There's a difference between you not liking his voice and it being average. Just accept that you're dislike is a matter of taste and that assuming he is bad because you don't like his music is sheer lunacy. I know someone who HATES Patton's music and recognises that his voice is unnaturally impressive. He uses it as an instrument in the most literal sense. His range is insane, his power unparalleled by any of his contempories and some of his music (FNM, his work with Eyvind Kang, Kaada and the Dillinger Escape Plan) is utterly brilliant.
Crudo??? whoa nice, I haven't read much on the recent activities of Patton. Last I heard was he did the voice-over for alot of the characters in I Am Legend.
Can't wait for that Mike-Dan duo. Been a fan of the Automator since he released the HandsomeBoy Modeling School stuff. Then discovered his old produced classic "Dr. Octagon" CD with Kool Keith- which is freckin' insanely hilarious.
He's a crooner. That's why I like him. On the flipside though, his voice sounds great on songs like 'Surprise you're dead'. Oh and 'RV'.
I always just found Faith No More's stuff to be really catchy. I don't know any of his side projects.
Mike Patton is my favorite singer, period. I just got a ticket to see the first Crudo show ever and I can't wait. If anyone is in the Bay Area, it's May 22nd at the Great American Music Hall and I think tix are still available
This Mike Patton is an amazing singer. Just blows my mind. This guy is not a great frontman or performer, his voice is average at best. Saying its lunacy cuz I think is voice is average, call it what ya want. Ya he makes the music he wants too, big deal that dont make him great.

Does not match with this...
1. you are HORRIBLE at sarcasm
2. You haven't listened to a single second of music the man has made
Mike Patton is a musical genius... he could possibly pass for God... after Ed of course :D
end of thread.
it's statements like this that i just don't get. i understand the differences of opinions, but there are so many people that seem to think that he is the greatest thing in music, but i can't get into anything he does. i've watched most of the videos posted in this thread only to stop them after a minute or so with an increased dislike of what he does!
i can normally respect someone's talent even though i do not like the music, but in Patton's case, i make an exception. maybe when i am older and my hearing is mostly gone, i will like his music more
Are you a huge Wolfmother fan by chance? I just have to ask.
heh.. not at all, though i did get that album and grew tired of it quickly. though if i had to choose between seeing a Wolfmother concert or seeing some Patton band concert, i would choose Wolfmother!
i must admit, i am interested to see what he is going with dan the automater. does anyone have any info on what this is?
Still my favourite funny Patton video:
Anthony Kiedis really was a dick to Mike back in the day. They did this concert to mock the Chili Peppers after Kiedis got Mr. Bungle knocked off the bill for a couple of major music festivals. The Chili Peppers had final say as headliners but Kiedis did it on his own. The bands manager apologized to Mike on behalf of the rest of the band after it happened and said that it was all on Kiedis.
What's odd is that those two had even met prior to this and Patton thought they had buried the hatchet but then Kiedis turned around and did that.
I don't blame Mr. Bungle for the mocking them. Plus, it's funny as hell.
I just gotta add another vid... this is my favorite Mr. Bungle song of all time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeZFyhZY84w&feature=related
everything by faith no more is fucking incredible
fantomas, eh... hugely dissapointed with the first one, like their concepts alot (remaking movie themes, recreating looney tunes music) probably will never buy another fantomas album, but i would burn a copy from a friend
peeping tom - sounded great for a while but i burned out on it. time to pull it out again, though
tomahawk - first album has some extremely good stuff on it, some that is just kinda whatever. curious about the other records
lovage - heard it once... pretty good... big automator fan, too
mr. bungle - "california" is fucking jaw-droppingly brain-blowingly phenomenal. don't know the other albums at all
never heard of this new band with the automator... thanks for the headsup.
but nothing he has done is great.
I cannot imagine how anyone could NOT love FNM's The Real Thing and Angel Dust
King for a day and the 2nd Tomahawk album
lemme guess, you haven't heard either
