Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews

This is literally every musical genre fused into one.

You know when you ask somebody what type of music they listen to, the most common answer is a little bit of everything and it turns out they only listen to one genre. The next time that question is answered with "Everything" simpply reply, " Oh. So you must listen to Mr. Bungle." They will probably be dumb founded and then give you a whole hearted, honest answer.

1st album is the best

1st album is the best and I wish itunes would get it already, to me its a classic album and is much better than anything that followed.

Beyond and then some.

Disco Volante is a relentless beast of a record. A source of inimitable brilliance or pure torture depending on your constitution. You are either in or out from the start and that is what makes this affair so perfect. DV is like an incredible (ie: strange / scary / life-altering) dream you want to share with everyone but can't begin to explain because there simply exists no adequate language in any tongue. There are only a handful of albums that perfectly capture historically relevant shifts in music and this is definitely a key player that world.

Biography

Formed: 1985 in Eureka, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Mr. Bungle's sound and approach is a unique mix of the experimental, the abstract, and the absurd (in other words, the finer things in life). It all began in 1985, in a small California town named Eureka. The group (bassist Trevor Dunn, drummer Danny Heifetz, alto saxophonist Theo Lengyel, tenor saxophonist/clarinetist Clinton McKinnon, vocalist Mike Patton, and guitarist Trey Spruance) met while in high school and took their moniker from an extremely corny children's educational film regarding bad...
