To the majority, this is Mike Patton's bad side; it is everything Faith No More wasn't. For those who thought Mr Bungle would be where he called it a day in terms of musical insanity, they don't know Patton. This is where he ditches the FNM tag for good. The different styles he has been part of before this release is enough to know that his next project will not be predictable in any way.

To get an idea of what's going on, take the aforementioned Mr Bungle (before the almost slightly more mainstream `California' album) and the rhythmic improvisation he has done alone on his four-track that circulates across the web. Make them metal, by adding such members as Ex-Slayer's Dave Lombardo. Now scale their songs down to 1 minute. Now sit back and be amazed. It is pretty sick stuff. Don't even think about trying to tap your feet as you wont be able to keep up.

The album is a sick comic book made into music, not consisting of track titles or songs but `pages'. The lyrics are non-existent, there is only sound, which is only suitable for those who have an open mind, a love of the weird and wonderful, a basic understanding of metal and a sense of humour. Hey, maybe it's not the desired effect, but I can't help but laugh through many of the amazingly complex bursts that hit you from out of nowhere.

The artwork is amazing. The concept will be dismissed by the masses as drivel. But Patton is involved in something he has always been most comfortable in - take the beginnings of Mr. Bungle for instance and how it's something you either love or hate. Whatever you think, it is good to see someone doing something different, even though all the options have been exhausted and to some, this is offensive and I find that refreshing.

This is an essential one for fans of Faith No More, Bungle ect. Mike Patton is "GOD" as such but what reviews have failed to comment is that: the music represents the drawings by Patton and another artist inside the CD sleeve. So when you next "wonder what was going through their heads when they record it", it's right there under your eyes. It's good, but I can't help thinking how similar it is to Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica; all his music is represented by art, and is just as bizzare but it just ain't as aggressive so it doesn't pick up as many knob heads on the way. Which is good.

but it deserves 5 star purely for being unlike anything i've heard ever. but then it actually is a very good album in it's own way, purely for Mike Pattons gibbering alone. No lyrics, just grunts and the occasional "yatyatyatyatyatyat" or something equally bizzare. The instuments vary from hi hat and symbol drum solos to big thrash metal guitar bursts. Genious, but you have to wonder what they were thinking when they recorded it.

This is an album of pieces ranging from thirty seconds to two minutes of noise. The first time you listen it will seem tinny, trebly and dischordant. Repeated listenings will bring out the incredible attention to detail and timing of the band, who cram more metal into thirty seconds than many emo, thrash or nu metal bands will squeeze into a whole album. No lyrics means no posturing, whining or agenda. It is so unlike what we are used to it may well languish in obscurity for being too different! Oh well...

Are you looking for the perfect antidote to Nsync, the Backstreet boys and Britney spears? Well here it is. On first listen you'll probably vomit, but put in in the c.d player again the next day and it will start to draw you in. By the end of the week you'll be humming along, but that's all you will be doing as there are no discernible words to sing along to. This is experimental heavy music at it's best and well worth a purchase.
