2.0 out of 5 stars To obscure or its own good., 30 May 2011
This review is from: Disco Volante (Audio CD)
If your reading this your probably aware that Mr. Bungles Disco Volante is by far their most experimental effort and the worse for it. The album explodes into its deranged life with the awful "Everyone I went to High School With is Dead", a heavy metal number thats plods its way through the best part of 3 minutes. Things improve a little with a trio of schizophrenic but likable tracks, "Chemical Marriage", "Carry Stress in the Jaw" and "Desert Search for Techno Allah". "Chemical Marriage", probably the most mainstream track has trippy vocals courtesy of Patton and flitting organs/synths, while Desert Search for Techno Allah" is a middle eastern frenzy, but oh so brilliant. Sadly, this is where the joy ends. From "Violenza Domestica" runs nine awful, dark, obscure, long tracks of what can only be described as noise. Even the album closer "Merry Go Bye Bye", with its strong Beach Boys style opening is destroyed as they shift unknown music genres. After their funky self titled debut and the diverse but brilliant California, Disco Volante seems to obscure to even be enjoyed by the most patient music lover. Theirs no doubting the bands technical ability, but Disco Volante seems as though it belongs to an extra-terrestrial planet.
