Tzadik O (7015) Mike Patton: Adult Themes for Voice The debut solo album from a performer/composer who has worked with Mr.Bungle, the Kronos Quartet, Faith No More, Bob Ostertag and many others. Experimental sounds never imagined possible from just voice and microphone. Adult Themes is a classic which will both surprise and delight Patton fans and newcomers alike.
Mike Patton's Debut album will be released to the public on April 30th. It is called ADULT THEMES for Voice. I would have to say that this album is a definite purchase for any hard core fans. Most people that just like Faith No More or Mr. Bungle for their music won't like this album. I personally think this is a great album. However, if you are looking for an album with Patton singing his own songs, or playing his own instruments, you won't find it here. These are Themes, not Songs.
