"Hi, what you doin'?"

Scat Opera lasted a bit longer than many obscure funk metal bands, with two albums instead of one. Their debut About Time is a great funk metal album with the classic title track, but Four Gone Confusion takes funk metal to new levels not seen before.

It's like the band were listening to Voivod, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Donald Byrd at the same time. Dissonant stabbing thrash riffs meets some of the most energetic funky vocals and bass out there and some straight up jazz-funk metal. (I Dig That) Oral Mastication even has a short section with death growls when the guitars slow down the pace a bit. The Points of Madness and Men and Their Tiny Minds are the tracks where the jazzy horns come in making for a great meld of jazz-funk and metal.

Every song on here is fantastic, as throughout the whole album that band keeps the fun and playful vibe needed in funk metal with that added Voivod-esque thrash. If I had to pick a couple favorite tracks though it'd probably be Reminisce in Bitterness and Men and Their Tiny Minds. Maybe the most criminally underrated funk metal album, and one of the most underrated albums in general. If only the band continued on so there could be more of this fantastic sound and maybe even more expansion of jazz-funk metal.
