Peeping Tom (2006)

Details Release Date: May 30, 2006; Lead Performance: Peeping Tom; Genres: Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock

Peeping Tom, the latest project from former Faith No More frontman Mike Patton finds the mercurial oddball laying claim to a strange, largely unsatisfying strain of hip-hop-tinged metal. Each of the album's 11 tracks features a different collaborator, including Massive Attack, Kool Keith, and Norah Jones, who hisses, ''What makes you think you're my only lover?/The truth kinda hurts don't it, motherf---er!,'' on the clumsy freak-funk duet ''Sucker.'' But once you get past the shock tactics, Peeping Tom is little more than a pile of dated Linkin Park-style sludge.
