Patton still whines and taunts like some snotty, obnoxious sixth-grader, only now to the accompaniment of Mr. Bungleā€™s heavy-handed, bungled attempt at blending metal with reggae, carnival music, and white-boy funk.
Mr bungle are fucking weird.

That's it bye
DAY 12 - @Pipe's Suggestion
[Genre(s): Avant-Garde Metal, Funk Metal, Experimental Rock]

This record has been the weirdest musical experience I've ever had the pleasure of going through. I absolutely love this record, there is not one single moment on the entire project that's dull, bland, or boring.

It's a odd album for sure. It's strange beyond belief. It gets so strange I often had to pause to catch my breath. But once the fever sinks in, once the urge to listen to this record starts to spread, once the itch begins to beg to be scratched, that's when Mr. Bungle's odd funk-circus-on-fire seems like an absurdist paradise.

Favorite jams: Girls Of Porn, Squeeze My Macaroni, Egg
