Fantomas - _Fantomas_
(Ipecac Records, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (8.5 out of 10)
If singer Mike Patton (ex-Faith No More) isn't committed to an insane asylum after authorities hear this LP, I don't know what'll happen to him. He's off his rocker! He's flipped his lid! Comprised of equal shares of insanity, mayhem and brilliance, one can't go wrong with sampling the work of Fantomas. Don't be afraid, kids. With a supergroup of henchmen helping out in the wings -- ex-Slayer / Grip Inc. drummer Dave Lombardo and King Buzzo and co. from The Melvins --, this lil' puppy really socks it to ya. Put this on, sit back and listen to the madness unfold. You'll never get the image of Patton running around the studio screaming incoherently out of your head. In short, nothing sounds at all right here, but inexplicably it all works out in the end.
