  1. Kerrang!
    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]
  2. Q Magazine
    A rewarding curio. [July 2010, p. 128]
  3. Mojo
    The multifaceted Mr. Patton turns his hand to Italian-language pop songs. [July 2010, p. 95]
  4. Patton has spoken about his interest in revivifying and reinterpreting these songs, but here they sound mostly like Patton songs, affected by the same fascination with the quirks and power of his voice that colors most of his work.
  5. Unlike Patton's previous forays into the experimentalism of John Zorn or Merzbow, Mondo Cane delivers a more conventional set, heavy on romantic strings and swaying nostalgia.
