CD Review: Mike Patton – Mondo Cane

31 May have just published my review of Mike Patton’s latest solo album, Mono Cane – a wonderful romp through ’60s classic cinematic, lounge-style tunes all sung in Italian.

Excerpt: The prolific Mike Patton returns with a project unlike any that have come before it. Sung entirely in Italian, the album ‘Mondo Cane’ features a 40-piece orchestra, choir and band. Listeners have had hints of Patton’s multi-lingual abilities in the last, such as tunes found on earlier Faith No More releases. However, ‘Mondo Cane’ sees the twisted genius using his talents to pay homage to other songwriters, including his beloved Morricone, who penned the track ‘Deep Down’.
