  • This will be one of the most bizarre albums you will ever hear, as well as one of the best. Mr. Bungle (led by ex-Faith No More singer Mike Patton) crafts a sound that can described as, at the least, creative, and at the most, spectacular. “Disco Volante” is WAY outside the mainstream. The songs on here are hard to describe but here goes.”Everyone I Went To High School With Is Dead”-An all out sludge-fest. Probably the most mainstream song on the album without even being mainstream.”Chemical Marriage”-Sort of continues the circus music sound of their debut. “Carry Stress In The Jaw”-Improv jazz/metal stylings. Also has “The Secret Song” which sounds like Grandpa Simpson singing along to Addams Family music in a spy film. Excellent.”Desert Search For Techno Allah”-Just what the title says. Sounds like homemade Arabian techno.”Violenza Domestica”-Sounds like the soundtrack to an italian horror film. Complete with dialoge.”After School Special”-Chilling song. Great keyboards. Sort of addresses child abuse.”Phlegmatics”-Another jazz/metal improv.”Ma Meeshka Mow Skwoz”-Probably the most bizarre and outrageous song on the album. The lyrics seem to be in a language all it’s own.”The Bends”-Close your eyes and try to imagine a story set to the music. “Backstrokin’”-Sort of a doo-wop companion piece to “The Bends”.”Platypus”-Another jazz/metal improv piece. “Merry Go Bye Bye”-Starts out as a cheesy lounge number (in no means a bad way), then sonically assaults you with death metal riffage.
