I cleaned my copy and it looks very clean (was brand new when I bought it), I keep my stylus clean, etc, but this record (particularly Side B) produces a lot of pops and surface noise, which I honestly almost never hear on any other record I own, so I found that very curious about this release. I will try cleaning it again, but I dunno...

This pressing sucks. It is good to see that I'm not alone in having this opinion though.

I think PUNK & THRASH should also be in the description of the music. But that is just MY opinion.

And here it is, Mr. Bungle's final swansong to their already multifaceted and eccentric sound. Unlike Disco Volante which was a very erractic release from the Bungle camp, each song here is a well polished masterpiece. Where i've found the 2 other albums a little difficult to make all the way through these days, California remains a none stop ride of thrills. and the genres flipped effortlessly on this album is a real treat: surf, death metal, lounge, pop, balkan, doo wop... sometimes in the same song. Whether it is the simply perfect "retrovertigo", The gangster brass band metal sounding "none of them knew they where robots" the sad and relaxing "Pink Cigarette" or the videogame jazz funk of "Golem II.." there's plenty of great tracks here. As a experiment i used to listen to this album in the dark with headphones on. Its quite the experience as you never know what will happen next. an essential Patton project release. 5/5.

Excellent sounding vinyl! Very dynamic unlike the plain pressing. Great job MOV!

When I first bought this album on CD when it came out, I instantly fell in love with it. By the time it was over, it was already set in stone that it was my favorite album put out by any project involving Mike Patton. Listening to that CD I don't know how many times, I was never able to fully experience that feeling again... that is until I bought this MOV pressing. I have fallen in love with this album all over again. This is the first pressing I've gotten from MOV, I was hesitant because people have told me bad things about them, but if this is the kind of pressings they put out then I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more from them!

While Mike Patton doesn't release band-official vinyl reissues soon, MOV is the way to go for Mr. Bungle. I don't doubt this one also used digital files to cut the master (this album was recorded full-analog), but it sounds pretty damn good if you ask me.

This pressing is solid. Nothing worth stressing about if you love this album as much as I do and just want a copy that wasn't pressed with a potato.

Those band-official reissues are taking too long...

DO NOT buy this pressing from Plain Recordings... Just as other users have said, an amazing album but the sound is just terrible. Huge let down... Unluckily, I blindly bought their 3 releases under this pressing, and the 3 are just as bad, no wonder they were cheap. If you just want to have an object that spins... Buy this. But if you are here for the music, stay with the CD's or older pressings!
