Schizophrenic much? Neither are we. (Yes we are.) Freak show auteur Mike Patton just might be as well. His fractured, multirange vocals often sound like a roomful of wacko personalities, and they all show up for his latest project, Peeping Tom. The collaborative album is an adults-only descent into noise-hop fantasy, with a slew of guest artists along for a slinky, kinky, top-down joyride. Massive Attack, Norah Jones, Rahzel, Dan the Automator, Kool Keith and many more take turns smutting up Patton's rock squawks, lounge lizard croons and twangy raps. Good, dirty fun.
