In 2006, after six years in the making, singer/producer Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantômas) added Peeping Tom to his impressive list of finished projects. Inspired by director Michael Powell's 1960 cult thriller of the same name, Patton spent years sending tracks to potential collaborators as diverse as Amon Tobin, Bebel Gilberto, Norah Jones, Massive Attack, and Kool Keith -- the latter three all contributed -- to construct a record that was completely bereft of physical intimacy. The resulting Peeping Tom, released on Patton's own Ipecac label, flirts with the esoteric while remaining surprisingly accessible, relying on a cross section of musical styles and artists that defies the term "genre." ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
