    Admittedly, it's hard not to respect Patton's creative adventurousness, but sweet Jesus, the gulf between admiration and enjoyment of one of his projects has never been so wide. [No.89, p.57]

    At first glance, it's easy to brush off Laborintus II as half an hour of experimental drivel, but those that stick with it and let it soak will be rewarded.

    I'm not sure why, but Mike Patton likes making an unorthodox music. Problem is, nobody else does. Let's admit it, the only reason anyone everI'm not sure why, but Mike Patton likes making an unorthodox music. Problem is, nobody else does. Let's admit it, the only reason anyone ever listened or rated bands like: Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, or Fantomas is because of Mike Patton. The guy is blessed with a special voice ranging from low baritone to high pitch scream, then he's a very good front man, but none of his music he wrote after leaving Faith No More is listenable. It's a worthless waste of time and your money. Better put on some old FNM albums than listen to this crap. It's shame, big shame, a front man with a voice like that wasting best years on that. I think one day he will realise he has made a mistake, and that nobody remembers him for all that avant-garde stuff, but for his days with FNM. And that's what he should have done, stayed with FNM. And now it's too late, they can only make couple extra dollars on one of these bull@#it reunion tours. Full Review »
