  • Summary: This is the debut solo release for former Jane's Addiction/Porno For Pyros frontman Perry Farrell. Many of the tracks are more electronic in nature than his previous output with the two bands. Dave Navarro, Jon Brion, and the Mad Professor are among the guest contributors.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 14

  1. Oddly enough, he not only makes it work, he makes it a whopping success.
  2. Despite the dominance of modern technology, this is still an album that adheres to the blueprint Farrell has laid down in his previous two outfits. More importantly, it moves into new musical territory and, coupled with his brilliantly versatile voice, makes 'Song Yet To Be Sung' a triumphant return for the latter-day chameleon of rock.

    Lots of rock stars have proclaimed their kinship for DJ culture, but Perry Farrell's passion seems to be one of the more genuine. [Jul 2001, p.82]
  4. 60
    The fusion is sweet yet corny... and occasionally it's just baffling. [Aug 2001, p.132]
  5. A totally modern album that manages to nearly ignore his wilful, malicious past and embrace the California smog/sun with a polished fervour that is almost nauseating to witness.
  6. Trades smarm-rock for half-baked one-world electro-pop, with predictably unctuous results. [17 Aug 2001, p.72]
  7. The disappointing result is mostly a collection of thin-sounding electronic drum beats and trippy effects that, were it not for Farrell's vocal accompaniment, would be altogether forgettable.
