"...a friend saw the album and purchased it even though he never heard of the band before. He immediately made me listen to it! It was incredible! One of the BEST albums of all time! ... So I was surprised when I found out that this album didn't do well and Mind Funk was dropped from their record label. If you like ...rock 'n' roll like Appetite for Destruction then you have to get this album. I believe it is out of print so you may have to get it used. The most underrated band and album of all time. If you can find it, get it!"
Mindfunk go in hard

"The first album from this short lived 90's funk-punk-metal band and a noisy beast it is too. The ten songs on this album are fast moving numbers which hit like a jack hammer. Blistering waves of crunching guitars with a slight funk-metal edge. They only made this sound once - their follow up album 'dropped' while equally as impressive was in a different mould altogether. It's a pity this band did not last - this album is not easy to get hold of now but well worth obtaining if you your tastes include Faith No More, the Ramones and early Tesla."
Like no other...

"Mindfunk. This all-star line-up broke through with an album that takes you, the listener, on the ride of a lifetime. Full of energy, anthem, and musical perfection, this self-titled gem is not a concept album, but flows like your favorite horror movie. I cannot think of a band that sounds similar. The style includes wild rock energy, thrash-like guitar crunch, grunge creepiness, and an overall good-time-boy madness. (Borrowing the phrase from RHCP's Mother's Milk opener) The use of the wah pedal, the mad-cowbell, and Zazula's insane production all go together to create an unmatched carousel of musical insanity that every high-energy rock fan should own. Regardless of where these guys came from (M.O.D.,Ministry, etc.) you cannot guess what this will sound like. If you are into Jane's Addiction, Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Louder Than Love-era Soundgarden and Wrathchild America, you'll definitely love this album. Songs that stick out include: Sugar Ain't So Sweet- No better way to start. The cowbell is so loud it almost drains out the fuzz wah wailing guitar. Sister Blue: A bright assortment of acoustic meets gently plugged-in electric blues. The song sways with uncommon percussive rhythms and good, solid lyrics. In closing: be sure to seek out the alternate version of "Touch You" --> The title has a word switched out. You'll know it when you see it. The other word starts with an F. The follow-up album is mostly acoustic if my memory serves me well. It's no substitute for this record. Good Luck finding it in your used record store. I've seen it on cassette and a few CDs. It's purple and orange on the side- very easy to spot."
