    one of the few bands to actually capture the energy and spontaneity of a live performance. It's probably not for the majority of folks content on listening to more radio-friendly artists...

    This is an exciting album that will constantly surprise you, screaming, shouting, chanting, and mourning, some great vocals go on in this album. I love every single track from start to finish. Everytime Van Helsing Boombox comes on I have to whistle along, it's not even a choice anymore.

    Man Man's second album is just as good as their first effort "The Man in a Blue Turban with a Face." They have risen to the ranks of old school Waits, Zappa, Zorn and the Residents. For those Mr. Bungle fans who have been waiting for a similar sound, look no further, Honus Honus is your savior. Engrish Bwudd, Black Mission Goggles, Push The Eagles Stomach, and Tunneling Through The Man Man's second album is just as good as their first effort "The Man in a Blue Turban with a Face." They have risen to the ranks of old school Waits, Zappa, Zorn and the Residents. For those Mr. Bungle fans who have been waiting for a similar sound, look no further, Honus Honus is your savior. Engrish Bwudd, Black Mission Goggles, Push The Eagles Stomach, and Tunneling Through The Guy will have all "Experimental Rock" fans yearning for more. Two opposable thumbs up. Expand

    Six Demon Bag is one of those records that continually manages to surprise me with each listen. At first, there carnivalesque sound and antics could completely dismiss the listener, but let it grow on you and you can easily pick out the beauty of this record. Each track consists of different instruments and experimenting with different sounds, yet it still sounds like Man Man.

All In All, it's a tough listen at first. I almost gave up, but their is beauty to behold in this wacky record. B+ Expand

  1. The solution to enjoying this album, then, is to not ask it to provide heavy drama, high art, or fiery revolt – it's just pop music with a slight twist, and it's first and foremost about having a good time inhabiting glamorous guises and histrionic voices.
  2. Live it’s easy to ignore the subtleties of the songs, which makes Six Demon Bag a different, but equally great experience.
  3. More power to those who can do it, but from this perspective, it's nearly impossible to enjoy Man Man's Six Demon Bag while sober. [Apr 2006, p.222]
