Mr. Bungle In List Of Best Self-titled Albums

Ultimate Guitar‘s Wednesday Question back in August asked, what are the best self-titled albums. Mr. Bungle has land itself on the list.

As you’re probably aware Ultimate Guitar has a weekly question/poll.  Back in August, the question was about which was the best self-titled album ever released.  The criterion was that it had to be a full-length studio album.  EPs or live albums weren’t allowed.

Mr. Bungle’s self-titled debut album came in a respectable 13th place. Here’s how Ultimate Guitar described the album:

Experimental rock band Mr. Bungle, featuring our beloved Mike Patton, released their first studio album in 1991, and its genre bending was a key to the band’s success. With this mix of different styles it is unavoidable to get some negative reviews, with Entertainment Weekly calling it “unlistenable.” But who cares about EW, this album is awesome.
