Arrangers: Daniele Luppi; Mike Patton. Mike Patton's previous work scoring a Morricone-esque soundtrack (A Perfect Place), covering themes from movie soundtracks (The Directors Cut), embracing the language and music of other cultures (Anonymous), and crooning (Lovage), all invariably had a deeper purpose: preparation for his most elaborate endeavor to date (which is saying a lot.) Inspired by time spent in Italy visiting his in-laws and listening to the oldies station there a decade prior, for this project the vocalist extraordinaire performs renditions of cinematic Italian pop songs of the '50s and '60s, all while backed by a 40-piece orchestra, a choir, and a 15-piece band. To add to the grandeur, the recordings are taken from live shows, with the best bits pasted together from a slew of European performances using studio magic. Most of the parts are taken from the tour's first intimate performances in Italy, which is fitting. Mondo Cane sounds authentically Italian. Patton's time in his second home in Bologna was apparently well spent. His grasp of the language is exceptional; he sings naturally with the comfort of a true native (and a flair for rolling "r"s) throughout the bulk of the release. "Deep Down" lapses into English, only because the original does, in a masterfully embellished version of Ennio Morricone's theme from Danger Diabolik.

Editorial Reviews:
Alternative Press (p.127) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he blazer of this album is Patton & Co.'s spine-shatteringly intense interpretation of the Blackmen's late-'60s civil rights anthem 'Urlo Negro'..." Mojo (Publisher) (p.95) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Patton] leads a 40-piece orchestra through booming big band swing, lavish '60s pop, soundtrack suave and slicked-back '50s crooning." Uncut (magazine) (p.117) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The Latin syllables are well suited to Patton's croon and snarl, and he attacks Fred Buscaglione's cavalier 'Che Notte!' with relish."

    Back in the 60's I had the record of "Mondo Cane;" may have been a movie soundtrack, don't really remember but it was so beautiful and I played it constantly so I thought this would be the same..................WRONG!!! DO NOT LIKE IT!!! I might recommend it to kids now-a-days but NOT to my generation
