages and is interrupted by perfectly timed passages of full on metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! 4 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yes. This is without doubt an absolutely amazing album. It is the best of the 3 Bungle Albums to date and that is a very hard task. Forget that Q gave it 2 stars. The reviewer wouldnt have given the album the required attention that it needs and diserves. This isnt an album that you will sit through one time and think, hey that was pretty good. You probably will hate it, its not music that you normally hear. Its just strange. It will take many listens (10 or so) before this CD sinks in, and when it does, it will be with you forever and never feel old or tired. It mixes so many different styles and instruments. Sitting through the whole album is just an amazing experience, full of melody and ideas. You really need to get this.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Mr. Bungle's second album is probably their strangest. Combining widely diverse genres of music (e.g. the song "Carry Stress in the Jaw", which alone incorporates death metal, be-bop and twelve tone music), most of the "songs" are some of the most original, intense and intellectually satisfying music that you'll ever hear, particularly in a "band" format. Especially worth noting are the aforementioned "Carry Stress..", the Eastern-techno "Desert Search for Techno Allah" and the avant-garde-cartoon-music "Ma Meeshka Mow Skwoz" (arguably, Mr. Bungle's greatest, most original and funniest song). However, despite all of the above good points of this album, there are some places where some of these loony aural experiments don't quite work; specifically, the opening "Everyone I went to High School with is Dead" lacks any subtlety and is a mindless chant-metal outburst worthy of....dare I say it...Biohazard and "The Bends" (8 or 9 short musical vignettes) is supposed to aurally represent decompression sickness and, although the murky feel and painful-to-the-ears ending does make a worthy attempt at this, the music is too disjointed and each vignette is almost entirely unrelated to the previous one(s). My other criticism of this album would be the lack of cohesion between the songs; although many of these tunes are some of the best that MB have ever produced, they do not all neccesarily sit together well on an album. This is partly because most of the music is extremely intense and there is so much to take in, making a "start-to-finish" listening of the album tough work (better to take it in piece-by-piece). Despite all this, Disco Volante is an album that anyone who is seriously into experimental music has to check out.

4.0 out of 5 stars one for the fans 16 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Marvellous. One of my top ten favourite albums. Pushing the boundaries of constructed music, with a little dose of experimental. This album shows where Mike Patton wanted to be at the time. Merry Go Bye-bye, starts wonderfully, a gentle whimsy of a tune d-d-drum-te-tum. this track is most worth mentioning as before long the loveliness of the ditty transforms into a grinding thrashing guitar frenzy which then degenerates into a whirlpool of noise, and then dissipates into a big band rendition of the opening verse. Wow! The album as a whole is fantastic. A different style almost from the self titled album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect album!
Big juicy burger made of grit salt and barbed wire. Subversive and jarring for the first couple of listens, but once you have "learnt" the songs, they offer a huge amount. Read more

Fantastic vinyl. However, it was creased on the corner when delivered. Vinyl is quiet when compared to others at the same hi-fi volume.
