This is their most eclectic release and it by far surpasses everything else they have done.

I believe this is an awesome album, I only bought it today, and have never heard anything else of Tomahawk's stuff, but being a big fan of Fantomas I thought I would try it. One word sums it up: Awesome! Stick this album on in the background while you are working if you can, listen to it a few times to get used to it, then actually sit down and really HEAR it. 4.5/5

wonderful review. i was considering writing one myself but my opinion doesn't differ much from yours, plus i doubt i could write anything more eloquent or insightful. thumbs up. this album is probably going to be in my top 5 for 2007.

This is probably Patton's best work since California even though it doesn't really come close to it.

I'm a fan of Patton in general, and I really liked their other two records, but seriously, this album drones, drones, and drones. I liked the catchier, mainstream aspects of Tomahawk simply because Patton has 15 other projects/bands where he can giggle and fart into a mic and make tons of money, so why Patton-ize Tomahawk too? Overall decent record but very, very hard to listen to at times.

Are you serious? This is still Patton's most accessible band, even with this album. It's surprisingly catchy, has a unique theme that I wonder why nobody had thought of it before, and overall just works. I've shown this to friends who have downright terrible tastes in music (Atreyu and the likes) and they've enjoyed it, which doesn't really prove my point at all once I think of it. Damn. Well, the only people who shouldn't find this fantastic are.... uh... Wolfmother? Whatever, I like this album too much.This Message Edited On 09.16.07

What I don't understand is that there are strict laws governing the use of Indigenous media outside of reservations. Many of the songs that were recorded in the books of that time are considered sacred artefacts of the native americans. Under U.S. national acts such as NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act), books such as the one that Patton found and used falls under the category of "an object of Cultural Patrimony" (as stated in Section 3 (a.2) of NAGPRA), which under NAGPRA is to be considered along the same lines as the Pope's hat. You don't see people going and "borrowing" the Pope's hat and then running around town or even embroidering new and modern stich work into it. These songs should be considered with the same reverence, even if the native group is unknown and the songs are "anonymous". I'm surprised that there hasn't been a case brought against the group, in which case they could find themselves in some seriously deep legal trouble. If you don't believe me, check it out - http://www.nps.gov/history/nagpra/MANDATES/INDEX.HTM . I dare you!

Popped this in for the first time (just got it today)...have to say...this is amazing. I love the Native American influence on them, and it definitely makes for a very unique album (though, as said, it's definitely more accessible than anything else Patton has done)

How different is it from their other stuff, considering I might pick that up, also?

I think if you're going to try to listen to this record, you should be VERY OPEN to just letting the music take you where it wants to go. The first time I listened to it I thought it was junk, but get to a quiet state of mind (not usual Patton listening frame, I know), and just let it wash over you. Btw does it remind anyone else of Zappa?

The way Mike Patton seamlessly intertwines various styles of hard rock and metal with the mystical chanting of native American chanting is beautiful.
