  1. A one-off that finds Patton remaking Italo-pop standards backed by a 40-piece orchestra, the record is flagrantly enjoyable from first gasp to final croon.
  2. Mondo Cane is surprising considering how engaging a listen these visits into grandiose operatic profundity really are. [Jul 2010, p.127]
  3. 80
    The Latin syllables are well suited to Patton's croon and snarl, and he attacks Fred Buscaglione's cavalier "Che Notte!" with relish. [Jul 2010, p.117]
  4. Mondo Cane is a summer-time staple and a faithful reminder that Mike Patton can sing but sadly little else.
  5. There's a lot of beautiful music to hear and Patton treats it all with an admirer's respect, but there is something about Mondo Cane that reeks of vanity.
  6. On one hand, it's hard to take seriously, but there's something disarmingly sincere about the whole thing and it's carried off with expert skill. [26 Jun 2010, p.52]
  7. 60
    The multifaceted Mr. Patton turns his hand to Italian-language pop songs. [July 2010, p. 95]
