The man is a legend. Bring it on Marj.
The man is someone I'd likely pass my vomit and poo over.
Let me clarify: None of his work appeals to me. Thus he's overrated.
He's made some great music imo. Likewise he's made some that isn't that great as well.
Marj: Even I don't love him that much
Better than Trent Reznor.
He scares me. End of story.
I know you love annoying Dean as much as I do D), but I'm curious as to how much of Mike's stuff you've heard. Faith No More isn't as insane or spazzy as say, Fantomas.
In a board full of people that seemingly think Trent Reznor isn't a genius, I don't see how anyone could argue Mike Patton is a genius.
Faith No More was the original nu-metal band. Fantomas is just garbage. Peeping Tom was Mike's attempt to get back into the mainstream with some WTF! moments of guest appearances, Tomahawk is just self-indulgent fap, and don't get me started on Mondo Cane (even though I'm quite looking forward to the train wreck possibility of the project).
I'll admit he's different, but legend? genius? no. he just can't make his fucking mind up.
IMO, Trent Reznor isn't a genius, neither is Mike Patton. A true musical genius is Paul McCartney, or Freddie Mercury. Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Brian May, Prince. Those are musical geniuses.
Oh pff, it's been a long time since I listened to any of his stuff and honestly, he has so many things I don't even remember what exactly I've listened to.
I just really, really don't like him and his music. He creeps me out a little.
I have nightmares about Mike Patton. It's not fun.
It's okay... I understand.
These threads have made me re-evaluate which musicians I'd consider geniuses, and I can't think of anyone that I definitely would.
I don't think Patton's a genius.
But he's definately not short on creative ideas to branch out into. I reckon he's quality.
I DON'T CARE WHAT MIKE PATTON IS, BUT FAITH NO MORE ARE THE MOST GENIOUS BAND EVER MOTHERFUCK.
People posting here from now on would better say they love King for a Day and The Real Thing or I'll have to use my whip. On a serious tone, everyone in FNM was a great musician, especially bass and keyboards. Never heard anything like that from another band.
