I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t like the s/t, but LOVE Disco and California. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a re-recorded 1986 high school thrash demo.
But it’s really amazing. Unlike most reunions this one isn’t a cash grab, has the signature Bungle feel, and sounds amazing. It’s the most pummeling, violent period of the band, re-recorded and revamped. Songs are great. Performances are perfect. And it’s an cool note for the band to end on, coming back full circle to the beginning. They could put out a album in any genre at this point. Love it.
Thrash metal 🤘
Thrash metal at its finest. I really enjoy this record.
Love it, thank u kings
Finally new intense music

Whoever rates this lower than 5 stars must be a Bieber or Cardi B fan. Impossible to not rate this album above many of the 80’s favorites. This is a lot of work put together for thrashers and Heavy Metal followers to enjoy.
Great Mr. Bungle album and thrash album
Bungles beginnings brought back to life properly..
I don’t listen to much metal anymore but I’ll be damned if this record isn’t phenomenal from front to back. I’ve always thought the OG demo had a charm to it, terrible recording aside, so getting this was truly a treat for me. Some folks seem to be under the impression that this is straight forward thrash, and while this is more straight forward then the first two studio albums (I think this one may be less straight forward then “California”), there is plenty of Bungle to go along with the thrash. It’s filled with amazing songs and incredible performances from everyone, it absolutely slams.
Each Bungle album is different then the last and this one upholds that tradition perfectly, it’s exactly why each one stands out. So happy they decided to do this!
Metallica did this (better) 30 years ago. This is like a low talent Metallica tribute band. What’s the point?
Vocals Ruin It For Me
Superb songs and musicianship (Dave Lombardo is fantastic as usual), but I can't listen to Mike Patton's vocals. He ruins what is otherwise an awesome album.
Love it, but where’s the rest?
I’m a big Mr. Bungle fan, and am ecstatic to see them “together” again. I pre-ordered this album as soon as I could, but so far I’ve only gotten 3 songs. Where’s the rest of it, ITunes? I should’ve had it a couple days ago. I go to look at it in the store, and there’s option for me to buy the rest of the songs, but nothing for me to get what I preordered. I’ve never had problems with preorders in the past. Hopefully just a mistake that will soon be fixed.

Come on guys, I get it. I get the whole plethora of talent involved here, and I was stocked to listen. But upon finally doing so I gotta say...my god this sounds very bland and boring.
