  • 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
  2. Negative: 1 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]

    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.

    I did not get it at first but now its so obvios that Perry Farrell just uses another vehicle for his absolute genius. This record is not J.A. and not P.F.P. it is something unique on its own right!! It's just beautiful!! And a great joy to listen to it. It simply shimmers!!! Expand

    This cd is very original. You will not hear any other influence in the music other than authentic sounds of the natural musical world. Very refreshing, he does it again. Expand

    Just bought this record and it's on heavy rotation!! This is just something else!! IT's beautiful!! I believe this album is highly under appreciated!! You never find a second to this album. It's just a big trip through 10 different musicstyles and it sounds great. Even that is worth a big 10!! I give it 9 because 10 cannot be surpassed... I believ that 10 rating must go to the coming album of Perry Farrell with his new invention: The Satellite Party; that will be another great party!! Another thing; Song yet to be Sung is a very positive and spiritual cd. Somewhere I read it's Perry's 'Ray of light/Madonna' but only 10 times better!! ITs LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!! Expand
