All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Mr. Bungle is the musical equivalent of a David Lynch movie. On its uncompromising second release, Disco Volante, the group focuses its sound a bit more than on its 1991 self-titled debut but still keeps things unruly and completely unpredictable. This is a band whose sole purpose is to break all the pre-existing rules of music and doesn't think twice about taking chances. What they've created in the process is a totally original and new musical style and an album that sounds like nothing that currently exists. The group, whose members go by aliases, may be the most talented rock instrumentalists today, as they skip musical genres effortlessly, while Mike Patton illustrates ...

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Mr. Bungle is the musical equivalent of a David Lynch movie. On its uncompromising second release, Disco Volante, the group focuses its sound a bit more than on its 1991 self-titled debut but still keeps things unruly and completely unpredictable. This is a band whose sole purpose is to break all the pre-existing rules of music and doesn't think twice about taking chances. What they've created in the process is a totally original and new musical style and an album that sounds like nothing that currently exists. The group, whose members go by aliases, may be the most talented rock instrumentalists today, as they skip musical genres effortlessly, while Mike Patton illustrates why many consider him to be the best singer in rock. The group tackles plodding death metal "Everyone I Went to High School With Is Dead", deranged children's songs "After School Special", and a Middle Eastern techno number that has to be heard to be believed "Desert Search for Techno Allah". Many of the songs radically change genres mid-song, encompassing the sounds of Ennio Morricone, John Zorn, Frank Zappa, and other heretofore unthought-of musical mutations. Not music to unwind to after a hard day, but it will challenge your mind when the right mood hits.

    mr. bungle has almost completely changed the way i think about music. this is surely a masterpiece from the mind of Mike Patton. On some of Patton's earlier projects (faith no more) you weren't quite sure if he was being serious, or just a maniac with a microphone. With Mr.Bungle, you know that he is a maniac, but the kind that takes insanity seriously. This is one of the most influential albums Mr.Bungle has released, a genre-bending mind-numbing listen-to-it-all-at-once-and-your-head-will-explode kind-of music. Trust me, your head will explode in a good way.
