Music On Vinyl - MOVLP1201 - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl 

Mr. Bungle is the eponymous debut studio album album by American band Mr. Bungle, released in 1991. Incredibly, the original vinyl version of Mr. Bungle was pressed on a single LP, which – with an album duration of 75 minutes – had a rather dull dynamic sound as a result. For the Music On Vinyl version, we've added another LP side to give the music more space to breathe. To top it off, it boasts a unique etch on the D-side!

Mr. Bungle is the eponymous debut studio album album by American band Mr. Bungle, released in 1991. The album contains many genre shifts which are typical of the band, and helped increase the band's popularity, gaining them a reasonable following and fanbase.
 
Critics deem the album a 'dizzying, disconcerting, schizophrenic tour through just about any rock style the group can think of, hopping from genre to genre without any apparent rhyme or reason, and sometimes doing so several times in the same song.' Mike Patton's lyrics are even more bizarrely humorous than those he used in Faith No More, and they're also less self-censored, as titles like "Squeeze Me Macaroni," "My Ass Is on Fire," and "The Girls of Porn" indicate.
 
This is a difficult, not very accessible record, and the band wouldn't have it any other way.

To say that Mr. Bungle is unfocused is like criticizing a rapper for not being able to sing -- it may be true, but it misses the point of the music. Mr. Bungle is a dizzying, disconcerting, schizophrenic tour through just about any rock style the group can think of, hopping from genre to genre without any apparent rhyme or reason, and sometimes doing so several times in the same song.
