a huge funkbomb...when all these new acts used some funk elements in their music..mindfunk did it the best..they had two videos for the coolest songs on this cd.. with ex celtic frost drummmer in their ranks this band had to be huge tomcat@dolfijn.nl

Since the infamous "M.O.D." bust up, Bassist "John Monte" and Guitarist "Lou Svitek" regrouped with ex-"Celtic Frost" Drummer "Reed St.Mark", uniform choice vocalist "Pat Dunbar" and "Chemical Waste" Guitarist "Jason Coppola" for some psycho-funk metal action. Now take a look at this line up and be flabbergasted at the out come of this CD not what you'ed expect but definitely ear candy to the most critical hard rock fan's. I definitely enjoyed this one!!!

A classic piece of inspired hard rock. yeah sure it had some funk elements and this still blows away the wailing meandering sound of the Chilli Peppers, My god that voice is so annoying, But who am I to criticise those rich funk rock posers. I used to cover "Touch You" in a band, no one had ever heard the song in good old Newcastle Australia but they seemed to be impressed by the end. A classic example of a great band that deserved so much better.

From: Kryiis Karl Date: May 4, 2003 at 13:06
Really a good band, with a hell of a drummer on this one (a bit too active sometimes). Next albums totally different, somewhat less interesting and fresh, though 2nd album is worth the value...sounds more like "prog grunge rock" stuff if that kind of music may exist but that's the idea let's say.

From: Gar Date: June 10, 2003 at 21:30
I had a friend who totally loved this album. Couldn't really see why. Musically, the band were pretty tight. It was the vocals that ruined it for me. The funk/metal style has been done to better effect than this(particularly on the Chili Peppers' "Mother's Milk"). MINDFUNK's 2nd release had a different singer and a slightly Grunge-y style about it, but I enjoyed it more than this one.

From: Dean Date: November 17, 2003 at 13:41
For me the singer was the reason i loved this disc-kind of like Mike Patton on the Real Thing. The slow song "Sister Blue" by itself is well worth the price of this disc. Don't understand the Chilli Peppers comparisions-to me that band is annoying.

From: Kryiis Karl Date: January 16, 2004 at 17:08
Listening again the 2nd album, I have to say that I like it as much as the first though it is different. In fact GAR is wrong, singer is the same on their 3 releases : Patrick DUBAR. Drummer changed between the 1st and the 2nd, Shawn JOHNSON replacing Reed ST MARK. Both are excellent, but the sound of drums on the 2nd is fantastic. The 3rd release is "People who fell from the sky". DUBAR is a very fine singer, and music made by MINDFUNK would not be betterened by a singer ala DANGER DANGER...

These guys are not Chili Pepper jr.They are a lot more Metal.Anytime a hard rock band plays funk chords(E7/9,Bmin7th) or plays single note funk stabs,people lump them into the chili pepper camp.Lots of bands play with a funk/hard rock feel...Like the BRILLIANT Electric Boys. It's all music in the end..Some is just better than others!!!!

From: Geoff Date: January 8, 2005 at 2:46
Not really my favourite disc ever, but it's decent heavy rock. Reminds me of a little less commercial Ugly Kid Joe... but for me only 'Sugar ain't so sweet' really does it for me. Really awesome song and I burnt this from it before selling the rest of it.

From: ppfinder2 Date: December 13, 2009 at 21:23
One of the most underated bands on the metal scene. This album is totally diferent then next two, but i love them all. Specially the 2nd "Dropped". Thank god this album exists.Rated 10/10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 21, 2012 at 21:37
One curiosity about this act is that it had 2 guys that were once from the extreme metal scene(Reed St Mark of Celtic Frost fame and Louis J. Svitek of Zoetrope fame)and put this Hard Rock/Funk fusion combo...not a very enthusiastic one at least to me..."Innocence" is the best track of the album and these also can be considered goodie ones:"Sugar Ain't So Sweet","Ride And Drive","Big House Burning" & "Touch You"...in agreement with ppfinder2 comment about their second album "Dropped",is better than this one IMO...70/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 22, 2012 at 9:53
If I recall, "Big House Burning" and "Sister Blue" both got moderate airplay on Headbanger's Ball back in '91. That was just when the show was starting to become a lot more diverse and not just playing the traditional '80's style music.

excellent debut for MINDFUNK ,a band that was very tlented and could be something more !heavy rock sound with great guitars,hooks and songwriting that always kept the interest!the production is very professional and overall the music is very well written and performed !all the songs are remarkable but "sugar aint so sweet" is the highlight!i remember i bought that vinyl when it was released and spinned it a lot ,as it captured perfectly the early 90 s spirit
